Legal ease with New MFPs


Law firms have to cope with issues that range from
communicating between departments and parties to managing the never-ending flow
of paper making its way in and out of the office.


The Evidence

With areas of practice which include civil litigation,
personal injury, medical malpractice, mortgage foreclosures, estates,
corporations and mediation, many law firms have matters that it needed to


Law firm’s medical malpractice and personal injury
department needs an in-house solution for color photos and graphics. Outsourcing
the work is expensive and time-consuming. In addition, the bankruptcy court
system began requiring all law firms to file paperwork digitally as PDFs. The
rule implemented, documents have to be scanned to a computer, which converted
the file into a PDF, and attached to an email message. Although, with high
workloads and deadlines, this process is not a significant improvement over
paper filing.


The Verdict

Sometimes the answer, however, can be as simple as
implementing new multifunctional systems that have the capability to copy, print
in color, fax, and scan-to-email.


As dealers we can provide simple solutions such as printers
with the ability to scan and send detailed photos in a matter of minutes, print
color images for use in court, and attach an image to its correct document and
file it electronically. A MFP can also be adopted that, with the push of a
button, could quickly create a PDF and email the scanned documents directly to
the federal bankruptcy court.


Now, instead of long distance faxes or courier services,
documents are scanned to email and arrive as attachments almost instantly. The
multifunctional systems scan documents directly into the firm’s existing
document management system for storage. Therfore, they can be scanned from
branch offices, which allows staff throughout the firm to immediately access
documents and assorted files. It's easy to see that we've earned our spot in the
law firm.
