Even if firms begin to allow employees to return on a limited basis (with social distancing being one of the critical factors), there still likely will be a need for remote, on-demand legal secretarial and word processing support.  Law firms have discovered that their employees working remotely often are distracted by children or other family members sheltering at home.  This distracts from productivity and requires firms to shift around work that needs to be performed to ensure deadlines are met.  Law firms also are finding that they lack a mechanism to evaluate the productivity of their staff when working remotely.  LawDocsXpress is uniquely positioned to help with both these challenges.  Not only can we manage overflow work when firms need additional help because their staff cannot handle it, we also have productivity tools which that easily could be adapted for use in law firms.  Since LawDocsXpress has been using remote workers for nearly 20 years we have a great deal of data on performance of jobs as well as a tested process to ensure all jobs get completed on time.

I’m happy to speak with anyone about how we could help with overflow work or managing in a remote environment.

WAMS Inc - We are aware many of your firms are still transitioning to working remotely and may still be working remotely as the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. We understand that you need a robust, scalable and secure system to provide your staff with work from home capabilities. Our focus at WAMS is for everyone we know and work with to be able to continue their business from anywhere with as much efficiency as possible. We will provide you with a turn key cloud based system you don’t have to manage, are not installing local applications on, keeping your client’s sensitive data protected and secure, provides unlimited remote help desk support, and gives you the ability to maintain best practices while securely working anywhere and from any device you prefer.  We are offering up to 50% discount off our normal onboarding fee to get you started and help you provide your remote staff with the ability to have a secure cloud desktop to access all the business applications and data your firm uses on a daily basis.

We are also helping clients to organize their offices with Microsoft Teams. Teams not only provides you a safer option for video conferencing, but it is loaded with helpful features to keep projects and tasks managed seamlessly. Rather than being flooded with internal emails, Teams helps you to organize your communications for projects, closings, transactions, and investigations. Instant chats make it easier to respond quickly and manage your task flows effectively. Reach out to Johnny Navarrette at jnavarrette@wamsinc.com to learn more or get started.
