LexisNexis this morning announced LexisNexis Managed Services, offering LexisNexis Axxia dna as a fully-hosted, integrated practice management application to customers. This new Software-as-a-Service offering allows small and mid-sized law firms to easily adopt a next-generation practice management platform, without the need to incur additional capital expenditure to implement the solution or undertake ongoing administration, maintenance and upgrade costs to use the solution. The per user, per month subscription model means that customers can easily scale the solution up or down based on changing business requirements. As the management of LexisNexis Axxia dna is outsourced, customers’ IT departments minimise overhead costs and free up valuable time to focus on other strategic technology projects within their firms.
LexisNexis Managed Services is provisioned through a preferred alliance with e-know.net Limited a managed services and hosting solutions provider. Says Tim Cheadle, General Manager, LexisNexis UK Enterprise Solutions: “The combination of our extensive legal sector expertise and e-know.net’s successful track record of providing hosted solutions to this market makes LexisNexis Managed Services a compelling proposition. Furthermore, we intend to gradually expand this offering to include other LexisNexis products.”
LexisNexis Managed Services also offers LexisNexis Axxia dna customers the opportunity to host applications such as LexisNexis InterAction, Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, VoIP and document management. “This alliance is an exciting opportunity for both organisations. This formal arrangement will allow us to offer LexisNexis Axxia dna both as an ‘out of the box’ as well as managed bespoke solution, which will greatly benefit our customers. We have more experience in providing hosted solutions to the legal sector than any other service provider,” adds Nigel Redwood, Managing Director at e-know.net.
