With over 600 registrants for the Law Society’s event in Singapore, the ServTouch team were always going to be busy! There were lots of small and oh so important legal firms from across the country represented at the Legal Technology Roadshow, which took place on 27th and 28th March.
Our man at ServTouch, Jason, was engaged with different visitors that Workshare wouldn’t usually have been able to gain an audience with. As our representative, he spent the two days talking about Workshare and the integration with iManage, as well as giving demos of our secure file sharing, document comparison, and metadata cleaning solutions.
The overriding theme from the event, which it’s exciting for us to hear about, is the growing awareness in smaller law firms that they need to be enabled with IT solutions to find competitive advantage.
Why here, why now?
Based on a recent survey taken in the region, only 9% of small to medium sized firms were using technology enabled tools. The key reason for low adoption was found to be cost. So, the government and the Law Society in Singapore created the Legal Technology Roadshow as an initiative to help legal practices adopt new technology.
Thought-leaders; vendors and suppliers had the opportunity to come together and demonstrate the value and return on investment certain solutions can provide the legal industry. These included essential tools, like document collaboration, metadata cleaning and secure file sharing. Basically, the solutions that drive productivity, effectiveness and support legal professionals across the world in being more efficient were on show.
Judging by the feedback, the ServTouch team had a great couple of days and some valuable conversations about moving firms towards being technology-enabled. If you are based in the region and missed the event, please get in touch with us here at Workshare, or give the ServTouch team a call!
