Running a law practice is a team effort. Getting things done in the modern bureaucratic world requires ability to collaborate with documents, schedules and tasks. No matter how knowledgeable or competent, nobody can do it all, so the ability to easily collaborate with your partners, associates and clients is crucial for effective management of a law practice today.
With cloud-based Microsoft Office 365, all you have to do is supply the legal know-how. All of the tools you need for real-time collaboration with your team and your clients comes right out of the box with Office 365. You not only get document sharing across all platforms from any device, you also maintain full control of those documents, with state-of-the-art access permissions.
Microsoft Office 365 includes SharePoint Online which comes with all the latest document management bells and whistles, including versioning and co-authoring functions that are particularly useful for modern distributed business models. Importing new documents is a simple three-click process, so uploading new client documents or even bringing new attorneys with large case files into the firm is not a big deal.
Microsoft SharePoint Online
A carefully planned and thoughtfully implemented document management and collaboration system can make you feel like someone just handed you a glass of cold water after a long walk in the desert.
No more lost documents, no more duplicates, no more wondering if this is the latest version. With SharePoint Online and the power of the cloud, the right people can get access to the right documents when they need them wherever they are.
Privacy and data security are a big deal in the legal business, and SharePoint Online is designed from the ground up with security in mind. Microsoft has literally spent billions developing a state of the art security solution for its cloud operations. The fact of the matter is you cannot get the same level of active, multi-level security for your business network no matter how much you spend. Security certifications such as HIPAA, ISO/IEC 27001 and more. For detailed security information review the Microsoft Trust Center.
Full-Bandwidth Collaboration Requires the Right Tools
Bringing together all of the data and documentation you need to file a law suit, give a deposition or prepare for a big trial often requires input from team members in different locations outside the central office, sometimes even in other cities or foreign countries. Making sure that all of your team have access to the data/documents they need in real time can be critical to the success or failure of a case.
A robust, proven collaboration suite like SharePoint Online increases productivity and gives you peace of mind, as you can be certain your geographically distributed team has the tools they need to get the job done.
