Contract Express Automation Services
We've done this before...
What we do
echo.legal is a consulting services business that helps organisations successfully implement and scale use of the Contract Express automation solution.
Building your own automation team can be time consuming and expensive with headcount hard to justify and experienced specialists in short supply.
We solve that problem with a proven, flexible and cost effective alternative to hiring your own staff. We can help you de-risk and speed up projects driving a better return on investment.
We are owned and managed by members of the original Contract Express team. With a combined 50+ years experience since 2001 we have worked on many of the world's largest deployments of Contract Express at major law firms and corporates.
How we do it
We can help at every stage of your Contract Express project as outsourced providers of specialist expertise. We expand and raise your team's skill set as and when you need us.
echo.legal helps lower project risk through Managed or Fixed Fee services, giving you project cost certainty.
We are quick, agile and use world class technology to guarantee the highest standards of information security and confidentiality.
