  • Confessions About Legal Scanning Tools

    Q&A With An Expert On Why Going Paperless Is No Longer An Option

    , SAFe Agilist, PMI-ACP, PMP,National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    We bided our time, persevered and rode the wave of the paperless office that was unappealing for many law firms; all while gaining those needed muscles that would need to be at the ready to weather the recent pandemic storm. Law firms didn’t have to look far for valued partners who already designed automated workflow solutions capable of pure magic, it seemed. But, there were many law firms who knew that legal scanning tools were the way forward to increase productivity and eliminate many manual processes, all while reducing costs. Suffice to say, going paperless was no longer an option, instead, it’s a reality that is here to stay. We confess that we are happy to not be on the back-burner or at the end of the long list of “nice to haves” or “we still have time.”

    Today, I am excited to share a Q&A I had recently with Catherine Brill, Product Manager at our Solutions Engineering Center, about this topic and how Konica Minolta has been at the forefront of providing legal scanning solutions to the legal industry.

    What’s Here to Stay in Legal

    , SAFe Agilist, PMI-ACP, PMP,National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    COVID-19 catapulted the world into the future almost overnight. Firms that had a “wait and see” attitude when it came to deciding to take the plunge into new innovations in technology or to ensure they were not vulnerable to security breaches, had a rude awakening in store. There is a distinct concept that sums up how firms unknowingly prepared for the pandemic versus those who were considering a future preparedness plan: strategic partnerships. (more…)

    “No pain, no gain.” We’ve all heard that phrase before and somehow has been instilled into our subconscious – that greater results come at the price of hard and even painful work. With new market drivers shaping the legal industry, followed by higher expectations on the delivery of legal services, hard work is not something that will ease up any time soon.  But, that doesn’t mean the challenges, both internal and external, need to make work even harder for you and your firm. So, what are your top pain points, and how can you tackle them? (more…)

    Konica Minolta Business Solutions and its IT services division, All Covered, recently attended two national credit union conferences. The shows were packed with concerned executives and a few of the topics that were top of mind included emerging cybersecurity trends and regulatory and compliance issues. Credit unions today must strategize solutions to these issues in order to remain successful in the market and have more time to focus on the satisfaction of their members. (more…)

    Recognizing The Importance Of The Moment – It’s Here

    , SAFe Agilist, PMI-ACP, PMP,National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    Imagine being on Apollo 8, on December 24, 1968, with the astronauts who became the first humans to circle the moon. The mission was historic but, the famous “Earthrise” photo that resulted, showing Earth rising above the lunar landscape was even more memorable. Up until that point, no human eyes had ever seen our blue marble from such a distance.  The photo has been described by Nature photographer Galen Rowell as, “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.”   Ironically, of all the objectives NASA had set before launch, no one had thought of photographing the Earth from lunar orbit.  They did not predict the importance of that moment, and the photo that would forever change our view of the earth. Nonetheless, the moment was upon them and, they were ready.

    Document Scanning Services Because Time Is Not On Our Side

    , SAFe Agilist, PMI-ACP, PMP,National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    On a recent vacation, I made the time to dig into a book by Karen Kingston entitled, “Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui.” I selected this book, after having witnessed a neighbor’s house almost destroyed by a gas pipe that had been struck. Thankfully, the family members were all safe. The house of course, could be rebuilt. I still felt sadness, though, for the possible loss of photos, letters, documents, children’s drawings on the refrigerator and other priceless and irreplaceable mementos that could have been lost.
