“Lawyers are struggling to work to their full potential because their firms fail to give them the right technology…” This is one of the key findings of research conducted earlier this year by Microsoft and online magazine Legal Week.
Given the breadth of technology available today, the Microsoft-Legal Week research finds that more than 86% of those surveyed said they still used a pen and paper to complete legal work. This statistic is all the more intriguing given that around 83% of those surveyed said embracing new technology would lead to greater productivity.
In 2016, Microsoft released Digital Transformation: The Age of Innocence, Inertia or Innovation?, a 52 page in-depth report which revealed that almost half of UK bosses understood they needed to embrace digital transformation or their company would fail within five years.
One law firm that is leading the way in successfully embracing digital transformation is Shoosmiths. Find out in this case study why they opted to implement BizTalk into their business and why they say it is “a perfect solution” for providing integration for their business.
