FB Rice, a top tier leading Australian Intellectual Property law firm, implemented ActiveDocs for the generation of correspondence across their business, replacing a legacy solution that was built on Microsoft Word macros.

FB Rice attorneys and their assistants can now produce correspondence, emails and letters, through intuitive questionnaires launched directly from Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Word.

Samuel Ricketts, ActiveDocs Sales Director for Growth Markets, said: "FB Rice were looking for a highly sophisticated document generation system that could keep up with their requirements for a seamless integration with Inprotech, have the ability to create templates from reusable building blocks, and give their users a powerful, yet simple to use questionnaire that can be launched from the apps they are already familiar with. Prior to the purchase, FB Rice completed a proof of concept project. The ActiveDocs team worked with them to automate some of their most complex templates. The successful completion of the project proved that ActiveDocs can integrate seamlessly with Inprotech and that the chosen building block approach based on ActiveDocs Snippets works well. Getting first-hand experience with the software, FB Rice could trust that the new document automation system would meet all their requirements."

The correspondence automated by FB Rice includes client letters, reminders, communications with other parties and patent offices, and a number of other document types that are needed for the successful management and protection of intellectual property.

The use of ActiveDocs Snippets helped FB Rice improve content reuse and speed up the creation of new templates. New templates can be built simply through collating Snippets and adding any template-specific content. Snippets themselves have connections to Inprotech with rules built-in to ensure that the correct data and wording appears based on the context of the correspondence.

With this investment into efficiency of their business, FB Rice have set themselves up to cater for a growing client base with the same number of staff and further improved their industry-recognised high quality of service.
