iManage ConnectLive 2018

I recently attended the iManage ConnectLive conference (May 3-4, 2018, Brooklyn New York).
What a great conference experience!

MatterLink-iManage Integration Updates

First of all, it was great to see many BEC Legal clients at the conference. It gave us a chance to share a preview of the latest innovative enhancement to our File Site integration. Currently in Beta mode, the new MatterLink Task Pane, which provides a summary of MatterLink data from the corresponding iManage workspace, will be released this summer. The task pane eliminates the need to open MatterLink to see deadlines, tasks, notes, and related parties, displaying them instead in the task pane.

The conference was also a great opportunity to consider deeper integration possibilities for MatterLink and iManage. For many law firms, after the “pillars” of billing and DM are in place, MatterLink provides “the rest of the matter information” for a full case/matter management solution with iManage.

Interest in RAVN

Everyone at the conference was excited about the iManage acquisition and integration with the AI platform, RAVN. At BEC Legal, we share the excitement. RAVN provides intriguing possibilities for us as an integration/development partner. In the document assembly arena, our Assemble-It clause library, with RAVN search engine connection, would have the potential to provide a huge step forward in document automation.

Office 365

The conference generated other great ideas and questions about the future of law firm automation. Like iManage, we are also targeting O365 Teams as a strategic place to integrate and deliver matter information. It certainly was helpful to attend sessions on iManage 0365 integration plans at the conference.

Thank you, iManage, for the opportunity to spend a couple of days discussing and sharing possibilities.
