Web-Enabled Document Automation

SmartLegalForms’s libraries of automated legal documents are powered by Rapidocs®, our proprietary document and form automation technology, developed in-house exclusively for this purpose.

Rapidocs® guides the client user through an ‘intelligent’ question-and-answer session which transforms their answers into tailor-made legal documents in real time.  When the online “Questionnaire” is completed by the client and submitted to the firm, a first draft document set is ready for download, review and amendment (if needed) by the firm.  The final document(s) is/are uploaded to the “client space”, ready for instant download.

The underlying technology of Rapidocs® is very sophisticated, but the Q&A process is very simple.  Guidance and advice (help prompts) are provided throughout the interview process so that the vast majority of queries that a user may have are dealt with immediately, within the Questionnaire itself, without recourse to an expert.

With Rapidocs® you get the rare benefits of a highly innovative solution, with the stability of a tried and tested application – it was first developed in 1996. Every month, the system is used by thousands of individuals and has an unequalled track record in the self-help legal document market.
