[Another in a series of mini-reports on what I saw at the annual LegalTech conference in New York this week.]
TitanFile is a SaaS file-sharing service – in the vein of Dropbox or Box – but designed for lawyers and other professionals and offering a couple of creative twists. Unlike other such services, it is organized not around files and folders, but around people and relationships.
In TitanFile, you organize files by channels. A channel can be whatever you want. In a law firm setting, a channel could be for a practice group, a specific case or deal, or a project. It could also be used as a client portal to share documents with clients.
Add people to the channel, then drag and drop a document to the channel, and it is almost instantly shared with all them. Adding someone is as simple as entering the email address. You see the channels you’ve created or are part of, organized by the most recently used and on down. Each channel appears as a horizontal strip displaying the people who are part of it.
A timeline charts all channel activity, creating an exportable audit trail of every event. When new documents are added to a channel, users receive notification within the application and by email.
TitanFile can be used from any device. The company offers high levels of security, both for data transfers and storage.
The Canada-based developers of TitanFile have won numerous awards for the product. The basic version is free; the professional version with enhanced features is $14.95 per month per user. There is no charge for the people with whom you share documents (such as clients).
