Aderant Spotlight Analytics

Enhance overall firm performance with comprehensive business intelligence software

The practice of law is undergoing dynamic changes. With expanding global markets, rising expenses and more demanding, cost-sensitive clients, law firms are facing an increasingly competitive business environment. These
new challenges are putting tremendous pressure on firms’ bottom lines like never before. Business intelligence (BI) tools can provide firms the ability to access, analyze and act on valuable performance information, giving them a significant competitive advantage and improving overall profitability. However, too often, BI tools are not designed with the correct audience in mind, are too rigid or are only partial solutions. Aderant Spotlight Analytics with Impact Technology is a comprehensive BI application providing decision makers with access to key actionable intelligence, enabling far greater adoption, deeper analysis and, most importantly, immediate corrective action. Firm leaders and business analysts can be more efficient at evaluating firm strategy and tactics, improving the firm’s overall financial well-being. 

Actionable data and robust reporting for improved operations

Spotlight delivers easily consumable, relevant and actionable intelligence to professionals in a personalizable format. From data warehouses, ETLs (Extract, Transform and Load) and OLAP cubes to time and billing, profitability and GL information, Spotlight illuminates the metrics key to your firm’s success.

With Spotlight, timekeepers, finance team members and other staff can better perform their day-to-day jobs and answer specific questions and inquiries faster than ever before. Spotlight’s customizable views of operational, financial and other essential practice management information is presented in an interactive, bite-sized format. The user experience has been developed with professionals in mind, allowing them to get in, get what they need and get out, which saves valuable time. By utilizing the various lenses in which legal professionals view themselves (working, billing, responsible) and easily toggling between them, Spotlight allows for a full view of an individual or groups business.

Spotlight additionally allows partners, practice group leaders and other senior law firm staff to benchmark themselves on targets, budgets or previous performance, as well as provide suggested areas of improvement using Impact Technology. Combining robust business intelligence capabilities with a full-featured business planning and profitability analysis tool, Spotlight can track more than 200 pre- defined performance and management metrics across the firm, partners, practice groups, timekeepers and more. A configurable hierarchy structure allows users to intuitively navigate data and easily view or analyze information across multiple dimensions. Used in conjunction with IBM Cognos, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Report Builder or any OLAP viewer, Spotlight provides a firm’s financial analysts and power users with insightful data analysis, ad hoc reporting and inquiry capabilities.
