As legal professionals continue to work from home, many are juggling their own workload while also having to teach their children as schools are offering virtual learning for the upcoming semesters. In this current climate, we’re seeing a massive societal shift towards remote work as the “new normal”. Now is the optimal time for law firms to both implement a long-term remote work solution for their employees and to embrace a more modern way of operating within today’s legal landscape. It’s important for law firms to use this time and evaluate whether their employees, IT setup, and operation procedures are suited to work from home.
A firm’s capacity to work remotely is inherently linked to what kind of technology it utilizes. Traditionally, firms have in-house servers, personal computers, antiquated phone systems, and more. These setups may seem cost effective at first, but they tie firms down to a fixed location, forcing them to constantly shell out money on hardware upgrades and rental costs. Such configurations also offer little flexibility to employees, especially if they are working from home full-time. On the other hand, eliminating your firm’s traditional setup in favor of the cloud offers numerous, tangible benefits, especially in today’s more streamlined and interconnected world.
Hosting your law firm on the cloud not only empowers your legal and administrative staff to work with complete freedom and flexibility, but it also gives your firm financial freedom by reducing hardware and property rental costs significantly. With the cloud allowing your staff to work on any device, from anywhere, and at any time, they can remain productive and operate efficiently, regardless if they are in the office or working from home.
