iManage Drive

Drive user adoption with iManage Drive

Today’s busy professionals demand ease of use software or they will not adopt. They do not have time to learn cumbersome software applications or spend hours in training. Instead, they demand applications that conform to established UI paradigms such as Internet shopping and adapt to their evolving work styles.

In an effort to streamline operating costs, enforce security standards and improve overall efficiency, many organizations, implement software solutions as way to mitigate these risks. They often face resistance from within the organization because these solutions are difficult to use, impedes the user’s workflow and reduce productivity.

iManage Drive addresses these challenges by bringing the comprehensive functionality and security of a Document and Email Management system (DMS) to the organization without burdening or impeding the user’s existing workflow. With iManage Drive, professionals can access and manage their iManage Work Workspaces, documents and files from a familiar Windows Explorer or Mac Finder interface. There is no complicated software to learn, and users can get up to speed quickly. By implementing iManage Drive, corporations can drive user adoption and truly make the document system for everyone within the organization.

Access documents and files without compromising disc space

iManage Drive allows you to manage and access content in your iManage Workspaces from Windows Explorer or Mac Finder. Once installed, users can sync their local iManage Drive with their iManage Work to view and navigate documents and files. Synced files are indicated by a cloud icon and can only be viewed within iManage Drive when online.

When synching, only metadata information is downloaded. This allows professionals to utilize iManage Drive to quickly browse all Workspaces, folders, subfolders and files without downloading actual content to their local machine. To download the file and bring the document to your local machine for off-line access, simply right click on the file and select the download option. Downloaded files are indicated by a green check mark.

iManage Drive puts users in control and let them decide what information they want to download to their local machine – Thus saving valuable disc space.
