Onit, a leading provider of Smart Process Apps, today announced that it presented at the Texas Lawyer In-House Counsel Summits in Houston and Austin on April 10 and 24 respectively.
Onit had the privilege of speaking with one of its clients, ZS Associates, one of the world’s largest specialized business services firms, during the third session of each Summit.
The presentation, “A New Era: Business Apps are Re-Inventing How High Performing Law Departments Operate,” focused on how new tools can help legal departments increase productivity and streamline business processes. Paul Zengilowski, Customer Development Executive, and Stasha Jain, formerly with ZS Associates, were the two presenters.
Paul’s presentation focused on how Onit Smart Process Apps bring a new class of business process software tools to help professionals drive efficiency and productivity, automate manual processes and solve problems that directly impact customer satisfaction, employee productivity and profitability. Stasha’s presentation highlighted how Onit’s Smart Process Apps allowed ZS Associates’ legal department to increase responsiveness to their consultants, reduce administrative overhead for attorneys, which ultimately resulted in a meaningful shift in the law department’s efforts to become a competitive advantage to the organization.
Paul Zengilowski is a seasoned business and legal technology executive with more than 20 years of sales, business development and client implementation experience. As a Customer Development Executive for Onit, he oversees the company’s outside sales, partner and channel strategy, while also contributing to the company’s product direction and strategy.

As in-house counsel, her responsibilities included compliance, a large variety of agreements (technology, HR outsourcing, business process outsourcing (BPO), software licenses, and services agreements), and legal department administration. Previously, she was Senior Legal Counsel at ZS Associates, Inc., a boutique consulting firm, and Corporate Counsel at Hewitt Associates (now known as Aon Hewitt), a human resources consulting and outsourcing firm.

Onit was formed by legal software industry experts Eric M. Elfman and Eric A. Smith, co-founders of Datacert, a leading provider of enterprise spend management software. Launched in early 2011, Onit deploys Onit Apps to simplify business process automation and improve business productivity across all departments and industries. The Onit App Builder allows business users to drive efficiency and productivity by combining business process management, project management and information management into one easy to use tool so the user can create their own Onit Apps without having to rely on IT for support.
Businesses have processes for everything -- whether it’s hiring a vendor or law firm, terminating an employee, submitting a contract for review, requesting a trademark request, obtaining an NDA, etc. Most of these processes are manual, paper intensive and cumbersome. With Onit Apps, processes are automated in a few clicks, responsible parties are notified immediately, and data collection is centralized. Onit doesn’t require any software to download or resources from IT. For more information, visit www.onit.com or contact 1-800-281-1330.
