Progressive lawyers and solicitor firms have adopted electronic document management for two key reasons.
Firstly, the public has become accustomed to faster service, greater personal attention and chekpoint alerts as the result of digital developments in retail and commerce. Every industry sector and profession is embracing digital records and communication to be efficient. Practice Managers at legal practices are exploring document management to combat suggestions that the legal profession is slow to change.
Secondly, digital docment and communications management makes good business sense. Legal firms face new forms of competition; margins and fees are not as protected as they once were. Operational efficiency is a pre-requesite for success for lawyers and solicitors as much as it is for any other business.
Law firms and solicitors offices have historically been dependent on large volumes of paper, which creates issues around speed of service, access, sharing and retrieving information, as well as storage.
Improved document management helps lawyers and solicitors with legal and regulatory workflow, and with audit-ready, legally admissible electronic document storage.
