Australian legal tech startup MODRON, which provides integrated dispute resolution technology and services to courts and tribunals, chose Vonage to power its online video consultations and mediation services.

Embedded within MODRON’s platform, Spaces, the Vonage Video API powers its video calling service, offering an easier, faster and safer way to resolve and manage disputes online including mediations and arbitrations.

With about one million monthly users, MODRON provides its services to government and enterprise organisations in various sectors including legal, real estate, finance, telco, medical, insurance and human resources.

The global legal tech AI market was valued at US$3.2billion in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 37% from 2019-2027. The Asia Pacific market is expected to grow at the highest rate, at 38%.

“Demand for legal tech services is increasing rapidly in Australia as COVID-19 has drastically changed the way we work, particularly as lockdown restrictions have prevented in-person consultations,” said Nathan Polito, CEO and founder of MODRON. “Technology is now a critical and effective tool in meeting the demand for legal support.”

Through Spaces, MODRON offers virtual rooms where groups can discuss topics and share information, and face-to-face video conferences are an essential feature of the platform. 

Polito said the partnership with Vonage ensures that users receive high quality, secure video calls. “The Vonage Video API was easily integrated within our applications and the unique video call functionality Spaces provides.”

Sunny Rao, Vonage SVP and general manager for the Asia-Pacific region, said that with the surge in demand for online legal services, high-quality video calls that ensure uninterrupted and secure conversations have become critical.

“The Vonage Video API facilitates secure and stable video communications, ensuring MODRON users can benefit from Spaces’ unique video call features and have productive consultations,” said Rao.
