Legal IT

Attorney at a desk

The legal space faces two constant profitability pressures – keep customers happy and keep costs down. Technology plays a key role in handling both, with practice management systems, online research tools, unified communications, private networks, CRM – and much more. Some firms have a technology profile that can justify maintaining a large and expensive internal IT organization. Others, mainly smaller and boutique firms, have only a fraction of that infrastructure. For them, the investment into in-house IT support, and its TCO, can’t always easily be justified. For these smaller and boutique firms, outsourcing to The Office Technology Group for our legal IT services in Milwaukee is an affordable alternative. The Office Technology Group helps law firms and attorneys slash the cost of technical support, from strategy and planning to full outsourced IT management.

Client Relations

Your clients interact with your technologies every day. From phone systems to video conferencing, and from account management to sharing documents. How well your technology supports those interactions drives customer perceptions of your firm.

Performance

Time is valuable: to you and to your clients. Whatever systems you use – case management, research, unified communications and more, inconsistent performance or worse, complete downtime, is can be a big hit to your bottom line.

Mobility

Your people are in meetings or out of the office much of the time. They compensate for that with mobile devices to make decisions and collaborate anytime and anywhere. Those devices have to be connected to your network, identified, inventoried and monitored all the time.

Security

When you become a mobile firm, you open an even wider door to security risks. One hacking event, one lost phone, or one instance of lost client data can (and likely will) batter your reputation. Your technology has to be bulletproof – and guarding against risk is a full time job for experts.

Costs

You face three costs. First is the capital cost of owning and licensing technology. Second is the operational cost of keeping that technology running. And third is the opportunity cost you risk when your technology goes down.
