If you currently use an on-premise solution such as Laserforms or OyezForms as your legal forms software, you may have heard about cloud-based alternatives such as Advanced’s Cloud Forms and how they are a significant upgrade over their in-house alternatives especially when looking at reliability, efficiency and cost.
Right now, it might be tempting to look at other aspects of your business when it comes to investment, but a cloud-based forms software can provide a wealth of benefits to your organisation that could answer other problems around matter progression, compliance, and client and staff satisfaction.
There is also the concern of security and reliability on older systems. Legacy software built on outdated coding can become challenging to use and support over time. This can lead to operational disruptions and an inability to keep up with changes in the market. Upgrading to a more modern and future-proofed solution, such as Cloud Forms, can help mitigate these risks and ensure that your business runs smoothly.
This can also be seen within the software itself, where a cloud-based solution can pull up the correct version of a form every time. An invaluable asset to have when third parties and regulatory bodies are changing their forms and systems with regularity.
There are other risks with legacy software such as incompatibility. As your case management system applications evolve and integrate with new software, you may find that your legacy software is no longer compatible. This can cause significant disruptions and prevent you from taking full advantage of new technology and processes.
Finally, the cost is another factor to consider. While Cloud Forms may have a higher fee, it also offers a more tangible return on investment with its enhanced functionality. Using old software may come at a cost if you are wasting billable hours on non-fee earning tasks or if your software is expensive to maintain on old hardware.
