Happy new year! As we reflected on the year past, 2018 really seems to have marked a turning point for legal technology in Singapore. From our beginnings in 2000, where we had to work hard to convince law firms to have a website, today, hardly a day goes by without technology championing by the Courts, the Ministry of Law, the Law Society of Singapore, the Singapore Academy of Law, or some tech savvy lawyer. In 2018, “Legal Technology” became a genre in its own right.
2018 has been a busy year for us, reviewing and deep testing off-the-shelf legal technology solutions, and fine tuning them to meet Singapore compliance requirements and workflows. We also turned our attention to technology being used in more technologically advanced professional services industries, such as banking.
In the pipeline, our collaborations with technology companies and progressive law firms are focused on the co-creation of “lowest common denominator” applications which will benefit the whole legal industry, in the space of AI, blockchain and robotic automation. These are innovations which we hope will find their way to your desktop in 2019.
We are often referred to as the grandmother of legal technology. It has been a longer journey than we had planned for, and one that we are proud to have travelled. It’s been 18 years!
We know none of this would have been possible without your continued engagement, and as we embark upon our 19th year, we would like to thank you for your support, your sharing, and for helping us along; we appreciate each and every one of you for being a part of our journey.
At Bizibody we are grateful that we help lawyers work efficiently, profitably and with enjoyment, because, in the end, your work helps people at large.
Wishing you a beautiful and blessed 2019.
Managing Director, Bizibody Technology Pte Ltd
