Legal professionals often equate iManage with only document management. What many don’t know is that iManage offers much more. In a reflection of iManage’s making knowledge work mission statement, the solution allows you to demonstrate the full value of your experience no matter what device you’re using by giving you the ability to incorporate other sources of analytical and practical data to discover contextually relevant content, expertise, best practices and insights on whatever you’re working on.

Today we’ll discuss two more products offered by iManage that can help legal professionals work collaboratively and intelligently to achieve their goals. 

iManage Extract uses artificial intelligence to automate the extraction of critical data points to create structured data that enhances the quality of legal and contract services.

Some key features are:

  • Connect to iManage Work and other document repositories or simply upload documents using drag and drop;
  • Use machine learning to cluster and classify documents based on the content;
