Houston, TX (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Bridgeway Software, the most recommended provider of legal service management solutions, today announced that several New York City (NYC) entities have selected LawManager® to electronically manage their legal matters and improve the speed and services they bring to residents. Through a city initiative known as CaseMatters, each of the participating NYC offices can more effectively manage their case load and legal matters, and better handle their administrative case management needs. LawManager is already in use at several city agencies including the New York City Law Department.
Originally deployed in August of 2013, LawManager has now been selected by the following:
- Conflicts of Interest Board (COIB)
- Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB)
- Office of Collective Bargaining (OCB)
- Office of Administrative Tribunals and Hearings (OATH)
- Civil Service Commission (CSC)
Leveraging LawManager, each individual NYC agency has control over their own matter management functions and data including the ability to grant or deny access to users, modify automated workflow, and control business and routing rules. This capability will improve the services and information the agencies are able to provide to the public on a timely basis. By allowing legal teams to define rules-based work processes and notifications, and by automating document production with a powerful document merging feature, LawManager streamlines workflows and significantly reduces the time and effort needed to manage legal matters. LawManager also has a variety of reporting solutions that are each designed to address specific requirements and different users, enabling users to create custom reports with a built-in reporting tool.
"While other applications require users to change the way they work and conform to the fixed business processes that are built into their matter management products, LawManager is designed to allow users to configure the system to work the way their business dictates with minimal changes to business processes," said David Samia, Vice President, Engineering and Product Management of Bridgeway Software.
