Elevate Services Announces Beta Launch of Cael Legal Project Management Software
Cael LPM (Legal Project Management) software from Elevate Services makes project and budget management easy for lawyers and matter managers.
LOS ANGELES – January 24, 2013 – Elevate Services Inc., a global provider of consulting, managed services and technology solutions for law firms and corporate legal departments, today announced the upcoming beta release of Cael LPM™, its online legal project management software. Cael LPM is designed to make project and budget management easy for matter managers and lawyers, with a simple, practical interface for collaborating on and managing progress against matter budgets and task completion.
“Building LPM tools that are actually usable by lawyers is a real challenge – and probably the single biggest barrier to adoption. I think Elevate has solved that problem with Cael LPM,” said Ron Friedmann, legal project management expert and consultant at Fireman & Company. “The interface is simple and straightforward. Matter managers can quickly drill into ‘at-risk’ tasks or matters, fee earners can update task status and completion with a couple of clicks, and it’s all accessible via PC and tablet. This is a tool I think lawyers will actually use.”
Cael LPM was designed to incorporate best practices of project management while keeping the interface as simple and usable as possible. Features include:
- Accessibility on tablets and PCs
- Simple and intuitive interface requiring little or no training
- Straightforward tools for budgeting and staffing at matter outset
- Quick progress updates against tasks and deadlines with simple traffic light status indicators
- Automatic alerts providing early warnings of potential budget or deadline problems
- Strong security ensuring full protection of data
“I frequently speak with partners and law firm management about the adoption challenges of legal project management at law firms,” said Liam Brown, Elevate Founder and Chairman. “Providing a practical, easy-to-use solution for managing matters is a vital part of Elevate’s mission to help law firms improve practice efficiency. Based on early customer feedback, Cael LPM offers a real improvement in law firms’ abilities to adopt legal project management.”
The Cael LPM beta program is scheduled to launch in March 2013, with participants piloting the software and receiving expert LPM program guidance from Elevate’s legal project management consulting team. Beta participants will also provide substantial input into future features including integration frameworks, analytics and interface design. Elevate invites those interested in participating in the beta or tracking the progress of future Cael releases to visit www.elevateservices.com/cael-apps/#cael-lpm for more information.
