Why an Online Repository is the Best Thing for Your Firm

May 01 2015 | posted by Giles-Parscale

Nowadays, with all the technology and digital tools available to us, there’s just no excuse for using the same old filing system you used two decades ago. The fact of the matter is that there is a much more streamlined, efficient, and cost-effective way to manage your files and records.

It’s called an online repository.

Get rid of your old filing system and go with an online repository!


An online repository allows you to store your case files, evidence, records, documents, receipts, and every other paper work you have on your desk in a convenient online location. No more giant filing cabinets or piled-up boxes in the closet; just simple, easy-to-find documents when and where you need them.

Have you moved your files to an online repository yet? If not, it may be time to consider it. Here’s why:

·  It frees up space in the office – Wouldn’t it be nice to get rid of those bulky filing cabinets, folders, boxes, and drawers? Well, with an online repository, you can. Who knows? It may even free up enough space for you to get that fancy coffee maker you’ve been wanting!

·  It keeps you better organized – No more sifting through years of files and paper work just to find a single document. With an online repository, all it takes is a quick query, and you can have that document in front of you in seconds.

·  It allows you to be mobile – Instead of lugging boxes and folders to and from the courtroom, an online repository allows you to access your documents from virtually anywhere in the world; all you need is a computer. View them at client meetings, pull them out in the courtroom, or use them as a reference during negotiations.

·  It’s a great way to go green – How much paper do you use up by printing every piece of evidence and documentation for every single case? If you’re like most lawyers, it’s probably quite a bit. Think of how much less of an environmental impact you’ll make if you cut out all that paper usage and switch to an online storage method instead.

An online repository can also save your firm money. It cuts down on the supplies you use, and it eliminates the need for expensive cabinets and storage space. Want to migrate to an online repository at your firm? Contact LORR today to get started.
