NetDocuments, the leading cloud content management platform for legal professionals, today introduced several new technologies aimed at enriching the experiences of legal professionals. ILTACON 2021 provides the ideal setting for NetDocuments to showcase its philosophy of “Attorney-Inspired Innovation.” Among the new capabilities unveiled today are greater flexibility while working remote, increased productivity and insights, and deeper integrations with Microsoft technologies.
These enhancements are all available as part of NetDocuments’ Work Inspired Solutions, a comprehensive portfolio of legal technologies launched at ILTACON 2020. Work Inspired Solutions have been adopted by more than 1,125 existing NetDocuments law firm and corporate legal customers during the pandemic.
NetDocuments will be introducing and demonstrating the following technologies and enhancements during ILTACON 2021:
- ndKeyboard: Boosting mobility. Enables quick and secure document sharing on mobile devices by creating an intuitive way to insert a link or attachment without ever changing applications – just a single tap to switch mobile keyboards. Included in ORGANIZE, ndKeyboard works with any application including Outlook and MS Teams, as well as on both iOS and Android.
- Workspace Analytics: Increasing productivity visibility. A part of the LEARN solution, Workspace Analytics provides actionable intelligence across a matter or project, so users can see commonly accessed documents, a timeline of document activity, most active lawyers on the matter, and more.
- DocuSign eSignature for NetDocuments: Automating workflow. Users can easily send, receive, and track e-signatures for documents as part of their standard workflow. This native integration with DocuSign eSignature, the world’s #1 way to sign electronically on practically any device, is part of ORGANIZE and is expected to be available in Q4 2021.
- Microsoft integrations: Enhancing cloud-to-cloud connectivity. NetDocuments continues to expand its deep integrations with Microsoft Teams, Power Automate, and Microsoft 365. ChatLink enhancements (included with PLAN) provide simplified document references as well as more powerful synching between NetDocuments and Microsoft. This enables legal professionals to keep their files secure, while still being able to easily edit and collaborate.
- Activity Center/ndOffice synching: Increasing offline and mobile flexibility. Lawyers want to access files remotely, even when they don’t have access to the internet. Working closely with legal professionals, NetDocuments’ design team reimagined the NetDocuments Activity Center to enable this. Now favorite or recently available documents can be accessed even offline, with changes being synched and uploaded as a new version, once users are again connected. Included with ORGANIZE.
- Delegate homepage management: Enhancing legal tech collaboration. By favoriting documents and workspaces, a lawyer can quickly find links to work-product directly on the homepage. Now with delegate homepage management, lawyers can let their support staff organize their homepage for them, preloading it with relevant materials that automatically downloaded to the local system, and available within the Activity Center. Included with ORGANIZE.
“These enhancements are what we mean when we talk about ‘Attorney-Inspired Innovations.’ They are derived from close engagement with legal professionals and improve their productivity and happiness with our products,” said Dan Hauck, NetDocuments’ Chief Product Officer. “Each solution provides unique and enduring value for customers. And we are looking forward to sharing even more at INSPIRE, our user conference this November.”
