How to achieve ROI on technology in law firms

In business, time is money, and spending time travelling or writing up meeting notes is time that could be used more productively. Some law firms have started to use technology such as video conferencing and interactive white boards to reduce the amount of wasted time but investing in such technologies can be expensive and needs to be justifiable. Here are some ways to achieve ROI on technology in law firms, and some tips on the right kind of technology to use.

Reduced travel
It’s often the case that your clients will travel to you, but depending on their location you may also need to travel. Using technology such as video conferencing and interactive white boards means you can speak to your clients, see them and share documents with them in real time without leaving your office. The latest systems don’t even require your clients to have special equipment – server-based platforms such as SMART Bridgit and LifeSize Clearsea let you share your desktop or video over the internet, simply through your clients downloading a small piece of software.

Improved meeting records
In a traditional meeting you’re likely to take a lot of case notes which then need typing up before you can file them away or post them to your client. Using an interactive white board such as a SMART Board you can make notes during the meeting, convert them to text, save them and distribute them via email at the touch of a button, thus eliminating the need for anyone to type them up.

Integration of other materials
Another benefit of using an interactive white board is you can view any other material, such as websites, documents and videos, and then write over the material to create a lasting record. This is ideal for examining legal documents as you can highlight relevant text, add your own annotations and save the entire thing. You can also view videos, for example CCTV, and mark directly on the video any areas of interest.

By using technology such as interactive white boards and video conferencing you can reduce the need for travel, make meetings more effective and produce extensive meeting notes quicker and more easily – all resulting in more time for you to spend on billable work.
