In the not so distant past, the management of legal documentation of meant managing paper, back in the time when ‘cloud’ meant something white and fluffy that floats in the sky! Thanks to advances in technology, the way in which documents are managed has changed beyond all recognition and increasing numbers of firms are choosing to manage legal contracts, documents, correspondence etc. electronically.
A good document management system offers the capability for law firms to improve customer and increase efficiency whilst maintaining high standards of security and confidentiality. Provided a document management system is simple yet efficient to use, lawyers and legal professionals will be free to concentrate on what they do best.
As is the case with all businesses, law firms come in all shapes and sizes and what works for one, might not be suitable for another. To find out what type of document management system is best for your business, it helps to take a long, hard look at what you do and how you do it. For example, a large law firm covering a broad geographical area and wide range of different types of clients is likely to have a large, mobile team of lawyers working on all sorts of devices. In this case they’d be likely to need a completely secure system, which is designed to be flexible, adaptable and very user-friendly.
