8 Ways Global Content Management Makes It Easy for the Legal Community

With a keen eye on increasing billable hours, law firms of all types and sizes are constantly searching for ways to improve operational efficiency and automate time consuming administrative tasks. A typical law firm processes tens of thousands of physical documents each year including pleadings, motions, contracts, wills, trusts, leases, evidence files, and deposition transcripts. The majority of this information is handled through inefficient, manual processes due to the notion that an electronic and automated system is costly, disruptive to existing workflow processes, and difficult to use.

The requirement is for an easy-to-use yet powerful system that enables lawyers, paralegals, law clerks, business partners, and remote workers to store, access, share, and manage critical electronic and paper-based content across a broad range of functions, departments and locations. In today’s global legal environment, this type of system is quickly becoming a catalyst for achieving optimized business processes.
