Legal Project Management software emerges: The Onit Beta


Thanks to a tip from Jim Hassett, I had the opportunity to see a demo of the new beta version of Onit Project Manager. This system fits nicely with Jim's "low hanging fruit" approach to Legal Project Management (LPM). Eric Elfman, a founder of the company, was nice enough to come by our offices and show us this new application.

First impressions: Simple and easy to use. Per my low hanging fruit comment, this is not your overkill project management software system. Instead it's designed to fit within the existing work-day of a lawyer. As such, it has good potential to provide the first step into LPM for a lawyer or firm.

As a SaaS application, it also has a low threshold for adoption. As a free application, it's something even Greg would use. So if you are looking for an easy, obvious first step into LPM, take a look at Onit.

Going forward, Onit will introduce an enterprise version with more administrative capabilities. Onit will also introduce a spend management system to complement the LPM offering.

Eric, as a founder of Datacert, understands this market and appreciates the needs of lawyers, firms and corporate legal departments. The application has some room to grow, so I will definitely keep an eye on it. Per Paul Easton, Onit is also looking for input from users, if you want to dive in even deeper.
