If your computer does not meet these requirements, Wise Owl Legal may function with reduced speed, functionality or not function at all. The Wise Owl Legal cannot provide support unless your computer meets these requirements.
Wise Owl Legal Software requires frequent updates to be applied. Due to this Wise Owl Legal Pty Ltd requires remote access to your server at the administrator level on an ongoing basis. Our routine updates are automated.
Use of our Documents Module and Outlook Helper Module requires Office 2013 or later. This is due to the cloud enabling enhances in Office 2013. If you subscribe to Office 365 you will stay update date permanently.
Wise Owl legal will usually supply a ready to go environment, either in a physical environment shipped to your premises, or a hosted environment stored in our secure Australian data-centre.
