Announcements/Updates: New Practical Content Solution

  • Wolters Kluwer launched a new Practical Content solution this past fall.  Available through your regular Cheetah subscription, the new toolkit provides an intuitive, easy to use Practical Content Dashboard.  As a single point of access to all practical content, the dashboard connects users to more than 20,000 practical content tools and documents.
  • The Dashboard allows filtering by practice area and practical content type so the user can quickly see everything that is available.  The standard Cheetah search functionality applies to the dashboard, as well as each practical content type.  Users will also find the practical content expanded and standardized.
  • The dashboard features SmartCharts, SmartTasks, Guidebooks, AnswerBooks, Decision Trees, Forms, and Calculators, and Checklists.  See screenshots below.
