Data driven decisions

Consolidated data with less effort makes data driven decisions easier and operational insights more impactful

“One workspace is just more cost-effective;
it’s less effort and time to implement, and it’s one simple interface where both the legal team and the business work more efficiently ... no one wastes time duplicating work, looking for information in multiple places, or consolidating reports ... everything is right there.”

You could invest in separate CLM, matter management, and e-billing tools, or a traditional ELM. But why would you?

Technology option
LawVu legal workspace advantage
Legacy ELM
Traditional enterprise legal management and operations platforms can be complex and costly. More features than you need, multiple modules added over time, outdated interfaces, and the need for speciality resources can create friction, impede adoption, and diminish ROI.
A modern ELM option delivers critical features for multiple workflows in a truly unified platform, creating a positive user experience that speeds up implementation, fosters adoption, and is easy to configure and keep up to date without expensive services. Natively integrated CLM and a delightful intake experience drive better business engagement, too.
Point solutions
Singular CLMs, e-billing solutions, intake portals and the like can solve one problem well, but may have features you won't use and will require additional purchases, implementations, and integrations to cover your important workflows.
An integrated workspace solution means less time, effort and money are required to solve multiple worflows and generates greater efficiency for end users. Plus, you'll get the added advantages of a real single source of truth, including consolidated data, more context, and one place for the business to get their legal work done.
Homegrown or horizontal solutions
When solutions are not build specifically for in-house legal workflows, they can require heavy customisation, high IT involvement, or workarounds that limit productivity and introduce risk.
A workspace built for busy legal teams will let you get up and running and get value quickly, in alignment with your legal and business workflows. You'll also get more value and scale over time, because you can rely on a vendor to introduce high value features and resources to ensure your success.
