NetDocuments is what OTB refers to as a traditional matter-centric DMS and EMS (Email Management System). This means that NetDocuments users associate a matter-centric profile to each document and/or email as it is stored in the firm’s cloud-based document and email repository. Each document or email is coded with various attributes like client, matter, document type, author, and/or typist. Once profiled, the NetDocuments users can use these attributes to quickly retrieve the documents by searching, as an example, “all correspondence in the Jones case authored by TLR.” All documents and email are also full-text indexed as they are entered in the repository so that full-text searches can be quickly performed.
Why should you consider NetDocuments as your Document and Email Management Solution?
While remote access to premise-based technology is quite good these days, having a native cloud-based DMS/EMS application makes it as simple and secure as it can be to access your document and email repository any time, from anywhere.
- Current integration – NetDocuments Email Management Service (EMS) allows you to intelligently save, file, and manage emails through a seamless integration with Microsoft Outlook. Emails are dragged or tagged to native Outlook folders, and a copy is then sent to the matter, client, or project-centric repository in NetDocuments, organizing documents, emails, attachments, and other content into a single location. In particular, the ability to drag and drop emails to Outlook folders, and predictive tagging of emails that are then saved to NetDocuments makes it about as easy as it can be to manage the overwhelming amount of email that attorneys receive.
- Future integration – NetDocuments isn’t resting on its EMS laurels. In early 2015 they acquired Decisiv Email and its development team. Decisiv Email is the most powerful email management solution in the market. Its advanced predictive algorithms are far ahead of any other competitor. Combining Decisiv Email with NetDocuments will result in the most modern and intuitive matter-centric content management solution ever made available to the legal market. You can see the Decisiv integration in the NetDocuments Service Overview video, below, beginning at 8:52. While this integration is currently available only to very large firms due to cost and equipment, in the next few years we will see this level of firm-wide, predictive management of email available as part of the NetDocuments service in the cloud.
