NYAS (National Youth Advocacy Service) began using Document Direct In 2013 and from the outset felt very supported in implementing the system.

We have continued to appreciate the ongoing ability to communicate directly with Document Direct.

Our fee earners say:

“I find Document Direct efficient and accurate.  The benefit of their service is the fast processing of dictation and the ability to have confidence that an urgent document, such as a brief to Counsel, will be made available within an hour of dictation”

“Document Direct’s knowledge of our case management system ensures that dictated documents are saved to the specific case reference with email notification that it is ready to be viewed, which is an extremely efficient way of working and ensuring that only documents needed to be printed are printed”

“I would say that Document Direct are efficient, accurate and have a fast turnaround when requested.  Their ability outside normal office hours is very valuable”

Our secretaries say:

“As a result of fee earners dictating to Document Direct this frees time for secretaries to concentrate on other matters and ensures that the administrative functions within the department are carried out efficiently”

From a management perspective, the benefits of Document Direct have been the added efficiency for the department in terms of workflow and from a financial perspective the cost saving of not having holiday, sickness or other ancillary staff costs.

NYAS are pleased to be working with Document Direct and to recommend them to other legal firms or organisations.
