    , Manager, Government and Education Solutions

    The definition of synergy is the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations to produce a combined effect that is greater than the sum of their separate effects.

    , National Practice Manager, Legal & Finance

    , National Sales Manager, Legal, All Covered

    “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…)

Technology is an incredible enabler across our development as humans as a whole – opening up new and exciting opportunities across personal and professional playing fields.

    Six Benefits Of Going Paperless

    Cut Paper, Cut Costs

    , Director, Enterprise Content Management

    If there is one thing that every company has in common, it’s paper and trying to keep track of it. Industry aside, construction companies building skyscrapers and medical providers servicing sick patients both deal with paper — and lots of it. The phrase “Going Paperless” doesn’t mean removing every single piece of paper from an organization nor does it mean that employees will become obsolete. It means pinpointing specific areas of the company that are paper-heavy, manually-driven, and time-consuming then finding a smarter way to execute the process.

And, they replace their servers and entire infrastructure behind it every five years. With peripherals like monitors, docking stations, and cables, the list can go on and on. See where I’m going here? It’s no surprise that when you are in the market for IT hardware, you want to find the lowest cost possible.  You talk to multiple vendors. You scour the web for the best price. You talk to your friends and co-workers in hopes of finding an industry insider that can provide the best deals. Everyone does this. But, do you ever notice any costs above and beyond your initial purchase? (more…)
