iManage Your Law Practice Emails And Documents Efficiently
Are you considering a document management system for your firm? Look no further. With iManage Work 10.2 from iManage, paper mayhem can be seamlessly transformed into smart, agile and efficient document and email management.
Even in an increasingly paperless era, the world still goes through reams of it, topping 400 million tons in the typical year, according to the Environmental Paper Network. Law firms are chief among the paper-pushers, producing contracts, briefs, notes, motions, memoranda and pleadings in any given afternoon.
Without the proper planning and preparation, all that paper – whether printed out or logged online – can easily get lost, misplaced or thrown out, physically or electronically.
Introduced in the summer of 2018, iManageWork 10.2 is the very latest document and email management program software that features all the applications that users have come to rely upon. However, the latest iteration boasts a plethora of functionalities that make it even more user-friendly and comprehensive than its previous versions.
Partnering with a long-time certified iManage partner, like Afinety, will ensure that your firm’s integration and training are included. In addition, iManage Work 10 runs seamlessly in the cloud and integrates beautifully with the Afinety Cloud Platform and Office 365.

iManage Work 10.2 is ideal for Apple users because it now features product support for the various Apple systems the document and email management program can be downloaded on, like the iPad, Macbook or iMac. It also makes file sharing and interaction more seamless with the addition of iManage Drive. This new option makes it easier for users to drag and drop files in the appropriate folders or delete them if they are no longer needed.
