General project description

Deepweb

The main idea of the project is to help lawyers storing structured documentation on their clients, track working time and charge accordingly.

Deepweb is a New Zealand-based startup founded to arrange time tracking and workflow management in lawyer agencies. A big amount of manual paper work daily was typical for lawyers and accompanying staff. With the growing clients’ requests, firms recognized the need for automatization excessively.

The application supports uploading documents with metadata, attaching related documents, easy filtering by nested categories, types, authors, clients, etc. It can generate several kinds of reports like most downloaded documents, most valued and much more. It tracks document versioning, calculates value and price of the document per lawyer, archives documents.

Due to a cooperative effort of Aimprosoft and Deepweb, it can save lawyers from the routine of regular time estimation. Now to calculate the cost of single documents or complex legal services became faster and more accurate.
