Enterprise document automation (formatting, numbering, styles and document ID)

BigHand Create® provides Microsoft Office templates and powerful automation to accelerate the document production process. With accuracy and turnaround time being critical requirements, law firms must produce documents ranging in difficulty from simple memos to complex agreements, as well as disclosure documents and briefs. iCreate provides a fully integrated system of templates that constructs documents with the click of a button.

BigHand Create standardizes the documents produced in a firm, and significantly reduces the amount of non-billable time spent drafting, formatting and reformatting MS Word documents.

My experience with Esquire Innovations has been 100% positive. When our firm decided to transition from an in-house solution to a service provider, there were numerous questions to address before rolling out the software. When we eventually deployed it to our new Windows 7/ Office 2010 desktop, the resources at Esquire were more than willing to listen to our questions, to keep us informed, and to re-educate resources as they were added to the project. Esquire’s staff has been patient and competent, understanding our department’s need to provide a high quality product to clients. The service and support has an intimate, personal feel to it with humans answering the phone at all levels and calling you back within the timeframe they promise. During our iCreate and iScrub deployment, Esquire kept us fully informed at all times and met all deliverables, ensuring that a nicely integrated and functional product was provided to our end users. For rollouts of such a high profile software application, this one has gone very smoothly and has given us a positive ROI.
