Broader budget controls and AI-powered forecasts lead latest product innovations
Brightflag, the AI-powered legal spend management platform, today launched a new financial budgeting and forecasting module that applies advanced machine learning to improve the way legal departments track, predict, and control outside counsel spend. These enhancements come as corporate legal and finance leaders face extraordinary pressure to reduce expenses.
Setting effective budgets is the first line of defense against unnecessary costs. In addition to existing matter- and phase-level budgeting features, Brightflag customers can now employ a top-down approach that sets budgets by fiscal year, business department, matter group, legal vendor, and more.

Brightflag’s latest product update also aims to improve the accuracy of legal spend forecasts. As the machine learning engine at the heart of Brightflag’s platform analyzes the individual and collective spending patterns of customers, it provides increasingly accurate predictions of the expenses likely to be incurred under each budget. As a result, this sophisticated technology provides the kind of financial predictability that has eluded in-house legal teams for decades.
