What are the benefits of eDOCS?

  • Instant access to complete content

    Findability is key to productivity. eDOCS’ metadata approach and powerful search capabilities provide instant access to related work product to give users a complete, holistic view into a client, project, matter or case. Users can also navigate to content using familiar folder structures or Flex Folders, which instantly display available content based on metadata. They can reference saved searches and recently edited files. eDocs provides a single source of the truth, but still allows users to view changes over multiple document versions.

  • Operational excellence

    Organizations looking for competitive advantage need better ways to perform key business activities and reduce costs, without sacrificing superior client service. Digital information fueling digital processes can offer significant operational efficiencies to help organizations compete in the digital age.
