Elegrity’s founding principal is to provide true business value to our customers over the long term through a win-win business partnership.
San Antonio, TX and San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
Cox Smith Matthews Incorporated, a leading Texas business law and litigation firm, announced today that it has selected Elegrity‘s Law Business Management System (LBMS™) software to enable rapid, effective deployment of the firm’s next-generation law firm business process improvement initiatives. The first project will include New Business Intake, Conflicts and Records processes.
Cox Smith, ranked Tier 1 in 24 practice areas in the 2011-2012 U.S. News-Best Lawyers® ranking of the nation’s best law firms in San Antonio, chose Elegrity over other evaluated workflow vendors because of Elegrity’s combination of legal industry thought leadership and leading-edge law firm BPM platform (LBMS™), which was built from the ground up specifically for the legal industry’s unique needs.
“Our clients trust Cox Smith to deliver value and tangible results in all practice areas and in each engagement,” noted Barclay Wong, Director of Administration. “Part of accomplishing this is ensuring our internal processes are efficient, effective and incorporate embedded risk management. With 130 attorneys in 5 offices, relying on published policies or simple workflows is not enough – we need tightly integrated, state-of-the-art systems that enforce compliance and consistency while simultaneously handling the nuances of everyday business.”
Elegrity’s LBMS™ system will replace Cox Smith’s existing, traditional workflow-engine based solution for critical functions, such as new business intake. “We have to be able to evolve and adapt our processes over the long term,” Mr. Wong emphasized.
“Elegrity’s founding principal is to provide true business value to our customers over the long term through a win-win business partnership,” commented Joy E. Spicer, President and CEO of Elegrity. “To deliver on that, we have to understand and empathize with our customer’s business challenges. We saw how weary law firms became when they suffered through lengthy (and sometimes never ending) workflow projects only to end up with point solutions and limited ongoing value. Starting in 2006, LBMS™ became the antidote for that pain for law firm business process improvement.”
Elegrity provides no-cost, interactive law firm business process improvement scoping workshops nationwide with select law firms.
“Our scoping workshop with Elegrity clearly established their thought leadership in how to improve overall law firm process execution while maintaining risk management in the rapidly changing legal industry,” continued Wong. “We were surprised by how much value the workshop provided in such a short amount of time. When we were done, we had a clear roadmap, scope, budget and Return-On-Investment for our first project.”
Ms. Spicer concludes “We very much look forward to working with Cox Smith. I am confident this will be a great partnership for both firms.”
