Benefits for your business

Why Arken?

Templates are too inflexible to cover the wide range of clients needs or become complicated to manage over time. Either way, they present a significant potential to create inaccurate documents and introduce unnecessary risk to your business.

With intelligent questionnaires, the most complete Will clauses, legal best practice and document real-time automation, Arken intuitively guides users to produce quality estate planning documents and generates all of the required documents in real-time.

1. Intelligent Questionnaire

The heart of Arken is the online intelligent interview questionnaire that guides you through the process and ensures nothing is missed. Arken automatically drafts documents in real-time as you work – saving you valuable time and producing the correct provisions for your client's unique circumstances.

  • Only exposes relevant questions

    With Arken you’re not just entering information into a form. The questionnaire only exposes questions relevant to your client’s circumstances and wishes.

  • Automatically adjusts questions

    Our technology helps ensure the interviewer asks the right questions so will dynamically change depending on previous answers to reflect your client’s circumstances and wishes.

  • Ensure all questions are asked

    Alerts protect against incomplete questions. These alerts make sure relevant options are presented and information is collected.

2. Automatic Drafting System

  • Real-time automated drafting

    Dual screen functionality allows you to see the document being drafted automatically as you take instructions.

  • Automatic commentary

    An automatic commentary is created at the same time. This is a separate document that provides an easy-to-understand explanation of clauses, guardians’ and executors’ responsibilities, and other key information.

  • Controlled editing

    The controlled editing function lets you modify a document or commentary if needed.

3. Comprehensive Document Pack

Full document packs are produced automatically. These packs include an easy-to-understand document commentary, signing instructions and other relevant documents. All packs can be downloaded as Engrossment, Copy and Draft packs.

Arken Benefits

Arken provides everything you need to deliver the highest quality documents, whether your business is large or small.

Because you’ll be guided through the minimum number of questions appropriate to your client’s circumstances, you’ll complete documents quickly and accurately. Now, you can easily create straightforward to complex Wills with little or no need for editing.

Our clients tell us that 98% of the documents they create require no editing and, for the small proportion that do, changes are managed through the controlled edit function.

  • Finish quickly

    Real-time updating means when you finish completing the information, your document is complete.

  • Be more productive

    Along with automated drafting we've designed Arken Professional so that when you're completing multiple documents, client information is stored so it can be quickly re-used.

  • Reduce your risk

    Arken Professional actively reduces your risks by ensuring that all relevant matters specific to each client and their individual circumstances are covered, all the while producing consistent high quality documents utilising leading industry clauses. Furthermore, because Arken Professional is a subscription service we maintain the clauses.

  • Fits your business

    On demand pricing whether you are starting up, working with high volumes or need an enterprise solution tailored to fit your needs.
