LEAP legal software is a productivity solution widely used by growing law firms.
This convenient cloud-based platform combines practice management with a variety of other functions useful in the legal industry. If you use it, you know how powerful this tool is to manage your day-to-day work.
On top of that, you can do even more with LEAP software integration.
Best LEAP integrations
Here we explore the best LEAP integrations for growing law firms. They cover a wide array of administrative functions that can be thorns in the side for firms with limited resources.
In addition, all but one of these integrations is exclusive to the LEAP community, which means users should take advantage of the benefits offered in the LEAP marketplace.
The LEAP integration with InfoTrack helps you automate court filings, order convenient process serves, and expense all the related costs to the appropriate matter. InfoTrack also assists with electronic signatures, calendaring, and case organization.
These functions help smaller firms with the burdens of manual data entry and mistakes. You can save hours every week by eliminating tedious tasks like downloading and uploading documents, filling out electronic forms, and manually updating matters.
File electronically directly from your LEAP matters. Select the documents you want to submit, check your case information, and automatically track filing fees by matter.
Once the court issues file-stamped copies, they are automatically synced back into LEAP.
The InfoTrack integration also enables nationwide process serving. Firms can populate order information directly from LEAP. The proofs of service and served documents are automatically saved to the LEAP matter as well.
Both filing and service transactions performed with this integration result in the generation of an expense record on the Operating Account in the appropriate LEAP matter. Accordingly, these expenses can be included on the next client invoice while, once again, avoiding the administrative burden and opportunity for error of traditional manual processes.
Payment processing can be an onerous process when done manually, especially for smaller firms with limited resources. The LEAP-RapidPay integration allows firms to efficiently collect online payments while maintaining security and fraud protection.
The integration works by inserting a payment footer on all invoices and statements. Then, your clients can pay online via credit card.
LEAP will generate receipts for payments received, all stored in the correct LEAP matters.
You can also reconcile your bank transactions instantly, saving your firm even more administrative headaches and minimizing room for error.
Legal practices using LEAP can manage and collaborate on legal documents with the LawConnect integration.
This integration increases firm productivity and efficiency by saving enormous amounts of time and effort for attorneys and other legal professionals.
LawConnect enables sharing of documents with clients and colleagues, either from the documents themselves or from the LEAP matters. You can also control who can view or comment on documents. Document access can be given, restricted, or revoked at any time.
Instead of sending multiple emails with large attachments, LawConnect lets you send a link to the document or bundle large attachments in a single email.
The integration also allows the firm to utilize LawConnect as a document management system.
Legal documents are stored in LEAP’s secure servers, housed by Amazon Web Services. Critical documents, such as wills or insurance policies, can be stored securely and in compliance with ABA standards.
#4. Microsoft 365
LEAP also integrates with Microsoft 365 to assist law firms with document automation, email management, and video conferencing. Since Microsoft 365 already provides so many familiar and widely-used tools, these integrations will be welcome to a firm’s attorneys and staff.
Legal document templates can be created in Word, with the ability to choose from an extensive library of standard forms. When a legal template is selected, the data from the LEAP matter — such as party names — are automatically populated into the appropriate fields. When the document is saved, it will automatically be saved to the matter the user is working on, helping prevent misplaced files.
LEAP’s Microsoft 365 integrations also go beyond document automation alone.
The Microsoft Outlook integration allows for email management, with outgoing emails associated with the LEAP matter being worked on.
The Microsoft Teams integration provides the ability to schedule video calls with the click of a button — an important feature in this era of increased remote work.
Managing critical dates and deadlines is a top priority for any practice, especially litigation firms. LEAP and LawToolBox have partnered to create an integration that calculates and automates these dates and deadlines.
Calculation and calendaring in the LawToolBox integration can even be done within Microsoft Outlook for more convenience.
The LawToolBox integration can drastically reduce both human error and the risk of malpractice. In addition to calendaring automation, you can receive automatic updates and notifications on court rule changes.
While management of court dates and legal deadlines is critical, there is also the matter of meetings with clients and prospects. The LawTap integration allows LEAP users to book and schedule these appointments.
Book appointments on behalf of clients with the LawTap Firm Dashboard. You can also offer clients self-service appointment booking, which can be done from your website, email signature, Facebook page, or Google My Business profile.
Once a meeting is scheduled, the integration sends automated appointment reminders via email or text message.
Getting the most out of LEAP with integrations
As law firms increasingly rely on tech tools to get things done, more and more legal tasks will happen in specialized legal software.
Of course, managing a huge list of software tools can be a pain. Don’t waste time entering the same data and uploading the same documents over and over again. Instead, look for integrated solutions that will connect with the other platforms you’re already using.
Good integrations can make LEAP a powerful central hub for your law firm. Check out LEAP’s list of available integrations to see if any of your tools connect.
