How to Automate Business and Legal Processes to Save Time and Money

This session covers how companies large and small use new, simple workflow technologies to automate all types of daily tasks, including approval processes, populating and electronically signing contracts and routing them to an existing online repository. Learn how your Corporate Legal Department can remove the friction inherent in manual, paper-based, or email based processes and be a more efficient, lean, productive and compliant organization.

Hear how technology can quickly change the way your legal team and other departments drive efficiency and client satisfaction.

– Identify: Find low hanging fruit (NDAs, SOX certs, new employee on boarding)
– Metrics: How to measure & realize the quantitative and qualitative benefits of automated workflows
– Execute: Discover how easy it is to automate business processes
– Build a Business Case: Understand how to build a business case with an immediate ROI

Building an Automated Global NDA Solution

Whether you’re looking for quick-wins to build goodwill across the business and establish your legal ops street cred, or you’re working to provide relief to an overtaxed legal team, building an effective, automated solution for managing non-disclosure can help you deliver a host of benefits for your organization.

Join this panel for demos of NDA tools and portal solutions, ranging from those focused on delivering quick self-service for your business to easy-to-implement, but more complex solutions, based on ThinkSmart’s TAP platform, facilitating both self-service agreement creation and custom NDA ordering. We will share practical advice and tips aimed at helping you drive efficiency and establish your own quick-wins, providing results and shortcuts you can implement right away.

Build vs. Buy e-Billing & Other Data Dashboards

With all of the talk about big data, data analytics, and defining core metrics, figuring out how to present the results of your analysis in a clear, thoughtful manner—and ideally in a way that allows for filtering the data for more views real time–is just as important.

In this session, Cecilia Yoshida and Jeffrey Franke of Yahoo will discuss Yahoo Legal Ops’ ongoing journey to try to build dashboard nirvana without relying on expert external resources. A variety of pre-built dashboard options will be shown to present eBilling and other kinds of key legal department analytics—just the way you want them.

This session will cover key criteria for deciding which path may be best for you, which solutions require IT support, what metrics should be of interest, the need/struggle to get clean data, and relative costs and benefits of the solutions presented, as well as present a number of actionable solutions for those with an immediate need for a legal ops dashboard.
