Electronic Document Management Systems (DMS)

Digital files provide quick access and instant backups for a business’s entire collection of records.

Lawyers can access documents from courthouses, offices, or anywhere they have internet access. Emergencies and urgencies come up all the time, especially when it comes to legal matters, having a document at their fingertips can save a lot of time and stress.

Once scanned into DMS a document can be viewed, shared, edited with multiple authorized people at once. You will be able to track every change that is made within the document, and you can revert to the original document if you don’t approve of changes made.

Legal documents have a lot of confidential information on them so going digital will prevent the risk of losing, misplacing, or misfiling any files.

Cloud Storage and Services

Legal offices are constantly growing, increasing the number of clients means increasing the amount of data needing to be added to your server. Cloud storage is flexible, so it will grow in capacity or shrink per your data entry, this way you never worry about reaching a certain limit. Cloud storage and online data backup advantages

Getting Used to the New System

Your legal office may not have employees that are up to date on all the latest technologies. Trainings may need to be offered so everyone learns how to adapt to the new digitized system. The systems are easy to learn and our experts can be a constant resource to answer any bumps in the road you or your employees may come across.

We can promise that once everyone gets the hang of the new digital systems, it’ll be potentially effortless to find documents.

Time to Implement

The organization behind going paperless will take deliberation and discussion amongst the management, i.e.; how you will index or tag files, which documents are worth scanning and which ones you don’t, what to do with the documents after scanning, etc.

Our experts have been in the scanning business for years, so they will have suggestions and advice for you to help you from the beginning stages all the way till the end.


The upfront cost of the scanning service will all depend on the number of documents you are going to need scanned. It might be a costly event, but in the grand scheme of things instead of paying someone hourly to complete their usual job tasks, they’d be scanning, putting the company production rate at risk.
