Matter Manager is a comprehensive legal automation platform specifically designed for inhouse legal counsel to keep track of legal requests from business, legal matters and referrals to external counsel using customised legal workflows, while at the same time ensuring that all parties are kept up to date as to what information is required from them and the status of the matters.
Centralise and standardise your matter information. Matter Manager becomes a system of record for all types of sensitive information and enables you to have visibility about your overall matter while providing real-time insights for monitoring and tracking matters.
Our platform gives you a reliable and accessible way to track and monitor the status of multiple matters from beginning to end. The intelligence lies in the fact that the reporting and dashboards update as the matters are worked on. It further enables deep insights into matter activities and your legal expenditures. Matter Manager dashboards are used to visualize and display data on all matters. Matter Managers dashboard and reporting tool is powered by Microsoft’s Power BI platform. The system is flexible enough so that we can tailor-make reports.
An integral tool of corporate business units for years, project management has become important to legal departments, because of expanding client expectations, and the evolving role of external counsel. Matter Manager will stage manage your legal matter giving you the insight you need to ensure your matters are managed effectively.
Matter Manager provides you with an electronic filing system to store, track and manage all your legal documents, while keeping them linked to specific matters. This ensures that information is centralised and available to your broader team for secure access as and when required. Not only are the documents centralised, they will be automatically categorised, scanned and OCR’d using Microsoft’s cognitive search platforms. Making the transition to Matter Manager so much easier.
As a result of Legal Interact’s partnership with Microsoft, there is full integration between Matter Manager and the Microsoft suite of products. We believe that we need to build tools where our customers work so that we meet them on their tools.
The diary integration will allow you to sync your Outlook diary with Matter Manager and manage your diary from Matter Manager.

Using Word you can draft your legal documents and save them directly to a matter in Matter Manager.
Tailor matter templates and workflows to your specific needs, ensuring all legal documents are aligned to your business’ corporate identity, as well as compliance with your legal standards. Easily bring about any changes to the Microsoft-Word templates and collaborate on them with others within the organisation and track those changes.
With over 80 tailormade legal workflows from disputes to contract review and contract generation you can customise your legal workflow to suit your organisations requirements.
External User access allows you to grant access to specific parties who are involved in the matter. You can restrict the access on a per person basis.
Parties with access can, if allowed upload documents or update specific matter information.
Access can also be revoked at any stage, thereby safeguarding your information on the system.
We know how important it is that you provide a channel where clients can request assistance from legal. To that end we have created a Self-Service Portal that acts as the front door into the legal team.
Matter Manager uses Word online to collaborate with parties. To gain access to the collaboration portal a user has to be invited to collaborate and go through a secure 2 factor authentication process.
