Butch and Sundance. Holmes and Watson. Thelma and Louise. The list of legendary partnerships is long and varied, and the stories behind the famous affiliations are often as fascinating as the characters themselves.
That’s no less true for one of the more talked-about partnerships formed recently in the world of business. Microsoft and LexisNexis have recently joined forces to develop LexisOne™, an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for the legal industry. Helping law firms to transform their business by bringing together employees, information and business needs within a single solution to better serve customers and manage their business in today’s increasingly digital world.
LexisOne combines the legal expertise of LexisNexis with the proven enterprise foundation of the Microsoft® Dynamics® 365 platform delivered on the Azure cloud. The result is an ERP solution for legal that goes beyond traditional practice management. The partnership gives law firms the best of both worlds: the agility, scale, and security of Microsoft’s infrastructure, and the familiarity and transparency from the industry leading legal provider your trust.
Mutual Chemistry at Work
Like the partnerships celebrated in popular culture, the LexisNexis/Microsoft alliance is based on mutual attraction. LexisNexis wanted to team up with an experienced ERP partner that values the professional services industry, and offers a configurable, flexible, and accessible platform to work with. For Microsoft, the attraction included the prospect of penetrating the legal market by throwing in with an established leader. Long story short, a mutual magnetism too strong to resist resulted in a match made in the cloud.
Law Firms Benefit from the Partnership
Uniting the expertise of two leaders in their respective fields enables LexisOne to provide rich business intelligence and robust analytics in a cloud-based platform that Integrates seamlessly with MS Office 365, SharePoint and other standard Microsoft applications. LexisOne synchronizes financial, human resources, productivity and performance management to provide the insight, flexibility and scalability that firms need to rapidly adapt in an ever-changing world.
A Global Partnership
LexisOne has capitalized on technology currently being used by more than 30,000 companies worldwide, the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform, which adheres to global accounting practices and is multilingual and multicurrency out of the box. As well, the Microsoft Azure cloud platform has a network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 42 regions worldwide, giving it a truly global footprint.
Roll that up with the legal practice management expertise that LexisNexis has honed over the decades and you’ve got a dynamic duo that’s transforming the world of legal services by helping firms around the world proactively manage costs, prepare and track matter budgets, improve control, make informed decisions, and optimize resources to deliver greater value to clients.
