Nationwide Roadshow Featuring DocSolid President Steve Irons Focuses on Best Practice Scanning for Law Firms

PHOENIX – Feb. 23, 2011 – Each day, law firms face a creeping menace that kills efficiency, security and morale – Scanarchy. Known as the unmanaged scanning of paper documents across the organization, Scanarchy is a scanning free-for-all that thrives in the absence of best practices.

DocSolid, together with the International Legal Technology Association (ILTA), today announced a nationwide educational roadshow focused on identifying and defeating Scanarchy. The roadshow begins on Feb. 23 in Phoenix and includes stops in Boston (March 1) and Washington D.C. (March 2.) Subsequent events are coming to Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego and New York City. All legal IT professionals are invited to attend and there is no charge for registration.

“Law firms have a heavy burden managing paper documents,” said DocSolid President Steve Irons. “Increasingly law firms scan to manage their paper digitally, but Scanarchy sets in when the staff adopts different procedures and different scanning devices without a common set of standards for security, productivity and process integrity. With these roadshows, we are introducing practical approaches and technologies to create an enterprise scanning best practice.”

A best practice implementation to capture paper into a law firm’s digital information platform provides work efficiencies, process improvement and reductions in cost. To optimize existing paper capture benefits and minimize associated risk, a law firm must standardize on best practice methods for managing, profiling and scanning paper.

Irons, founder of three successful paper capture providers, will discuss the current state of scanning in most law firms, best practices, and how to turn Scanarchy into successful enterprise capture with a quantifiable return on investment.
