Macfarlanes and Howard Kennedy among law firms to adopt Kim Document for automation

UK top 100 law firms Macfarlanes and Howard Kennedy are among those using Kim’s no-code, SaaS document generation, assembly and workflow automation platform, as the UK-headquartered vendor flags high adoption rates across firms of all sizes.

While Kim has been enabling document generation and automation across corporate legal, compliance, contract management, and company secretarial functions for years, since the launch in late 2022 of Kim Document – a productised version of Kim’s document generation capability – law firms have embraced the new product.

“We are using Kim Document to automate our supplier questionnaires and related documents as part of our vendor onboarding process. It was quick to make live and has helped reduce time and effort onboarding new suppliers,” said Andrew Powell, CIO at Macfarlanes.

Tony McKenna, director of information technology at Howard Kennedy said “Kim Document, for us, was a no-brainer due to the simplicity of use and the attractive price point. Kim will help the firm automate those documents that aren’t high value enough to justify a full-blown document automation platform but where they would still like control over the data collected.”

Kim Document helps knowledge workers automate the creation of documents, capture data, and use that data to generate other documents or populate other systems. Accessible via a web browser and integrated with the likes of Microsoft Teams, law firms can use Kim Document to convert current documents (e.g., letters, forms, contracts, compliance records, and other content) into web applications without training or help from IT.

“Kim Document is aimed at small, mid and large organisations. It applies to almost any function or role,” said Karl Chapman, CEO of Kim. “It is pleasing that global law firms, which is a new vertical for us, have responded so positively to our new product. We thought that law firms had solved the document automation challenge. How wrong were we. With the value of hindsight, the release of Kim Document could not have been better timed.”

Samantha Jefferies, VP of sales at Kim Document said: “It is amazing to witness how quickly law firms of various sizes are embracing Kim. Kim is assisting these firms in standardising templates for frequently used documents and forms and offering a more efficient approach to capturing data from numerous clients, suppliers, or employees. Kim’s ability to collect data once, push it into one or many systems, and generate multiple documents, is helping firms to streamline areas that are typically arduous for clients, such as funding, data protection, pensions, or onboarding internally.”

Kim Document is hosting a free webinar for law firms on Wednesday, 8 March 2023, focusing on how intelligent document automation and generation can save time, improve accuracy, and reduce errors. Register here to book your seat.
