First ProLaw iPad App is Now Available through ProLaw and Bellefield Partnership
iDocExplorer Provides Secure Access to ProLaw Documents via iPad
LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2011 – Bellefield Systems, in partnership with ProLaw, is launching its first iPad App for ProLaw at LegalTech New York, today. iDocExplorer, will soon be available for download from the iTunes App store, giving attorneys mobile access to their matters and documents securely and efficiently on their iPad tablet. This is the first of several iPad applications being developed by Bellefield in 2011.
“We are pleased to see ProLaw’s core functionality extended to the iPad through the innovative efforts of our partners at Bellefield,” said Matthew DeVoll, vice president and general manager of ProLaw. “An increasing number of attorneys and other professionals are using these great devices in the workplace. Getting access to matter information in ProLaw from the iPad is a big advantage for many of our customers.”
iDocExplorer seamlessly and securely integrates with the ProLaw document management system (DMS) and delivers data via a wireless connection or the 3G network. Attorneys will be able to access case- or matter-related documents anytime and anywhere, and do so more quickly since they are not using a VPN or Citrix environment, yet still maintaining security and privacy.
“Attorneys will have instant access to their ProLaw matters and all associated documents, emails, and events – directly from their iPad,” said John Kuntz, principal, Bellefield Systems. “The iPad and other tablet devices are becoming popular tools that are more functional than a smartphone, and easier to use than a laptop. We are helping law firms transform these devices into powerful business tools.”
“With so many attorneys now owning iPads, the iDocExplorer now makes this toy a necessary legal tool,” said ProLaw user Rachel M. Dollar, partner at Smith Dollar PC, a premier real estate and financial services law firm in California.
