Moving Your Practice Into the Cloud - Benefits, Drawbacks and Ethical Issues
You no longer have to purchase software and servers for your office. Today, you can rent software or server access via the Internet and thereby avoid any up-front costs. This process is often referred to as "moving to the cloud."
Of course, your client data would also be stored on the rented or hosted servers. In this seminar, we'll explain the associated pros, cons, risks and ethical issues of doing this with your practice.
It is definitely possible for lawyers to get off the treadmill of buying new hardware/software, using it until obsolescence, then buying new hardware/software again. This seminar will explain how to get there.
