High downtime.

Legal industries often do highly time sensitive work and high levels of downtime result in less revenue and disruption to the daily workings of the firm. When users can’t access critical software it will hender their ability to attack their workload in consequence, costing a hefty sum to the firm. 

Underperforming systems and applications.

If your system and applications underperform or tend to crash often it can drastically interrupt operations. Managed IT services can help reduce this issue so your business can perform at it’s best.  

Availability of IT Support. 

Legal professionals need IT support to quickly remediate issues as they arise, again removing downtime and keeping staff online and operational at all times. 

Poor IT Security. 

Data protection is a must for any company, but law firms in particular hold vast amounts of sensitive data, meaning security is of the upmost importance. Client data and case files need to be kept safe and secure, while being safely accessible from inside the firm. A managed IT service provider can safeguard all your data and monitor and block ongoing threats.  

Choosing your IT managed service provider.  

You should aim to choose a managed service provider with referencability in the legal sector and specific experience of the industry. In order to support them correctly the provider must understand how a law firm functions.  

Technology and Staff.

Consider the aptitude of not only the companies staff but the technologies they deploy. Look for software support expertise, technical certifications, vendor partnerships and industry leading software.
