Legislative and Regulatory Solutions

Trusted by governments around the world

LegisPro technology has been deployed for governments around the world, from California to Washington D.C., Canada to Hong Kong, helping lawmaking bodies modernize centuries-old processes and decades-old systems to match the challenges of a digital age.

Built For The Way You Work

Delivering efficiency, accuracy, and transparency

Designed for legislative counsel, law revisors, legal editors, clerks, and city attorneys, LegisPro is built to handle the complexities and interconnectedness of laws, regulations, and other sets of rules. A modern, browser-based, cloud-ready legislative editing platform, LegisPro drives more efficient, more accurate and more transparent drafting of laws and regulations around the world.

LegisPro offers customizable legislation templates and tools to draft amendments in context and automatically generate complex amending documents – all while collaborating with colleagues on the same document at the same time.

Behind the scenes, LegisPro is built on standard web technologies, with simple plugin options that give legislative IT teams more control over configuration and customization. We know legislative processes are never static – that’s why Xcential provides extensive developer training and support so your team can keep the application in line with changing user needs.

The LegisPro legislative drafting and amending platform has been built to support Akoma Ntoso, the XML standardized data model for the world’s legislative documents, as well as the related U.S. federal standard, USLM (United States Legislative Markup). This means vastly improved legislative search and reporting, plus the assurance your legislative documents are maintained in an open, nonproprietary data format.

LegisPro manages legislative and regulatory documents as data. This creates vastly greater precision in drafting and amending and extraordinary opportunities for smart automation. That’s well beyond the capabilities of word processors, which struggle with the multi-layered complexities and requirement of lawmaking.
