Reflecting on the 2014 ILTA Annual Conference

Last month our entire ContactEase team had the opportunity to attend the 2014 ILTA Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee themed Imagine. The four-day conference had over 200 peer-developed educational sessions, numerous networking opportunities, and provided our team with the insights and inspirations to better partner with our clients and prospects.

Having our entire team at the conference also allowed us to come together afterwards and discuss the sessions we attended. These sessions varied from creating marketing and business development ROI to implementation and deployment best practices. With so many sessions and an overwhelming amount of content, we have decided launch a new blog series “ILTA Reflections.” Once a week until the end of October we will be reflecting on one of the sessions a team member has attended. Next week the series will kick off with the blog post “ILTA Reflections: Using Big Data To Measure Marketing and Business Development ROI.”

If you also attended the conference and are interested in sharing your take on a session we would love to share it here. Just send an email to with your session recap and we will post it here with you as our guest author!

10th Annual Law Firm Chief Information & Technology Officers Forum

If you are in New York this week for ALM’s 2014 Legal Technology Trade Show, we encourage you to stop by the 10th Annual Law Firm Chief Information & Technology Officers Forum. Sam Shipley, Chief Information Officer for ContactEase will be on the panel “Why Does it Cost $800,000 to Edit a Document” this afternoon at 2:35PM EST, we hope you can join him!

The session will explore the challenges of keeping corporate counsel and law firm partners happy. Law firms are being tested on how efficiently and effectively they use of technology. The panel will discuss how law firms are addressing those issues as they relate to technologies such as but not limited to document production, contact management and attorney time keeping. Also, this panel will give examples of success stories of how the right technology and training have been used to compete effectively for new business; create efficiencies, and increase profitability.

We hope to see you at the session or you can stop by and visit us in the America’s Hall II of the Hilton New York Hotel. If you are not able to make it or not at the event, stop back to the blog tomorrow as we will recap the session for you.
