Umbria File

Securely Manage and Create Legal Indexes

Most file systems and document management systems (DMS) can’t easily build ordered, manual indexes: naming conventions don’t work in the space provided or creating an index requires adding a cascade of letters and numbers to the beginning of file names. Some systems don’t allow teams to effectively route work. Umbria File offers a secure, common-sense ability to manage legal documents.
