A good first-person point of view from a practitioner that hits on the top level impact of technology and why law firm management should be interested. A quick disclosure that McDermott is one of our customers but we haven’t worked with the author of this article.
And really this good set of values for evaluating any new technology you are considering.
1. Does it help us get paperless? Can we stop printing?
2. Is it instantaneous or not? Can everyone see the changes immediately?
3. Can I access it from anywhere via the internet and how easily can I access it?
We base our development decisions with these criteria first in mind. If a feature or product compromises any of these values, we’ll opt against it because soon enough, it will be an anachronism. This is where we’re headed.
