Innovation is no longer a buzzword in the legal industry. Over recent years, technology has been the catalyst for legal service delivery transformation, replacing labour intensive tasks with automation and value maximising of resources. Considering the speed of technological innovation, and its role in increasing the expectations of today’s modern customer, it is safe to say that automated service delivery is here to stay.
Shifts in traditional legal service delivery models
While the need for high-quality legal advice is undiminished, many of the manual services provided by law firms are quickly becoming extinct to allow for more customer-centric service delivery models.
To keep up with the pace of legal technology innovation and its impact on the industry, law firms should be adopting delivery models that are agile, aligned with the customers they serve, strategically leverage data, fuse technology with human resources to enhance performance, and generate profit from performance and customer satisfaction, not hours billed.
Role of legal technology innovation in forming forward-thinking law firms
Undeniably, technology is one of the foundational elements of customer-centric service delivery models. In order to capitalise on the opportunities emergent in this digital age and ensure that growth and revenue goals are all achieved, law firms must adopt a forward-thinking mindset that acknowledges technology as part of their service offerings.
However, to be effective, legal technology must be conceived, developed and applied with the end user in mind. More specifically, it must help solve the challenges faced by law firms to warrant the capital investment. This means the technology needs to be user-friendly, compatible with existing applications and business processes, and scalable.
