Select Legal Systems Limited, authors of leading practice management software for law firms – LAWFUSION – has been empowering law firms to become paperless for over a decade. Working closely with some of the leading law firms in the profession, the LAWFUSION team of software developers launched a module in 2008, now known as the LAWFUSION Post Room. Post Room provides virtual post trays for every user in the firm. Many firms use Post Room to scan in their hard copy post each morning so that it can be distributed quickly and automatically to relevant members of the team via the LAWFUSION case management system.
Joanne Hunter, Head of Marketing for Select Legal Systems said, “Post Room is probably one of our best kept secrets. We’ve been quietly delivering and enhancing it in partnership with our law firm clients for over a decade. In fact there are many paper-saving features within our software designed to empower firms to embrace a paperless or paper-light way of working.”
Hunter added, “When I read about firms like BLM taking the paperless leap in 2019, I realise we were well ahead of our time with Post Room over ten years ago.”
In line with the Government’s £1bn 7-year reform programme to modernise the courts and tribunals system, many law firms are deciding now is the time to make definite steps towards becoming paper-light / paperless themselves. Firms that wish to commit to their environmental responsibility, save time, reduce printing/photocopying costs, save on DX fees, reduce their physical foot-print, lower archiving costs and reduce fire risk are setting deadlines to become paperless.
Select Legal Systems celebrated 25 years last year delivering LAWFUSION to leading law firms. A software system like LAWFUSION is attractive to many because it has been designed by listening closely to what law firms want and its Post Room Module has had 10+ years to bed down and become the reliable paperless option for law firms that it is today.
Amongst the many other paper-saving features within the LAWFUSION suite of legal practice management software are:
– E-Chitty Posting Requests (for client and nominal ledgers)
