Whitepapers: Tips on Selecting Legal Document Management Software

Collaborating on documents is a huge part of being a lawyer.  Revision after revision is made by a constantly expanding circle of reviewers, all of whom work on their own copies of the document then circulate the file to personal computers, laptops and mobile devices.  In all of that, it's easy to lose track of which changes have been accepted and which iteration of the document constitutes the final version.

Many legal document management software solutions exist that claim to solve this problem.  So many, in fact, that sifting through all the options and selecting the right one for the situation at hand can be a real chore. 
Workshare, a legal information software vendor, has commissioned two whitepapers in cooperation with Mike Osterman of Osterman Research that aim to simplify the process for legal technology decision-makers.

The whitepapers, A Guide to Managing Documents in Today's Law Firms and A Guide to Document Comparison and Security For Corporate Legal, contain tips for picking which features your document management system must have, and list questions to ask of vendors when reviewing their products.
