We have significantly speeded up and harmonised our document generation process...
Edinburgh, UK and Berlin, Germany (PRWEB UK) 17 May 2016
With more than 900 HotDocs user licences, HotDocs Server and a customised HotDocs Workspace front end that integrates with several of the law firm’s other applications, the roll-out at CMS Hasche Sigle is the most significant deployment of HotDocs document automation technology within the German legal market to date. The firm started its HotDocs journey in 2012 with just a few HotDocs users and has increased usage incrementally since then, culminating in this enterprise-wide deployment.
HotDocs will be used to automate a wide range of documents across various practice areas, such as Legal Services, Banking & Finance, Corporate Law, Labour Law, Public Law and Real Estate. The Global Services Team at HotDocs worked with CMS Hasche Sigle to provide a customised Workspace that integrates with several in-house systems and connects to HotDocs Hub for storage, management and version control.
Axel Dippmann, Equity Partner and HotDocs Project Sponsor at CMS in Germany, commented: “This company-wide deployment of a document automation solution will facilitate an increase in productivity and will also make a positive impact on document styling and accuracy, empowering us with time to spend on legal content.”
Dr Pierre Zickert, Research Associate and HotDocs Project Manager at CMS Hasche Sigle, commented: “For us, the main benefit of our HotDocs solution is that it shifts the lawyer’s focus from time-consuming text editing to where it belongs, focussing on the legal issue. As we have integrated the automation software with other firm applications we have significantly speeded up and harmonised our document generation process.”
Gary Eunson, Commercial Director at HotDocs, added: “After initial deployment, the benefit and return on investment provided by HotDocs is immediately clear. More and more often, customers are increasing software licencing to offer HotDocs technology to additional divisions and teams, driving efficiency and controlling document production right across their businesses. I am delighted that CMS Hasche Sigle, one of Europe’s premier law firms, is now using our document automation technology across the whole organisation.”
HotDocs is the market leading provider of document automation software, with customers in 60 different countries and a user-base, globally, that exceeds one million. Document automation, or document assembly, allows a vast reduction in time spent in the production of high volume, repeat documentation such as contracts, agreements and other legal paperwork.
Widely used within the legal, banking, insurance, public and corporate sectors, HotDocs software also increases accuracy, reduces cost/risk and improves efficiency in the generation of complex, or simple, documentation. The software is available on premise, on desktop or via the cloud and can operate in a standalone capacity or as part of a wider business process management system, such as workflow, document management or case management systems.
