Mitratech today announced the launch of TeamConnect Essentials, an easy-to-use, quick-to-implement SaaS legal operations solution designed for legal departments who want to leverage built-in best practices validated by 30 years of Mitratech’s client experience.
Essentials is built on Mitratech’s TeamConnect platform and acts as a central hub for all legal operations, including integrated matter management, outside counsel management, e-Billing, Microsoft® Office integration, and reporting, delivered as an adaptable, cloud-based solution.
“Thirty percent of FORTUNE 500 companies currently use TeamConnect as a platform for legal department innovation. We’ve taken our experience with those customers and others, coupled it with a streamlined implementation program, and created a unique solution for legal departments earlier in their transformation journey,” said Chris Kraft, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Mitratech. “And since it’s built on TeamConnect, it can grow and adapt as our customers’ needs change.”
Castleton Commodities International (CCI) joined Mitratech's Product Advisory Program and has been providing hands-on product validation since May.
“We didn't need a large enterprise-platform-sized solution,” said Howard A. Law, Vice President, Counsel, CCI. “We needed something simple, with a price point to match. TeamConnect Essentials is also very user-friendly and integrates with other applications we use every day, like Outlook.”
The time savings delivered by TeamConnect Essentials, coupled with the reductions in legal spend driven by automatically enforcing billing guidelines and improving the accuracy and payment of invoices, can save legal departments at least five percent annually. For most companies, that can amount to a significant return.
First, there are significant cost savings, including $250,000 per year in estimated staff time savings for a legal department of 10, and an average of 5 percent reduction in legal spend. How?
In addition, legal outcomes are improved with Essentials:
