Information technology for law firms is evolving at a rapid pace. Firms that fail to invest in technologies to protect and advance the practice risk falling behind.
Hoboken, New Jersey (PRWEB) September 18, 2015
A prominent NYC area IT consultant, eMazzanti Technologies, shares advice in a new article for law firms seeking to obtain technology to increase efficiency, data security, client service and effectiveness.
In the article, eMazzanti poses the question, ‘What does it mean to have the best technology available?’ and presents arguments, such as the need for data security and an overall technology strategy, that firms should seek professional guidance to realize the greatest value from technology.
“Information technology for law firms is evolving at a rapid pace,” stated Jennifer Mazzanti, President, eMazzanti Technologies. “Firms that fail to invest in technologies to protect and advance the practice risk falling behind.”
The article begins with this quote from a July 24, 2015, post on the ‘Above the Law’ website.
“There is a good argument that lawyers are ethically obligated to use the best technology available. Smart technology use provides efficiencies that allow lawyers to do the best job possible in a short time. That means more timely service for clients at generally lower fees.”
Below are a few excerpts from the article “What does it mean to have the best technology available?”
“When implementing new technology, law firms have a range of choices, from DIY or the partner’s nephew, all the way up to bringing in a Tier 1 IT consultant. Cost becomes a limiting factor at some point.”
“The practice of law is about delivering value. The stakes are often high, so clients are willing to pay to get the best outcome. The service is not low-priced but the value received makes it worth the cost. Similarly, deciding what constitutes the best technology available should be a matter of identifying the best value from the options available.”
“To determine value, data security must also be factored in. Making sure that critical, sensitive information is secure is reason enough to get more than basic technology services. Due to underinvesting in security technology, law firms with boatloads of high value data, are attractive targets for hackers and online threats like ransomware. One security breach could cost millions in damages or worse, an undesired verdict in a hard fought case.”
“Developing a technology strategy requires expertise that most law firms don’t possess. Hiring a technology consultant can help a firm identify the opportunities to increase efficiency, security, service and effectiveness. Implementing the right technology will provide the greatest value.”
