PHOENIX, AZ – (October 9, 2018) – DocSolid, the leader in enterprise scanning, workflow and paper reduction solutions for the legal market, has announced the launch of the inaugural DocSolid Box Barometer Survey – the first-ever industrywide survey of paper records practices in law firms. DocSolid’s Box Barometer Survey intends to benchmark paper dependency by capturing a simple metric quantifying the total box count sent to offsite storage in relation to the total number of attorneys.
Paper records are costly, inefficient, increase firms’ exposure to risk and inhibit attorney adoption of the document management system (DMS). Despite this, and decades of DMS technology, law firms still depend on paper records because most attorneys still work with paper records.
The DocSolid Box Barometer Survey will, for the first time, quantify this problem by creating a simple industrywide metric – boxes of documents in storage per attorney– allowing the legal industry to accurately understand the usage of paper documents, and the resulting impacts on profitability, efficiency and security. The results of the Box Barometer Survey will help law firms to quantify the problems perpetuated by their paper records. Participating firms will receive be the Survey results first in the 2019 Box Barometer Report.
Open to participation through October 31, 2018 November 30, 2018, The Box Barometer is a simple, 7-question online survey developed to allow law firms to report their document storage usage data in under ten minutes.
