Warren Wander, Managing Director of LawCloud explains that the technology is now ripe for Cloud adoption, and that there has never been a better time for law firms to review their technologies. Wander says that planning for improved efficiencies and cost savings by embracing Cloud technologies and services is a vital ingredient in todays competitive market place.
“The new ways that this technology can be delivered creates opportunities for lawyers to embrace, such as flexible working, scalability, technology simplification. Headaches that existied with traditional technologies are removed such as performance issues and backup problems. Cloud enables concepts such as the virtual office, where lawyers can team up and work together without being bound to traditional partnership premise & practice.”
