Save time. Boost efficiency.
In today’s increasingly fast-paced legal environment, firms across the country continue to push for greater efficiencies across the board, but some attorneys remain stuck in old habits, hesitant to adopt new technology. Many in the legal industry foster a large concern around implementing new technology and workflows, as the new processes might take time away from billable work as the firm adjusts to new operations. However, that concern could be alleviated by the fact that administrative activities, such as transcription and document creation, consume hours each day that could be spent on generating new clients or casework. While all updates in processes should be weighed and measured before implementation, these vital administrative tasks can be automated to help increase time savings and speed up processes.
Law firms are typically hesitant to adopt new technology, primarily because attorneys worry that new technology may diminish our productivity.
However, technology that accelerates productivity and improves efficiency should be a consideration amidst an increasingly competitive marketplace, especially among small and midsize firms. This is a key reason why our firm, McCollum Crowley — a litigation and business support firm with 26 attorneys practicing out of three offices in Minneapolis; Denver; and Rice Lake, Wisconsin — elected to update our document-creation workflow with advanced voice technology.
