On-Premise vs. On-Premises: The Evolution of the English Language (and Legal Technology)
Came across an interesting topic the other day: most of us in technology have given way to the incorrect use of the word "premise" when referring to the traditional software model being installed on-premises – and yes, turns out Word's spellchecker was right all along. So, this has been going on for some time, but little did I know that there are hot and heavy debates taking place on this very topic.
Bridge the Client Gap with Secure Collaboration
What does true collaboration entail? What are the time saving features that allow your firms productivity to flow smoothly? The most valuable piece of your work day that collaboration addresses is your time. True collaboration is an open tunnel of communication between you and your clients that is easily accessible, yet secure and confidential. When these channels are free flowing, time is on your side, and workflow processes increase dramatically. The collaboration and communication between you and your clients is vital to your business, so "back-and-forth" exchanges need to be seamless and accessible.
Security: Are you putting your documents at risk?
Although the ability to assign some access rights is available on shared network drives, it is very basic and does not offer the level of security that your clients require or expect. When everyone has access to all documents, the risk of inadvertent deletion or sharing increases substantially.

Don't Lose Money on Your Technology Investment: What's Your ROI?
You purchased technology for your office some time ago to help improve work processes and make your practice more efficient. But you discover after a year or so that it is not being used effectively, or at all. How can you determine the effectiveness of your new technology investment? The first, and probably most important, aspect of ROI on your technology is to look into the adoption rate across the office to gauge if it's being used, how it's being used, and who are the ones using it. The best bang for your buck is undoubtedly when all users are employing the technology the way it was intended, to complete the most important tasks that the technology was designed to facilitate. Too often, we run across firms who focus so heavily on the deployment and implementation of technology and lose sight of actually taking advantage of the new benefits. According to Dider Bonnet of Harvard Business Review, ". . . true ROI of digital investments is collaboration among actively engaged users, smarter decision making, increased sharing of best practices and, over time, sustained behavior change."
