Law firms need to effectively communicate both internally and externally, while increasing sales and managing expenses. In this digitally-driven landscape, they are, however, faced with some unique challenges in managing court rules, large volumes of data, regulatory compliance, and security. To help law firms grow their business and increase efficiency in today’s complex business environment, Ingram Micro is pleased to partner with LawToolBox.com Inc. an all-in-one court rules provider and deadline management system provider to bundle LawToolBox365 with Microsoft Office 365 as an Outlook add-in.
“This announcement further demonstrates how collaboration can lead to increased levels of efficiency and productivity with the right technology in the workplace,” said Cindy Bates, VP of US SMB for Microsoft. “This tool will provide great opportunity for modern lawyers as they look to optimize their businesses in our increasingly digital world.”
As an Outlook add-in, LawToolBox365 is integrated with Office 365 and creates a matter-based backbone inside Outlook that enables legal professionals to manage deadlines from beginning to end without ever leaving their Outlook Inbox.
