8 Reasons Why Software is Still Stronger than Ever

Last year, I met the managing partner of a law firm who was in the middle of moving to a new practice management system.  The firm had been on the existing software solution for close to two decades, and Jim (as we’ll call him here), was a bit anxious about the change.  When I asked him why, he said that overall they were happy with the software they’d grown to know and master all these years, but “it’s not in the cloud, and everyone says we need to be in the cloud, so we’re changing” (to a web-based system).

Fast forward to last week when Jim and I caught up and he’s now looking to change back.  “The new system is sleek and cool, and it’s nice that it’s in the cloud, but it just doesn’t do some of the things that we need, and even after all the work we put into migration, we’ve decided to switch back.  Can you help us?” he asked me.

Why Law Firms are Moving to the Cloud

Cloud is one of the hot topics in IT and has been for the past few years. Prior to 2010, cloud products were often inferior to their traditional on-premise counterparts. Since then, however, much has changed, including advancements in telecom, mobile devices, and data center technologies.  Combine that with the maturity of cloud providers and products, and now cloud solutions are often positioned as the best option for law firms.

It's Only Getting Worse

Recently, a company called me to discuss concerns about their IT security.  This company, based in the US but doing business with clients and vendors in many parts of the world, has been inundated with phishing emails.  The difference here is that these phishing emails are not just generic ones that pretend to be Microsoft Office 365 or UPS trying to steal passwords, but rather, they are spear phishing.  Spear phishing involves impersonating actual people associated with the company, like executives or vendors, in attempts to steal money or proprietary information.  These schemes are becoming more and more common.

Top 5 Reasons CPA Firms are Moving Their Desktops to the Cloud

Today's world is interconnected and professionals often have a need to never be far from their clients.  This is especially true for CPAs who require constant access to their work, especially during tax season, to best serve their clients. With this increased need for accessibility comes greater security concerns.  One solution that has emerged for CPA firms to address these, and other needs, is cloud. Our cloud solution, Boxtop, eliminates the need for IT infrastructure by utilizing cloud as a virtual desktop.

Software and Cloud: Getting the Best of Both Worlds

When businesses today consider the future of their IT, cloud is always part of the conversation, and rightfully so.  Improvements in technology over the past decade have enabled many functions to be accomplished through a cloud service that previously required servers.

Will Boxtop Save Me Money?

Anytime a business needs to make an IT decision, the primary focus should be value.  Change always has a cost – be it the time to implement or train staff in a new system, the cost of the unknowns in the new system (versus the knowns of the current system), or the actual hard cost in dollars of new technology.  In any case, a business almost always decides to make a change because they are confident that the value delivered by the new system will outweigh its costs and risks, and it will do so by ultimately increasing the company’s productivity and efficiency.  Given all this, we are often presented with a very simple question regarding our Boxtop cloud IT platform, “Will Boxtop save us money?”  While the answer is not universal and often takes some time to get to, it is most often ‘yes.’ Here is how.
