AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Mitratech, the leading provider of enterprise legal management solutions, announced today the release of the next generation of its highly agile and sophisticated TeamConnect platform. While the 4.0 version of TeamConnect continues to offer fully integrated, comprehensive legal management products Mitratech is known for -- including matter management, spend management and e-Billing, contract management, legal hold, and compliance solutions -- this highly configurable and upgradable platform revolutionizes legal technology expectations.
"Today, legal departments are offered two choices: they can get up and running quickly with out-of-the-box products and process apps that offer limited functionality, minimal security, and only basic configurability OR they can spend months and millions of dollars implementing a complex, robust enterprise solution that is likely going to take the same amount of time to upgrade a year or two from now. We don't believe either of these options is satisfactory," said Mitratech CEO Jason Parkman.
"The new TeamConnect allows legal departments to stop compromising. It offers the robust, sophisticated functionality that TeamConnect has long been known for -- while ensuring that the product can be implemented, administered, configured, and upgraded in an efficient and sustainable manner, resulting in lower total cost of ownership for our clients. We know that both of these goals are incredibly important, and we are thrilled to offer the only solution that fulfills both of these needs."
Early results show that an average TeamConnect client will see the payback period on their initial investment cut by 43% due to increased configurability, faster implementation, and new functionality.
Key components of the latest release ensuring that legal administrators can configure and maintain the solution efficiently and sustainably include:
- Highly configurable financials and collaborative budgeting that enable clients to track spend and reduce costs using the methods that work best for their business
- Best-in-class workflow design that offers the flexibility legal departments need to handle both simple and complex procedures, while removing administrative burdens and improving efficiency
- An easy-to-use screen design tool that allows administrators to quickly modify existing screen designs and generate new designs from scratch without the need for any customizations
- Enhanced search and record editing functionality that improves TeamConnect's usability, leading to improved adoption and productivity
For clients on the new TeamConnect, upgrades are also much simpler due to the high configurability of the solution (reducing reliance on customizations) and the availability of new tools designed specifically for TeamConnect upgrades:
- An upgrade toolkit that offers a suite of tools that significantly reduces the time and effort to perform upgrades
- An enhanced API layer that ensures any customizations that clients create are easily upgradable from version to version
These enhancements, combined with the deep existing functionality of TeamConnect, offer clients a sustainable platform for innovation -- one that enables the legal department to be the best-run function in the corporation. By consolidating management of all critical legal functions, TeamConnect gives legal departments greater visibility into legal operations -- helping to increase legal staff productivity, improve collaboration with internal partners and outside counsel, lower total legal spend, and drive more predictable and strategic business outcomes.

What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
