Documents are the core of a legal firm, but the process of creating them takes a lot of time, resources and attention to detail from your employees. A recent client survey found that both mid & large size firms can save 4 hours per week simply by eliminating inconsistencies and reducing time spent on documents.
Streamlining your document creation process can help you to drive profits by:
Enabling your employees to self-serve. Many documents are produced within the firm each day and DPU will have their hands full processing each one. Allowing employees to self-serve from a library of built-in templates means that anyone in the firm can quickly and easily create documents that are consistent and compliant without needing to be an expert in Microsoft Word.
Allowing you to turnaround documents more quickly. Formatting documents is time consuming and costly, but by automating this through creating standardized templates and content, means employees spend less time recreating everything manually. Less time spent on admin work means more time spent on client valued projects.
Delivering a better client service. Being able to quickly create customized legal documents can help provide a better experience and improves client satisfaction and retention, as it can feel like more of a tailored service.
