Simple Storage vs. Advanced Management: Why Managing is More Important than Storing
There is a fundamental difference in cloud-based document management vs. cloud storage of documents. In the 15+ years that we have been in the cloud, we often hear confusion regarding the two popular, yet very contrasting options. When considering what is right for your firm, there are 3 key considerations that need to be made. There are other considerations that can be mentioned that are not listed above for document management, such as metadata profiling, advanced searching options, workspaces, and client extranets, to name a few, but the bottom line is that document storage providers do not provide the level of sophistication that law firms require. A good document management system will have environments for permanent storage that can be tucked away in a secure environment when a document has met its end-of-life, while keeping all management aspects on the front line of current and active documents.

Reducing the Burden of Email Influx: NetDocuments Email
Email is overwhelmingly attached to our business lives as it is one of the primary forms of collaboration in our everyday dealings. The recent issue surrounding email in law firms is how to manage all of them. We recently highlighted ILTA's 2014 technology and purchasing surveys, where email management was listed as one of the most pressing technology issues in law firms today. This is because, in the past, attorneys have struggled to strategically file, manage, search, and access email, mostly due to the lack of technology available to do so. NetDocuments' recent acquisition of Decisiv Email addresses these email management issues head-on through proven technology and development that doesn't complicate the end user experience, but remains advanced enough to intelligently learn habits and workflow to deliver the most robust email management experience available.

Your Clients Expect a Service, Not a Product
Some people like to text, some prefer email, some like a secure portal to log into, and some still prefer frequent face-to-face visits. Understanding the unique needs of your client will determine which technology platform will be most useful and will help the relationship along throughout the course of any given case. This puts an extra responsibility on the backs of the attorney to be in tune with all of the technology resources at his/her disposal. Mitch Jackson relates a story about how he was able to employ a new program for texting on his PC to help him keep connected to clients. Whatever the medium, it is important to adapt and to not be afraid to learn new technology.
