sa.global launches legal360 practice management solution in North America
Built on Microsoft’s Dynamics 365 platform, this next generation cloud-based practice management suite dramatically alters the law firm software landscape, and will be featured at ILTACON 2019 in Orlando, FL.
Atlanta, GA – August 14, 2019
sa.global® announced today that they have officially launched their legal360 optimize practice management software solution for the North American marketplace. This launch marks the first fully integrated sa.global version of the software following their acquisition of the LexisOne® solution from LexisNexis® earlier this year. Rebranded as legal360 optimize, this new solution is a key component of sa.global’s integrated legal360 business management suite and a cornerstone of the organization’s legal industry strategy.
Built on the award-winning Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform, legal360 is the most modern and comprehensive business management platform designed to meet the unique needs of law firms. legal360 optimize provides integrated time, billing & accounting, matter management, and human resource management capabilities through a familiar Microsoft user experience. By using a single system for financial management, business development, client relationships, and HR/Talent, the legal360 business management platform helps law firms streamline their operations. In addition, embedded analytics and Power BI insights empower firms with real-time insight. The solution is 100% mobile for those on-the-go.
“For years, law firms have been forced to run their business on outdated, disconnected systems from different vendors. Trying to gather critically important business intelligence information was a huge challenge,” explains Stephen James, Global CEO for sa.global. “This solution is the only fully integrated cloud-based end-to-end solution in the market today and we believe that by leveraging the incredible power of the Microsoft Business Platform, we have created something that is going to be truly disruptive in the industry.”
sa.global’s product development team brings 20 years of law firm and Microsoft Dynamics 365 development experience to the legal360 portfolio. This team has made significant enhancements to the capabilities, including a module for Client Matter Inception (CMI) and a new mobile timesheet based on the PowerApps platform that works across iOS, Android, and browser formats. legal360 is now available with Cash Based Accounting, Client Trust Accounting, and a fully integrated back-office Finance, Business Intelligence, and Reporting Suite.
“Disruptive is the best way to describe this new development, and in my opinion, it combines the best of several worlds for today’s future-focused law firms,” stated Whit McIsaac, Americas CEO for sa.global. “Microsoft’s leading global provider of business management applications to professional services firms is leveraging Microsoft’s proven and trusted cloud platform to deliver the most modern practice management suite available today. Our legal360 optimize solution offers unmatched next-generation capabilities around mobility, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence, as well as integration to popular Microsoft tools like Office365 to help today’s most progressive law firms gain a 360-degree view of their contacts, clients, matters, finances, and professionals.”
This Microsoft Dynamics 365 based platform represents a significant opportunity for Microsoft to further penetrate the law firm marketplace as the legal industry begins to more aggressively adopt cloud-based technologies. “The combination of sa.global’s legal360 suite, along with other Microsoft solutions such as Office 365, Azure, LinkedIn, and Power BI, provides the first ever end-to-end solution for law firms based entirely on the Microsoft platform. This is truly a game changer for the legal market,” explained Patrick Fitzhenry, Microsoft Dynamics Global ISV Partner Director.
