Whether your department uses an e-billing platform and wishes it could solve more of your problems with less manual effort or you need to graduate from storing information about your matters in spreadsheets and email accounts, we can help you bridge the divide between where you are today and where you need to be to better meet the demands of the business.
Cantilever’s Matter Management System is built on our own proprietary CrossLITE platform. It makes it easy for your legal department to keep a multitude of highly sensitive matter data at your fingertips. CrossLITE combines the functionality of many existing systems on the market and can integrate with many systems your company uses, giving you and your team one source of information and one site to work with. Store your matters centrally, associate critical documents, manage workflow, visualize the information, set reminders and aggregate your portfolio for strategic decision making and reporting.
Features of the system include:
The system is quick and easy to set-up, with legal departments typically online within weeks. Access can be controlled to enable internal teams and panel firms to all use the same central system while ensuring robust security, and multiple parties can open and view data simultaneously. In addition, mobile access provides on-the-go executives the ability to remain in touch.
All related documentation is stored centrally with the matter record, and matters can be formatted to show ‘parent-child’ connections (e.g. litigation and appeal). Robust filtering and search capabilities based on multiple criteria mean details of any matter can be found quickly and easily. Integrations enable direct feeds from legal suppliers, HR, e-billing and many other systems, to give a single view of all key data.
Rules-based workflows support your business processes, boosting accountability and shortening cycle times. Tasks can be assigned and alerts and reminders set to keep matters moving. In addition, easy access to best practice agreements and templates, along with standardized data fields that can be based on implementation at other clients, helps drive quality and consistency across large legal teams.
Dashboards can quickly be created to enable reporting and analysis, including standard ‘grab-and-go’ reports that make exporting information for meetings and audits painless. The system can also provide insights to support process improvement, while status displays keep all parties informed if bottlenecks occur.
Customizable to your needs
User-friendly drag-and-drop functionality lets any non-technical business user with the right permissions author 100% customizable forms to collect key information, so no more relying on IT or outside contractors to make changes. Users can also save filters to create personalized views and CrossLITE’s integrated dashboards can be quickly adapted to meet your reporting and analysis needs, while also providing the ability to drill down into the source records as required
