The invoice review process is now paperless and automated and our colleagues in finance are receiving legal accrual and billing information with more precision and efficiency. This has freed up our legal team who have more time to spend on valuable legal work instead of time-consuming admin.


“Our legal spend management and reporting is now simpler, better and faster. Our copy-paste-spreadsheet days are long behind us and working with BusyLamp has delivered great value.”
