The Oregon Professional Liability Fund, the mandatory primary malpractice coverage for privately practicing Oregon attorneys, has improved multiple functions of their business using ColumbiaSoft’s Document Locator. With Document Locator, an electronic document management system, employees of the Fund can easily and quickly obtain claim information and use important archive information.

Oregon’s Professional Liability Fund works with approximately 7,400 lawyers around the state. The Fund provides lawyers with the mandatory minimum coverage of $300,000. They also offer coverage of up to $10 million on an underwritten basis.

The Fund’s work demands a very high level of accuracy, and a strong ability to properly file and retrieve specific documents. The consequences of just one misplaced file could potentially be devastating to the Fund’s finances and reputation. With a single claim requiring up to 20 bankers boxes worth of files, the Fund could not rely on an archaic and cumbersome paper-based file management system and chose Document Locator software to manage files electronically.

"We use Document Locator to reduce the physical, mental and cost challenges involved with managing all of our has changed our archival material into a powerful reference tool available at all times," says Jeff Crawford, Administration Director, Oregon Professional Liability Fund. "It is, literally, an ‘out of the box’ solution.

"It’s no secret that time is money when it comes to the legal profession," says David Pogue, executive vice president, ColumbiaSoft. "Many of the Fund employees who use Document Locator are attorneys or other highly-skilled professionals whose time is very valuable. The ease of finding what’s needed is an asset to both the Fund and its clients."
