A common legal platform to improve collaboration – client success story in the Automotive industry

A globally-based automotive parts manufacturer committed to cutting costs while improving profitability and manufacturing capacity. In order to meet these goals, a world-class legal team was needed to support its growth, improve efficiency, and reduce overall legal spend. Their existing legal department was not capable of transforming into such a world-class legal team as they stood. A new GC was brought in to put together the right staff and technology to meet the automotive manufacturer’s new goals. The GC knew from previous experience that the foundation had to start with matter management. He selected Questel’s Orbit ELM enterprise legal management software to initiate their dramatic transformation.

Within the first year, they realized:

  • Reduced turnaround times on contract and NDA reviews from 6 weeks to 10 days
  • Improved collaboration between the global network of legal departments and Japanese headquarters
  • Focused on making strategic decisions, not managing the technology
  • A common legal platform to enable sustained growth
  • System functionality that fit within existing processes rather than requiring process changes

In the morning, we open Orbit ELM when we get in, and it’s opened all day long. We also use the system at home, because anyone with security privileges can access the system from anywhere – including their mobile phones, “stated the General Counsel, Global Automotive Manufacturer.
