We are very happy to be a sponsor of iManage’s first virtual ConnectLive. Join us from the comfort of your own home. 🙂
ConnectLive Virtual is free to iManage customers, unlimited people from your company. But you must register in advance here.
Our LINK encrypted app includes full access to iManage Work®. With LINK, attorneys and professional staff can easily work with document-centric workflows on smartphones and tablets.
At ConnectLive we will be showing our new custom workflows, including paperless pre-bills. Talk to us to see how you can use features like LINK’s in-app annotation and integration of Work and email to automate tasks.
Here is an example of what can be done in the LINK secure container app: – Receive an email with an attachment. – Compare the attachment to a file in iManage Work. – Annotate the redlined version. – Email the annotated document. – If desired, also check the annotated document into DMS
LINK provides: – In-app annotation – In-app comparison – High fidelity document viewer – Email (Exchange Web Services) – Integration with the Office apps for editing
With in-app email: – Open NRLs. – Use predictive filing to Work or Outlook folders. – Import attachments to Work. – Email files as original format, NRLs, or PDF.
Of course, we love going to Chicago, but we are looking forward this new experience.
Before we all moved to working from home, were your attorneys and paralegals approving pre-bills by marking up paper? And now? Are you scanning reams of paper? Printing and FedEx-ing?
In late 2018 we were contacted by the head of Knowledge Management of an AmLaw 100 law firm. They had a specific goal: to make approval of pre-bills paperless and easy to do on an iPad. They have a practice which has high monthly transactions. Some partners were approving several thousand pre-bills per month on paper. This was difficult enough when a partner was in the office. It was untenable if the partner had to travel. This firm had heard about our LINK app’s built-in annotation and integration with DMS. They wanted to know if we could help.
Marking up pre-bills is easy to do with LINK. Here is a common workflow:
Accounting uploads the pre-bills to a folder in DMS.
Attorney goes to that folder in DMS from the LINK app.
Attorney annotates the pre-bills using LINK’s in-app annotation.
Attorney saves the marked-up pre-bill to DMS from the LINK app.
Accounting retrieves the marked-up pre-bills.
That’s all there is to it. In LINK you can mark-up a pre-bill with a pencil or a finger. Add a stamp or note. You can even capture your signature then place it on documents.
This law firm started approving pre-bills with LINK in 2019. Their partners are very pleased with the improved process. There is no going back to paper for them.
There are variations to the workflow. Instead of DMS the firm may upload the pre-bills to network file shares or OneDrive. Or, the pre-bills may be emailed to the attorney, marked up in LINK, and then emailed back. LINK can be used on a phone instead of a tablet.
You may watch a video showing two workflows, one using DMS and one using email, below.
in legal we are seeing that this pandemic presents an opportunity for certain productivity improvements. Not only in the case of Zoom, but usage of DocuSign has rocketed. “Never let a crisis go to waste.”
We would be happy to discuss your pre-bill workflow and how LINK could apply to it.
If our LINK app can help you to provide business continuity to your attorneys and staff in this unprecedented time, we want to get LINK in your hands.

We’ve been a NetDocuments partner for years. Recently, with Leonard Johnson heading up their partner ecosystem, NetDocuments have formalized their NetDocuments ISV Partner Program. We have used their REST APIs to give NetDocuments users access to their documents and their email in the same encrypted container app, LINK. NetDocuments is committed to the platform approach wherein both Independent Software Vendors and NetDocuments customers can develop solutions for optimizing their workflows using the REST APIs.
It’s easy to review, compare, annotate, file, and email documents all within our LINK app. LINK also offers a managed integration with the Microsoft Office apps for editing on an iPad or smartphone.
We are back from a busier than ever ILTA LegalSEC Summit. People attend LegalSEC to genuinely learn how they can keep their law firms protected. This is no easy feat because cybersecurity is a moving target. While Big Law firms participate, there is great value for small and medium sized firms where there might not be a CISO. The Director of IT or network engineer might be the security department. The two or three days at LegalSEC are packed with information.
This year the well-received keynote by William R. Evanina, Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, was recorded. Another popular session was “Leverage These Free Resources to Up Your Security and Governance Game.” Both of these and several other LegalSEC 2019 sessions can be heard at no cost by ILTA members, here.
Heads up, save the date. Next year’s LegalSEC Summit 2020 will be June 1-3 and the location…San Antonio at the Marriott Riverwalk. If you have visited the Riverwalk you know that this is a fantastic location. Hope to see you there.
