Why use DLEX?

Compiling a register that accurately reflects your company's operations requires knowledge that only you possess. Third parties lack this 'insider' insight and thus cannot provide a solution that identifies all the applicable legal responsibilities with which you must comply.

The ever-changing legal landscape demands a system like DLEX that provides updates and notifications timeously so that corrective and preventative measures can be implemented. The costly periodic updates provided by other solutions are too infrequent and expose your company to litigation risk.

Staying Informed

How DLEX and a Data Dynamics Legal Library will help you.

Data Dynamics

Notifications & Comparisons

DLEX provides you with a comprehensive system for monitoring your company's legal obligations. As soon as law is amended, DLEX will provide you with clear notifications of the affected law extracts used in your legal register and a side-by-side comparison showing the 'old vs new' legislation.

The benefits are invaluable. Being constantly made aware of law changes and where your legal register and business operations are impacted, will maximize your ability to show compliance, while allowing you to react quickly in areas where action may be required.


Saving Costs

Some of the cost benefits afforded to you by using DLEX.

Data Dynamics

Automatic & Timeous Updates

Law changes happen every day. Legal registers based on such laws will invariably be out-of-date within the quarter that they are printed. Without a system that automatically responds to law updates, there will undoubtedly be large amounts of billable hours incurred to periodically refresh the registers by third parties. By updating the register in-house such costs are virtually eliminated.

The timeous response to legal amendments affords the company the ability to align with developing requirements swiftly, and thus reduce the risk to the employees and the legal costs associated with non-compliance.

Assessing Risk & Compliance

Tools to assess and monitor your company's compliance and risk status.


Compliance & Risk

Assessing is not only critical to determining new obligations that pose a significant risk to your company, but also monitoring compliance with your existing legal and other requirements.

The DLEX Assessment Manager provides you with the facility to visually identify the significant topics within your register utilising custom criteria and formulae.

Frequent self-assessments are vital for establishing, implementing and maintaining measures to ensure the company's continued alignment with its obligations.


Getting Started

Do it yourself or let us give you a helping hand.


Register Wizard

DLEX makes it simple to get started. Start from scratch by creating topics that represent the processes and resources that define your operations and link the relevant legislation and regulations directly from the law library using legal extracts.

Alternatively, you could start by creating a register based off one of your company's templates or ours and fast track the process.


Migration & Training

As part of our on-boarding process we provide the service of migrating your existing registers into DLEX to contextualize the included training so that you can easily complete & maintain your own registers.

Our personalized online training sessions will guide you through the process of creating a register, monitoring it for changes and periodically assessing its contents.
