"From my perspective, I can't remember life without Softdocs! I've used it for 17 years, and it really makes precedents a breeze. With Softdocs you only have to enter information once and then it's stored and applied across the whole matter automatically. Saves a lot of manual labour and cuts down on errors too. You can also make smart variables that apply information and even formulas… so the level of customisation is just that much greater, with no extra work. I can't imagine having to create everything from scratch, digging around amongst 3000-odd clauses!"

Generating documents takes far less time – we can complete a statement of claims in five minutes, whereas without Softdocs it could take 45 minutes.
