Our office has been a paperless office for over 11 years. Other than very specific, original documents in our clients’ files, all the documentation that goes through our office is digitized.
Being a paperless office is particularly helpful when handling a Long Term Disability claim, which is document intensive. This system allows us to keep organized what would otherwise be a morass of files, documents, and sticky notes. Indeed, before we were paperless, most of the files filled three (3) or more bankers’ boxes. We find that this system provides many benefits. We are able to organize our clients’ files in far greater detail. It also keeps our office tidier. Quite frankly, this frees us up to stay on top of your file and respond almost immediately. This is because we are better able to keep the issues of our clients’ claims clear.
Our firm is able to quickly and easily search our clients’ files for the documents we need. In the past, if we accidentally misplaced a document, it may have taken hours to track down back when file cabinets lined our halls. We are able to access whatever documentation we are looking for with ease and from anywhere, negating the need to take bulky files around with us. Having a paperless office also creates a secure backup of our files, which is securely encrypted, creating protection from physical damage caused by storms or fire.
This is also important because Courts across the country have begun introducing e-filing systems, and filing online is sometimes mandatory. It is amazing to us when we encounter firms still in the dark ages. We know we will have a clear advantage as our opponent struggles with their “morass of documents.”
This results in tremendous savings to our clients. We have no copying charges. We don’t even have a copier. Eliminating the need for these additional costs to your claim, including the per page photocopying charge and the excessive postage/delivery charges associated with sending a pile of documents.
