John Price, Global Litigation & Compliance Counsel, CEVA Logistics, USA
Rebecca Schutt, Compliance & Records Manager (Global), CEVA Logistics, USA

When implemented correctly, technology and technological developments can be leveraged to increase legal department efficiency and productivity, and can reduce legal department spend. Our article will describe how CEVA Logistics has worked to leverage technology in a variety of common legal department tasks. We will describe how a global legal department can utilize technology to increase and facilitate meaningful communication and information sharing. We will address how technology can decrease the amount of paperwork and paper processing, and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of document storage. We will illustrate how technology can improve those legal department functions and tasks which require consistency, and which must be able to be tracked and easily referenced. Finally, we will discuss how certain analytical tasks can be streamlined and standardized to increase accuracy, availability and usefulness.
