In brief: BigHand announces iManage Work 10 integration

Bighand is the latest iManage partner to announce an integration with Work 10, the newest version of iManage’s work product management system.
By automating much of the document profiling process and giving users access to a range of styling and formatting tools, the BigHand Create and iManage Work 10 integration is said to significantly improve the quality and efficiency of the document production process, regardless of the users’ level of experience.
“By retrieving client data from the iManage database and inserting it into the correct BigHand Create template fields automatically, the integration significantly reduces the chance of human error and ensures all documents are profiled and stored correctly. Firms also have the flexibility to enforce profiling rules per document type, so not just one, but all versions of a document can be saved against the correct iManage record,” BigHand’s statement today (30 May) will say.
“For users, creating a new document is much simpler with the integration as profiling is automated from the point of selecting the iManage workspace and folder. In addition, users can easily ‘stamp’ documents with key identifying information like author and creation date, as well as data from any custom iManage field, with BigHand DocID. This means firms can reference documents in a consistent manner with minimal effort.”
Other partners to integrate with Work 10 include Workshare and DocsCorp.
