The legal sector has always been willing to embrace technology and innovation

Appurity Connect and Appurity, the cross-platform mobility specialist, today announces the global launch of Re:Work for Rubus for iOS – a feature-rich email client with iManage integration that enables law firms to increase billable hours and fee earner productivity.

Available on Android for several years and now iOS, Rubus is designed for fee earners and partners that work in a number of different ways – static, remotely or mobile. Within seconds, fee earners and partners have access to email, important documents and assignments – all accessed securely from their smartphones.

With fee earners and partners able to work from anywhere – in the office, from home or on the way to court to meet clients – Rubus is actively reducing downtime and increasing the amount of billable hours per week, per month and per year.

For a law firm charging £200 per hour across 150 fee earners, billing just 30 minutes extra over the course of a 21-day working month delivers an additional billing total of £3,780,000.

The features of Rubus include:

  • Send & file – file correspondence from an enterprise email client
  • File from inbox – highlight multiple emails and file to matter
  • Inbox Access – ability to file on the move even if offline (Android)
  • Task Management – manage and organise tasks in-app
  • iManage Search – search and view key documents, assignments, emails and workspaces
  • Documents – check and make amendments to documents securely
  • Offline Mode – work as usual in offline mode (Android only)

“We’re incredibly excited to announce the global availability of Rubus for iOS. The app has been available on Android for several years with positive feedback from users. We’ve been working closely with a number of leading law firms, listening to their feedback on the iOS product and integrating the features they believe will make a significant difference to the way they operate”

Steve Whiter, Director at Appurity

“The response from law firms once they start to realise the benefits of Rubus has been overwhelmingly positive. Fee earners are working more productively remotely or when they’re on the move, their clients are getting the level of service they expect and firms are billing more hours each month. We believe this is a game-changer for the legal sector.”

Steve Whiter, Director at Appurity

“Our lawyers have reacted positively to Rubus, as it allows them to work more productively remotely or when they’re on the move. Being able to respond quickly to client queries without needing a full desktop is important to us, and Rubus helps us achieve this.”

IT Director, Brodies LLP

About Appurity

Appurity specialises in mobile and application security, delivering comprehensive solutions to legal firms. Mobile security is vital in the legal world where devices and apps pose a major risk. Legal professionals are prime targets for attacks designed to access sensitive information. Therefore, firms must safeguard information in the cloud while providing better access to data.

Appurity’s mobile security solutions harness the power of AI and machine learning. Our consultancy and services enable firms to deliver secure devices, as fee earners and partners adopt a more app centric way of working.

First, we find out exactly what clients want to achieve. Our endpoint security assessments and app assessments help clients to select the right measures to protect their firms. Then we design, implement and support a secure solution to meet all security requirements in the password-less, post-perimeter, cloud-based era.

Our mission is to help mobile workers to use the latest technologies securely, while making them more productive. An important part of what we do is focused on making people’s lives easier, improving work/life balance for legal professionals. Our mobile security solutions can increase a fee earner’s billable hours. For example, Rubus, our iManage app allows users to securely send and file emails when they’re on the move. We also deliver a range of partner solutions including Lookout, Censornet, NetMotion, BlackBerry, and Ivanti (MobileIron).

As a verified Android Enterprise Service Provider and member of the Apple Consultants Network, we provide bespoke end-to-end security solutions and services for legal firms of all sizes.
