Big News: Steere Executive Inquiry System is now part of BigHand!

Executive Inquiry System (EIS)


The Executive Inquiry System© (EIS) is customized and designed to provide key statistics crucial to the operation of each firm. It is primarily designed for use by Firm Management, Practice Group Leaders, Office Heads, Managing Partners, and all Attorneys. Many firms choose to provide EIS to the entire firm to provide an excellent tool for managing clients, timekeeper workloads, and firm statistics at all levels. In addition, it is an excellent substitute for paper reports.

All inquiries are customizable along with any firm-specific attorney roles. Having installed EIS in over 90+ firms, we most likely have seen your request before. Our expertise will assist the firm in deciding the key statistics that will make EIS more powerful and pertinent to your firm.

EIS can be installed in just a few hours, and customized to reflect your firm’s key statistics with minimal investment of firm resources. It is designed to be intuitive, and users can be trained in less than 15 minutes.
