The LawToolBox integration is a solid bridge to connect Microsoft Office 365 to the legal industry
DENVER (PRWEB) July 16, 2018
LawToolBox, a market leader in delivering modern solutions for legal professionals in Microsoft Office 365, announces its Deadline App for Microsoft Teams that combines its deadline management tools with new and powerful business analytics and search capabilities. LawToolBox built this integration on the Microsoft platform because many law firms are embracing the Teams collaboration environment for their attorneys and staff. See, “Why Microsoft Teams Will Soon Be Just as Common as Outlook”, Gartner (June 18, 2018).
For decades, LawToolBox has automated the calculation and management of off-the-shelf and build-your-own rules-based deadlines based on rules of procedure in civil litigation and administrative courts, addressing the malpractice risk of a missed deadline and streamlining the practice of law for law firms and legal departments.
This new LawToolBox app for Teams builds on this history and amplifies its award-winning LawToolBox365 Office for Legal which is an Outlook add-in that is sold through select Microsoft partners in the CSP program (Cloud Service Provider program) via Microsoft’s Partner Center. The LawToolBox Outlook add-in is Co-Sell ready and can be installed directly from Microsoft AppSource (download now). Consistent with the LawToolBox philosophy of empowering users to manage deadlines from wherever they are working, users can jump back and forth between Teams and Outlook to manage the same matters. Product features include:
+ Automation - calculate litigation and administrative deadlines based on applicable rules
+ Automation – add, update and remove deadlines
+ Automation - instantly updating team member Outlook calendars as deadlines and users change
+ Reports – view, email and share deadlines for a matter, user, team or firm-wide
+ Reports - jump from bot into LawToolBox Tab in Teams to dig deeper
+ Matter Info - filter by recent matters, my matters, firm matters, or matter name
+ Analytics – view business analytics related to average length of matters and motions
+ Analytics - leverages Microsoft Power BI to analyze your relationship with co-workers
+ Search – find files in Microsoft SharePoint using key words and phrases
The LawToolBox app for Teams provides an important new tool to manage compliance deadlines wherever and whenever legal professionals want them. Jack Grow, the President of LawToolBox, says “This integration with Microsoft Teams is a powerful and crucial step in our mission to help good attorneys become great attorneys, and to deliver next-generation deadline management tools for law firms and corporate legal departments.”
“The LawToolBox app amplifies the collaboration features of Microsoft Teams with expanded tools for legal professionals to manage their legal matters. The LawToolBox integration is a solid bridge to connect Microsoft Office 365 to the legal industry,” said Mike Ammerlaan, director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp.
