A quartet of former DST Systems executives who went on to launch EDZ Systems are hoping to streamline law offices’ operations with the help of their new software.
The Overland Park-based startup recently released Intelligent RMS, a software platform designed to centralize law firms’ and corporate legal departments’ data, affording clients more strategic information, said EDZ Systems CEO Elizabeth DeZeeuw.
“Unlike any other product on the market today, Intelligent RMS helps legal teams see the big picture so they can make better decisions faster,” DeZeeuw said. “This can lead to smarter business development, resource utilization and client management, as well as revenue growth and cost elimination. It provides law firms the actionable optics to deliver better service for their clients and stronger profit for their partners.”
Most law offices have troves of databases that are disconnected from one another, DeZeeuw said. EDZ Systems’ new software-as-a-service tool helps to integrate attorney’s case management, timekeeping, finance, human resources marketing and offline documents, providing a more holistic view of the organization, allowing clients to make better decisions, she added.
Intelligent RMS works across various software vendors, platforms and technologies, offering a simple-to-use dashboard view, DeZeeuw said.
EDZ Systems was co-founded by DeZeeuw, CFO Daryl Hubbard, vice president of sales Julie Schlatter and Jon Sitter.
The group has more than 80 years of combined experience at various tech firms, including executive experience at DST Systems, which is Kansas City’s fifth largest employer, according to the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City. In January, DST sold to SS&C Technologies Holdings for $5.4 billion.
