InfoTrack Invests In LawToolBox To further Enable Growth For The Future.

A few months ago, LawToolBox secured a significant investment from InfoTrack, a well-known investor in the legal space.  The expanded resources will allow LawToolBox to broaden its library of deadline rule-sets, enhance the API and technology through which it delivers content to integration partners, deepen its integration with Microsoft 365, and provide broader services and support to both clients and integration partners. This investment will help us to deliver to our clients and partners an even better and more valuable experience and advance our mission of helping legal professionals streamline their practice and achieve more, which is especially important as the entire country navigates through COVID-19.We’ve started by adding to on an already amazing team.  In just the past month we have added several attorneys to our rule-set management team, and they are already integrated into our system building and maintaining rule-sets.  We are adding key personnel in finance, development, marketing and support so that our foundation for growth is rock solid.  We are hiring a channel manager dedicated to working with our great partners and helping us grow business together in a mutually beneficial direction.  And of course, we are adding amazing sales team members to help legal professionals understand their best options for managing their practice. This investment makes us a stronger, and a better partner for any of our API and integration partners.  We are delivering better and deeper deadline content and we’ll put more resources into our API to make it faster, easier to use, and more robust.  For example, soon we will be able to deliver deadline analytics through our API which will inform end-users... read more

Partners Surface LawToolBox Deadlines Inside their Products through API integration

Many entrepreneurs and organizations have built and are gaining market traction with valuable case management systems to help legal professionals manage files, calendars, notes and business processes. Competing systems have different strengths to pursue law firms of various sizes and practice areas, and they can augment and amplify their product by providing rules-based deadlines to their clients and practices. LawToolBox can fill this gap and provide rules-based deadlines to integration partners who build to the LawToolBox Deadline API. After an introductory meeting, LawToolBox can provide new partners with API credentials, which they can use to explore API functionality and incorporate the LawToolBox deadline system on the inside of their own system. The end-user of the third party system experiences a seamless UI where they can calculate rules-based deadlines and add those deadlines to their calendars without ever leaving the integration partners solution! The LawToolBox API has been designed so that we own all the complexity, and minimize the burden on integrators. Past integrations have been done in as short as one week-long sprint. The basic flow is straight forward: 1. Generate OATH Token. Partners use their credentials to generate an OATH token that they use to communicate to the LawToolBox API (the token will periodically expire so partner needs to implement a flow to refresh the token as necessary). The partner uses this single token to communicate on behalf of every end-user account they activate. 2. Implement Flow to Auto-Regenerate Token if it Expires. We suggest that you implement a flow where if your auth token expires for any reason, it will auto renew. However, please don’t auto generate... read more
