In-house counsel must review each line of an invoice to check for conformance to existing billing guidelines. This can be extremely time-consuming, but without proper review, you risk billing variances and erroneous payments. QuisLex offers the resources and staff expertise to set up an effective invoice review program. Our end-to-end workflow design and implementation process builds efficiencies at each step.
First, we review your existing billing guidelines and make adjustments as needed. Next, we implement an e-billing platform that collects and aggregates data to generate useful analytics. Having one central platform also ensures consistency across each vendor relationship. We mandate strict adherence to Uniform Task-Based Management System (UTBMS) codes to ensure data is clean and consistent. QuisLex will review each legal invoice for compliance with both established billing guidelines and UTBMS codes.
Once we can analyze a statistically significant sample of invoice data, we will run analytics to gain insights into measurements such as:
- Total legal spend volume
- Adherence to project plans
- Budget and billing variances
- Expense ratios
Our staff will advise you on the most useful metrics to track for your business, developing a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) that we can track over time. Once we have a sufficient volume of data and a clear baseline for comparison, we can use current and historical information to develop predictive models for the future.
Predictive modeling applies statistical analysis and artificial intelligence to historical data. This analysis identifies trends and patterns to drive improved decision-making in the future. With predictive analytics, our clients are better able to anticipate future spending, adjust their billing policies, and allocate resources.
By partnering with QuisLex, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how you’re using outside counsel. Using predictive modeling offers several advantages for your legal department, including:
- Predicting future trends
- More accurate budgeting
- Allocating staff resources appropriately
Analytics tools reduce the time, effort, and cost of estimating outcomes, freeing up your staff from the challenge of manual data analysis so they can focus on other priorities.
In addition to a team of experienced attorneys, QuisLex has permanent support staff to help with project management and technology implementation. The QuisLex team includes statisticians, technologists, and programmers who can build customized applications to automate routine, time-consuming review tasks. Our areas of expertise include:
- Workflow design
- Conceptual searches and statistical sampling
- Contract abstractions
- Metadata analysis
- Managing permissions and access
- Building CLM systems
- Predictive coding
