Top 100 Legal Firm Embraces Paperlite
A long-established Top 100 legal firm has undertaken a digital mailroom and workflow project with DCS for the purpose of processing case/matter correspondence with increased speed and efficiency.
Like many many legal firms, our new client wanted to minimise the amount of paper being added to case/matter files and thereby reduce the volume and associated cost burden of storing physical documents in offices.
They have piloted a Kofax/MailManager-led postroom automation solution in one department, implementing a procedure whereby incoming case correspondence arriving by post is digitally scanned and validated, and the resulting digital documents subjected to a supervisory check before being worked on by lawyers in Solcase and other case-handling environments.
Early calculations indicate up to 75% less paper being added to case/matter files. Fee-earner time is being saved and better protected for critical fee-earner tasks.
This is a flexible and scalable solution allowing additional duties and departments to be added. This enables a planned rollout of automated workflow to the entire company.
