“We use Tracker for virtually all aspects of our practice: from matter management, to collaboration with outside counsel, invoice processing and reporting — it does it all. But we’re even more impressed with the commitment of the Serengeti team to understand our needs and respond with new features. Serengeti is a great company, with the best system on the market for our needs.”

With only a few in-house lawyers we are able to efficiently audit invoices from all of our firms, manage budgets and documents and track key information online. We can also quickly generate the management report that we need. Small law departments get the same system and service as the largest companies on Serengeti. This is an excellent choice for a department of our size."
