DENVER (PRWEB) March 02, 2020
LawToolBox announces that beginning today - as Microsoft rolls out a new class of apps called Microsoft 365 Apps - IT professionals are able to discover, purchase, test, deploy and manage LawToolBox inside their own Microsoft 365 Admin Center. This means that IT professionals will be able to purchase and manage LawToolBox in the same secure admin center they manage Microsoft services.
“We are excited to be among the first Microsoft 365 Apps making it easier for IT professionals to deploy apps like LawToolBox with integrations for Outlook, for Microsoft Teams, for a browser, or for all three, with a single click from the Microsoft 365 Admin Center,” says Jack Grow, CEO of LawToolBox. Further, Microsoft 365 apps fast track procurement by adding LawToolBox to the Microsoft monthly invoice while increasing trust with clients by layering LawToolBox security self-attestation alongside Microsoft’s security and privacy certifications.
Within the legal market, the LawToolBox focus on deadline management differentiates it from other legal products. LawToolBox has a robust deadline management system to automate deadline calculations based on court rules, administrative proceedings and custom deadline templates that if not handled properly are at the root of almost 40% of all malpractice claims against legal professionals. The LawToolBox SaaS offers for Microsoft Teams or Outlook turn Microsoft 365 into a powerful solution for legal that allows law firms and legal departments to better leverage Microsoft products they are already paying for. These integrations deliver a seamless cross-platform experience that creates matters and transforms Microsoft 365 into a collaboration suite for legal professionals to manage their deadlines, documents, notes, contacts, emails and calendars.
What New Things can IT Pros do with the LawToolBox Microsoft 365 App? Today IT professionals can discover LawToolBox for Outlook or Teams in AppSource with the option to also purchase directly, through their Microsoft Partner, or through their Microsoft Account Executive. With the launch of the LawToolBox Microsoft 365 App, IT professionals will also be able to manage the process end-to-end from within the Microsoft Admin Center.
If a firm wants to deploy all LawToolBox integrations simultaneously, they now have the tools to do so. However, if a firm isn’t ready for Teams yet, an IT Pro can initially deploy just the LawToolBox Outlook add-in, and later deploy for Teams when the timing is right. With this new method, LawToolBox is riding the cutting edge of Microsoft’s journey to open their channel to modern 3rd party apps as part of a seamless user experience.
To help IT professionals make better informed decisions about deploying integrations into their organization and to further streamline the buying process, LawToolBox has included publisher-attested compliance information in the AppSource app catalog with information across over 40 different standards, extended with information from Microsoft Cloud App Security, is now one click away from the AppSource catalog entry for applications. Prospective buyers won’t have to open a new purchase agreement to approve LawToolBox or go through an exhaustive RFQ process on security and pricing. Instead, LawToolBox uses the publisher-attestation tools provided by Microsoft to inform the buyer and streamline the process for legal professionals to discover, buy, test, deploy and manage LawToolBox through its integration inside Office 365.
