Imaging Technologies Enable Law Firms to Leverage Four Critical Trends in 2013

BURLINGTON, Mass., January 28, 2013 – Nuance Communications has identified four key trends that will impact how law firms manage and share information in 2013. These trends may pose significant challenges to firms of all sizes that are not prepared or equipped to manage new demands in paper and electronic documents. They also provide opportunities for law offices to enhance their efficiency and compliance capabilities while better serving their customers.

“New technologies, such as cloud and mobile solutions, present great opportunities in productivity gains for law offices. But with these technologies come challenges, including security risks from mobile professionals, potential confidentiality breaches because of lack of IT controls on cloud and mobile services, and spoliation as a result of mishandling electronically stored information,” said Michael Rich, senior vice president and general manager of the Nuance Document Imaging Division. “Nuance expects to see law firms increase investments in solutions that help them to adapt to the fast-changing IT environment in order to protect sensitive data, control document workflows, and better track and manage costs.”
