HOUSTON, TX, August 12, 2013 – Bridgeway Software, the most recommended provider of legal services management solutions, today announced the immediate availability of LawManager 6.4®, the industry-leading case and matter management software. The latest version increases an attorney's ability to access legal information in a safe and secure manager from any device, anywhere and at any time.
By fully integrating LawManager 6.4 with Bridgeway E-mail Link clients have the ability to access LawManager information from any IMAP capable email client such as Microsoft Outlook. With Bridgeway E-mail Link, LawManager users can easily view the information found in LawManager, take actions and easily save emails and documents. The solution provides the ability to control what information should be displayed using a configurable template that creates custom summaries leveraging LawManager meta-data.
In addition, action folders can be created which enable users to perform operations on their information such as approving an invoice or approving a budget. The latest version also supports greater collaboration by giving users the ability to easily drag & drop emails & documents.
"If LawManager can meet the complex needs of Legal Aid as it has done for our unique high volume practice, then it can certainly meet the matter-management needs of any law department in the country," said Steven Banks, Attorney-in-Chief at The Legal Aid Society.
Offering anytime/anywhere access to case and matter information, the latest version of LawManager is the only extensible product in the Enterprise Legal Management space that supports a dual, platform architecture – giving clients the choice between a traditional Windows interface for heavy data entry or a Web interface for ease of deployment. New components in v6.4 also include a new Report Designer and the integration of the application's Report Wizard into both architectures.
Maintaining full support for SAP Business Objects' business intelligence products, LawManager Pro 6.4 continues to build upon the new capabilities released earlier this year in LawManager Pro 6.3, which include:
