A document management system is a system used to track, manage and store documents and reduce paper. Docusoft is capable of keeping a record of the various versions created and modified by different users. While many other document management software only offer a client-server based system or cloud-based system; Docusoft lets you choose the best option you like be storing documents on your own self-managed server or our cloud solution that allows you to save documents on our cloud server and access them anywhere through various devices such as Desktops, laptops, mobiles or tablets.
Docusoft stores documents in their native file format (Microsoft Word or Excel, PDF) which helps to keep the formatting of the original document intact.
Solicitors’ offices used to be well known for the rows of books on the shelves and the voluminous file cabinets which housed client documents. Since the advent of the digital age, however, many firms have moved much of their paper online in the form of digital documents. While some documents will always be required to be kept in physical form, many lawyers today are finding they not only can have a paper-light office but that software provides much greater access than traditional physical files.
Traditionally when we speak of documents in a law practice we’re referring to pleadings, discovery documents, forms, and letters. Today, add email to that list. Email is not only the most common form of communication between parties in a legal matter but each email can be thought of as a document. So it should go without saying that managing documents and email is important to lawyers in every type of practice.
Docusoft takes this further by providing you the ability to automatically save emails in the system making the process furthermore seamless.
Implementing a legal document management system such as Docusoft can increase efficiency by cutting down the time required in retrieving a document and enhancing security through control over what each user can see and retrieve making it integral to a modern law firm.
