Together with our partner Epona Documentaal has welcomed Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLC to the Legal Desktop. A suite of applications including Microsoft Office 365, Epona DMSforLegal, and Documentaal dStyle 365

Mr Cronyn had this to say about the selection process: “The Epona solution set actively converts the Office 365 investment into a DMS of unparalleled capability for the cost. When adding dStyle the Word Template assembly tool raises the value of our investment significantly by adding even more end user productivity. After a summer of design and deployment, we expect to be in full production before years end.”

Rob Duijndam, President of Documentaal, “We are very excited about this deployment of our Word Template Management Solutions for Nelligan. Documentaal has had tremendous success in Europe over the last eight years, by adding Nelligan to our account base we add a premier Canadian firm to our North American expansion.”

Keith Vallely, Vice-President of Epona USA, said: “The Nelligan team has already approved a powerful and elegant design for their custom Office 365 DMS. I can speak for all of Epona when I say, The Nelligan team has been excellent to work with. We expect the DMS deployment and roll out to be completed by years end.”

Successful integration with dStyle 365

dStyle is well known as a premier document creation suite. Exiting are the new dStyle API and the integration layer capabilities. These capabilities enabled Nelligan to easily include all matter related data from ProLaw from Elite within their templates.

During the implementation, Documentaal had to face some technical challenges. For Nick Snijder, lead developer of Documentaal, this was “business as usual”. He connected the dStyle-application not only with Epona’s DMS, but also with ProLaw, the business management system from Thomson Reuters’ Elite. Now that the integration is in place, templates can easily be created using data from ProLaw. The author of the document then only has to select the matter, and client and matter data are automatically added. Once the document is ready for sending, it is automatically stored in the DMS, using the matter name from ProLaw.
