Protexure Tips: Cloud Computing for Law Firms

April 12, 2013

Cloud technology has exploded into the “next big thing” for businesses and households alike. But what is Cloud Computing exactly? Cloud Computing, at its core, allows you to access information from anywhere, on any authorized device without a physical server. However, with recent software innovations, Cloud Computing capabilities have expanded exponentially in the past two years. Here are some ways Cloud Computing can help your Law Firm:

1. Reduced Overhead due to lower IT costs

Cloud systems are generally less expensive to maintain than a traditional physical database or server. Though there are significant implementation costs, the money saved through low maintenance costs (more often that not) covers the initial investment.

2. Increased accessibility for employees

Cloud Computing can be configured to allow employees to access documents, whether they are in the office or remotely (from home or on the go). Employees can also collaborate easier when not in the same location by contributing to the same document in the Cloud.

3. Larger focus on Legal Services

For a Smaller Firm, this might be the primary reason for upgrading to a Cloud. Many external Cloud Computing Providers offer customizable services in their software such as billable hours and accounting procedure tracking, management services, and payroll systems. Companies such as OfficeTime (www.OfficeTime.net) have been very popular with Law Firms for this reason.

Though Cloud Computing has many benefits, the most frequently cited drawback to implementing a Cloud system has to do with security. If your firm chooses to implement a Cloud Computing infrastructure, make sure to choose a provider that places an emphasis on their security, and, if it is within your budget, make sure they guarantee that your information can be recovered in the case of a disaster. For more on how to choose the right provider, refer to this informational study by GeoTrust: Choosing a Cloud Provider with Confidence.

Protexure Lawyers /// Professional Liability Made Easy

“I found the Protexure representatives to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. They found similar coverage for me for a substantial amount less than I had been paying. I have been pleased with Protexure’s service and would recommend it highly.”

- David M. Lipschutz, Esquire

Receiving a quote from Protexure Lawyers is made super easy by the quick response time of their team. The renewal process is different from what I have ever seen, they offer a mostly filled out application which made the process even easier for me!

- Eric Schwab - Woodbridge, NJ

It was a pleasure working with you, - you gave me the most competitive price, quick turn around and good follow-up.

- Howard S. Kavenow

My account representative was very helpful in assisting me to complete my application. He made me feel like my questions and my business were a priority to him.

- Kim Davis

When faced with a substantial increase from our existing malpractice carrier, we received the name Protexure Lawyers from a referral. On contact, they were not only very prompt in processing our application, but also responded to several coverage questions we had. So far, the service has been excellent.

- Law Office of Shriver, O'Neill & Thompson

Mr. Dixon contacted me many months ago and I told him I renew my policy in September and that it would be helpful to contact me in July or August of this year. He did that; he was very patient with me and assisted me with the application process. He was extremely prompt in replying to my inquiries. I had been with the same company for many years so I was reluctant to leave them. He made the transition quite simple. I am fortunate that he was the salesman who contacted me.

- Robert Lewin

Thanks. You guys got my business because (a) your price was great, and (b) you were responsive and on top of things (a number of insurers surprisingly were not).

- Scott Maxwell

I first came in contact with Ryan on a cold call. Usually I am dismissive of these types of calls, but Ryan was brief and to the point - no hard sell or over promising. In the end, I received a less expensive policy than others I researched. I guess not all cold calls are a bad thing.

- Steve Hunter

Ryan offered to compare my current insurance with what he and his company could offer. I took him up on this, and gave him my pertinent information. I did my own research, and discovered that his quote was lower and the carrier had an A rating. I contacted my existing agent to see if she could match the quote. I had been her customer for a number of years and thought that was fair. She was unable to match Ryan's offer.

- Steve Hunter

I discussed some minor differences in the policies with my account representative, and throughout the process, he was easy to reach and called me back promptly. I value this a great deal. In the end, it was clear to me that I would receive a less expensive policy than I currently have, with the same coverage and excellent customer service.
