Onit Customer BT Group plc Wins Prestigious Legal Innovation Award
HOUSTON, June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Onit, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise workflow and artificial intelligence platforms and solutions, including enterprise legal management, contract lifecycle management and business process automation, today announced that Onit customer BT Group plc has won a prestigious Law.com Legal Innovation Award in the category of “Future of Legal Services Innovation – In-house Legal Operations.”
The award recognizes innovation in the delivery of legal services through deployments of new legal and business processes. In less than a year, the BT corporate legal department implemented Onit Apptitude, a business process automation platform, that replaced manual and disconnected process and management tools. The platform helped the department oversee and automate workload and matter management across the teams from inception to closure.
The BT legal department also plans to build and deploy new custom solutions on Apptitude to automate legal operations and compliance processes and better collaborate with business users outside of legal.
“Our vision for transformation reduced the number of systems running our matters by 75% so that we can now manage our matters in one place. In addition, we have brought together business, outsourcing and lawyers on a single platform to ensure accurate data capture and a connected workflow to manage the department’s caseload,” said David Griffin, Head of Technology and Change at BT.
“Congratulations to BT for their well-deserved win. BT built their vision on Onit Apptitude, matter management, legal spend management and legal service requests and transformed their legal operations with sarter workflows with enhanced operational efficiencies. Accomplishments like this exemplify Onit’s driving principle: Make it easier for lawyers to work,” said Eric M. Elfman, CEO and co-founder of Onit.
