New cloud-based document exchange service addresses the shortcomings of typical document sharing methods with a secure and convenient platform designed specifically for the legal market.
Toronto – July 11, 2019 – Korbitec, the leading provider of document automation solutions for Canadian civil litigators, has launched xchangedocs, a secure document exchange solution. The cloud-based service enables law firms to assure that only the intended party receives a shared document.
The new Korbitec solution addresses the inherent risk in typical document sharing. Email, for example, can be addressed to the wrong recipient or intercepted by a third party with malintent. Thumb drives can easily fall into the wrong hands. And consumer file sharing services can expose confidential information because they were never designed to provide the required security.
“With any of these methods, it’s too easy for a document to be exposed to the wrong eyes.” said Alan Bass, Korbitec President”. “Lawyers have an obligation to protect the confidential information of their clients when they share documents with anyone involved in a matter.”
In addition to reducing risk, the xchangedocs solution includes features designed to improve productivity and maximize convenience. Files of any size can be shared. Each document is automatically classified by the system based on the user’s specified naming convention. A real-time audit feature records document receipt and open dates. And users can access the service through a web browser on any desktop computer or mobile device.
“It was time that Canadian lawyers had a simple way to securely exchange documents through a platform designed specifically for legal matters,” said Bass.
The xchangedocs service is also integrated with Korbitec’s ACL5 document automation software, and the company provides non-ACL5 users with the ability to subscribe. xchangedocs is fully compliant with Ontario Rules of Civil Procedure and is available immediately through the Korbitec website or at xchangedocs.ca.
