Perhaps your law firm’s paper consumption is the elephant in the room?
You know it’s there, it’s huge, it costs a fortune, it’s not efficient and it takes effort to manage and control, but it needs to be tackled.
Despite the benefits of embracing a digital workflow system in efficiency, security, compliance and cost, it’s the cultural challenge rather than the technical one that still holds many firms back.
Embracing digital workflow isn’t easy
For a number of reasons:
1.Buy-in from all staff for new ways of working
2.Updating technology IT infrastructure to enable electronic workflow
3.Project radar in IT may have more pressing challenges
4.The perceived reassurance of paper files being less susceptible to security hacks
5.Going digital can increase risk of Data Loss
6.Managing the cultural change throughout the firm
And there’s no going back once you commit, so the pressure to choose the right system and implement it in the right way is significant.
However, as it’s a top 4 overhead for legal firms, the reality is that it simply cannot be ignored – the benefits are too many; the savings too significant and the potential efficiencies and improvement in client facing services is too great.
