Ken Obel from NextPoint, another company offering a Software as a Service (SaaS) product for the legal industry, wrote a great guest post on The Inspired Solo. He discusses the benefits of using hosted, web-based software from a solo’s perspective and addresses some of the more common concerns. Here’s a snippet:

“The benefits of the best SaaS applications – services that are powerful, scalable, reliable, easy to use and access, and relatively inexpensive – should be apparent to solo practitioners. They, least of all, can afford to spend any significant resources on overhead. Solo practitioners need good, cost-effective tools to level the playing field against their larger adversaries. One of the biggest benefits is that Web-based services enable complete mobility – one is no longer tethered to one’s PC or a local area network.”
