20 April 2021
Deloitte Romania and Reff & Associates | Deloitte Legal concluded a partnership with Legito, the leading legal-tech company based in Czech Republic, to offer document lifecycle automation solutions, including contracts, for legal, HR, procurement and financial departments. Legito’s web based platform allows companies to draft, manage, sign, store and analyze documents using cutting edge technologies, therefore providing both document automation and management.
“The transformation of the legal departments started before the pandemic outbreak, but it gained momentum once the companies’ need for reimagining organizational flows turned into a matter of resilience. In this respect, a more orchestrated approach of processes becomes a catalyst for effective business. In order to better meet these kind of needs, we are expanding the technology ecosystem created by Deloitte and Reff & Associates with the help of a new partner which uses unique automation features, and we are reinforcing our commitment towards putting together experts from different areas to provide complete digital transformation solutions and help companies achieve operational excellency,” said Simina Mut, Partner at Reff & Associates | Deloitte Legal and leader of Deloitte Legal’s Management Consulting practice in Central Europe and the Deloitte Legal’s Global Centre of Excellence.
“Over the last years, our local technology team within the Consulting practice expanded its competences in robotic process automation (RPA), data analytics and in systems architecture. We went beyond and laid the groundwork for a local tech ecosystem which harvests the newest technology solutions, such as specialized chatbots and solutions for process automation. We are now entering a new stage in the development of this ecosystem by enlarging it to a regional dimension with the help of our new partner, offering companies access to technical knowledge that transcends the geographic boundaries in an era of unprecedented connection and transformation,” said Andrei Ionescu, Partner-in-charge, Management Consulting and Risk Advisory, Deloitte Romania.
Through this partnership, the experts from Reff & Associates | Deloitte Legal and the technology team within the Consulting practice of Deloitte Romania will implement Legito’s technology solution, help companies define contracting processes and approval flows, automate contract templates and integrate the platform with electronic signature solutions.
