Internet Based Litigation Management Application Will Allow Enforcement of Client Specific Litigation Handling Guidelines, Collection of Data and Performance Analysis
San Diego, CA, September 1, 2005 – CaseRev, Inc. today announced that Crawford & Company has partnered with CaseRev, the industry’s first truly automated on-line litigation management system, to pilot a flexible and highly automated litigation management solution.
CaseRev is an on-demand service that effectively automates client specific protocols. In addition to reducing costs, it improves claim durations and eliminates court-adjudicated penalties associated with improper delays and missed reports.
This all-encompassing remedy is not a legal bill review process; it is far more. It provides an independent, reliable, and scalable process that includes:
Client specific guidelines
Multi-tiered performance metrics
Vendor drop box (enables assignment and electronic posting of reports/photos)
Prompt, effective communication and flexible protocol enforcement is ensured between all members of the litigation process. Claims professionals, risk managers, and legal counsel benefit tremendously from this streamlined application that ensures strict adherence to spending thresholds, report generation based upon predetermined events/ timelines, and alerts for all partners should an activity become overdue.
As well as instant views of all claims for risk managers, CaseRev also provides instant messaging capabilities right from the screen where pertinent documents and other case information are located. Access to the secured environment can be obtained from any location with Internet access. Moreover, the straightforward implementation process enables almost immediate system usage without tapping into your IT resources.
One of the most important features of this robust litigation management tool is the elimination of costly auditing to objectively measure legal firm and individual attorney performance. Reports that gauge attorney compliance with handling guidelines and other areas of effectiveness will now be at the client’s fingertips.
“CaseRev is an exciting new way of managing litigation by, for the first time, effectively enforcing a company’s own litigation handling guidelines on a proactive basis. CaseRev enables clients to make sound business determinations when making case resolution decisions.
