The lawyer’s role has always been seen as a “traditional” service, which is based on a certain type of relationship, based on the human touch.
The era of the Internet has already begun to question this model, introducing the contact by e-mail, which has often replaced and tweaked what before was done by telephone (communication) or in person (exchange of material), now the cloud computing, professional management tool, still want to redefine more the figure of the lawyer and the law firm.
For a law firm a cloud service is an added value, able to optimize their work, reducing the time and expenses, all clearly affordable.
For example, videoconferencing allows not only to feel, as it happens via telephone, but also to see each other, which is important for a lawyer.
Let’s take a small example of Milan: the lawyer De Santis has to go Monday morning by three customers. The first is at 9 Lotto, the second at 10.30 to Porta Romana and the third at 12.00 at Bicocca.
The lawyer De Santis of the office at 8:30 and arrives from customer to Lot at 9. After half an hour out to go to the second customer in Porta Romana.
Here, too, De Santis must attend all in about half an hour, in order to arrive then at 12 the third customer to Bicocca, where she will stay for another 30 minutes. Finally at 13 back in the studio.
To recap: the lawyer De Santis in a morning in 4 hours and a half managed to do 3 customers, dedicating them in total 1 hour and a half and three hours to go.
By using the video conferencing service YOConference instead the lawyer De Santis could program the three call during the morning, for example:
9:00 Customer first;
9:30 According to the customer;
10:00 Third customer.
In this way, the time used by a lawyer would still 1 hour and a half for the customers, but would be eliminated 3 hours of transport, and consequently also the costs and stress.
At this point it is clear that arises a question mark.
Ok, great service videoconferencing, but it’s safe? And above all, if there is material to share?
The video is extremely secure and sharing materials you can share any type of file, but not all.
We also take here a further example.
The lawyer De Santis printed documentation to bring to the customer first, but there is a change to do.
Long story will have to wait the 13, time at which the fall attorney in the office (not to mention the sending and delivery times).
With videoconferencing instead De Santis, from his computer, you will update the files in real time and save it once changed already sharing it with the client, without loss of time, stress-free.
In addition to video conferencing there are also other services that may be useful to improve the work within a law firm, such as data backup and archiving of e-mail.
The lawyer becomes Cloud!
