Lexvoco ‘MyDay’ Wins Place on 2017 Legal Innovation Index


SYDNEY, 31 August 2017 – lexvoco has won a place on the distinguished 2017 Legal Innovation Index announced by LexisNexis® and Janders Dean, in recognition of the creation of MyDay – a data capture, analysis and visualisation web app that allows in-house legal teams to capture, analyse and report on data.


"This year’s entries have shown that companies are becoming more aware of the importance of understanding the client experience as a differentiator. We are also seeing that innovation has become more embedded within organisations’ cultural blueprint and there has been a rise in collaboration between and within organisations - between disciplines that were previously isolated within their own function,” said Justin North, Director of Janders Dean.


“The Innovation Index has provided an unprecedented insight into the role of data in innovation and illustrates how it can be used to bridge the justice gap in our region,” said Simon Wilkins, General Manager of LexisNexis Australia.


“Technology has the potential to provide efficiencies and new platforms to make access to legal aid achievable for everyone, regardless of their economic situation. This year’s entries have seen significant strides in technologies, which will increase the capacity of the legal assistance sector to assist more people and therefore spend more time with the most vulnerable clients with the greatest need,” Mr Wilkins added.


The Legal Innovation Index is now its 5th successful year of recognising organisations and individuals that are pushing the legal sector forward through the creation and implementation of innovative practices and strategies. The Index sets a benchmark that distinguishes true innovators from the crowd, recognising those who continue to embrace change in order to shape the future of the legal sector.


“Australia’s legal industry is on the cusp of an exciting period of change, and these winners are amongst those leading the way,” Mr Wilkins stated.
