    Why You Should Implement a Document Management System for Your Law Firm

    By: Kurt Meemken
    June 30, 2014

    The practice of law requires a large amount of documentation. Court documents, business contracts, office memos and archives – all pieces of paper that need to be copied, scanned, printed and filed. This includes everything from small two-page documents to massive, 200+ page contracts. Unfortunately, working with large quantities of documents can be time consuming. Administrative staff may spend hours away from their daily tasks filing, sorting or hunting down the right document. Ultimately, costs add up with all of this time spent physically managing your documents.

    Document Management

    At a certain point, a formal, electronic document management system becomes beneficial. Maybe you reach that point when one of your employees has to spend hours looking for a lost document. Or, maybe it happens when you spend 10 minutes while with a client, awkwardly searching for the right contract. These problems, and many more, can be eliminated with the implementation of a document management system.

    Why Businesses Should Perform a Routine Network Analysis Every Year

    By: Clay Ostlund
    April 23, 2014

    A network is like a car. In order to make sure it keeps running properly, it’s important to constantly be looking for signs of trouble; but, even when there aren't any problems, it is still important to perform routine checkups. You want to keep everything moving at the right speed in order to keep performance levels high. You also want to prevent problems from occurring and be able to address them quickly if they do. Analyzing your network can point out potential problems before they cause any damage or downtime and prevent your users access to the information they need to do their jobs.

    Why We Recommend an Annual Network Analysis as the Minimum

    How often you have your network analyzed will depend on what type of business you have, but we recommend at least once a year. During a network analysis, we examine several things.


    First, we look to see what has changed since your last analysis. Has your business expanded? Is your current network struggling to keep up with the amount of users or data traffic? Have you added any new equipment? Each change is another piece of the puzzle.

    Wireless Devices

    Next, we look to see if any new wireless devices have been added in your area or whether any non-authorized users have access to your network. Significant increases in wireless devices or usage can impact your networks performance.


    Every business has confidential information – some more than others – but all businesses want to be protected from cybercrime. We check the security strength of your network and determine whether or not changes need to be implemented.

    Overall Network Performance

    Here we test things like speed and server space allocation to see if there are any recurring problems cropping up. Again, the goal is to catch potential issues before they balloon into problems.
