Needham, MA (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
Two Step Software, Inc. today announced that for the second year in a row, it has been recognized by the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) for its leadership in the legal technology market. In the 2008 ILTA Technology Survey, the company earned first place rankings in the categories "Software Used for Corporate Governance" and "Software Used for Stock Plan Management" for its product, Corporate Focus. Over 500 law firms responded to the survey.
"As legal and accounting requirements become more complex, we're focusing on ways to make it easier," said Gary D. Levine, President and CEO of Two Step Software. "Corporate practice groups at leading law firms rely on Corporate Focus to help them work more efficiently, impress existing clients, and even win new clients."
Used by 45% of the AmLaw 100 law firms, Corporate Focus is a powerful, browser-based program designed to track corporate governance records and total capitalization information for a firm's clients. The software centralizes the massive collection of corporate documents, entity details, and complex ownership information related to client entities, subsidiaries and affiliates.
Donald Parker, managing partner of Morse, Barnes-Brown & Pendleton, P.C., credits Corporate Focus with helping his firm win new business. "Clients clearly understand the role technology plays in legal service," he said. "Merely mentioning technology in a new business presentation has an effect. I've seen potential clients' eyebrows go up. They're impressed with the fact that we do it."
"Corporate Focus allows us to be competitive and to keep our sophisticated business clients happy. It allows us to compete head-to-head and to win business," Parker continued. "Our investments in products like Corporate Focus and our active use of them have gotten us where we are today."
According to Levine, the ILTA survey results confirmed that after 14 years serving the legal market, Corporate Focus is still the overwhelming choice of law firms for increasing productivity. "Today, when clients review bills more carefully and cost cutting measures are being put in place, it's not enough to just offer the best legal advice," he explained. "You must also offer technology that helps deliver legal services better and faster. For a growing number of firms, Corporate Focus is not only a time and money-saver -- it's a powerful client service differentiator that allows them to excel in today's competitive legal environment."
ILTA, the International Legal Technology Association, is the premier peer networking organization, providing information to members to maximize the value of technology in support of the legal profession. ILTA members come from firms and law departments of all sizes and all areas of practice, all sharing a common need to have access to the latest information about products and support services that impact the legal profession.
