Global legal intelligence and analytics provider LexisNexis has launched ‘Affinity Connect’ a new cloud-based practice management solution for small law firms.
Every day, legal professionals in small firms are frustrated that they’ve had to sacrifice features and functionality to get the flexibility of a cloud-based solution.
““With the industry moving to remote working arrangements and the IT challenges this presents, there’s a real need for cloud-based technologies that make it easy to work from anywhere, but still have the features you need to manage a practice effectively.”
— Greg Dickason, LexisNexis Managing Director Pacific.
“Lexis Affinity is a powerful option for mid-sized firms, used by thousands of legal professionals, but there hasn’t been a comparable option for small law, until now. Affinity Connect was created so small firms don’t need to make a trade-off. With Affinity Connect, firms get the full suite of powerful features in Lexis Affinity, but because it’s a fully managed subscription service and hosted in the cloud, there’s no upfront IT hardware investment and you can work from anywhere with an internet connection.”
It’s not just mobility that makes Affinity Connect a great option though. Affinity Connect comes set up with the best practice configuration and tools small law firms use including support for a range of common practice areas, key forms and precedents with support for all Australian jurisdictions and a suite of financial reports and performance dashboards.
Onboarding is quick and easy, with comprehensive online training and support included and optional data migration from a range of other systems.
Brett Gallard, Senior Product Manager, noted “At LexisNexis, our goal is to equip firms with tools to effectively manage and grow their practice while providing excellent advice and client service”. Affinity Connect enables this by giving small firms access to our premium practice management solution, with the flexibility to work from anywhere.
“Over the last 18 months, our customers have shifted from the law office to the home office, but the time, cost and lack of IT expertise to move to a cloud solution has been a barrier.
“Affinity Connect eliminates this challenge because it’s hosted in the cloud and fully managed by LexisNexis. And because it’s easily scalable, Connect expands as your practice does so you won’t experience growing pains. We already have our first customer on board, and they’re very happy.”
