WEST DE MOINES (IA)/HARDERWIJK (Netherlands) - The US insurance agency GuideOne has chosen to use the software Invantive Composition of the Dutch company Invantive. GuideOne needed to automate their documents to decrease spending time on juridical pleadings.
Guido Leenders of director of Invantive: ‘’GuideOne wanted to reduce spending time with their standard documents and automation was the only solution. They explained to us that the paralegals of GuideOne were spending 4 to 10 minutes preparing standard pleadings. The majority of the standard pleadings contained 7 to 40 variables or data points. The paralegals found themselves typing the same variables over and over again. After installing Invantive Composition is capturing data and creates a ready to review pleading cutting preparation time by 70%.’’
Increasing numbers of pleadings challenge for automating filling templates using SQL
Sam Waters, Vice-President of GuideOne adds: “We’ve learned that the law in the United States is ever evolving and changing - GuideOne expects the number of pleadings to increase and the law to become more complex. Using templates to create pleadings will allow the paralegals of GuideOne to prepare documents more easily, which means less time is needed for preparation - content that may otherwise be unused or discarded, can actually be used then.’’
Help achieve goals
Guido Leenders: “GuideOne was looking for a product that met two main requirements: The automation had to incorporate Microsoft Word and the setup of the template needed to be created by non-IT trained paralegals. Invantive Composition was just what they needed. Based on a Proof of Concept, it soon became clear that it was able to help GuideOne achieve its goal.’’
