ZERO is known in the legal industry through partnerships with AMLAW500 companies that automate their internal administrative processes such as invoicing, email, and document management. CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ZERO, a pioneer in productivity automation solutions for professional services firms, today announced the launch of Apollo, a new software solution that automatically captures the time lawyers spend on billable work on any desktop device and seamlessly integrates it with their existing billing platform. Apollo is a low-interaction, high-impact solution that can be seamlessly deployed within a law firm`s existing IT infrastructure. Pandemic-related remote work transitions have changed not only the location, but also the way lawyers manage their day-to-day operations. For example, there is less reliance on secretaries and support staff and more emphasis on automation. ZERO uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to augment and automate high-value processes that require mimicking the human decision-making process to make knowledge workers more efficient and productive.
These include features that typically take an excessive amount of time, such as time tracking, document and email management, data extraction and transformation, and many more. ZERO`s next-generation AI solutions are built on top of existing systems and provide an additional layer of automation that runs in the background and uses autonomous virtual modules to mimic human decision-making in high-value, repetitive processes such as information prioritization and data classification. This automated layer resides on top of billing systems, messaging systems, and document management systems that enable organizations to increase productivity and accuracy at the user and enterprise levels, resulting in more billable hours and business benefits. The new desktop solution uses the same AI engine as Zero`s mobile time tracking solution, although it now tracks lawyers` work across a large number of programs and activities.
