iManage, the company dedicated to transforming how professionals work, today announced iManage Drive, a new add-in module for iManage Work that enables professionals to manage documents inside iManage Work as easily as if it’s a hard drive. iManage Drive appears just like a local drive in Windows Explorer and Mac Finder allowing users to drag-and-drop, delete files and perform sophisticated file operations easily and rapidly in a familiar environment.
“We have a broad user base with different styles of working,” Ross Forgione, CIO, Johnson Winter & Slattery. “With iManage Drive, users that might have been hesitant to use a document and email management system can now take advantage of the power and security of iManage through a familiar file system interface. We also have paralegals and other power users who want to perform bulk operations that would find a file system interface more efficient.”
Another key feature of iManage Drive allows users to select projects or matters for off-line access and sync. Files associated with these matters are automatically downloaded and kept synchronized with iManage Work. In this manner, users working off-line or with a poor internet connection always have access to the latest versions of their documents and work product. Data and metadata alike are encrypted at rest and in motion, ensuring protection of sensitive information if a device is lost or stolen.
“Our attorneys work from client sites and courtrooms where internet access may be limited or restricted,” said Barry Steinberg, IT Director, Young Conaway. “With iManage Drive, these attorneys would always have access to their critical work product when or where needed.”
“If a user knows how to use a network drive, they already know how to use iManage Drive,” said Shawn Misquitta, Vice President of Product Management, iManage. “iManage Drive is an important part of our strategy to provide all users with an easy way to access iManage from where they work and how they work. Together with Mac support, enhanced iPad support and web applications, iManage Drive advances our vision of iManage for everyone.”
iManage Drive is currently slated for release in Q4 2018. To learn more, visit iManage Booth #700/702 at ILTACON 2018, the premier educational and networking event for the legal sector. The event takes place August 19 – 23 in National Harbor, Md.
