    Legal Ease: Electronic-Document Management

    Read how electronic-document management helps law firms boost productivity and helps compliance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements in this whitepaper from CDW.
    Read the white paper.


    We understand that legal professionals have unique technology needs. And that a simple suite of office software simply isn’t enough to handle the challenges that today’s law firms face. That’s why our dedicated account managers will work with you to find a solution that’s not only legal specific, but also tailored to the needs of your firm.

    E-Discovery Software

    With more than 90 percent of documents being created electronically, law firms require a new way to handle retrieval and processing techniques. E-discovery software can help your firm accelerate early case assessments and reduce the overall cost, time and risk of e-discovery.

    Litigation Support Software

    The right litigation support software can help you manage your cases better. Designed specifically for the business of law, litigation support software effectively manages and processes the large number of transcripts and documents typical of any case. It also allows you to mark up and analyze testimony in real time, giving you the ability to import, extract and convert files quickly for court presentations. In addition, unique portability features mean you can work where you need to and share information from anywhere.

    Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

    Between court dates, travel, and working remotely, complete mobility has actually become a possibility. It should be no surprise that your lawyers are now carrying several mobile devices. But that also complicates things. And with law firms implementing “bring your own device” (BYOD) policies, another layer of complexity has been added to your IT staff’s already crazy schedule. Not only are lawyers bringing their own devices, they are expecting IT to support and manage multiple devices on multiple platforms with multiple operating systems.

    Mobile Device Management

    MDM provides IT managers with a console through which to manage the security of personal devices on a company’s network. This management includes the ability to remote wipe, enforce passwords and encrypt data. MDM also provides greater visibility into the types of devices attempting to access the network and the ability to allow or block specific applications.
