“SmartRecharge automates the entire process of managing computer-assisted legal research (CALR). Library Directors can deliver automated notification emails to users when certain conditions are met, such as clients who do not pay for CALR, suggesting free or low cost research alternatives. Users benefit from being sensitized to the actual cost of CALR. Billing partners can proactively view a summary of the research charges for their matters without contacting the Library or Accounting departments. SmartRecharge is an indispensable efficiency tool that will deliver an immediate ROI to any organization.”
