The new capabilities in Aderant Total Office include split billing, document management enhancements, rich integration with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, and user interface improvements. This release also includes the integration with Aderant CompuLaw court rules to ensure that tasks and critical dates involving court rules are calculated accurately, which helps prevent the leading cause of legal malpractice claims.
A major focus of the 9.1 SP1 release was on providing greater functionality to the Total Office document management system. Many enhancements were based on client feedback and include user interface improvements, access to a “recently edited list,” integration with Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint, and easier searching capabilities, including the ability to open and search for documents from within Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. As part of their annual maintenance contract, current Total Office clients can download the new release from the Aderant Support Portal at no cost.
“More than 1,600 small to mid-sized law firms use Aderant Total Office to manage, grow, and protect their business using powerful financial management, plaintiff accounting, and case management capabilities integrated with Microsoft Office,” stated Chris Giglio, chief executive officer for Aderant. “This new release adds key features requested by our clients and delivers capabilities that will not only improve the user’s experience and productivity, but will give the firm a solid foundation for growth.”
