About Johnson Hana
As Ireland’s first alternative legal solutions provider, Johnson Hana is a trailblazer with forward-thinking views on the legal industry. Their vision is to transform the legal industry, so that it works better, for everyone.
With a team consisting of expert lawyers, project managers and technologists, their focus is on smart deployment of technology to supercharge the outputs of legal functions. Johnson Hana has repeatedly shown that their solutions can save on legal spend by over 50%. This excellent reputation is reflected in their ever-growing client base of the world’s most forward-thinking, quality focused businesses.
Johnson Hana’s team of expert technologists and project managers needed a flexible, easy-to-use solution to integrate into their client engagements. With a busy workload, the core team didn’t have time to undergo lengthy training or client integrations. They wanted a platform that fit with their way of working but would help them cut costs and increase productivity for their clients.
Providing the solution with Summize
Johnson Hana’s values – cutting legal costs, increasing productivity, and saving time – were an obvious match to Summize’s offerings. Here at Summize, we don’t believe tech should cost an arm and a leg. Nor do we think solutions should be implemented to replace lawyers or change how they work. Our platform aims to work alongside our users, assisting with and speeding up the low-value, time intensive tasks.
With our flexible pricing plans and modular structure, the team at Johnson Hana were able to select the features and Add-Ins that were most useful to them. And there’s no restrictions on changing this – at any point, user permissions can be added, changed or removed by the team within the platform itself. Additional users can even be added at any time.
Additionally, by using the Summize Microsoft Word Add-In, their lawyers can carry on working in a program that they’re already comfortable with, while gaining the Summize features for both pre- and post-signature contracts. This not only helps their lawyers improve their productivity, but also dramatically speeds up the review process.
One of the significant advantages of the partnership, is that through saving Johnson Hana time and money across contract management and reviews, the legal team can provide an even faster and more cost-effective service. By using Summize’s shareable links and read-only users, Johnson Hana can even supply their clients with a self-help platform, generating further engagement and communication between the legal service provider and its clients.
Johnson Hana’s Feedback
“We weren’t just looking for another contract platform. We were looking for a partner who reflected our vision and values. A solution provider that didn’t just try and completely change how we work to fit in.
Johnson Hana offers a suite of legal technologies and we wanted to make sure that this solution complemented our contract management processes and solutions. We were looking for a solution that helped with our productivity but was also cost-effective and easy to implement. Adding value to our clients is always the most important factor for us when deciding what technology to implement in an engagement.
Summize fit the bill completely. It gives us the ultimate flexibility to adjust the service to suit our clients’ needs. We can incorporate it into so many programs that we already use day-to-day. Plus, with it, we can provide even better and faster service for our clients, not to mention get them more engaged with their contracts. It provides such a competitive advantage in a marketplace that can feel overcrowded, and really shows that we’re one of the leading alternative legal service providers.”
