survey trendsThe numbers are in, and there’s no question – the legal business world is going digital.

AccuRoute retained ALM to conduct a survey of legal experts – attorneys, records management, and IT professionals – regarding their progress and experience with digitizing records. The specific objectives were to uncover the incidence of digitizing records at law firms, and details on how and where the scanning is accomplished, the disposition of records after they are scanned, the benefits received as a result of implementing a digitization initiative. A few highlights:

53% of legal firms want to digitize records as much as possible. The reasons cited for this included:

  • Archival accessibility for all attorneys. One firm stated, “Digitized records allow work off-site and on the road more easily than paper records.”
  • Digital firms provide better organization and retrieval of records
  • Digital capture of records reduces the risk of document loss
