REPORTING & ANALYTICS

Capture all your buying data on a single, centralized platform

Empower your team to make data-informed decisions with information that has been historically hard to capture, organize and make sense of — until now.

  • Accurately estimate what matters should cost by reference to historical and relevant pricing data.
  • Measure law firm performance (including: savings, bidding behaviour and bidding success rates) at matter, practice area and team levels.
  • Review your law firms’ recommended strategies for success for all matters (at no cost) and leverage that valuable advice.

  • Set assessment criteria to evaluate law firms, on a matter by matter basis.
  • Standardize how you score and evaluate law firm proposals, at scale.
  • Demonstrate to the executive team that the legal function is operating like a business and not just a ‘cost center’.
