Am Law 100 firm Ballard Spahr selects InOutsource and Qlik data analytics platform

InOutsource, a global legal consulting firm, today (2 April) announced a services engagement with Ballard Spahr that delivers business insights through data analytics. Ballard Spahr—an Am Law 100 firm with more than 650 lawyers in 15 U.S. offices—selected the Qlik Sense Enterprise business intelligence platform for data visualization, analytics, and reporting.
“In evaluating ways to make our data more accessible to users throughout the firm, we found that Qlik Sense provided the most intuitive display of financial information, allowing our attorneys and staff to drill-down quickly if they have specific questions about the data,” said Lisa Mayo, Director of Data Management at the firm. ”The InOutsource team worked with us to develop an extensive proof of concept that considered an enormous amount of our historical data. Their understanding of Qlik Sense allowed for the seamless pairing of our data with their technology in a way that allows us to draw insights far more quickly.”
The Qlik Sense Enterprise platform enables users of all skill levels do more with data. With Qlik Sense, firms can combine multiple data sources, create custom dashboards, and easily explore the data using interactive selections, global search, and a powerful array of smart visualizations.
“Data analysis is a cornerstone of value-based pricing, matter management, budgeting, and efficiency improvement,” said Melissa Prince, Chief Client Value Officer at Ballard Spahr. “The data insights InOutsource is helping us to achieve with Qlik will enhance our Client Value Program, particularly the information we deliver to clients through Ballard360, a suite of applications we developed in-house and something we consider to be a differentiator in the legal marketplace.”
