Our in-house legal team are excited for the implementation of Xakia Matters. Xakia Matters is very easy to use, the reporting functionality is more sophisticated than other offerings and it simplifies the management of your own matters as well as your team’s matters. I would highly recommend Xakia Matters as a matter management solution.
- Dayna Field, Chief Legal Officer
Xakia allows us to monitor and keep track of all ongoing matters with ease and efficiency. Team collaboration is enhanced by having matters centrally located and easily accessible from any location. The ability to produce tailored reports in real time has been a great asset to the team and the business, and with each new update and instalment, we get better value from Xakia.

Xakia has had tremendous benefits in helping our legal team prioritise and report – not sure how we worked without it!
- Sean Power
General Counsel, Bluescope Buildings
Matter tracking and organization is particularly beneficial to small law departments, because of its added functionality over the old-school method of using spreadsheets … We can also save time by loading the invoices into our matter-tracking system as opposed to individually tracking legal service invoices.
Even as a new Xakia subscriber, we are already collating data which will help us manage and resource the company’s legal requirements better, as well as identifying opportunities for professional development.
- Johnny Short, General Counsel, Australia
Xakia provides us with real time visibility on the workload and competing priorities of our legal department. We have found it to be a critical tool for resource allocation purposes and optimizing team efficiencies. One of the greatest challenges facing any in-house legal department is how to effectively demonstrate “value” to the broader business through imperical data. Xakia enables us to numerically substantiate how the legal team actively contributes towards the company’s strategic goals and key metrics. We can also identify recurring high volume / low risk work items with a view to refocussing team attention and effort towards those matters which directly support and impact our company’s strategic agenda.
- Aaron Gant, GM Corporate Legal
Xakia provides reporting and data visualization tools that highlights the legal team's contribution to the business. For the user it's so simple and quick to use.
Xakia has provided us a clean, user-friendly and effective way to track the matters our team works on. The integration with Net Documents is seamless – a critical feature for us. We have found the Xakia team to be great listeners, agile developers, and keenly interested in meeting their clients’ needs. Xakia has become a key foundation of our legal technology architecture.
Xakia gives us the ability to visualise where our legal team is investing its time and effort, and enables us to easily and graphically demonstrate our value add to the business. Xakia to us is not just a data collection tool, but is a way for us to define our key metrics, and measure how we’re tracking against those metrics in real time. It’s added a new dimension to our ability to focus on key objectives, and to identify things we can stop doing as well as the areas we need to focus more on.
It’s difficult to get beyond blocking and tackling and get strategic without knowing who’s doing what. With Xakia, if you graph your matters, you can quickly arm your GC with knowledge to get the department more strategic.
After investigating a number of other products in the market, our Legal Team have recently implemented Xakia as our matter management system. The reasons for moving to a new matter management system were to facilitate our team working in a “paperless” fashion (in support of our company moving to an activity based work environment), to better manage our external legal spend, and to provide us with better tools to demonstrate the Legal Team’s value to the company. We have found Xakia to be a very cost effective solution. It is easy and intuitive to use, the visual presentation of various dashboards and reports is excellent, and it integrates seamlessly with our new documents management system (NetDocuments). Importantly, Jodie Baker (Managing Director of Xakia) listens to us as users and is focused on driving the continuing development of Xakia’s functionalities to better suit our company’s needs.
