It is our mission at AdvoLogix to apply increasingly innovative technology to help these organizations better manage their cases and matters – and, in fact, their businesses – so they can improve service delivery, manage risk and do more with less,” said Jonathan Reed, CEO of AdvoLogix.
Within the past year, AdvoLogix identified several processes in dire need of improvement at legal organizations and attacked these inefficiencies with the company’s software development resources. Platform updates have addressed: client and matter intake, project management, business processes, calendar and schedule management and conflicts checking. This latest release addresses the legal hold process and adds additional enhancements to the intake process.
AdvoLogix improves the legal hold process with several new time-saving and compliance features. One prominent new feature gives users the ability to quickly manage their pending legal hold acknowledgments. A new Legal Hold History view allows organizations to centrally manage recent legal hold acknowledgment activity. New email templates allow users to customize all legal hold correspondence, including the original notification, the reminder and the removal (from legal hold) notice, among many other legal hold process improvements.
New client, case and matter intake has been improved with features that will save time and reduce errors during intake and throughout the lifetime of a case. Forms now can capture lists of information related to intake. Supported are the ability to upload files, add comments or attach other related records during the intake process while prompting for specific information based on the user’s prior responses. Forms are reusable and easily modifiable for rapid response to new intake demands.
