How are innovative law firms using dawn raid apps and why?

We have learned from our experience working with top legal clients. Our solution has transformed the way internal processes deal with issues like security, GDPR and dawn raids.

Dawn Raid apps are specifically designed to help employees deal with a dawn raid before, during and after it happens. They can be used by in-house legal counsel, risk managers, site managers, operations staff and any other employee who may need to know how to deal with a dawn raid.

This article will cover the key benefits, popular features and top examples from public app stores.

Why create a dawn raid app?

Quick Guidance

Dawn raid apps can provide real time advice via smartphones on how to respond to investigators from the minute they enter your reception. From receptionists to new trainees to in-house counsel, everyone will know immediately what the most important tasks to do are.

Information on what to do is no more than 2 clicks away at any given moment. This can provide comfort internally that no matter where they are or what they are doing, they have guidance at the touch of a button during an emergency.

Law firms that have built their dawn raid apps with Fliplet, have reported improved experiences during a dawn raid from all internal departments.

Protect your company

It can be scary when investigators enter your offices and demand access to your computer systems. Some employees may be unsure as to how the raid effects their clients.

Fliplet’s dawn raid apps can include internal messaging systems to connect everyone within the business. You can add 24/7 emergency helplines and a guide on who to call at every stage of the raid. This includes a post-raid plan for employees to follow.

Make sure your staff know the best course of action in a potentially costly emergency. For example, what do they do if the press ask?

Cover every step with Fliplet’s dawn raid apps and protect your company.

Improve internal processes

Your staff have certain rights during an emergency and it is important they know what those rights are. With apps, you can personalise sections for each employee. They will not only know what to do, they will feel like they are personally taken care of during the dawn raid.

Send push notifications and train new staff by including live feeds with information and training guides on smartphones, tablets and web.

Top law firms are already increasing company loyalty by adopting this new technological tool.
