The platform, GoToConnect Legal, is designed to address the needs of legal professionals by streamlining collaboration with clients and colleagues to maximize billable hours, according to the company.
With much of the world still using videoconferencing and unified communication platforms to communicate, the legal industry has suffered with professionals unable to find a solution that allows them to minimize unbilled time, maximize revenue, manage regulations and maintain high security, the company said, citing data that suggests lawyers are underbilling as clients prefer to meet with legal help virtually.
GoToConnect Legal is designed to solve those pain points by providing a secure platform on which to meet clients while integrating commonly used legal tools for billing and tacking.
According to LogMeIn, the legal version of the GoToConnect platform can track billable time through integrations with practice management tools such a Clio and LawGro, and activity from Outlook, Google, Chrome, Fastcase, Westlaw and Casetext can be automatically filed in timesheets.
The platform also provides a more streamlined call logging and the ability to schedule client and internal meetings via Calendly and create video meetings directly from the user’s calendar.
In addition to a secure audio and video meeting solution, GoToConnect Legal icnldues messaging, contact center capabilities and other functions.
Mike Sharp, chief product officer of UCC solutions at LogMeIn, said there are many benefits of adopting a cloud-based collaboration solution for legal professionals.
“GoToConnect helps enable this shift by providing key technology integrations that work seamlessly with the law firm’s existing ecosystem. Combined with the native features of GoToConnect, these integrations create a more streamlined and unified collaboration experience for our legal customers, helping them deliver high-quality, and easily-billable, services to their clients.”
