Lawcadia, FYB team up to transform government team functions
Cloud-based platform Lawcadia and information governance management solutions business FYB have created an integration to help government teams digitally transform their legal functions.
Lawcadia announced the “deep integration” with Micro Focus Content Manager (formerly TRIM), which it said had been done in response to high demand by government legal teams for streamlined, connected solutions that enable them to maintain compliance with records management legislation.

Speaking about the integration, Lawcadia founder and CEO Warwick Walsh said that law departments in government are “often restricted in their use of best-practice intake and matter management solutions because they must meet their legislated records management obligations”.
The leaders of such departments commonly rely on email, Excel spreadsheets and clunky manual workflows to manage new and current legal matters and documents, he mused, whilst continuing to manually update and maintain an enterprise content management system.
“Government legal departments are at risk of falling behind the industry, which is now embracing legal technology and efficiency measures like never before,” he said.
“In collaboration with FYB, an award-winning Micro Focus technology partner, we have developed an integration with Content Manager, the leading provider of enterprise records and content management solutions to the government sector in Australia.”
FYB CEO Daniel Dawson added: “We are thrilled to have developed an integration that will help to solve significant frustrations experienced by government legal teams.
“This integration enables government organisations to tackle two challenges at once, the need to comply with mandated obligations, whilst also delivering the required level of efficiency and digital transformation for the legal function.”
The integration – named Law2CM – will offer government teams access to Lawcadia’s intake, self-service, matter management, spend management, collaboration and document automation solutions, automatic transfer of information and documents from Lawcadia into Content Manager with the right folder structure to meet internal requirements, as well as the ability to access Content Manager folders and documents without leaving Lawcadia and an assurance that they are capturing and managing records in accordance with record-keeping and other compliance requirements, mitigating risk.
