COG Legal has reimagined legal eBilling. Legal eTeam is a digitally enabled, fully managed service, for in-house legal and insurance claims teams. This hybrid, digitally-enabled eBilling service combines legal eBilling, a legal operations team and a proprietary legal spend and analytics dashboard.
Having been rapidly adopted across the USA during the 1990s to automate the approval, or indeed, the rejection of legal invoices, it was considered that eBilling technology or eBilling software helped in-house legal teams to reduce administrative time while also helping to control costs, with many organisations reporting significant savings and rapid return on investment. Today, Legal eBilling systems are still one of the most widely adopted categories of legal technology and are typically utilised to reduce the number of invoices received in paper form or over email into a dedicated electronic system that gives in-house legal teams an insight into their outside counsel spend. However, with most systems being US-centric the adoption in APAC and EMEA has been much slower and more challenging, with many organisations still not getting the full benefit from their investment. Also, in an everchanging, and increasingly demanding business world, leaders are increasingly requiring more information and better financial management from their in-house legal teams. So, while traditional eBilling systems have their merit and have helped firms make savings, as business leaders demand more information on what has been spent legal eBilling is no longer enough as a standalone system and now should be considered as just one part of Legal Spend Management. The team at COG Legal have years of experience in administering eBilling systems and understand the systems challenges and limitations. In Legal eTeam COG Legal have reimagined eBilling and are taking it from just a piece of technology to a digitally enabled, fully managed service, for in-house legal and insurance claims teams. This hybrid, digitally-enabled eBilling service combines legal eBilling, a legal operations team and a proprietary legal spend and analytics dashboard
