Constantly referring to the physical file can be time consuming and costly. Legal Evolve securely stores all your documents, so you can be sure they are available for easy retrieval the instant they are needed.

legal-evolve-ico-3Brief Editor/Databook
The days of manually compiling a brief from multiple documents, paginating and preparing a table of contents are over. Legal Evolve automates this laborious task in seconds, with drag-and-drop simplicity.

Legal Evolve works directly with Microsoft Outlook, automatically routing emails to cases based on agreed criteria. Also, emails can be “dragged and dropped” to the case for extra efficiency and ease-of-use.

legal-evolve-ico-5Workflow Automation
Nobody knows your business like you do! Our innovative Workflow feature automate the process within your own unique work environment; ensuring each activity in the life of a case is completed, audited and tracked.

legal-evolve-ico-6Call Logs
Integrated phone call tracking system; as a call is made or received, it can be linked to the appropriate client or matter, creating a detailed log of all calls.

legal-evolve-ico-7Search Facility
Quickly locate the document/file/client details you need. Find any piece of documentation (including scanned images), based on content, name, date, size or any other criteria you like.

One office, one calendar. All staff can manage all tasks and appointments with ease. As each one is related to a particular client’s file/matter, you are provided with an instant overview and report of file activity.

Do you know how many clients need to come in to update their wills? Do you know offhand exactly how many RTAs you closed last year? Being able to create a report on ANY information that is in the system, means you can keep a full health-check of your business.

legal-evolve-ico-10Easy Scanning
A comprehensive scanning solution, allows all hardcopy documentation to be easily incorporated into the system. The use of barcodes, allows for automatic routing of these scanned documents onto their cases.

legal-evolve-ico-11Contacts and Clients
A database of contacts is stored in one central location, which can easily be attached to each new client/matter, reducing the need for duplicate data entry.

legal-evolve-ico-12Tracking Changes
Changes to all documents, templates and workflows are automatically tracked; compare versions of documents, and revert to any previous version, as you need to.

legal-evolve-ico-13Precedent Documents
Rather than staff manually updating content and re-using documents from other case files, drafts can be auto-generated from relevant case information into any number of your own pre-approved templates.

legal-evolve-ico-14Audit Support
An automatic log of all activity is maintained. Whenever a document is created, modified, opened, checked-out, checked-in, renamed or deleted, a record is made of the user and time.

legal-evolve-ico-15Time Recording
