Canon Solution Case Study Improving Legal Workflow Efficiency

Capture1 General Overview
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.

Paperless Environment Facilitates Significant Growth for Leading Insurance and Financial Services Company

Capture1 At Heffernan Insurance Brokers, a paperless environment is the rule rather than the exception. The Walnut Creek, California-based company, which specializes in commercial/private insurance and financial services, is ranked as the nation’s ninth largest privately held property/casualty agency by Insurance Journal magazine.*

Having experienced double-digit growth each year since its founding more than two decades ago, the company recognized the need for a technology infrastructure that could handle their workflows into the future. “Synchronizing the flow of information between our headquarters and seven remote offices became increasingly difficult because of our rapid growth,” said Mr. John Petersen, Chief Information Officer of Heffernan Insurance Brokers. “Our business processes were heavily reliant upon paper-based applications, forms and original documentation. Freeing ourselves from the time-consuming shuffling of paper would enable us to maintain our exceptional customer service levels and growth without a costlier increase in manpower.”

The etfile Electronic Document Management Solution In 2002, Heffernan Insurance Brokers embarked on a journey to transition all offline paper processes to digital documents using their existing proprietary client database application. To bridge their manual and online workflows, they turned to document management and workflow solution provider etfile for help.

The solution makes it remarkably easy for users to scan, label, classify and store paper documents, photos and e-mails, and have them automatically routed to the proper person’s workflow. etfile also includes a robust capability to search, find, verify,
retrieve and share documents once they have been scanned into the system.
