Support for agility


How is software supporting firms to change?




Like so many businesses, law firms are facing an intensely challenging time for the remainder of 2020, and likely beyond. The reality is it remains to be seen how well technology projects and investment from years previous can help them to drive the all-important engines of efficiency, productivity, engagement and service quality in this period of prolonged quarantine and isolation.

Meanwhile, communication and collaboration are clear themes for us in these troubling times – and firms need to have a network of specialist partners and suppliers supporting them who are also in regular contact to support and understand one another. Lessons should be shared. Mindsets, as well as systems, need some integration. That is what the Legal Supplier Alliance – whose members here outline the parts each of them have to play in making a success of the current remote working world – has as its overriding aim.
