Juro and The Link App are now free to access to help businesses collaborate remotely during COVID-19 crisis.

Juro’s contract management platform’s basic plan is free for 12 months. Basic plans allow businesses to add up to two users, so they can create, collaborate on and agree contracts right away. They don’t include larger deployments, nor the configuration of advanced integrations, due to the implementation time involved, but otherwise there are no limits.

Pavel Kovalevich, co-founder and CPO of Juro, said: “Since this crisis began, we’ve seen some customers’ usage triple, and others bringing whole teams into the platform so they can collaborate remotely. If we’re able to help more businesses work through this crisis, then there was no question for us that we should do so.”

Meanwhile The Link App provides a secure and confidential communication tool, now for free, across all devices: home computers, laptops, ipads, iphones and Androids. Users can message clients, share documents, and enable clients to access case updates.

Founder and CEO Lauren Riley said: “We recognise that these are difficult times. As businesses relocate and adapt to homeworking, our clients will need communication streams to be open – more than ever. Client reassurance and retention will be a priority.

“In uncertain times, when homeworking is enforced, it will become so much more important for legal teams to stay connected. To reassure their clients, to continue to provide a professional service.”

The Link App now enables internal communication and has adapted its platform to allow all employees within a firm to use the one channel, either for one to one or group chats.

Riley added: “We know the legal profession well. We know that all firms are not set up for home working in a way that other sectors are – the fact that The Link App works across all devices is key. Teams can interact with each other and their clients with ease. We appreciate this may be a difficult time for many and we hope this can help.”
