What is GranDocs?


GranDocs is a suite of Alberta template sets created using HotDocs. Each template set was developed based on input from our clients who wanted to improve their efficiency in document production. The template sets are fully customizable to allow firm specific changes to be applied.

Each of these template sets contains the most commonly used documents within each area of law.

We started developing template sets in 1999 in co-operation with our clients who were eager to share their knowledge of specific areas of law in order to gain the benefit of saving enormous amounts of time in document production.

Today we continue to receive suggestions and input from our clients to make these template sets better and better with each release.

When Courts announce changes to the templates, we work with our users to design the most sensible ways to handle the changes and then deploy updates to the user communities.

“I am very pleased with the overall package. Both the software and support are excellent. The program is very easy to use with minimal training. The templates have a very professional look and are easy to follow. The support from Granville has been great, any issues and feedback that has been brought to their attention has been dealt with promptly. I would highly recommend this program!”

What are the benefits of using GranDocs?


Document assembly templates produce custom, transaction-ready documents from a question-and-answer interview in a fraction of the time it once took, all the while providing machine precision—every pronoun in the correct case, every verb in the correct tense, all the right clauses in all the right places.

In a perfect world users would have time to automate all existing precedents so they could be assembled quickly and without time consuming errors.

In the real world the practice of law often takes up so much time that it's not feasible to also spend time automating templates.

There is a clear benefit found in purchasing template sets which have already been automated with the added bonus of allowing users to make personalized changes to suit a firm's own style of client communication.

Templates offer enormous efficiency if data only needs to be entered once and if those templates automatically apply all the conditional clauses, grammatical details, calculations, proper list punctuation and gender/pluralization issues.

Further efficiencies are gained when data can be stored and re-used on every template.

Organizational efficiency is gained when precedent templates are all stored in one location and prior versions are not used by mistake.

Document production can be faster and more accurate than ever before.
