Libryo is building and taking care of the Libryo Platform. The Libryo Platform is a SaaS ecosystem of software applications, content, professional services, and software integrations. It is built on top of a worldwide API regulatory dataset. No matter what kind of business an employee works for, the Libryo Platform makes it clear what their legal responsibilities are at any given time.
Libryo became an official company in the UK in 2016 and since then, it has been an alternative to traditional legal registry solutions that are based in the cloud and are always changing. The regulatory data is available as Data as a Service (DaaS), which can be accessed through Libryo apps and third-party apps that use it.
With this, Libryo Streams are always up to date with the latest laws, and users can search by topic to find section-specific results across regulations. Keeping a legal registry on paper takes a lot of time and isn’t very effective.
The Libryo Platform can give you a section-by-section, easy-to-understand summary of how a certain issue affects your company in real-time, in any given situation and place.
It is also easy to connect operational risks to legal risks. The Libryo Platform is one of the best ways for global companies to get legal help because it can do this for any kind of law in any place.
How it Works
After you sign up to become a Libryo customer, their Client Success team will start working with your business to collect data.
This process makes sure that the Libryo Platform knows every single thing there is to know about your business. This lets you know which rules apply in any given situation.
They call this kind of information “customer context.” A questionnaire is used to find out the information. Once they have this information, they can set up a separate Libryo Stream for each of your organization’s operations and contexts, complete with a custom legal register.
Libryo Streams, which are computerized legal records, are very helpful when it comes to following the law. Not only do these registers have the rules you need to follow, but they also have the information you need to do so.
There are examples on the web that are easy to use and up to date. So, each Libryo Stream only has the exact parts of the rules that must be followed, as well as only the laws that apply to the situation or activity at hand.
In addition to the full legal text, they also have plain English summaries of each relevant law and a lot of other helpful things.
The regulatory requirements set for a customer are made up of all the local rules that affect the customer’s line of work and legal interests.
Users can subscribe to one or more Libryo Streams, and if there are any changes to the rules, their subscriptions are updated automatically.
If we don’t have enough or know enough about the client context on a certain Libryo Stream, we will err on the side of giving too many updates instead of too few. So, getting too many change notices, some of which are not important, is more dangerous than getting too few. Never miss out on the latest news!
Your business or organization can access its many Libryo Streams using either Libryo’s app or an app made by a third party. Both apps are hosted on the Libryo Platform.
The Libryo Platform could help customers meet their regulatory requirements by making them more productive and saving them time.
When compared to older ways of finding relevant laws, the Libryo Platform makes this process much more accurate even if such research is performed by professionals like lawyers.
This makes it less likely that there will be legal consequences for not following the rules. Customers who use the Libryo Platform save up to $200,000 per year on legal compliance costs.
