FALLS CHURCH, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced it is now offering its comprehensive legal management software, Legal Solutions Suite, as a Software as a Service (SaaS) and has signed Society Insurance of Fond du Lac, Wis., as its first client for the SaaS deployment option. Society, a provider of workers’ compensation insurance for a variety of industries in the Midwest, will access the CSC-hosted offering via the Internet to improve transparency and consistency in legal matter planning and bill review.
Legal Solutions Suite helps reduce legal expenses by streamlining and managing collaboration with outside counsel. The new SaaS option offers low operational costs with usage-based pricing and an annual renewable contract term to provide maximum flexibility. Clients are able to access and manage Legal Solutions Suite in a hosted, standardized environment and achieve immediate savings of up to eight percent of total legal spend, without having to license and operate the software in their firms’ data centers.
“Legal Solutions Suite enables Society to decrease storage costs related to invoice management and produce accurate billing reports in a timely manner,” said William Bunzel, manager of Claims, Society Insurance. “By aligning our goals with outside counsel guidelines and using consumption-based pricing offered through the new SaaS option, we are better positioned to control our legal spend.”
“SaaS deployment options present opportunities for companies like Society to modernize processes and increase efficiencies, while reducing costs,” said Jeffery Schwalk, president of CSC’s Property and Casualty Insurance Division. “Legal Solutions Suite is ideal for this new subscription model because companies have the ability to scale up or down easily according to their legal management needs and pay only for what they use.”
