In the past, Microsoft Word templates in law firms have relied on VBA code. iManage, the preferred document management system, has designed its interface to work with VBA through all upgrades up to iManage Work 9. However, a major change occurred with the move of iManage Work 10 to the cloud, which meant that VBA-driven templates could no longer interface directly with Work 10. This change has pushed many firms to upgrade their legacy templates. However, upgrading to a new template system is a time-consuming and expensive process that also requires training for the users, which can present a significant barrier.
Despite these challenges, many law firms recognise that they will inevitably have to upgrade to iManage Work10. One of the key benefits is the improved document management and workflow capabilities, which enable law firms to work more efficiently and effectively.
What does the iManage Work10 upgrade mean for document templates?
For many law firms that do not have the funding or the time to implement a major overhaul of their Microsoft Word templates, there is good news, there is an easy solution, and that is to use Brochet’s iManage Work10 VBA integration Plug-in which allows existing VBA templates to continue to ‘talk’ to iManage without a problem. Read more about our plug-in here.
Fieldfisher is a good example of a law firm that successfully implemented Brochet’s Work10 Plug-in. The firm was able to keep the same VBA code, which meant that it could keep the same user experience and avoid the need for training. This was a major advantage for Fieldfisher as it allowed the firm to continue using its VBA code without incurring the cost and time associated with upgrading to a new template system.
The Work10 Plug-in from Brochet is designed specifically for law firms that are using iManage Work10 and that want to continue using their VBA templates. The plug-in allows the two systems to continue to talk to each other. This integration makes it easy for law firms to upgrade to iManage Work10 without sacrificing the benefits of their VBA code.
One of the key benefits of the Work10 Plug-in is that it allows law firms to keep the same user experience. This means that users can continue using their familiar templates and macros, and that they don’t need to be trained to use a new system. This is a significant advantage for law firms, as it reduces the time and cost associated with upgrading to a new template system.
Another benefit of the Work10 Plug-in is that it enables law firms to maintain control over their VBA code. This is important because it means that law firms can continue to customise their templates and macros to meet their specific needs. This customisation is a key factor in helping law firms to work more efficiently and effectively.
