Forbes published an article yesterday which analyzed how today’s lawyers are using web-based software. This article contains real world examples of how several attorneys, including me, utilize SaaS programs into their day-to-day law practices. The portions that reference me are listed below:
- Another Mac enthusiast who uses Rocket Matter is J. Benjamin Stevens of Stevens Law Firm, P.A. in Spartanburg, S.C. “If I have to figure out how to use it, that’s a black mark right out of the gate,” he says. “The better products, the ones that really cater to the user experience, don’t want you to waste your time figuring out how to use it. If you have to pull out the manual–well, I don’t have time for that, and most attorneys don’t.”
- Stevens says he has worked with a variety of other law office practice automation products, such as Time Matters from LexisNexis, but he is most satisfied with Rocket Matter. Both he and Hauser raved about having the ability to use an iPhone, iPad or laptop to record how they are spending their time or to look up important information while on the go. Idle time waiting at the courthouse suddenly becomes productive.
- Similarly, Stevens talked about supplementing Rocket Matter with Dropbox, the Internet file sharing, replication and backup service, and Evernote, a note taking and file annotation service.
