Yerra Solutions Launches Yerra Clearly to Offer Legal Departments a More Comprehensive Legal Spend Management Solution

BASEL, Switzerland – 1 February 2016 – Yerra Solutions AG, a global Legal and IP services company providing consulting, managed services and technology solutions to Global Fortune® 500 clients, has announced that it will launch a new service offering called Yerra Clearly at the Legaltech New York show taking place 2-4 of February at the New York Hilton Midtown.

Yerra Clearly combines process management, proprietary software and expert consulting to deliver superior management of a company’s legal spend and improved cost-control results. The hybrid approach provides in-house legal teams with a level of support and sophisticated analysis typically missing in purely technology-driven solutions and more traditional outsourcing operations.

Both technological innovation and human intelligence is leveraged in the Yerra Clearly legal spend management process.

1.       Legal invoices are received in any format, the data is codified, standardised and loaded into Yerra’s proprietary analytics tool with no requirement for complicated technological integrations with other systems.

2.       Invoices go through both system and human review by Yerra’s trained staff in managed service centers around the world.

3.       Yerra’s highly experienced legal spend management specialists perform in-depth analysis of spend metrics to identify additional strategic savings and make recommendations on how to implement new processes and policies to accomplish those savings. Yerra Clearly incorporates data from a variety of systems and provide a complete view of legal spend from every angle.

4.       Yerra’s legal and procurement specialists negotiate with law firms directly on your behalf, saving you time and money. Yerra Clearly is system agnostic and is compatible with, and adds value to, whatever eBilling, legal spend management or enterprise legal management system a legal department is running. Clients have full visibility into their invoice data and reports at all times. Clients may also choose to have Yerra administer an existing eBilling system as part of this managed services engagement, eliminating the administrative burdens on legal department staff that have exploded in the decades since eBilling systems were introduced. Expert consulting services are included in cost of implementation, eliminating the need for costly external consultants.

Yerra invites all attendees at Legaltech New York to stop by booth 401 for more information.
