“Legal Files is everywhere and anywhere and puts everything we might need right at our fingertips all day long.”
Last year when Rock County, Wisconsin, went in search of a new, electronic municipal law office management system, it had some very high and specific expectations, Corporation Counsel Richard Greenlee said.
The Corporation Counsel’s office, which is responsible for managing all civil legal matters on behalf of the County, “was well aware of how the right electronic system could help us meet that responsibility in the most optimal way possible,” Greenlee said. “But it had to be the right system.”
Essentially, the new system needed to be a comprehensive cloud-based litigation/matter management platform that would create one electronic repository that would contain all data, documents and records relevant to litigation and other matters. The system also had to allow Corporation Counsel staff to easily manage, store, catalog and research data and documents from both archived and electronic sources, including offering integration with Microsoft’s Office suite. The County issued a formal request for proposals and after evaluating them and viewing demonstrations, an award was made to Legal Files Software, Inc.
According to Greenlee, “One of the key factors in the selection process was Legal Files’ robust integration with Microsoft Office.” The software’s integration with Microsoft Office is seamless and one of Legal Files’ most notable features, allowing documents, email, contacts, appointments, scanned documents, etc. to be saved to Legal Files directly from Microsoft Office applications.
“Now that the system is implemented, Legal Files is the ubiquitous application I’d envisioned we’d select,” Greenlee said. “Legal Files is our one-stop-shop for managing all our legal matters, as well as serving as the centralized location for all file information. For us, Legal Files is everywhere and anywhere and puts everything we might need right at our fingertips all day long.”
Legal Files Software CEO John Kanoski expressed the software company’s gratitude for the opportunity to fulfill Rock County’s vision for its Corporation Counsel’s office. “The end goal of this project was to implement a system that would create efficiencies and facilitate the ability to go paperless by assuming the primary file and documentation management role,” he said. “I’m so pleased that Legal Files Software, and the dedicated team behind it, was instrumental in helping the County meet this goal.”
