HOW WEST KM WORKS

Makes knowledge management easy for lawyers
West km, the system designed for the legal profession, features automated technology so your attorneys aren't required to do anything to add their documents into the system. They can access the system in multiple ways, preview summaries before opening documents, and more.

Extracts the most useful documents
Efficiency begins as we build your West km repository of searchable work product using the powerful WestlawNext profile extraction engine. Proprietary algorithms developed from our partnerships with leading law firms tag documents by firm, court, jurisdiction, document type and title, and extract them from your document management system (DMS) or other document store. So even if your documents are formatted inconsistently or incompletely, you still find what you need. It's "intelligent searching" no DMS or other knowledge management provider offers you – for maximum productivity across your organization.

Keeps documents safe and secure
Your original documents are never touched, nor do they leave the organization. We only work with a copy of your data.

Updates your knowledge management system daily West km updates daily with your new work product so you always search current, thorough information.

Enables easy searching
You can search internal or WestlawNext documents, or both, from an interface that mirrors WestlawNext search functionality.
