Worldox vs. iManage – A Document Management System Comparison
The right legal document management system (DMS) is essential for many law firms. Since the creation and adoption of cloud-based technology, law firms can now choose between a digital DMS system that may be hosted and operated from a firm’s on-premise server and one that is hosted and operated from the cloud. Here at Uptime Legal, we spend a lot of time talking with law firms about their current technology use and how they can create a better and more productive overall experience. For that reason, in this article we’ll compare two popular document management platforms head-to-head: Worldox vs. iManage.

It would be great if every DMS available offered exactly what your law firm needs to function better. However, the truth is that much of what is out there in terms of document management software isn’t made specifically with the legal industry in mind. Sure, many law firms may use these applications (because anythign is better than “the G: drive”), but that doesn’t mean it’s the best overall fit for your law firm.
