Eversheds Sutherland Ignite Turns to Autologyx® to Fast-Track Innovation

Published by on 24th November 2017

Today, Automation as a Service specialist Autologyx®, announces that it is working with Eversheds Sutherland Ignite to accelerate the adoption of new technologies and processes within its managed services for in-house legal teams.

ES / Ignite, a specialist division of top 50 global legal practice, Eversheds Sutherland, was set up in 2015 to meet the demand from in-house legal teams to outsource high volume, low risk work such as Statements of Work, Non-Disclosure Agreements, Renewals & Extensions, Short Form Agreements and lower value Supplier Contracts. A rapidly expanding client base and the desire to future-proof its web-based system, prompted the Ignite team to partner with autologyx.

The team recognised that the Autologyx® next-generation Fabric Automation® platform would not only enable them to achieve greater efficiencies on a number of the outsourced processes they already handle for clients, but also fast-track the integration of innovative new processes and convergent technologies, such as utilising Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) within legacy environments. Ignite customers therefore benefit from the opportunity to explore the impact and rewards of these new technologies at minimal risk and cost.

Barry Rodick, product owner at Eversheds Sutherland Ignite comments: “There are lots of companies out there selling the benefits of RPA. However, in reality there are few that have the technology and processes in place to enable them to work with teams like ours – where the focus is on innovation – and scale rapidly. Since our launch we’ve been able to deliver significant cost-savings to our clients through automation but what we really wanted was a solution that would enable us, and our clients, to accelerate innovation to deliver tangible business growth. The Autologyx® platform offers us exactly what we need; we’re currently only using a fraction of its capabilities but we’re already seeing significant returns.”

The Autologyx® Fabric Automation® platform enables non-technical users to generate sophisticated automated processes through a ‘no-code’ user environment without the traditional integration and deployment barriers. The platform’s Think. Build. Connect. Run.®  functionality is enabled through the use of simple drag-and-drop functionality and a powerful, ready-to-use components library, allowing deployments to be made within days rather than the usual months and without the need for external consultants.

Ben Stoneham, CEO and Founder of Autologyx® added: “Our Fabric Automation® platform not only enables businesses to take control of automating processes in a fraction of the time of conventional software, but also enables clients to become much more innovative. This is the real value of Autologyx® – the ability to catalyse innovation, and we’re excited to see that Ignite and its customers have already recognised the transformation of their processes and obtained real business benefits.”
