Technology Strategies For Present and Future Legal Tech Needs

As with any investment, law firms need to work with a winning strategy when choosing technologies. We help law firms develop and implement technology strategies that lead to desirable outcomes both in the present and future.

We help our clients define and implement technology strategies with keen consideration of factors such as budgets, office admin processes, risk management, maintenance, and upgrades. 

Our technology strategy also covers various departments of a practice, from accounting to HR, financing, and CRM. 

We also help ensure that our clients implement technologies that are easy to adopt, with a keen consideration of the tech skill level of staff. 

We’ll help clients determine which technological tasks should be handled in house and which ones to outsource.

Virtual CIO

We provide law firms with a dedicated CIO who’ll see to every aspect of a technology strategy, helping eliminate guesswork, errors and downtimes while promoting productivity, security, and efficiency.

Our dedicated CIOs help clients set and pursue goals and evaluate how well each project aligns with overall company goals and industry-best standards. 

They also advise executives on the pros and cons of each choice they make when acquiring technologies and also recommend the best vendors for each product.

Infrastructure Audits

With our infrastructure audits, we help clients determine how best to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of their technologies, from computers to peripherals like printers, network infrastructures like routers, telecom tools like phones and VoIP phones, office applications, backup tools, and legal-specific software.

We evaluate the health of each hardware and software, interview decision-makers and staffers using each technology, and then create a comprehensive report explaining the current state of affairs and a technological roadmap to a desirable future.

Technology Roadmap

With a technology roadmap, we offer recommendations for how to increase efficiency and minimize the costs of a firm’s technology infrastructure. 

We’ll also recommend ways to enhance the flexibility and scalability of existing technologies in line with the company’s unique individual needs. 

With our comprehensive technology roadmap, clients can avoid acquiring fragmented technologies that may be misfits and rather focus on building ecosystems that ultimately save cost, reduce redundancies, and increase productivity.
