A modern law firm needs reliable, up-to-date legal practice management software which can help them manage everything from electronic health records to electronic claims; spreadsheets just don’t cut it. Keeping all your information in one secure location, rather than having a mess of different tabs, will help you avoid delays and maximize productivity. Below, we outline 3 reasons why you should invest in legal pm software.
Spreadsheets have limits
Spreadsheets can help you organize static data, but once you start adding hundreds of cases, thousands of tasks, and endless deadlines, everything unravels. Proper practice management software allows your law firm to upload and view all your case information from many different sources (e.g. from EMR systems) on one platform, from a computer, or your cell phone.

Collaboration is key
Spreadsheets are limited when it comes to collaboration, and using them to manage multiple cases can cause delays, errors, and reputational damage. Legal practice management systems allow you to send updates automatically to every member of your team and manage patient records simply and easily.
Wasted time is bad for business
A simple spreadsheet can’t contain all case information, and lots of communication or documentation (e.g. appointment scheduling, medical billing, or patients’ schedules) happens in a mess of different, non-compatible software. You can’t keep track of who’s doing what so time is wasted doing duplicate work or waiting for updates. Collating all your information in a proper management system will prevent loss of information, and help you manage your practice in a simple, time-efficient manner.
