Smart print and document management systems are allowing legal firms to exceed client demands and stay competitive.
Traditionally, legal document management has involved cumbersome mountains of paper, case files and supporting records.
The subsequent processes for sorting and editing this documentation have been inefficient and costly.
In a fast moving digital age, firms are now looking beyond incremental digital improvements and are embracing the opportunity for widespread change and innovation.
Smart print and document management solutions are top of the wish lists of forward thinking legal firms – with Paper-Lite processes delivering wide ranging benefits.
To stand out in the age of the client, a ‘digital-first’ model which incorporates managed print services and document management systems will provide clear and far-reaching wins, helping firms become more responsive to client needs, improve productivity, enhance security, support collaboration and improve business resilience.
Typically, firms are unaware of the full scale of their print costs, or the print volumes of departments and individual team members.
A DMC Canotec service delivers business intelligence and transparency on all printing expenses and staff print volumes, as well as complete control of materials usage.
Automated scanning and recognition software allows you to improve efficiency and deliver files easily to the appropriate fee earning teams, with minimal human intervention.
Process volumes of matter-centric documents, forms and statements in seconds, whilst integrating seamlessly into team workflows or directly into case, document or practice management software.
