The technology infrastructure of midsize and large firms has seen dramatic shifts in recent years. The consumerization of IT, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement, and of course the cloud, has revolutionized the way firms practice law and implement technology. The benefit of this shift is that it enables firms like yours to simply do more with less — more productivity, more mobility, more security, more functionality — plus disaster recovery. All of this costs less, requires less hardware, and involves a lot less hassle.

"The current system was piecemeal, in that if you wanted increased search functionality or other features, it meant you had to add those options including an additional server and additional consulting costs," she said.
As a Senior Account Manager here at NetDocuments, I am used to traveling. It seems like every other week I am on a flight to visit a prospect, representing NetDocuments at an event, etc. The last few weeks have been no different, but this time I had the pleasure of representing NetDocuments at the ALA Regions 4, 5 & 6 events. These ALA regional events have become one of my favorite events that NetDocuments sponsors. There are lots of reasons to love these shows, such as the small table top displays (makes shipping/set-up a breeze), the fantastic locations (Disneyland anyone?) and the great leads that we always get. However, it is the ALA members that really make it special. Most of the ALA members that attend these events are office managers, human resource managers, and even a few IT directors. Almost everybody I talked to was incredibly energetic, extremely nice, and very tech savvy. As a vendor, it is so refreshing to talk with someone who understands the value of a document management service and knows how to successfully get it implemented in their firm.

Apparently we're all workaholics. Did you know that according to a recent survey, 80% of people continue working after leaving the office? This is a good thing for the firm, more working people = more things getting done. BUT, since a large portion of this work is accomplished on mobile devices, this introduces two big issues 1.
