Share and Share Alike

Microsoft SharePoint is a popular collaboration and document management tool in law firms. But legal professionals complain that SharePoint is a bit of a beast and not designed specifically for law firms. As a result, a cottage industry of SharePoint add-ons exists that seek to tame the beast by adding legal-friendly features.

Colligo Contributor Pro 4.2 … in One Sentence
Colligo Networks' Colligo Contributor Pro 4.2 for SharePoint enables you to access SharePoint via Outlook, a desktop application, and Windows Explorer.

The Killer Feature
Colligo Contributor Add-In for Outlook enables you to access SharePoint libraries and lists from within Microsoft Outlook. With this add-in, you can share client-related email messages and attachments by clicking the "Send & File" button or by dragging and dropping it into SharePoint document libraries and folders.

Your firm can customize your preferred level of integration by devising Outlook rules to automatically capture email and attachments. You can also customize settings for synchronization and version resolution.

Other Notable Features
In addition to the Colligo Contributor Add-In for Outlook, Colligo Contributor Pro 4.2 also includes Contributor Client and Contributor File Manager.
