Commitment to Legal Industry
Onit underscored its commitment to the legal industry in 2012 with the launch of the Legal Department Operations Roundtable, a forum that highlights emerging trends, best practices and actionable insight to the Law Department Operations community. The forum, which offers peer networking, access to best practices, seminars and webinars, focuses on timely issues such as outside counsel management, budgeting, e-discovery, metrics and reporting and alternative fee arrangements. The Legal Department Operations Roundtable held its first event in September at the headquarters of CDW in Vernon Hills, IL and included presentations from some of the leading visionaries involved in law department operations.
The roundtable's next event, centered on Trends in Process Management, was held on January 24th in Houston and featured Harvard Business Review contributor, consultant and business process expert Brad Power. Events will continue throughout 2013 with visits scheduled for New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta and Chicago.
Onit leaders also lead valuable discussions at several prestigious conferences, including the Texas Lawyer's In-House Counsel Summit, the 34th Annual Corporate Counsel Institute and the Managing Litigation Forum 2012.
Onit was formed by legal software industry experts Eric M. Elfman and Eric A. Smith, co-founders of Datacert, a leading provider of enterprise spend management software. Launched in early 2010, Onit deploys Onit Apps to simplify business process automation and improve business productivity across all departments and industries. The Onit App Builder allows business users to drive efficiency and productivity by combining business process management, project management and information management into one easy to use tool so the user can create their own Onit Apps without having to rely on IT for support.
