Eric Korb, managing partner and COO of Lawyer Links, LLC (LLNX), was a featured speaker and Technology Trends panelist at the annual Western Regional Society of Corporate Secretaries & Governance Professionals (SCSGP) Conference held recently in Huntington Beach, CA.
Mr. Korb stressed the value and importance of implementing "simple to use" technology to improve performance in today's knowledge-based industries with complex tasks and discussed trends in technology that are important to corporate secretaries and their legal counsel. For many years and even still at present, a good percentage of corporate counsel continue to use traditional research methods to obtain information regarding compliance, filings, finance, and regulations and rules for public companies.
During the panel discussion, Mr. Korb explained how LLNX has taken an innovative and radical approach to legal research by creating hand-indexing topics that hyperlink to relevant source materials. "This method takes real-life experiences and engages people to show them how new solutions save time and improve subject matter comprehension by visually capturing, organizing and communicating information," he said. "This type of technology changes the way in which complex jobs are performed in public company administration and compliance and why the case for adopting technology is critical."
