We’re very honored to be have an article, Online Legal Practice Management Software Predictions for 2009, published in the ABA Law Practice Management Section’s E-Zine, Law Practice Today! We guest-wrote a column, “The Legal Mac”, so a big thanks to the regular author, Ben Stevens, is in order. Here’s a brief excerpt:
For some time now, SaaS has been successfully applied to sales force automation, HR and payroll, project management, and other mission critical businesses. The legal industry, traditionally slow to adopt technology, was ready for this new option for several reasons. For one, new web technologies, commonly labeled Web 2.0, now allow for a desktop-like experience over a web browser. Also, day-to-day exposure to web applications has become a common and accepted practice, whether via Social Media sites like Facebook or through online banking. And, an increasingly mobile workforce is looking for ways to connect from any location, from any type of computer.
