The last 6 months have seen unprecedented changes in all aspects of our lives. Unquestionably, how and where we work has seen some of the largest differences, especially for those of us in roles that have traditionally been office-based and people-focused. It may well be that in time, our working lives will return to a ‘new normal’, but for now, we are continuing to adapt both how and where we work.
At Legastat we have observed these changes with interest, and alongside ensuring we can maintain our core services for clients whilst keeping staff and customers safe, we too have had to adapt how we operate and the services that we offer. With people working remotely, we have seen an acceleration in the adoption of digital bundles (eBundles) and accessing case documents via cloud-based electronic disclosure platforms. To support this, we have also seen a significant increase in the scanning of documents for clients.
As a provider of both traditional litigation support services – copying, printing, scanning and document coding – Legastat also offers a full electronic disclosure service, utilising the OpenText Axcelerate platform. The provision of these end-to-end services has enabled us to support clients with rapid scanning to digitise case material and hosting on a robust (secure) cloud platform that enables remote access and collaboration, not just as part of the disclosure process. The scale of these services can range from a few Lever Arch files of material digitised and hosted in just a few hours, to entire archives of material supporting an entire department’s new home working policy.
With a track record of providing litigation support services spanning over 65 years we believe that there is no question that paper and the role it plays in the legal industry will continue to be a huge part of all our lives. At the same time, remote, digital working can provide enormous benefits that support remote working and collaboration.
