It is evident that in today’s world integrating technology into your business to improve efficiency is immensely important. Law firms can leverage technology to implement new processes and serve clients more effectively. Implementing technology into your law firm will convert time into money.
Technology is the driving force behind efficiencies in business processes. According to Schwab’s 2010 RIA Benchmarking Study, firms with a proactive view of technology—those that see it as critical to their business strategy—leverage technology more effectively, and therefore achieve significant time and cost savings. With the help of technology, your law firm will become more efficient allowing you to save time, take on more cases and make more money. Actually, what you do with that efficiency and time savings is entirely up to you; here are a few of the many good ideas we’ve heard:
- Coach your son’s t-ball team (like this patient father http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZJfMK7pFOU)
- Take on the pro-bono cases you’ve always wanted to.
- Go to the mountains – whenever you want.
IT systems give you remote access to your company’s electronic network, so you can work from home or when you are out of town on a business trip. This in turn increases productivity which ultimately gives rise to profits: That means better pay and less strenuous working conditions.
