“From a technical perspective the product was very attractive because it only required off the shelf hardware and the ability to use Microsoft SQL express was a major cost savings.”
SAFE electronic document management makes it possible for law firms to decrease time spent filing and looking for documents — leading to increased efficiency and more billable hours.
SAFE is effectively structured to handle letters, contracts, pleadings, claims, referrals, scans, emails, standard forms, phone messages and more. Scanning, filing and routing stop being work-intensive, paper-based tasks and become repeatable, automated digital workflows. The result is more efficient information sharing, more effective process controls and increases to productivity.
Why document management?
An electronic document management system can replace paper files and documents in an office, enabling users to send electronic documents through the same steps a paper document or file would follow.

Document management systems, like SAFE, are primarily used in the legal profession to increase efficiency and eliminate the costly inconsistencies that are common in a paper-based process. For instance, if the firm has a new case form that is filled out for each client account and it must proceed from the attorney to a paralegal and then back to the attorney, then a document management system must provide the same path. So a true document management system not only provides storage, but must provide the same workflow capabilities.

Along the way it must also protect documents so that only authorized people can view, edit and/or delete documents based on the individual’s access rights. An example might be a client’s financial records. These records should be kept confidential and an audit trail kept of all access. A document management system is a step up from the point solutions like spreadsheets and word processors as it is a firm wide solution. It must be easy and straightforward to use and ideally integrate with other applications the office is already using with a minimum of effort.
