Ricoh & mindSHIFT Deliver Cloud-Based Solutions to Law Firms
Tuesday, September 6, 2016
Ricoh USA Inc. has announced its lineup to help overburdened law firms and corporate legal departments streamline and standardize their business processes to drive efficiencies and savings.
Information is at the core of law firms' work. Unfortunately, in many firms, collaboration and communication are slowed by outdated tools, workflow and processes. From lack of standardization in processes leaving attorneys constantly redefining specifications, to issues as seemingly simple as inefficient meetings, many firms are missing out on cost savings and efficiency gains. Ricoh's solutions take direct aim at these pain points:
"Law firms, perhaps to an even greater degree than other businesses today, rely heavily on information management, collaboration and communication," said Mark Davey, vice president of legal solutions, Ricoh USA Inc. "For that reason, we've focused our portfolio, including the newly unveiled RICOH eDiscovery On Demand, on making those three necessities simple and efficient by leveraging the capabilities the cloud has to offer. No matter where your meeting is, no matter where you are, no matter when you need information, our portfolio and mindSHIFT's team of legal IT specialists are focused on providing attorneys what they need, when they need it, so they can continue growing their businesses and satisfying their clients' expectations."
- Meeting Room Services from Ricoh provides end-to-end support to help optimize how one of a firm's most important assets — meeting space — is utilized. From how users reserve a room to how they use it once occupied — including communications technologies such as video conferencing, projectors and Interactive Whiteboards to drive an engaging, interactive, informative experience — Meeting Room Services can help drive collaboration to new heights.
- Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) empower attorneys and staff to share critical information swiftly and securely, regardless of geographic location. No matter where an attorney's work takes him (or her), he can stay up to date with access to the same visuals his colleagues are seeing in meetings. RICOH IWBs, which feature solutions ranging from 21.5 to 84.0 inches, can connect to dozens of devices at a time to keep information flowing.
- RICOH eDiscovery On Demand is a newly unveiled user-driven, cloud-hosted e-discovery solution, that helps standardize on best practices for e-discovery throughout an organization. Customizable, easy-to-use forms put powerful industry solutions at users' fingertips for a fraction of the cost, helping put into place efficient, effective and more automated workflows. In addition to making today's huge data volumes easier to handle, RICOH eDiscovery On Demand makes checking job status quick and easy, as opposed to in the past, which often required pulling information from disparate sources. This secured solution leverages the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
- mindSHIFT's team of legal IT specialists support and advise many of the largest law firms in the United States. This team is well equipped to solve the most complex legal IT challenges and projects, including: Microsoft Windows 10 and Office 2016 migrations, security solutions and assessment remediation, developing end-user computing strategies, messaging technology and integration, and IT life-cycle management.
