Benefits of Document Assembly Software

Increase productivity

Using document assembly software enables quicker first draft generation and the option to create a suite of documents from only one questionnaire. Contract Express saves both time and human resource required to generate the first draft of a document, enabling law firms to respond quicker to their clients’ demands.

Focus fee earner time

Streamlining the document creation process with document assembly software makes better use of fee earner time by removing the more laborious aspects of contract drafting. This in turn frees up lawyer time to dedicate to more challenging, higher value work, resulting in a more satisfied workforce and better service delivery to clients.

Guaranteed accuracy & consistency

Ensuring first draft consistency and accuracy secures document quality across all practice areas. Through our legal document assembly software, firms can set the level of excellence for their documents, ensure consistent style and protect the firm’s brand image.

Trusted content

Our user-friendly template creation add-in for Microsoft Word is designed by lawyers for lawyers. Contract Express Author eliminates the delays, errors, loss of trust, costs and lack of feasibility associated with limiting legal document assembly software that requires working with programmers to automate templates.

Retain domain knowledge & expertise

Protect the law firm against vulnerability from lateral moves by harnessing the expertise of the firm’s attorneys in document assembly templates.

Fully styled documents

Generated documents will be one or more fully compliant .doc, .docx or locked PDFs. Each document is meaningfully named and fully styled, with numbering, cross references, pagination, headers/footers, footnotes, and table of contents – all as determined by the Word template using standard law firm Word styles and tools, and all without requiring any post assembly intervention to apply or correct Word styling.

Easy Template Creation

While other document assembly systems require templates to be created in a complex proprietary or XML based computer language, Contract Express Author provides for intuitive, natural language mark up in Microsoft Word. All set-up is done from within Microsoft Word by lawyers, enabling templates of any complexity to be set up more quickly than with any other document assembly software.
