Best Bot Idea was awarded to Partner Craig Boyle, whose Right of Entry bot looks to provide employers with a timely tool to ensure they do not breach the Fair Work Act when faced with union disputes. The panel were particularly impressed by the idea of harnessing the efficiencies of automation in such high stakes environments. They look forward to seeing how the bot can be used when time is of utmost importance.
Reflecting on the firm’s collaboration with Josef, Bot Week participants noted how the workshops were “informative and eye opening”. How the “style of teaching [was] very engaging and fun” and how Josef bots are “making it easier to achieve our purpose [through] innovation”.
For many, the applications of the tool were surprising, with one participant observing: “I was not expecting [Josef] to be relevant to my work, but I very quickly found a use case for it!” With bot submissions targeting processes both internal and external in spaces ranging from risk, health & safety, industrial relations and finance, the possibilities of automation at MinterEllison are set to be exponential.
For Head of Legal Operations Charley Orr, automation equates “not simply to a buzzword” – it represents “a journey that the firm continues to embark on”, ensuring projects target efficiencies while keeping the firm’s communities at the centre of its work.
With Josef in their back pocket, the teams at MinterEllison are set up to achieve just that. Let the innovation continue!
