Learn how a small paralegal company with a commitment to technology solutions and up-to-date workflow, leveraged Athennian’s features to suit their unique needs.
Performance Paralegals Ltd. (PPL) of Edmonton, Alberta, having committed as a company to be early adopters of legal technology, knew they wanted a cloud-based platform that would put their services at the forefront of the market. As a small team, automation was integral to efficient day-to-day operations. In addition, with their high volume of short-term clients, they needed a way to save on the costs associated with printing and copying. They found that manual operation was time-consuming, repetitive, and arduous.
Athennian worked with Roberta L. Metivier, managing corporate and tax paralegal and co-owner of Performance Paralegals Ltd., to acquaint her with the Athennian platform. Next, she was introduced to her Customer Success Manager, who assisted in product training (i.e., interface, data entry, etc.).
Because of Performance Paralegal’s unique needs, Athennian created multiple registers and ledgers to suit the various clients who require PPL’s service. Roberta was also given access to a support team for questions that arise while using Athennian.
“Athennian checked the boxes, and the other [entity management systems] fell off [to] the wayside immediately.” - Roberta L. Metivier, Corporate/Tax Paralegal, Manager, and Co-owner, Performance Paralegals.
After using Athennian, Performance Paralegals finds ease and efficiency in their workflow. Because Roberta’s company does not act as registered office for their clients, they can classify records as “active” and “inactive,” which keeps their operations organized and scaled. And, if the client returns (which often happens), their transactions and records are stored securely and digitally without needing to repeat any data entry.
Performance Paralegals now offers virtual minute books to their clients, which has not only reduced cost and time but added to their “technology-forward” commitment by being one of the first teams in their area to digitize.
Roberta also reports that her experience with Athennian’s support center and self-training videos are straightforward and easy to navigate when she wants to explore new features on the platform, such as amalgamations.
“All of the tutorials and instructions are straightforward. I’ve been using Athennian for two to three months now [and] I’ve got 19-20 entities [which are] complex because that’s what we do.” -Roberta L. Metivier, Corporate/Tax Paralegal, Manager, and Co-owner, Performance Paralegals.
- Commit to a cloud-based solution that offers scalable pricing to meet their needs as consultants with active and inactive entities.
- Find ease, accuracy, and timeliness by switching to virtual minute books.
- Ensure that their software solution offered a wide range of documents and ledgers (particularly Stated and Paid-Up Capital).
- Expedite their overall workflow by switching to software that offered new features and had the flexibility to grow and change to the user’s needs.
Roberta chose Athennian because, as a small team with returning non-permanent clients, she needed a cloud-based solution with pricing that accounted for active and inactive entities. It stood out among others because of its commitment to updates and features, where other programs just supported their existing services. Finally, Performance Paralegals Ltd. also found Athennian’s sales and discovery team to be informative, transparent, and accommodating.
“The sales rep was very informative, was able to answer all my questions, [and] was very responsive about pricing.” -Roberta L. Metivier, Corporate/Tax Paralegal, Manager, and Co-owner, Performance Paralegals.
