Automated bill review lets case managers set guidelines for rates and allowable charges by outside counsel. Outside law firms can then review their invoices before they submit them over the Internet and get immediate feedback on errors or areas that need clarification, minimizing the number of invoices that must be reviewed by hand and reducing associated expenses. “CSC has extensive experience helping organizations manage their work with outside counsel, and we appreciate the confidence these insurers have placed in us,” said Ed Charlton, vice president of CSC’s Claims, Legal and Self-Insured Solutions. “With the rapid rise of tort-related expenses, insurers are seeing real results from the process improvements and cost review capabilities our legal management software offers.” About CSC Founded in 1959, Computer Sciences Corporation is a leading global information technology (IT) services company.
