Passport® Pro Featured at Legaltech 2017 

Jan. 31, 2017 —Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions, the global market leader in transformational, technology-based solutions for legal management, will launch Passport® Pro, a new pre-configured version of the highly acclaimed Passport® ELM (Enterprise Legal Management) platform at Legaltech, Jan. 31 – Feb. 2 in New York. 

Passport Pro is a hosted solution that offers a comprehensive menu of essential legal matter and spend management features and best practice based workflows that come ready to install, resulting in faster implementation. Corporate legal departments with less complex legal workflow requirements, limited internal IT capabilities, and legal departments of less than 100 users are best suited to use the solution.  

In addition to its flexible and high-performing feature set, Passport Pro includes the new Office Companion module that allows users to manage their matters directly from inside their Microsoft Outlook application. Office Companion enables legal professionals to increase productivity and efficiency by allowing them to perform legal operations tasks within the familiar desktop tools they use every day.              

“Because it's built on the powerful Passport platform, users have the flexibility to extend the solution to address expanding business needs,” said Barry Ader, vice president, Product Management and Marketing, ELM Solutions. “With the launch of Passport Pro, we are expanding our ability to touch a more diverse set of customers and helping them transform their legal operations. Combined with recent investments in infrastructure and feature enhancements to our SaaS-based TyMetrix 360°, now available as a ready-built solution, Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions is making a bold step forward in executing against its long-term strategy to offer the most comprehensive, multi-product portfolio in the industry.”  

With an ELM system in place, corporate legal departments can boost legal performance, improve efficiency, have greater insights by leveraging their own data, and more effectively manage and control legal spend. ELM systems can quickly generate a positive return on investment. According to a recently released ELM Solutions white paper, “Building the Business Case for an Enterprise Legal Management Solution,” a typical mid-sized corporate legal department can see a potential first-year savings upwards of $800,000 with a system that enables integrated e-billing and matter management.
