Thomson Reuters Elite, part of Thomson Reuters Legal, today announced the availability of ProLaw 2016.2, which introduces new updates to help clients improve efficiency and save time across their business whether at the office or on the go. Release highlights include enhancements to the ProLaw Portal, streamlined document management, and ProLaw Mobile compatibility for Android™ devices.

“The improvements of the latest version of ProLaw give clients the power and freedom to work smarter and manage business on the go through stronger integrations with their everyday applications and extended remote accessibility,” said Elisabet Hardy, vice president of Product Management, Elite. “ProLaw 2016.2 gives users greater control over documents, dockets, and matters, so they can better manage pressures coming from multiple directions.”

ProLaw 2016.2 delivers more powerful integration with critical business applications including Microsoft® Excel® and Outlook®. The Excel Meta Data Scrubber tracks and removes hidden meta data from ProLaw documents, while Outlook tasks can be saved directly in ProLaw.

Event notes and matter fields can be easily modified on the fly, and dockets can be added or edited using ProLaw or Westlaw rules. 

Improved document management features make it easier to locate specific emails and remerge documents with their original information. Additionally, the ability to track document numbers also allows users to see if a document has been deleted.
