York University General Counsel Implements Legal Files Software

“The move to Legal Files provides several advantages, including reduced staff time required to manage files, improved accuracy and timeliness of service delivery.”

Legal Files, the leading case and matter management software from Legal Files Software, Inc. has been implemented at York University, Canada’s third-largest university, the software developer announcement today.

Legal Files Software, Inc. was awarded a contract by York University last fall to provide its electronic matter management system and related services to the institution’s Office of the University Secretary & General Counsel.

“Like most public sector organizations, the Office of the University Secretary and General Counsel was looking for efficiencies and potential cost savings in its operating systems,” university Administrative Officer Sarah Millington said. Many of the existing systems are heavily paper-driven, she explained.

“The move to Legal Files provides several advantages, including reduced staff time required to manage files, improved accuracy and timeliness of service delivery, greater capacity to generate relevant performance metrics, improved ability for multiple people to work on a file simultaneously, and, of course,” Millington said, “a reduction in use of paper.”

The contract award came after the university evaluated Legal Files Software’s response to a formal request for proposals for a legal matter electronic document and record management system. In addition to the licensing of its software, Legal Files Software, Inc. also provided onsite implementation assistance, project management and training as part of the project.
