Even more uses for collaboration software !!!!

Recently, we worked on a project to put together a collaboration site for a client which allows one to track and manage a set of vendor-based projects relating to E-Discovery at the Firm.

It is a pretty interesting application of collaboration software which allows us to track project metrics, quantitative data and the qualitative opinions of project managers and end-users as to how the project was completed. The underlying database also provides the ability for some annual review of vendors used, volumes, quality, etc. which could be useful in obtaining better licensing and pricing terms or making process adjustments which could result in smoother projects in the future.

Project Management Offices

The use of formal project management methodologies as well as the creation of Project Management Offices (PMOs) to attack legal technology issues in areas like E-Discovery, Project Tracking and Litigation Support is growing quickly. There are many different articles on project management in the legal technology field in a fairly recent copy of PEER to PEER published by ILTA.
