Do content management systems influence the workflow, productivity and operational expenditures at law firms?

Regardless of the size of the law firm, the pressures to maximize profitability are always the sine qua non. Workloads, document management and the ever-evolving expense of doing business contribute to these challenges. Content management systems (CMS) alleviate the redundant inefficiency involved in managing legal agreements, file storage and the dissemination of documents. Below are three functions the CMS system quells:

Organized functionality. Instantaneous retrieval is the underlying advantage of most CMS systems. With the customized CMS enterprise, law firms:

•    Eliminate time loss tracking documents
•    Reduce inefficiency
•    Save operational costs (administrative working hours, the duplication of documents, archival storage)

Streamlined workflow. Rather than expending time, passing documents from various departments and administrators, CMS allows for automatic processing, eliminating the chances of error, counterproductive paper shuffling and operational costs. From the past due notice, signatures, to approvals and denials, workflow multi-tasks several processes.

24-7 Accessibility. Content management systems afford attorneys instant access to client records. Whether it’s from a satellite office, across the globe or at the courthouse, the ability to maintain files on a web-based system eradicates the loss or duplication of case sensitive information. Not to mention, end users can immediately access information, administering necessary tasks: emails remittance, faxes, documents, payroll information, et cetera—anytime, anyplace.
