Most businesses require a well-organized document management system (DMS) for easily creating, tracking and finding what you need as you need it.
For law firms handling complex legal cases and having to manage a heavy load of sensitive documents, an efficient DMS is essential. The burden of remaining compliant with industry regulations is also higher for law firms than most other business types.

Nowadays, the best document management software is cloud-based or installed on-premises, offering a range of features that law firms rely heavily on to manage their documentation: creating, storing, indexing, protecting, and retrieving documents effectively.
Cloud-based systems, in particular, have grown in popularity in recent years because of the reliability, flexibility and cost-effectiveness they deliver.
