Manage Contracts with Law Firm Intranet

Intranets are a great tool to improve operational efficiency, enhance resource management and even automate routine administrative tasks so your firm can run smoothly.

For example, think of the number of contracts that your firm must manage:
  • Office Lease(s)
  • Insurance Policies
  • Software Contracts
  • Sponsorship Agreements
  • Medical Benefits
Do you have a way of ensuring that all those various contracts are managed as efficiently and effectively as possible for each department?

What is the administrative burden and cost of missing a renewal date or other key requirement specified in one of your many contracts?

We have developed a tool that helps you manage all your contracts so you never miss a renewal date or key requirement specified in a contract.

FirmConnect's Contract Manager was designed specifically for law firms with a pre-built workflow to notify you by email in advance of any contract renewal. Every contract, managed by every key business function and department within your firm could benefit from the contract manager to keep your firm current and pro-active with all your contract requirements. Set it up to remind yourself or others on your team as you complete necessary tasks and mange projects efficiently and prevent things from falling through the cracks.

Branded Client Portals Are More Welcoming

Progressive law firms are offering clients with their own 'branded' portal in which the client logs in from the law firm website and lands on a client tailored page with their logo displayed. This provides the client with a much more welcoming front entrance to their information with their own branding inside the portal.

With Legal AnywhereConnect, this can be created very quickly by the law firm with minimal to no IT time involved and offers a significant advantage over using the generic commodity based file sharing tools that may not reflect the law firm's commitment to that client.

Legal AnywhereConnect™ quickly and easily transforms your extranet into a branded marketing tool to enhance your client service.

Contact Us for more information on how a branded extranet can positively impact your firm.

Leverage Firm Knowledge and Experience

You've likely seen the email someone sends out firm-wide asking about their experience with a particular judge or who'd they'd recommend for an expert or translator. In fact, you may see these emails all too often and even asking the same question over and over.

Progressive law firms are using their intranet to track and rate their experience with judges, arbitrators, mediators, experts, etc. Rather than send a bunch of emails and waste time, you can rate and review a resource you've used or worked with so the firm builds a collective database with a useful rating system.

Set your firm apart from the competition by leveraging the experience of your firm to work with the best resources your colleagues endorse. Quickly and easily prepare to appear before any judge with insight of your fellow attorneys you trust. Additionally, avoid re-using the resources your firm has not received great service from so your clients get the best results available.

FirmConnect® offers a pre-built ratings and reviews tool available right out of the box, in addition to many others in the workflow library.

Contact Us for more information on how FirmConnect® will enhance your firm's internal communication and efficiencies.

How secure is your file sharing?

Law firms are in the business of sharing sensitive information that require additional security measures. While email is convenient, it does not offer adequate protection. Other rudimentary file sharing sites can be more secure than email, but are often cumbersome and don't allow you the option to make files "view only" to prevent them from being downloaded and manipulated.

Legal AnywhereConnect™ is user friendly, built specifically for the legal profession, and offers the highest standards of security when sharing files. You can easily limit what people can see and what they can do in a client portal.

For example, you may choose to give an expert witness limited access to only see one folder or one single file in your extranet. Additionally, you can choose to give them access to download the document or limit them to "view only" and prevent them from being able to save, copy & paste, or even print the file. This feature helps insure that your firm is taking additional measures to safeguard the client's sensitive information so that it cannot be easily distributed unbeknownst to the client.

With Legal AnywhereConnect™ users are assigned security profiles down to the item level.
