BigHand, a supplier of speech, workflow and document creation technology to law firms, has announced the release of BigHand Create Version 7.4.0, which fully integrates with iManage Work, the industry’s leading document and email management application. The integration will allow users to create documents directly from the iManage DMS in just two clicks, saving a significant amount of time and administrative work for users.

BigHand Create is a software tool that ensures firm-wide document consistency by giving law firms the ability to manage and distribute document templates centrally. The latest version of the software integrates with iManage to streamline the document production process further, not only allowing users to create documents directly from within the DMS, but by automatically pulling information like client and matter numbers into the relevant fields. The integration allows firms to set standard naming conventions for their files from relevant iManage fields and BigHand data, allowing document titles to be automatically generated. It also allows documents to be saved in the right location in the DMS without the need for manual intervention from users.

Judye Releford, Director of Client Solutions at BigHand comments: “The integration between BigHand Create and iManage means a much simpler, slicker and more user-friendly document production process within the law firm. It saves each individual user a lot of time, greatly reduces the chance of human error, ensures all documents are consistent and that they can be found and retrieved easily. Any law firm using iManage and BigHand Create will benefit significantly from the integration in the latest release; it’s going to make a real impact on their current processes. We are very excited about this partnership.”

BigHand’s integration with iManage means thousands of law firms can benefit from simpler and more efficient document production. For more information about how this technology could work for your firm, please contact inquiry(at)
