What makes innova™ stand out as the go-to document automation platform?
Litéra Chief Consultant Sherry Kappel a veteran of nearly 600 law firm Office migrations, gave an in-depth answer to this question in a recent interview.
During our discussion, Sherry explained how innova™ can benefit document-intensive organizations in ways no other platform can.
Basically, there are 5 major advantages to innova™ automation:
- Document Resiliency
- Self-Service Design
- Enterprise Architecture
- Office 365 Ready
- The Litéra Factor
“Our innova™ development and product teams work closely to ensure feature‑fidelity across the Word and Office platforms – whether it is support for numbering and TOC on Word for the desktop, on mobile devices or in Word Online.”
Law firms share content and collaborate. It is fundamental to their process.
However, heavily-automated documents sometimes present challenges during the client-collaboration cycle. Automation products that don’t leverage native Microsoft Word make documents hard to edit outside the law firm’s environment.
With innova™, clients can easily work on documents using native Word functionality, generate a Table of Contents, work with numbering, and return them to the law firm with the automation intact.
“With innova™, the entire design tool kit required for automation of sophisticated document workflows is built into the product.”
As a design tool, innova™ has tremendous flexibility allowing in-house resources to create and revise templates, design native Word and innova™ ribbons, and develop dialogs – all with an easy-to-use GUI. No prior development knowledge is required. This model permits faster updates to automation and creates a truly firm-specific environment. The innova™ platform offers this along with flexible implementation, i.e., a firm can choose from a pool of skilled and certified implementation partners, or they can perform the implementation with their own resources.
“The innova™ platform automates everything from what litigation teams require, to firm-wide correspondence, private client trusts and estates, to business documents like contracts and engagement letters which require conditional logic and governance of clauses. One product serves all of those needs plus dozens more we’ve begun to explore.”
Firms of all sizes and geographic footprints are realizing the comprehensive capabilities of Litéra® technologies for content creation and automation. Key enterprise features include: integrations with a wide array of document and contact management systems; flexible caching capabilities; settings to store and share document creation shortcuts (QuickFills); and a mature, data-base driven design. Perhaps most importantly, this enterprise management is coupled with the ability to segregate templates by office, or even by practice area. This allows each user to see only those templates relevant to his/her job.
Office 365 Ready
“With innova™, Litéra continues to bridge and extend capabilities from one version of Office to the next. Now you can add Office 365 to the mix, and innova™ gets to ride even further on the momentum Microsoft has gained through its platform improvements.”
The most exciting time for document automation has arrived. Office 365 makes technology more accessible to front-end business. Integrating innova™ as an add-in through the Litéra App Launcher empowers people at the business level to work anytime, anywhere and on any device.
The Litéra Factor
“When organizations choose a template package, they’re basically choosing a partner for life. It’s never a decision just about the tech, or the services, or the capabilities. It comes down to a relationship. Value in a relationship with Litéra is in the consistent reliable result – and one that innovates with you.”
We are proud of our team. But we are even prouder of the client relationships we have established and maintained over the years. When you choose innova™, you not only choose awell-architected, feature-rich product, but you also choose a product supported by a team with (literally) hundreds of years of law firm document preparation and automation experience.
