If your law firm has a website, you are already light years ahead of your professional peers. But do you have the technology in place to improve your firm’s cash flow, client communications, and overall productivity? Though technoshock is on a precipitous decline, many lawyers still find themselves situated between complacency with their base tech and sheer overwhelm.
The reality is: If you want to practice law in the 21st century, stay competitive, and not lose your license, you can no longer avoid bringing state-of-the-art technology into your office. Don’t have time for that? It’s imperative that you make the time! More than 28 states have now adopted rules requiring technological competence.
So what do you need for a more efficient, tech-competent law firm? The following checklist is a great place to start to set yourself up for a more productive 2019:
- Productivity Software
- PDF Conversion Software
- Document Automation/Document Assembly Software
- Time and Billing/Accounting Software
- Practice Management Software
- E-Discovery Tools
- Digital Dictation
- Virtual Call Service
“Essential” is always a debatable and subjective term, so you will have to do a cost-benefit analysis on the value of your (and your staff’s) time required to do these tech-oriented tasks versus getting the additional technological assistance you may need to accomplish your goals.
