How to formulate innovative app ideas at your law firm
The Law Society’s 2017 report on technological innovation in the legal sector found that three quarters of law firms surveyed believe innovation is critical to stand out from the crowd.
More than 50%, however, said they were likely to wait for others to pioneer new technologies.
If technological innovation is “critical” to exploiting opportunity and beating the competition, why are over half of the world’s top law firms dragging their feet?
In our long history of speaking with law firms, we have found that many departments do not know how to begin nor how to convince senior decision makers and other departments of their ideas. We’ve also seen first hand how hard it is for teams to find the time to come up with ideas and create plans for innovation in the first place.
Top law firms shouldn’t have to wait for someone else to lead the way in technological innovation. So if your firm believes that there is value in technology ventures and specifically in the potential that’s lying in the mobile and cross-device remit, what do you do next?
Knowing where to start in apps can seem daunting, but they’re actually one of the fastest, most cost effective technologies to adopt if you have a clear plan. In as little as 15 minutes, firms can build sophisticated no-code apps for clients or internal communications.
Top law firms using apps currently have an average of 6.4 apps. To find out more, see our 2017 report.
