ALA: A Digital Mailroom Built for Law Firms in the New Normal
A Digital Mailroom Built for Law Firms in the New Normal
As we continue to find ourselves working outside of our usual offices, many law firms are finding that they need a Digital Mailroom, not an ad hoc scan-to-email workaround. That was a mere triage solution at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis. Attorneys and staff working from home require reliable, secure delivery of inbound daily postal and overnight mail arriving at the main office. And they need on-call access to paper records back in the main office file rooms. A productive, secure Digital Mailroom operation is the most practical solution.
A Digital Mailroom also remains essential when the workforce returns to the office. A significant part of the workforce will continue to work from home semi- permanently, and it won’t be viable to hand-deliver paper mail for those in the office while also providing an alternate digital delivery for those at home. Legal mail needs digital delivery, all the time, for everyone.
Law firms are uniquely dependent on inbound paper documents from clients, courts, opposing counsel and research efforts. Some of these paper items mandate a calendared response, or contain sensitive client information or crucial matter content.
