Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of AXEL Go?

For firms interested in trying the service, or those with light needs, AXEL Go offers a free tier, limited to five secure shares (sending files) and five secure fetches (retrieving files) per month. The free tier is retricted to 10 GB of storage. Among paid options, AXEL Go’s least expensive plan, Starter, costs $1.99/month. However, the Starter plan limits you to 20 secure shares and five secure fetches per month. Starter also lacks end-to-end encryption for data, file tracking, and other good-to-have features. We suggest using Starter only to try out the platform. For $9.99/month, the Professional tier, you get everything except multi-user administration tools and on-premises storage. The administration features require the Team tier ($39.99, which includes 10 users). You must subscribe to the Enterprise tier if you want on-premises storage.

Does AXEL Go integrate with my Law Practice Management Software?

No, the AXEL Go app does not integrate with any LPMS systems. If it did, it would undermine the security of your document management, as AXEL Go’s file storage and sharing methods are likely more secure than any LPMS platform.

Can my law office accept eSignatures through AXEL Go?

No, AXEL Go focuses on document exchange. It is not an eSignature platform and does not integrate with an eSignature platform.

Can my law firm accept ePayments through AXEL Go?

No, AXEL Go focuses on documents. It does not accept ePayments or have any other billing or accounting functions.

Does AXEL Go have Guided Interviews or client-facing forms?

No, AXEL Go focuses on document transmission and retrieval. It is not designed to collect client answers or automate forms.

Is AXEL Go easy for lawyers to use?

A review of the AXEL Go app finds it is as easy as any other popular online document storage platform. The web app user interface is straightforward, and the local file-sharing application is easy to download and get started with.

Can my law firm use our own templates?

AXEL Go does not have template functionality. It’s purpose-built for sending and receiving documents created by other programs.

Does AXEL Go have ready-made templates?

No, AXEL Go focuses on document transmission and retrieval. It is not designed to collect client answers or automate forms.

How difficult is AXEL Go to set-up?

A review of the AXEL Go app finds it is as easy as any other popular online document storage platform. The web app user interface is straightforward, and the local file-sharing application is easy to download and get started with.

Will AXEL Go work on my computer?

Yes. AXEL Go has a web application and downloads for Windows, iOS, Android, and macOS. So, provided your office has access to a modern browser, AXEL Go will work for you, or, more importantly, for your clients.

Who AXEL Go is for

AXEL Go is for small to medium-sized attorneys looking to increase their document security. In particular, it is for offices looking for a secure way to easily get confidential documents from their clients. It is also a great solution for those who often share large discovery packages with opposing attorneys, as AXEL Go has no file size limits.

Attorneys with a small number of clients who have already set up encrypted communications (like PGP encryption) may find this unnecessary. However, the encrypted storage alone may be worth the price of admission.

Alternatively, attorneys seeking a comprehensive document management platform may find AXEL Go and the AXEL Network lacking in a few key collaboration features.
