Leading legal software innovator Zylpha (www.zylpha.com) has announced the launch of its new ‘Innovation Awards’. The annual Awards scheme will acknowledge and recognise the legal practices and lawyers that have used Zylpha's document bundling software most extensively and creatively within their practices, often digitally transforming previously manual document management systems.
Commenting on the awards, Miranda Evans, Zylpha’s Marketing Manager says; “Beyond the clear commercial incentive of automating the bundling process, we are constantly impressed by the sheer determination of legal practices to deploy our software, ensuring full court compliance and significantly increasing the speed of their document bundling overall as a result. This was particularly apparent during the pandemic where the "work from home" directives and guidelines tested many operations to the limit. As Zylpha Bundling is easy to introduce, use and secure; it is therefore ideal for remote working across practices of all sizes.
“We decided that it was time to recognise these major advances in legal document management by introducing the annual Zylpha Innovation Awards, celebrating the developments and achievements of law firms and individuals, leading the way in legal document management.”

These are the law firms and lawyers that have derived the greatest benefit from Zylpha; in automating the production of Court compliant legal document bundles. Zylpha’s software streamlines and simplifies the arrangement, formatting and pagination of legal documents, when producing court and other document bundles. By reducing the bundling process from hours to just minutes, legal practices save a considerable amount of time that can then be spent on helping their clients. Zylpha also eliminates many costs such as stationery, photocopying, paper file storage, and courier costs. There is also a major security dividend in using Zylpha’s highly secure communications. As a result, the range is especially useful for companies where practice staff are frequently required to work remotely, as is the case with the current pandemic.
There’s a new entry level new online system, offering free bundling, as the first rung on Zylpha’s extensive range of bundling options. Then there’s Pay As You Go systems through to full Enterprise Solutions for more complex bundling requirements. Zylpha also has connectors to most leading legal systems such as iManage, Peppermint, Visualfiles, and LEAP with more to be unveiled in 2022.
