FileMan now integrates with Smokeball

Level up your security and simplify the archiving of all your closed files with FileMan’s integration with Smokeball.

As a legal professional, we’re sure you're well acquainted with the sight of numerous stacked boxes at the back of the office holding all closed files.  

This filing system often proves to be frustrating, inefficient, and time-consuming when attempting to locate a case from several years ago. Now, there is a convenient solution to eliminate the clutter with a few easy clicks.  

We have partnered with FileMan, the leading experts in legal archiving, so you can have all your closed files collected, organised, and stored in state-of-the-art secure facilities via a few easy clicks in Smokeball.  

FileMan has delivered exceptional cost savings to their clients, outlining that on average, they have helped to reduce the operational costs of a small law firm by $42k over seven years.  

We are thrilled to announce the launch of this integration to help our clients level up their security and simplify their archiving.
