Legal & Judiciary Automation

We're familiar with the challenges you face, and we solve them effectively.

Let us help you gain complete control over your content, eliminate human error, and ensure efficiency across all communications.

Independently verified as a top automation provider for the legal industry

A 2020 independent document automation study by the Technical University of Munich showed that ActiveDocs continues to be a top provider of document automation software for legal firms and organizations.

According to the research team, "ActiveDocs is a powerful tool with a high degree of customization and reusability." We outranked our competitors in the majority of categories.

Document automation that can work with your chosen technology

Connect to your existing systems

You likely already have your legal tech platforms all set up. Why not use this? We can help you integrate efficient document automation into your existing systems.

Whether you use iManage, Microsoft Office 365, Alfresco, or another management platform, ActiveDocs integrates with everything. Alongside our flexible API, we offer a range of out-of-the-box connectors for widely-used applications like DocuSign, Outlook, Salesforce, and SharePoint, to make the setup of your automation solution even simpler!

Effortless, out-of-the-box clause libraries

Most legal practices and judiciary bodies regularly work with large numbers of legal clauses. We can help you manage them efficiently, and use them with ease.

You can manage and track usage of thousands of clauses, with secure, permissions-based access. Your clause library can contain static and automated clauses.

Whenever you edit each automated clause, it's easy to see how the automation within it actually works. Neatly presented graphical information – instead of complicated rules and fields codes – gives you a clear overview of the logic within each clause.

Secure approval processes,
guaranteed data accuracy

No matter who in your team is putting together your documents, we can help you make sure that they use only the correct and up-to-date version of your content and data.

Approval processes provide an extra layer of security. Individual components, or entire document packets, can be subjected to review workflows with permissions-based access to editing and approval capability. That way, you can be sure your trainees and junior staff are able to draft accurate content with confidence – and the appropriate senior staff still get the final sign-off.

You can be certain that your documents are always in line with business standards and regulations, and use the correct data and the most recent information.

We can help you make document creation a smooth and efficient processs through document automation.

Clause Library Management

No matter how extensive your clause library, and regardless of how complex your clauses, everything can be managed centrally for easy use and maintenance.

Our technology lets you categorize and search your clauses, automatically insert them based on business logic, or insert them manually, into any Word document or email.

Once in place, each clause will display accurately and fit in with its given context to form a cohesive, correctly formatted and branded output.

Simple Automation Mark-up

You don't need to know code, remember any specific syntax, or manually type up fields. You can work inside Microsoft Word, with automation simply layered on top of your existing documents.

It's as quick as selecting the elements you need, building business rules in natural language, and applying them to selected text or document components.

Our customers tell us that their users really like the straightforward mark-up and non-codey design – it's easy on the eyes and simple to understand.

Training and Approval

With ActiveDocs, senior partners are able to provide trainees and associate colleagues with a controlled framework for document creation. This way, junior staff can learn your comapny's correct procedures, without the stress of accidentally sending out erroneous communications.

Staff work with data that is 100% in line with your data repositories, and with templates and clauses pre-approved by more experienced colleagues. Review and approval cycles ensure quality control by the right people, according to your firm's regulations and requirements.

"The more files a recovery manager can handle the more profitable they become. A large part of their job can be tedious document creation. If we can increase their productivity and reduce the tedium, it’s a win-win situation."

Steve Low, CIO at Consolidated Civil Enforcement Limited.

What is document automation?

Document automation is the process of transforming documents into intelligent templates, and then using these templates to create 100% accurate documents, every time.

Affidavits, writs, licenses, SEC filings – and all your other essential documentation – can be automated for guaranteed compliance and maximum efficiency.
