In a recent Athennian poll, 94% of legal professionals still use manual processes when managing their entities. Some are entirely manual (using spreadsheets and paper minute books), while others uphold a hybrid system comprised of software and spreadsheets.
One paralegal who recently upgraded from spreadsheets to our cloud-based system said, “I find that after only a little more than a year of working with Athennian, I’m releasing my grip on my spreadsheets! If you knew me, you’d be impressed – and proud to know that Athennian has earned my trust!”
I find that after only a little more than a year of working with Athennian, I’m releasing my grip on my spreadsheets! If you knew me, you’d be impressed – and proud to know that Athennian has earned my trust! Your support is the last of a dying breed of customer service. I’d say 50% of my satisfaction with Athennian is customer service satisfaction because you all KNOW what you are talking about and are seemingly there 24/7 to help!
