Australian-founded global legal technology company Xakia Technologies has unveiled a Japanese legal matter management platform.
Xakia has partnered with JERA, one of Japan’s largest energy companies, to launch its dedicated In-House Legal Hub into JERA’s law department.
Speaking about the partnership and utilisation of Xakia’s platform, JERA general manager (strategic legal unit) Sawako Ogi said: “In a rapidly changing environment, adopting a simplistic, easy to implement and innovative matter management system such as Xakia was a top priority for us. Xakia removes time-consuming, manual processes for over 15 people in our legal team.”
Ogi-san added: “Xakia is about optimising our resources and improving the efficiency in our operations through strategic insights. We can now see what work is coming in, from what department, the type of work, the volume of work, the complexity of the work, the risk assessment, and that is really helpful for us because it helps us to allocate our resources.”
Xakia founder and CEO Jodie Baker (pictured), who recently featured on the inaugural episode of LawTech Talks, discussing how best Australia can get more women into leadership roles in legal tech, said that her company is “delighted” that JERA chose to facilitate its vision for an efficient and impactful law department through Xakia.
“In addition to streamlining JERA’s workflows to manage its legal workloads, deadlines, and priorities, Xakia’s data analytics power its interactive dashboards and reporting,” she said.
“JERA has removed wasted hours each month of manually pulling matter, intake, spend management, and resource reporting together.”
Xakia’s platform is built on four key features: legal matter management, legal intake and triage, legal spend and external counsel management, and legal data analytics and reporting. It can be configured to offer more than one language so internal clients and legal team members can operate in their language of choice, including English, Spanish, French, Danish, Dutch, and Portuguese (Brazil).
