LEAP 365 Offers Practice Management and Document Assembly Everywhere You Go

By Neil J. Squillante | Thursday, September 22, 2016

Today's issue of TL NewsWire covers cloud practice management and document assembly software that runs on Windows PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Android devices (see article below). In addition, you'll find links to the previous 11 TL NewsWire features, including our coverage of proofreading software for contracts, four cloud practice management apps, an ebook law library, an add-on for document management systems, litigation case management software, and much more. Don't miss the next issue.

Staying on top of your practice during idle time such as air travel, waiting in line, etc. obviates the need to spend time catching up when you return to the office. This level of productivity requires software that works on any device.

LEAP 365 … in One Sentence

Released at an event at Yankee Stadium on September 12, 2016, LEAP 365 is law practice management software designed for a multi-device world.

The Killer Feature

LEAP started in Australia and grew to become the practice management leader there after which it launched in the U.K. and U.S. In 2010, LEAP moved to the cloud in a unique manner, combing the speed of a Windows desktop app with the convenience of the cloud for back-end data storage. This eliminated the need to maintain a local server.

The new LEAP 365 recognizes that lawyers now use multiple devices, and that Macs have made inroads in small firms. The new web app brings LEAP 365 to Macs. The Windows app remains available along with the iOS and Android apps for using LEAP 365 on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

During the Yankee Stadium event (which I attended), four LEAP product specialists respectively operated an iPhone, Windows PC, Mac, and iPad, handing off work to each other "seamlessly."

"We challenge ourselves to make the most innovative legal practice management software on the market, so lawyers have the freedom to work when and where they want," LEAP USA CEO Chris Stock told me.

Other Notable Features

LEAP 365 also offers a first — an integration with Microsoft Word Online for document assembly. The LEAP Windows app has long integrated with the Windows version of Word for document assembly. The company worked with Microsoft to bring this functionality to the new web app. LEAP 365 stores the documents you create in the corresponding matter, and enables you to create a time or fee entry. Documents created in Word Online work with all other versions of Word.

LEAP offers complimentary setup of your firm's templates so that you can take full advantage of its document assembly technology. In addition, LEAP 365 offers a growing library of state and federal forms. Along with document assembly, LEAP 365 includes document management with advanced features such as document comparison and versioning.

The web and iPhone apps mirror the functionality of the other LEAP 365 apps but also offer additional functionality. The web app contains a suite of reports for law firm owners. With the iPhone app, you can initiate a call from a client's contact card, automatically track the length of the call, and then dictate additional details to complete the time entry. The iPhone app also has a document scanner, enabling you to scan documents directly into a matter using the iPhone's camera.

What Else Should You Know?

LEAP announced three other key integrations at its event — QuickBooks Online for accounting, Office 365 for email, and RapidPay (powered by LawPay) for credit card processing. LEAP 365 costs $129 per user per month. This includes setup, training, and technical support. It also includes a modern website for your law firm. Learn more about LEAP 365.
