Elevate’s Cael Project Increases Transparency in Legal Industry
Project management software improves collaboration and communication between corporate legal departments and law firms
LOS ANGELES – Elevate Services, a global legal service provider, today announced the launch of Cael Project, an updated version of its law firm project management software previously named Cael LPM, now extended for corporate legal departments.
“Corporate legal departments have asked for live access to the software that law firms have been using to successfully manage projects against budget and schedule,” said David Bard, Vice President of Products and User Experience at Elevate. “Before we opened the platform to legal departments, we focused on ensuring that it really worked for law firms. Now we are excited to release Cael Project’s new features to give legal departments better oversight of all their projects across all their law firms, without having to log into different law firm systems.”
Cael Project provides risk, activity and budget status monitoring, messaging and collaboration on a single shared web-based project management platform, enabling law firms and legal departments to work together more effectively, while reducing email traffic. Cael Project continues to provide law firms with a platform for managing projects to scope, budget and schedule across multiple matters and for keeping their clients updated on status. At the same time, Cael Project now provides in-house teams with a dashboard of status and actual costs against budget across all matters and all firms, along with a built-in mechanism for communicating in response to ongoing updates.
“No other product in the legal market offers this level of transparency and communication between legal departments and their outside counsel,” said Bard. “As corporate legal departments increase their demand for practical legal project management, Cael Project gives law firms a competitive advantage in client service, while providing legal departments better visibility into law firm activity and costs.”
