BEC MatterLink

With your investment in iManage, your firm has committed to the matter-centric organization of all documents. MatterLink does the same for all other matter information. It extends the value of matter centricity by providing a customizable matter file that is linked to the corresponding iManage workspace. MatterLink is the central hub for matter details, associated contacts, interested users, notes, attachments, customized data fields and iManage document integration. It has everything in one place, with a shortcut to the documents. (From the MatterLink matter, view a list of documents in the corresponding workspace and double click to open one. Conversely from iManage workspace in Outlook, open the MatterLink matter with one click, or view a summary of matter information in the Outlook task pane.) MatterLink is part of the modular BEC CoreRelate Framework, which also includes Docket Enterprise for docketing/legal calendaring, and LegalBar and Assemble-It for document automation. The modules rely on a shared SQL database.

BEC Legal Systems

BEC Legal Systems

BEC Legal Systems develops enterprise software for law firms who use Microsoft Office, providing solutions that automate group calendaring, docketing, and task management in Outlook (BEC Docket Enterprise/Schedule Express); improve document production and formatting in Word (BEC LegalBar and BEC Assemble-It); and provide central matter and contact management in both Word and Outlook (BEC MatterLink.) The solutions share a SQL database but are modular and can be implemented together or separately. Our solutions extend the benefits of matter centricity by consolidating and simplifying access to matter information such as matter calendars, tasks, contacts, and custom fields directly from your iManage workspace or from Microsoft Word and Outlook. We “fill the gaps” between document management, billing, and Microsoft Office. BEC Legal provides clients with customized implementation services to meet specific needs, including on-site evaluations, comprehensive planning, installation and training services, and on-going support.
