Two years ago, the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) surveyed its law department members about their technology, including several specialized kinds of software for law departments (See my post of Feb. 15, 2009: three focused applications.). That survey covered 45 respondent law departments; this year’s increased slightly to 54.
For corporate secretary and entity management this year, four departments reported that they use ComputerShare – GEMS while one department each reported using ICSA Blueprint or NetSuite – OneWorld. That set of applications represents a dramatic change from two years before when the results were Secretariat (Bridgeway) – 20 percent of those who responded and World Records (Transcentive) – 5 percent. The results also listed Two Step Software Corporate Focus – 0 percent and “Other” – 27 pecent. I think the remaining 48 percent had no corporate governance software.
