Matter-Centric Collaboration design Digitizes and Organizes Law Offices

While attorneys who are accustomed to working with physical files typically find themselves handling an expandable folder that contains several manila folders which house the documents pertaining to correspondence, memorandums and other information that is vital to a case, those who choose to use Matter-Centric Collaboration design will find that their files may be managed more efficiently, and will be readily available to each individual who works on a case. Simply put, MCC allows those working on a case to interact with documents in the same way that they would with the more recognizable, physical files.

Matter Centric Collaboration provides attorneys and their administrative staff with an electronic Workspace that behaves similarly to the expandable folder that is so often used in firms that prefer to work with physical documents. The Workspace contains electronic matter files, which serve as the manila folders that are used to further organize physical documents into sub-files; this is where using MCC design becomes particularly useful: Instead of simply containing the documents that generally begin as physical items, lawyers may now organize electronic documents and pieces of communication more easily. Additionally, users will be able to avoid the step that requires filling out a profile form for each document in favor of simply saving it to a file location. From here, metadata will be copied to the document profile. This simplified process allows firms to collect and maintain a larger quantity and higher quality of metadata.
