IT for Law Firms: How Managed IT Services Help Big and Small Law Firms

Cloud computing is now a concept that’s familiar to most lawyers and with that increased familiarity comes trust.

by | Jun 2, 2021 | Law Firm Tips

Technology is probably one of the last things on a lawyer’s mind, but in today’s highly digital world, being tech-savvy and safe is important for the success of your law firm.

Hoping that the one person on your team is really good with computers and will be able to solve any tech issues your team may have isn’t the best IT strategy. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to start using our IT managed services for your law firm;

Lower Operating Costs

Small and large firms have to keep a close eye on their budgets. The cost to employ in-house IT support can easily surpass $100,000 annually. Unfortunately, the support staff is not available 24/7 and is unlikely to possess the depth of knowledge necessary to support the many different technologies. Rekall’s Legal IT Services gives law firms big and small, round-the-clock access to an entire team of certified IT experts for a quarter of the cost of internal IT staff.

Maximized Productivity

They say time is money and that’s especially true for lawyers and attorneys alike. Whether it’s a forgotten password, server failure, or an app that’s not responding as it should, they simply can’t afford to experience significant downtime. System breakdowns can be particularly costly, in terms of lost productivity and business disruption. Issues like this are no problem for our Rekall Team. We understand how crucial it is for minimizing downtime and maintaining business continuity. Updating and modernizing a practice’s IT infrastructure can help maximize billing hours by reducing the risk of underperforming applications.

Compliance

The protocols required for law firms to stay compliant can be quite complicated. Legal practices that handle credit cards must comply with PCI-DSS security standards. Attorneys dealing with clients’ medical records are subject to stringent HIPAA regulations. Failure to comply can result in fines and penalties for the law firms, as well as an increased likelihood of data breach. Rekall’s legal IT management agencies will keep you updated on the latest regulations and compliance laws, so there’s NEVER any issues.

24/7 Support

In bigger law firms, an in-house IT team may be tasked with monitoring environments for threats, handling day-to-day technical operations, and working on achieving the practice’s strategic IT goals. If any of these is overlooked, the firm could end up compromising on security, productivity, or growth.

Small-to-medium-sized law firms often cannot afford to employ round-the-clock IT staff, nor do they have the budget to invest in the fancy hardware and software necessary to manage dedicated cyberattacks. In either case, it makes sense to enlist the services of a reputable IT services provider. We also offer 24/7/365 help desk support for any law firm clients, an added value for an industry in which extended downtime equals lost revenue.

By partnering using a reputable managed services provider, like Rekall Tech’s Legal IT Services, law firms big and small can entrust the day-to-day management of their IT infrastructure to a team of highly skilled IT professionals who specialize in working with legal organizations. This frees up attorneys and other staff to focus on the business of practicing law, without having to worry about their network failing them.
