San Diego, CA, March 07, 2018 – HotDocs, an AbacusNext product and market-leading provider of document automation software, today announced that Australian firm Sparke Helmore has selected HotDocs as its document automation tool.

Lee Hodge, IT Director at Sparke Helmore, and Sonja Swansborough, Director of Know-How, selected HotDocs both for its ability to increase document production efficiency through integration with the firm’s core systems, and for the pathways it opens up to further automation opportunities via HotDocs partnerships with key document review platforms.
