New Passport® and TyMetrix® 360° Releases Offer Enhanced Analytics and User Experience

May 2, 2019 — Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions announced the launch of Intelligent Invoice Conversion, a new managed service that uses artificial intelligence and human expert review to convert paper and PDF invoices into Legal Electronic Data Exchange Standard (LEDES) files that are submitted electronically through ELM Solutions’ Passport and TyMetrix 360° e-billing solutions.

“As pressure mounts on legal departments to increase efficiency, it is critical that companies have a comprehensive view of e-billing and data analytics to guide spend and matter management decisions,” said Barry Ader, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions. “This latest example of AI-powered service highlights our ability to make a meaningful impact on our customers' business through advanced technology. Intelligent Invoice Conversion enables 100 percent electronic billing, empowering corporate legal and claims departments with better visibility to track and manage their outside counsel. Now, companies can have a complete view of their outside counsel legal spend.”

Leveraging leading-edge technology to respond to the needs of our customers, the releases of Passport® 19.1 and TyMetrix® 360° 2019.1 include three key innovative enhancements in business intelligence and analytics capabilities. 

  • LegalVIEW® dashboards for Passport have been expanded to include operational management and inventory management dashboards, providing both business intelligence and at-a-glance views of key performance metrics and analytics for legal operations.  
  • The Legal Holds modules have been enhanced to give corporate legal and claims departments greater visibility and control of their legal holds by adding support for “per-hold” notifications, enabling proxy acknowledgements and supporting silent or confidential holds. 
  • With Office Companion Smart Assist, TyMetrix® 360° users can now approve, adjust or reject invoices from within their Microsoft Outlook inbox. In this release, Smart Assist has been enhanced to support additional browsers and mobile devices, as well as new single sign-on options.
