Legal project management software using artificial intelligence leads the future

Manage Tasks, Delegate, and Visualize Work-in-Progress

Asana, Trello, and Zapier

Task-oriented project management software can help legal teams:

  • Break down complex projects into actionable tasks and assign them to appropriate staff.
  • Map out dependencies between tasks and prioritize the order of execution.
  • Store information in the cloud to facilitate universal access for authorized parties. 
  • Provide participants with a visualization of the project lifecycle.
  • Break down silos and improve cross-departmental collaboration.

Legal departments that recognize the benefits of next-generation legal project management have increased productivity and efficiency by implementing comprehensive cloud-based workflow systems that utilize these technologies. 

Compile Research, Convert Notes, and Exercise Due Diligence

Evernote

Feature-rich legal project management platforms further help teams: 

  • Eliminate printing, annotating, and physically storing files and folders.
  • Capture and save digital information for legal research in a variety of formats.
  • Scan and convert business cards and handwritten notes to a searchable digital format.
  • Share documents and notes across parties via the cloud.
  • Organize agreements, emails, and articles in one place. 

Evernote is an organizational platform used by many attorneys today. By creating a “notebook” for new projects, legal teams can aggregate, organize, and share information in real-time. As the project’s notebook expands, attorneys can easily search the collected materials. The ability to work across devices and access information remotely from any location underscores how digital project management platforms like Evernote contribute to the evolving ecosystem for legal project management.
