Law offices are among the busiest workplaces in the nation. They may not always seem like it from the outside, but lawyers frequently handle multiple cases at once, while juggling philanthropy and other projects. It’s easy to lose track of documents when you have hundreds of them kicking around for different cases. However, it’s also important to know where all of these documents are for your clients, especially when you’re getting ready to head into the court room. If your office isn’t using an enterprise content management (ECM) solution, you’re losing time, money, and efficiency.
How ECM Could Benefit Your Legal Office
Save time – First and foremost, an ECM solution will save you time. Paper documents can take a lot of time to go through, especially if you have files upon files of them. With an ECM system like ImageSilo, you have a search tool. Consider how much easier it would be to simply search through the document using technology than it would be to skim a paper document that may be hundreds of pages long. Time is important in court cases and an ECM system can save you a lot of it.
Control case information – You know that it matters who can and can’t see case information. You don’t want papers falling into the wrong hands and you definitely don’t want them going missing. ECM systems allow you to control all of your documents and prove that they haven’t been tampered with between receiving them and taking them to court. The security levels range from low to high and you can use multiple levels to control who can view or edit a document.
Increase efficiency – The extra time that you’ll save will also help you to improve your efficiency. When you’ve got more time to work on a case and better access to the information involved, it’s easy to work efficiently and make sure that you’ve put together the best case possible. You’ll be a better asset to your client and your team if you can easily sift through all of the complicate paperwork to get to the important information.
