Law firms are increasingly being asked to demonstrate fluency in legal technology, including by recommending technology and innovative solutions to enable clients to deliver more with less. Clarilis can help with this, bringing value to both parties and strengthening your relationship with those clients.
With traditional approaches to automation your firm or your client would need to source the intermediaries, document analysts and technical staff required to implement their automation project. You may have some or all of these skills in-house, but these are usually fully utilised and would be unable to dedicate the significant time and effort required to automate the relevant precedents in a timely fashion. There would also be a steep learning curve when developing best practice in relation to automation and in creating the processes required to enable that. All of these elements add time, expense and risk to any technology-based solution you recommended.
An alternative solution may be to engage a legal engineering service provider to handle the automation and maybe also the ongoing maintenance. This again adds to the cost and complexity by introducing another party to the project.
However, technology implementation can sit harmoniously alongside your role as providers of knowledge and advice. Unlike traditional automation tools the Clarilis solution is delivered as a fully managed service on the market leading CLARILIS™ automation platform. Projects are delivered in a fixed timescale and for a fixed price. This delivery includes document harmonisation, automation design, technical automation, comprehensive testing and document maintenance.
This removes all the uncertainties associated with traditional automation projects, including the people and process aspects. This means you can be 100% confident in recommending precedent automation to your clients – delivered in conjunction with Clarilis.
Clarilis can also bring new ways of collaborating with clients. For example, instead of clients sending unstructured instructions via email and your fee-earners laboriously re-keying critical data, both parties simply share access to the CLARILIS™ questionnaire. Quick, simple, structured and secure.
