Description: If document automation is on your project radar, then this webinar for UK members will serve as an excellent primer to get you on the right track.
We'll begin with a back-to-basics look at the topic, addressing what document automation is, the benefits of its adoption, and how to maximise those benefits. We'll then discuss barriers to implementing document automation -- starting with human barriers and how to break down lawyer resistance -- along with new tools to help drive adoption. Finally, we will explore what client delivery looks like and the impact of document automation on aspects such as client self-service and knowledge sharing.
During a concluding Q&A, we'll discuss real-life examples of how document automation has enhanced efficiency, accuracy, and risk management.
