The agreement will see PwC Australia NewLaw offer customers document and workflow automation capabilities delivered by the Checkbox no-code platform. These solutions will be developed in PwC’s end-to-end legal consulting and digital services for legal operations and other business requirements.
“Workflow automation is a critical element for in-house legal departments’ legaltech journeys, resolving headaches in managing contracts, triaging inquiries from multiple stakeholders, fulfilling reporting requirements, and efficiently communicating with the business,” says PwC NewLaw partner Mick Sheehy.
“When it comes to technology providers, we cast a wide net for emerging players, but are extremely selective when picking strategic partners. Checkbox complements our broader services and consulting portfolio in Australia and across the global NewLaw network,” Sheehy adds.
While Checkbox’s no-code architecture allows customers to build applications and processes themselves without the need for technical skills, PwC has invested in training its teams, through its Skilled Services Hub in Adelaide to support organisations that opt to have PwC design, develop, and deliver automated workflows using Checkbox.
“The biggest challenges that organisations face during digital transformation is not just how to use new technologies, but everything that comes before and after digital tools are deployed,” Checkbox CEO Evan Wong concludes.
“PwC NewLaw has expansive capabilities from ideation workshops, process design and change management, through to the ongoing expansion and maintenance of those services, plus governance and best practice models that make this an extremely robust partnership.”
