So, it appears there is a growing interest by many professionals in economizing the time spent on mundane and tedious document generation and contract review activities ... no surprise there! But it IS surprising to see how much time is actually spent on such activities by well paid professionals!
During the recent Webinar hosted by xRM4legal, we explored how two specific areas of the legal professional's activities are burdened with heavy manual processes- resulting in high inefficiency and cost increases:
- The existing processes for document generation
- The existing methods of contract review
Take a look at the Webinar for a view into how some law firms have started to address these pains with both easy to use, deploy and support software as well as more efficient processes. Adoption by legal professi... Read more

As the support for applications such as Calligo and IStream fades, it is likely to expect that the support level you will receive will also diminish. There are several inevitabilities that will occur as vendors sunset application support:

- I got my support but are you gonna get yours?
I narrowly escaped the shedding of a tear a few months back when I was 're-structured' out of Oracle's organizational plans. Having put in about 13 years with the company that started out as Insystems but eventually ended up in Oracle's portfolio of acquisitions after several other incarnations as Standard Register, Whitehill and Skywire, it was a daunting prospect to think that I would be abandoning the comfort and familiarity of the environment I had known for well over a decade. It was far from a surprise as Oracle had redundant offerings for document automation software in their toolset and had chosen to move forward with the Documaker application instead of the IStream software where the majority of my background was rooted.
Nonetheless, a shock to the foundation such as sudden unemployment causes one to undergo some personal reflection, but with the support of my family and a f... Read more
