Features and Benefits of Cloud Computing for Law Firms

What should your law firm’s cloud computing service feature?

Here are a few of the most important features which any legal cloud computing provider should make available for your law practice:-

- Legal practice management software licences, including licences for cashroom & electronic case filing;

- A secure, robust & scalable hosted server. Thus, there should be no need for you to purchase and maintain an expensive on-premise server;

- Inclusion of Microsoft Office 2010 licences for all users (No need for you to purchase Office licences – i.e. Outlook, Word, and Excel);

- Hosted Microsoft Exchange for all users including shared diaries plus email with Spam filter & virus checked mailboxes;

- Start-up plan, Training, Helpdesk & remote support and software updates; and

- Everything supplied, ideally, at an all-inclusive fixed monthly cost, with no up-front capital expenditure.

What are the benefits your practice should achieve?

- The ability to work flexibly from anywhere (office, home, court, holiday). Just plug in a PC with internet connection and go;

- Peace of mind plan with all backups taken care of & data secured in a Fort-Knox style facility in a UK data centre;

- Absolute security with two-level password authentication and an SSL certificate encrypting all data traffic;

- Ultimate scalability & a high performance solution, with the ability to add more users as your firm grows;

- With no single point of failure on the server, you get a disaster recovery planned solution offering business continuity.
