Save emails and file attachments from your outlook inbox

Legal professionals spend much of their day in their Outlook trying to process emails and file attachments before they get buried in their inbox. 

Poor document management practices, like storing important documents in personal inboxes or saving them to desktop folders, result in irreplaceable work product being lost. Poor document management leads to mistakes, misallocation of resources, and version control mismatch.

The solution to this type of file chaos is to centralize and unify the storage of information so that all team members access the original information instead of copies.  

If there is a single source where matter emails and files are saved, then all teams members can effortlessly be on the same page.
