LexisNexis Canada Launches Quicklaw for Microsoft Office

Leading-edge technology seamlessly integrates Quicklaw content and the open web within Microsoft Office applications

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- LexisNexis® Canada (www.lexisnexis.ca), a leading provider of content and technology solutions, announced today the launch of Quicklaw® for Microsoft® Office in Canada. This innovative product enables legal professionals to access content and services from the LexisNexis® Quicklaw® online legal research service and the open web while operating directly within Microsoft Office applications, including Microsoft® Outlook and Microsoft® Word. Quicklaw for Microsoft Office provides clear time efficiencies and gives legal practitioners confidence they are getting the relevant information they need.

"Quicklaw for Microsoft Office is a leading example of how technology is changing the practice of law," said Pamela Thompson, Director, Product Development, at LexisNexis Canada. "A powerful, one-of-a-kind productivity tool such as this is not a nice to have; it is an essential for a profession that is being asked to work as efficiently, effectively, and with as much confidence as possible every single day."

Quicklaw for Microsoft Office is part of the innovative Lexis® for Microsoft® Office suite of products, which were developed in conjunction with Microsoft, and was shaped by input from hundreds of customers and other legal professionals. Users can now streamline work by accessing the Quicklaw services they already rely on directly from their day-to-day desktop applications. This creates the potential for stronger client retention through more competitive billing, better margins and cost management, and an opportunity for business growth with increased productivity. Quicklaw, one of the world's first online legal research services, has become an industry standard in Canada, and will be celebrating a remarkable 40 years of innovation in 2013.

Features

Quicklaw for Microsoft Office results appear in a convenient, side-by-side panel within a user's Microsoft Word document or Outlook email message. Key features include:

    leaving a document or email message through text recognition
    capabilities, identifying citations, legal entities and terms of art.

--  Check Cited Docs and Get Cited Docs: Use Get Cited Docs within the
    context of a document and pull citations into a side-by-side pane in a

    found in the document are highlighted. Case content can also be accessed
    and validated simply by clicking the citation.

--  Cases, Forms and Precedents: Access links to relevant cases, forms and
    precedents for topics of interest within Microsoft Word documents.
    During transactional drafting, legal professionals can work with greater

@ThingsExpo Stories
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
