Today Aderant announced the release of the latest version of its flagship product Expert, the number one practice management solution among the AmLaw 200. The Expert 8.2 release focuses on financial innovation and the agile professional. Outside counsel guidelines and the ability to manage and act on client rules, from data capture to billing to collections, are seamlessly incorporated into the platform. An enhanced user experience as well as upgrades to multiple modules support Aderant Expert’s enablement of law firm efficiency and increased profitability.
Financial innovation is a key objective as law firms seek to address manual steps that can be streamlined and automated with application features, wizards, and embedded workflows. Expert 8.2’s development focused on automation, workflow, auditability and mobility. New modules in the release include Accounts Payable and Disbursements with additional enhancements to streamline the WIP to cash process.
The proliferation of mobile devices in the workforce has created demand for technology that supports agility. Aderant’s mobile strategy continues to center on enabling the agile professional by creating easy-to-use applications for tasks with minimal data entry that can be done on tablets and other mobile devices inside and outside the office environment. Expert 8.2 offers a new mobile application that consolidates contextually relevant information that a timekeeper needs at their disposal, regardless of location or time of day. Additional enhancements to the Expert modules EA Pro, On-The-Go Time, MatterWorks, Expert Case, and Inquiries further support the agile professional initiative.
“As the legal profession evolves, so too does the technology that supports them,” said Emmanuel Kyrinis, Vice President of Product Management at Aderant. “Aderant Expert, from the very first version, was designed to evolve and progress with the times. Our development strategy involves interviews with our clients and third-party partners, our Product Innovation Committees, and our Release Candidate Program to ensure the new modules and major or minor enhancements to the existing modules target the key challenges our clients are facing. Expert 8.2 is an outcome of that strategic partnership.”
