The technology we use can help you work faster, making more time for strategic business.

Precedents is a template automation tool.


The template editor drafts questions and answers to determine if the variable text is relevant. The end user answers the questions and Precedents populates the document with the variable text or omits the text according to the answers.


The variable text of a document, such as a letter, contract or memorandum, that may or may not be required in a given context is held in a library of templates.


  • Vastly reduces the time taken to prepare a document compared to manual equivalent.
  • Ensures consistency of output bases on the same requirements.
  • Preparation of first draft documentation can be delegated to more junior staff, releasing senior personnel to focus on more complex work.
