How much time in your week do you spend back and forth emailing documents to clients? If you are like most lawyers, it is more time than you would like to be spending on such tasks. Along with wasted time, email is not secure – it exposes you to risks such as hacking.
Investing in an online document management system is one such solution.
The Service Portal has integrated with Law Connect, a secure cloud-based document management system for law firms and their clients, to do just that.
Through the “Read Your Documents” tab on the Service Portal, you can securely share highly confidential documents and private information with clients, colleagues, and other parties as needed.
Law Connect securely stores data on servers provided by industry leader, Amazon Web Services, and is safer than email. Law Connect documents are never sent using email; they are stored in the right matter, accessed only by people with permission.
With Law Connect, your documents are accessible anywhere. You can sign in to LawConnect via the Service Portal to view, collaborate and share your documents from anywhere, at anytime, whether you’re on a computer or mobile device.
Additionally, clients can log in and view all documents relevant to them at once or on a matter by matter basis. Law Connect allows for greater collaboration with a Comment and Reply feature, allowing clients to ask questions, make requests and sign documents. Clients can also upload their own documents, i.e., copy of Passport or Drivers Licence.
Using LawConnect instead of email also means more control over the documents you share. You give permission to who you want to access a document, you can see when a client has viewed a document and you can revoke access whenever necessary.
As Law Connect works as a cloud-based product, documents are always up-to-date in real-time which allows you to complete work faster by ending the back-and-forth of editing via email.
The Service Portal directs clients quickly to login into Law Connect via one click of the “Read Your Documents” tab.
