LegalStratus from Arbola is a dynamic legal matter management system designed for legal departments and government agencies. Built on Salesforce.com, LegalStratus combines everything users expect from a Matter Management and Global eBilling system with the features, security and reliability of the most recognized platform on Earth.
All Practice Areas - In Nearly Any Language
Designed from the ground-up as a legal case and matter management system, LegalStratus provides users with intuitive access to information from computers and mobile devices. The system provides a unified approach to managing all practice areas from litigation to contracts, IP or internal legal projects and is capable of interacting with internal and external users in over a dozen different languages.
Law Firm Portal
Outside counsel can submit electronic, or enter manual, invoices in the LegalStratus Law Firm Portal and review billing guidelines, AFAs, budgets, accruals and timekeepers while communicating with internal staff via embedded instant messaging. There are no charges associated with invoices, value or quantity.
The LegalStratus Public Portal can be configured with forms and materials to keep citizens and outside agencies apprised of matters and related information. Entries from the portal can be routed for internal review and approval and optionally converted into new matters.
Infinite Configurability - Automatic Upgrades - Always Supported
The configurability of LegalStratus enables System administrators to extend the system to cover additional practice areas and workflows long after the implementation while maintaining a fully-supported system that includes three upgrades a year at no additional cost. The Salesforce ecosystem provides administrators with an infinite set of on-line resources from training video to step-by-step tutorials. Any resource familiar with Salesforce can manage, augment and maintain the LegalStratus system.
Organizations that have Salesforce.com can choose to augment licenses with LegalStratus while others can implement LegalStratus as a standalone SaaS solution.
Users can update multiple rows within a single screen with in-line editing. View of selected fields can be set up to reduce the volume of information presented to simplify data entry and updates across multiple records.
Graphical, Intuitive Tools
Administrators can leverage the powerful workflow and approval tools in LegalStratus to configure an unlimited number of workflows and approval processes. Documentation on each process can be generated with a mouse click for internal reviews and approvals.
Users can send instant messages to colleagues inside and optionally outside the organization while reviewing any information in LegalStratus. Government organizations can collaborate on matters across agencies with personnel in and outside the legal department in real time.
LegalStratus can bring users directly to where their attention is needed. Information that requires attention such as matters with no activity, can be presented to users on their home screen, via push notifications on the LegalStratus mobile app, via email or through the internal instant messaging system.
