Receive Debtor Documents Securely with DocLink

Your Post-Encryption Solution that Protects PII

As of May 1, 2014, all Chapter 7 Trustee offices must comply with the handbook requirements to encrypt all Chapter 7 data on laptops and portable drives – including debtor documents you receive for 341(a) meetings via email.

DocLink, our Cloud-based solution for 341(a) debtor documents, provides both Trustees and debtor attorneys with a secure, encrypted environment to send and receive sensitive debtor information. When a debtor’s attorney uploads documents into DocLink, you are notified via an email but the actual documents are automatically downloaded into your QuikDocs or Case Documents folder – easy for you to find and eliminating having sensitive attachments in your email.

Did you know DocLink provides users with:

  • Automatic Document EncryptionDocLink  automatically encrypts all debtor documents upon upload.
  • Secure Document Storage. Documents uploaded to our secure servers are stored in an encrypted format providing you with the highest levels of security.
  • Single Location for Debtor Files. DocLink is a cloud-based service that allows debtor attorneys to upload files to a secure single location. This makes sharing files and retrieving documents simple and seamless.
  • A Secure, Single Cloud Based Portal. DocLink is Cloud-based, meaning you have no software to install. You have the ability to securely access all important case data online anywhere at anytime, provided you have an Internet connection.

And, best of all, it’s Free. DocLink’s document management portal is secure and available to CaseLink users – at no cost.
