Don't Lose Money on Your Technology Investment: What's Your ROI?

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."

There is increased pressure for law firms to adapt to this new mobile environment by making applications accessible outside of the office to keep productivity flowing.  But, since data security is such a huge priority, there is hesitancy to log on to third-party applications for fear of exposing personal or sensitive information.

The American Lawyer's Annual Technology Survey

Some interesting stats and a nice article by Alan Cohen on the topic of data security in this years' technology survey of the Am Law 200 firms. A notable point is that there is no consensus as to which is the #1 security concern for top firm executives. However, the top three security issues for 74 of the top 200 firms are: The rise in security concerns is in part due to the pressure clients are putting on their firms. The pressure is coming in the form of audits, and lengthy questionnaires. "Five years ago, we didn't have security audits," Gary Becker, the CIO at Reed Smith, stated. "We've had over 15 of them this year."
