3) Cloud-Based Law Office Management Applications

"Software as a service" (SAAS) is software accessed via the Web (and a Web browser) and resident on a vendor's server, along with the storage of a law firm's/attorney's data.  It is commonly referred to as "cloud-based software."

The emergence of the iPad and iPhone have spurred a move from local law office management software to cloud-based software, that can accessed via any Internet-enabled device.  In turn, software developers have found cloud-based law office management software to be a lucrative endeavor because they can sell cloud-based storage at the same time as they sell you their software, and charge based on the subscription model.  This has led to an explosion of cloud-based law office management software companies.

Some users prefer cloud-based programs, and some really don't care for the concept.  There are some noteworthy advantages and disadvantages to cloud-based law office management programs that an attorney needs to consider:

Advantages of a cloud-based law office management software solution:
• Available anywhere you have internet access
• (Often) available on all computers and all devices, including iPad and iPhone
• Automatic synchronization of data between all computers and devices
• Automatic software updates

Disadvantages of a cloud-based law office management software solution:
• Subscription payments (you are paying for the program in perpetuity)
• Your confidential client data resides on someone else's server (which is a security concern).  Does this violate local ethics rules? (NOTE)
• Whenever and where ever you have no internet access, you have no access to your law office management app and data
• If the company disappears overnight, do you lose all of your data, as well as your law office management application?

(NOTE) (When you use computer resident software and storage, your confidential client data only resides on your computer, and you can be assured of the highest security that you are willing to personally implement.)

Important! many of these vendors of cloud-based law office management software fail to state on their Web site whether or not they are 100% compatible with the Macintosh and/or complementary Macintosh applications, and/or portable devices such as iPhones and iPads.  While it is easily possible to create a cloud-based application that is perfectly platform neutral, some of these companies may choose to be Windows-only or have other dependancies.  Therefore, before subscribing to any of the following services, it is imperative that you inquire as to Macintosh compatibility.

★  These applications/services have been popular with Macintosh users and might be worth extra consideration. Note that this is not a review site.  Products without this mark are likely to still be excellent, and any one of them might be the perfect choice for your needs.  Most offer a free demo.  Checking out the free demo of a few likely candidates is probably the best way to choose the right program for you.
