The latest generation of outlook integration technology, employed by the most reputable case management systems, addresses the problem of "user acceptance" by attorneys and eliminates barriers that typically hinder the sharing and capturing of important data across the company. The current systems are user-friendly and seamless.
They allow lawyers to continue to work in the same environment they spend a significant amount of their time using microsoft outlook.
The past (and sometimes in the present) the developers for these platforms have tried to "push an enormous rock up a mountain" by requiring lawyers to sign up to a completely new interface to be a part of the system. The user's acceptance of the system is not easy when law firms that invest in these systems have found that attorneys are hesitant to adopt new methods that contradict the way in which they are familiar with working.
Legal technology innovators have recognized that there had to be an improved method to manage legal matters, and have been focusing on developing "smart" tools for managing cases that are tightly integrated to and seamlessly integrate with the microsoft office suite.
Through a method of stealth to collect information about cases and matters that is seamlessly adapted to the workflow of attorneys they have managed to adapt their systems to the everyday workflow of today's legal office.
In the end, the sector has seen an increase in the amount of people who use it and an improvement in the effectiveness of legal case management initiatives.
