Now more than ever, law firms are looking for ways to become more efficient.

While most firms have multiple practice management concerns, the production of documents remains a very important (and time-consuming) function for all practice groups. The BEC CoreRelate platform is unique because it provides a Client/Matter structure to improve document automation…and an “electronic Redweld” which opens up new possibilities for your practice groups.

This webinar will focus on how easy it is to re-invent a new document production environment for your firm, and demonstrate how other key practice management functions can be improved at the same time.

In this 45-minute overview, we will show you:

  • The advantages of a matter-centric SQL platform tied to Word, Outlook, and your existing Billing and Document Management systems
  • New template automation and workflow
  • Simple, effective content libraries
  • Improving the usability of Word content controls for matter data in documents
  • Question & Answer scripts which are simple to create
  • Court-specific "shell documents" which save time by eliminating duplicate work.

CoreRelate is the framework for BEC LegalBar®, BEC MatterLink®, and BEC Assemble-It®, providing the building blocks you need for efficient document automation and improved matter management.

To get moving on your goal to improve practice group efficiency, join us on May 5!

Give your document production a shot in the arm with LegalBar’s new automation features and its new integrations with BEC MatterLink and BEC Assemble-It.

LegalBar Templates (and LUCI!) have been an integral part of your document automation strategy. This webinar will focus on new technologies and ideas that have helped us improve this process. The newest release of LegalBar provides advanced functionality to further automate and simplify your document production environment.

We will demonstrate:

  • How to leverage your centralized matter data and eliminate the need for Case Information Sheets.
  • New letter automation for matter-specific custom subject lines and CC/BCC recipients.
  • The power and simplicity of Assemble-It clause libraries.
  • Why clause libraries help you manage updates to your firm’s content
  • How templates can be linked to clause libraries and Q&A scripts for quick document assembly.
  • A new method for creating pleadings! (It uses Word content controls and populates them with details from the linked matter.)
  • A hassle-free way to produce a Certificate of Service, time after time.
  • Why a matter shell template saves time by re-using client data safely (without the hazards of copy/paste.)

Please join us on May 12 to see for yourself how LegalBar, Assemble-It, and MatterLink will work together to maximize efficiency in your firm’s document production.
