Delivering Cloud Document Scanning for Legal Offices- Fujitsu & Clio Team Up28 Mar, 2014
Fujitsu, a market leader in document imaging scanners, and Clio, a leading cloud-based practice management solution, have teamed up to offer a wireless scanning solution built into Clio’s award-winning iOS application. Touted as a marked leap forward towards paperless legal offices, the integration offers the ability to scan documents directly to a Clio account via your iPhone from a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 scanner.
By taking advantage of the integration, mobile lawyers on the go can utilize their ScanSnap scanner to scan documents directly to the appropriate matter within Clio, whenever they like, wherever they are. This added productivity feature continues to provide lawyers with greater freedom and flexibility when managing and dealing with virtual documents. The Clio for iPhone app’s integration with ScanSnap also provides a preview feature of the document while allowing an lawyer to easily associate it with an appropriate matter, keeping documents organized and easily accessible.
“Fujitsu’s main objective is to help our customers achieve a more efficient, paperless lifestyle,” said Mike Nelson, General Manager Sales and Marketing PFU Imaging Solutions Europe Ltd, a Fujitsu company. “Collaborating with our valued partners such as Clio to bring new applications for digitizing and managing content to be even more productive across multiple platforms continues to help us meet our objectives.”
“We’re extremely pleased to partner with Fujitsu to offer a quantum leap forward in terms of law office mobility and document management,” said Jack Newton, Clio’s CEO and co-founder. “Using the integration, modern lawyers now have the freedom to manage documents no matter where their work takes them.”
