It’s a fact all legal firms and law departments have become accustomed to the staggering volume of documents they have to manage today.

Whether you’re preparing for disclosure, collaborating with associates or filing with the court, every document must be processed accurately, securely, efficiently and cost-effectively.

Some firms try to improve productivity and reduce document costs by application of less expensive resources to administrative tasks, but this only masks the reality that a firm may not be reducing the actual time spent accomplishing critical tasks. The firm may, in fact, be increasing the overall complexity and time spent on a matter. This is frequently the case in the creation and handling of PDF documents, where many firms are paying for software features they never use or not getting all the capability they need, such as easily adding comments, redacting content or extending access to documents to all in-house or virtual staff in full compliance with data governance.

All of this leads to the question: What is the best way to streamline legal document workflows while ensuring the security of the documents your firm or department manages every day?

One answer is document solutions for the legal industry. Consisting of document capture and workflow, cost recovery, mobile and more, legal document solutions can optimise legal workflows, simplify complex tasks and improve the productivity of an increasingly mobile workforce.

For example, Stradley Ronon recently took advantage of a centralised cost recovery and expense management solution to enable them to meet their goals related to improving cost recovery and becoming less reliant on paper. In doing so, Stradley Ronon reduced annual support costs and increased recovery – improvements that strengthened the firm’s bottom line.
