The Legal Community Embraces Working From Home During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Adaptive Solutions would like to extend our best wishes and positive thoughts to our clients, staff and family and friends to remain healthy, safe and productive during this difficult time. As a 20+ year pioneer of the Work From Home virtual workforce methodology, thankfully our team faced no challenges to remain connected, productive and available to our clients. We are also happy to report that 100% of our employees are healthy, safe and working from home to help control the spread of COVID-19.
In speaking with many of our clients, it seems that most of the legal community has made the transition to Work From Home. Some businesses were ready and built-for-this, with professionals working from laptops via direct connections to the cloud. Unfortunately, others continue to rely on legacy remote access systems such as Citrix, VDI and Remote Desktop. The problem with these older methods of remote connectivity is that more often than not, systems were not sized to scale to the entire firm’s workforce and were quickly overloaded. To address this, many of our customers had to dispatch IT professionals to their offices or datacenters to reactively scale-up remote servers to accommodate the additional user volume. Both law firms and corporate legal departments, which are already in the cloud, reported that the transition to Work From Home was instantaneous, with only having to address more ancillary issues such as how to handle large volume printing and scanning for a small number of their staff.
As we continue to battle COVID-19, the team at Adaptive Solutions remains committed to continue our efforts to promote a cloud-first mentality. The adoption of cloud-based systems such as Document Management, Email and Time and Billing will empower our industry to remain connected and productive during these changing times, both now and in the future. Over the coming weeks we hope that our clients and extended legal community families stay healthy and safe as we fight to overcome the COVID-19 crisis. From a business standpoint, Adaptive Solutions is here, working and ready to assist when the time is right for your business to resume normal operations.
Stay healthy and safe!
