ActiveDocs, the confident choice of large companies for document automation success, announced today that Court Services Victoria (CSV, in Melbourne, Australia) is deploying ActiveDocs Opus for template management and document generation in the State of Victoria’s County Court and the Victoria Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT). For both deployments, ActiveDocs Opus is integrated with iManage™ for legal document management and K2™ for workflow.

The deployment at County Court is for documents related to parole hearings. The ActiveDocs Opus Document Wizard allows users to select document types and related content, and leverages the product’s hyperlink feature to provide dynamic links to associated documents. The overall solution handles assembly of an e-File package from the ActiveDocs-generated documents and other related documents including emails and attachments, for storage into iManage. In the future, the County Court implementation will extend to civil cases.

At VCAT the deployment is for creation and management of pre-court documents to go before the tribunal. As with the County Court, users work via the ActiveDocs Opus Document Wizard to select the types of document and related content required, and the overall solution handles the assembly of an e-File package for storage into iManage. In the future, the VCAT implementation will extend to post-court documents for communication of decisions and orders arising from hearings.

Skip Dostine, ActiveDocs SVP Australia and Asia-Pacific Operations, said “Generation, delivery, and management of documents for public legal bodies requires precision and stringent attention to detail. Privacy is paramount and it goes without saying that content must be accurate. The implementation of ActiveDocs Opus for generation of these high value documents, together with the depth and breadth of its integration capabilities, allows Court Services Victoria to provide a compliant end-to-end solution for its client organizations.”
