Serve your clients with strategic technology use

Focus strategically on how and what technology you should embrace to serve your clients. The fall is a good time to take stock of your practice and compare how you operate with how you should operate, based on your client's needs.

The role of technology in a lawyer's practice has changed so dramatically in just a few short years it's difficult to keep up with the changes, let alone determine what changes you should make for your clients. One thing is clear technology can't be avoided, but rather must be researched and embraced. If we want to keep up, we can't use risk management concerns or ignorance as reasons to delay up-to-date technology use.

Here are a few questions to get you thinking about technology and serving your clients in your practice:

  • What kinds of technology are my ideal clients using?
  • How would cloud computing benefit my clients?
  • Are my clients using social media to network and market their businesses? If so, should I do more?
  • Where are my clients heading? How else are they using technology?
  • How can I best serve any of my clients who aren't up to date technologically?

What other questions should you be answering to strategically focus your technology use on your clients?
