This procurement webinar, the first of a series involving experts from the LSSA, and accompanying LSSA white papers, aims to set out the essential items for legal software purchasers to consider when buying new legal software. The expert LSSA panel provide a guide and effective checklists to maximise opportunities and avoid pitfalls during procurement and implementation.

For legal software purchasers, procuring new software has been seen as a daunting task. It is not something that occurs very often and can strike fear in the heart of the IT partner, possibly due to a previous bad experience. However, times have changed, and data interoperability has improved substantially. Legal software suppliers are more adept at transferring data and have various tools and products they can deploy to ensure data can be safely and securely migrated.

A decision to change software product should be exciting. Legal software users should concentrate on the benefits it will bring to the business. Many technology businesses rely on excitement to drive adoption of new devices and new software products.

The webinar is hosted by Tim Smith, chair of the LSSA and CEO of Insight Legal Software, in discussion with expert panel members Elwyn Morgan of Timeslice Ltd and Angela Hesketh of Smoove. The panel discuss 7 key areas to consider and actions to take to ensure an effective new system selection for your firm.
