What's on Your Legal Tech Wishlist for 2018?
The end of the year is a great time to upgrade your tech around the law office. You may be able to justify big-ticket items, and those big-ticket items are often at their cheapest points between Christmas and New Years when shoppers are making returns left and right, often without receipts.
You know there's a fine line between what you want and what you need. And with the rapid pace with which tech keeps marching on, you might still "need" a few of the following hot tech items for yourself or your practice for the upcoming year.
A Robot to Call Your Own
With all the new AI applications, there's likely some piece of hardware or software that could automate some of the more tedious tasks around the office. Even if you don't have to do the tedious tasks yourself, saving your secretary, admin, or paralegal time equates to saving you money by boosting their productivity.
A Keyboard Made for Lawyers
Are you sick of holding down the ALT key while you desperately try to remember which numbers you need to type in to get the section symbol? Well, get sick no more! With the Citepad, you can have your cake and a key on your keyboard for the always annoying section symbol as well as other legal/litigation shortcuts.
While cybersecurity is absolutely essential for every lawyer and law office, regular security can often be overlooked. With how simple it is to wirelessly hookup WiFi security cameras, there's very little excuse not at least have one watching every entrance to your office.
Since much of a lawyer's life is now spent in front of a computer screen, why not get more screens? And while you're at it, get bigger and better ones too.
Don't Forget a Digital Projector
If you try cases to a jury, a digital projector can really come in handy. It can be best utilized to display documentary evidence and photos, both during witness examinations and during openings and closings.
