Microsoft Office – powerhouse of the LawWare Suite.
Microsoft’s Office Suite: Word, Outlook and Excel is at the very heart of LawWare. In many respects, LawWare can be regarded as the fourth Office component. Microsoft Office Integration
The ability to work with both LawWare and Office as integrated components of the software package allows you to:
- Open Word documents from within LawWare.
- Drag and drop emails into client files from Outlook.
- Store all your office generated documents within your matter files.
This level of Microsoft Office integration also allows you to use client detail data to generate bulk mailings and emails. Thus allowing you to keep your clients up to speed via newsletter or to canvass them for more business.
More about MS Office.
Microsoft Office comprises a collection of office-related applications. Each application serves a unique purpose and offers a specific service to its users. For example, Microsoft Word allows you to create documents. Microsoft Excel provides spreadsheet ability and Microsoft Outlook manages email and calendars. There are others as well.
There is a multitude of applications to choose from. Consequently, not every user needs all of them. Microsoft often groups the applications together in collections called suites. However, the web-based Microsoft Office 365 is the version that Microsoft would prefer users to adopt.
Integration and automation.
Microsoft office integration means your LawWare software works seamlessly with Outlook. It solves the problem of storing emails in one place and other matter correspondence in another.
The “side-by-side” layout of the LawWare user interface allows you to work on a case file whilst viewing Microsoft Outlook at the same time. This gives you the flexibility to file your emails against a case file with ease.
With automatic email filing, your software recognises individual emails and to which case file they belong and files them accordingly. That means you never lose track of your correspondence.
