Document management is a kind of software that stores, organizes and provides tools to help your law firm manage its documents. Beyond the basic storage that you’ll find with an on-premise file server, or basic cloud storage services like Dropbox, document management software provides capabilities including full-text search, version management, OCR, document tagging and more.

Document management software provides structure and tools for your firm, your matters and the documents (and email) for each matter. Document Management software such as LexWorkplace helps you manage document versions, find what you’re looking for, tag and categorize documents, organize matters and matter documents, and much more.

Good Document Management software also integrates with the tools you use most, such as Microsoft Office and Outlook.

Document Management software stores, manages documents and email, and does so in a very robust way. Practice Management software, on the other hand, provides contact management, calendars, billing and other “front-office” functions. Practice Management software sometimes includes rudimentary file storage, but almost always lacks the robust functionality of a true Document Management System.

If you’re a law firm, yes. LexWorkplace is the only document management software born in the cloud and built exclusively for law firms. Other document management software is either not cloud-based, crudely cloud-based, or built for the masses (not for law firms).
