Online document creation, revision and editing can be performed by cloud notebook applications such as Evernote, Google Apps, and Microsoft Office Web Apps. These applications make it possible to create documents that can be shared with, edited by, and collaborated on with users in different locations and on different devices.
Third-party applications are available to pick up where many cloud applications sometimes do not go quite far enough. For instance, cloudHQ will sync all company data between different cloud applications so not only can users share, edit and collaborate on documents and files on different devices but they can also use different cloud applications. It also provides a continuous backup of all data to prevent data loss from accidental deletion or malicious hacking.
There are other cloud applications that are specially designed for use in the law firm. Rocket Matter and Clio are two of the cloud applications that can help lawyers and their staff.
Making the move to the cloud can be beneficial to a company that’s looking to increase its productivity, be more efficient at time-management and product management, but needs to cut back on costs.
