Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, introduced Workspace Assistant, a tool that allows lawyers to perform time management functions using the Amazon Echo or other Alexa-enabled device. Workspace Assistant works only with Workspace, an enterprise-level product for large law firms that integrates information from the financial and matter management platform 3E and other Elite and third-party products.
Workspace Assistant allows lawyers to enter and track billable hours using voice-only inputs. Functions include the input of billable hours to a specific client matter, the use of a timer to calculate and post time spent on a given client matter, and the ability to ask Alexa various questions that relate to billable hours. Here is the press RELEASE.
