cleanDocs Mobile: Read Our Exclusive Report

By Neil J. Squillante | Thursday, March 5, 2015

Today's issue of TL NewsWire covers software that removes metadata from documents you email from your smartphone (see article below), a service that provides your firm with your own branded own app for client communications and referrals, an iOS keyboard for entering text snippets, and a stand for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Don't miss the next issue.

A SAFER MOBILE EMAIL EXPERIENCE

Now that you live in a multi-device world, you should not have to switch to a different device to complete a task. For example, suppose you apply a few final touches to a Word document using Word for iOS. You want to email it to your client but first you need to remove the metadata. Must you wait until you get back to your PC? Not anymore.

cleanDocs Mobile … in One Sentence

Launched recently, DocsCorp's cleanDocs Mobile removes metadata from documents you email from iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone devices.

The Killer Feature

cleanDocs Mobile integrates with your firm's Exchange server to clean email attachments before they get sent. Given this necessary intervention, speed is essential for a good user experience. DocsCorp's CEO Dean Sappey tells us that cleanDocs Mobile "cleans email at blistering speeds to minimize productivity losses and delays."

Most metadata cleaners need to open the authoring application (e.g., Microsoft Word), which can take about 10 seconds. In a large firm, significant bottlenecks can form at the server such that lawyers have no idea when their message will get sent.

By contrast, cleanDocs Mobile uses "Binary Level" and "Multi-Threaded" Processing. Binary level processing eliminates the need to use the authoring application. As an added benefit, you don't need the authoring application installed on your device. Multi-Threaded processing means that cleanDocs Mobile takes full advantage of the multi-core CPUs in today's servers. The end result is that cleanDocs Mobile removes more than 100 metadata types from documents at sub-second speeds.

Other Notable Features

cleanDocs Mobile works hand in hand with cleanDocs Desktop, the latter of which runs on the PCs in your firm. Accordingly, any documents already cleaned by one don't get cleaned by the other, further increasing the speed.

Similarly, cleanDocs Mobile gives you and your colleagues more control than server-based products. DocsCorp refers to this as "contextual cleaning." This means that cleanDocs Mobile enables you to make cleaning decisions and apply your firm's cleaning policies when warranted (e.g., you don't need to clean a document emailed internally to a colleague, or you don't want track changes or comments removed when collaborating with an external party).

Regarding the Exchange integration, cleanDocs Mobile sends messages directly through Outlook rather than through relay servers. This not only ensures that your Sent Mail is identical on all devices, but also minimizes the risk of downtime caused by problematic email messages. Outlook resolves any issues by rerouting such email.

What Else Should You Know?

"cleanDocs Mobile is more than a metadata cleaning tool," Sappey tells us. "It's a unified approach to metadata management that recognizes the need for a more flexible, secure, and user-friendly solution for both desktop and mobile users." Learn more about cleanDocs Mobile.
