Lexis® Draft, the latest drafting tool from LexisNexis®, has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner for Product Excellence in The Australian Business Awards 2016.

Recognised for its highly relevant and resonating market offering in the legal sector, LexisNexis also received this award for its commitment to continually improving the support and operations of the product in close partnership with customers. This year's award builds on winning Product Innovation and Best New Product in The Australian Business Awards 2014, reflecting a the progression of a valued and proven software solution.

Lexis Draft is a legal practitioner's tool kit that enables easy review, editing and proofreading activities in seconds. It allows users to review documents, undertake analytical and legal research validation, search LexisNexis and local folder directories and access deeper research libraries, without leaving the document itself.

Research from LexisNexis customers shows that with technology tools like Lexis Draft they are provided more freedom to focus on important tasks (93 per cent) whilst also improving accuracy and reduce risk (91 per cent) in their documents.

Glenn Cooksley, LexisNexis, Head of Drafting Solutions explained that Lexis Draft was initially developed after research showed that increased time and workload pressure was forcing over half of legal practitioners to make tough decisions to skip proof reading and checking activities.

"Our mission is to help customers break free of the mundane and time consuming activities and improve their daily working lives. Software has a perfect role to augment the modern practitioner in that way. Initial feedback proves Lexis Draft really achieves this and frees up time for our customers, which is the most valuable thing we can give them. I would like to congratulate all of the LexisNexis teams involved in creating this innovative solution," Mr Cooksley said.

Lexis Draft was also recently placed on the 2016 SMART 100 Index of Australia's most innovative products for its consumer adoption and commercial success.
