The customer, a law firm, offers comprehensive legal services to a wide range of clients in the gaming industry throughout North America and worldwide. In a heavily regulated industry like gaming, they knew the best way to learn was by starting from the inside—working with state and local government regulatory authorities that draft gaming legislation, rules, and regulations, and provide gaming counsel services to them. Throughout this case study you’ll see how their workflow went from being manually intensive and time-consuming, to an automated cost-saving process using Canon solutions.
Customer Workflow and Issues
Law firms generate and copy a tremendous amount of paper. Draft documents, complaints, motions, interrogatories, jury instructions, settlement agreements, and appellate briefs are generated on a daily basis. Copying and scanning supporting documentation are also critical components in their document workflows. During the discovery phase of the litigation process, the use of Bates Numbers allows all these documents to be shared by multiple parties, with a guarantee that all involved are using the same document.
The customer had many challenges that affected their document distribution and device management. Their process for distributing documents was very labor intensive which became quite costly. With no document management or archival strategy, the firm was manually filing documents and placing them in cabinets for storage and retrieval. To meet requirements for document sharing, they were hand-labeling documents so that they could be viewed by both internal and external parties—an extremely time-consuming and manual process. When reviewing their document-related processes, it was apparent that better, more automated options needed to be pursued in an effort to achieve greater company effectiveness.
