Nelda Young, the Contracts and Litigation Manager at Celerity, Inc., recently posted a comment on my LinkedIn group, Law Department Management. It deserves wider circulation.
“I’ve created a true “tool” for my Legal Department. It is a customized Microsoft Access database that combines the working data and documents for all functions of the department with a user-friendly dashboard that the General Counsel can easily utilize. It features intuitive drill-down through main tabs for legal functions including Contracts, Corporate Records, Outside Counsel, Intellectual Property, Research, Budgeting, Forms, Legal Dept Admin, and more.”
That is quite an application. Some matter management stirred in with document management and a dose of knowledge management. On top of that the drill down function and dashboard. It sounds impressive.
