Lawyers & Cloud Computing: It’s Not So Complicated
The Cloud has become a well trusted technology
We’ve seen major moves in the legal industry shifting to cloud technology now more than ever. Why? One of the changes brought on by the pandemic is a significant increase in the numbers of law firms operating remotely. Firms have accelerated a shift towards using cloud technology to help staff work together and deliver client needs to help benefit their businesses.
To name a few, converting to predictable operating costs and the ability to access data anywhere, at any time, and on any device are amongst the top of the list of must haves. In the next few years we predict that the vast majority of law firms will full-heartedly embrace the cloud, and legal survey stats prove that to be accurate.
The ILTA 2020 Technology Survey mentions that one of the noteworthy trends was cloud technology acceptance. Participants were asked how to describe their cloud philosophy and;
21% reported that their firms were mostly in the cloud.
35% shared that their firms philosophy was to transition to the cloud with every software upgrade.
33% shared that their firms were considering cloud software.
Clients want improved collaboration with the firms they work with and the level of collaboration they want, given so much being done virtually now, this is supported best with cloud software for your law firm. Clients want to see more efficient and effective ways to get things done. Many firms have already started to use cloud technology prior to the pandemic with hosted email and document management systems. Both communication and collaboration tools are critical to a law firm’s success, and even more so with remote work.
Work from home has drastically increased and with the flexibility to work remote, this trend may here to stay for a while. Cloud technology allows those in your firm to access mission-critical data and software from anywhere, anytime. Not only is this vital right now, but if/when travel picks back up, having your technology in the cloud will make access for your staff seamless on any device.
The costs of cloud technology provides firms an amazing opportunity to ditch the large upfront software costs, and start utilizing predictable monthly costs. Cloud technology ensures lower costs through higher utilization and scale.
