iBPM leader makes list for its Responsive Application PlatformTM (RAP), which enables law firms to create cross-functional apps that self adapt to changing conditions

AgilePoint today announced that it has made CIO Review’s annual list of the 20 Most Promising Legal Technology Solution Providers 2014. The positioning is based on AgilePoint’s Responsive Application Platform (RAP), a revolutionary technology that enables law firms and corporate legal departments to create composite applications that incorporate other line-of-business systems. RAP applications are self adaptive to evolving conditions, ranging from procedural changes (the type that might occur over the course of time in a client intake workflow or in an attorney on-boarding process) to upgrades of component systems, such as SharePoint, SAP, SalesForce, or HotDocs.

“The legal services industry has been transitioning over the past few years,” stated Jesse Shiah, CEO of AgilePoint. “Disruptive market forces are compelling law firms to change billing practices, moving away from the traditional hourly-based model. This transition is driving the adoption of technologies such as RAP, which afford legal-services organizations tremendous productivity improvement while ensuring compliance with laws and regulations and, thus, lowering risk.”

Critical to AgilePoint’s emergence in the legal services industry is the ease with which RAP applications can be modeled and deployed. “RAP requires no coding,” stated Shiah, “meaning that the next generation of software systems in the legal services industry can be built by domain experts, a group that might include anyone from lawyers to legal secretaries, rather than computer programmers.”

RAP is a model-driven system that allows users to design applications and workflows by dragging and dropping system components onto a palette and then defining operational characteristics for each component using plain language. RAP includes a vast array of components from the most widely used systems in the legal industry, including SAP, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, and SalesForce. The inclusion of these components enables non-programmers to create composite systems that call on other important systems already in use when and where necessary. RAP supports flexible deployment options for on-premise, cloud-based BPM, PaaS, and hybrid installations.

AgilePoint was recently recognized by Forrester as a leader in the low-code BPM space and by CIO Review magazine as a top 100 Microsoft Solutions Provider. AgilePoint’s Responsive Application Platform is available now.
