Technology an essential pillar
McCaw Lewis wants to be the most IT-savvy law firm in the Waikato, at the leading edge of technology and using it to its fullest capability. The first step with Dynamo6 was to move the firm to Office 365 to offer cloud email and a better, more consistent user experience to over 50 staff. Having cloud email in place before the company moved to a new office meant the transition was smoother for all staff, with access to email remaining available during any server downtime.
On-site servers have been reduced from around eight to just one, which is needed to manage the Infinity Law practice management platform. The new system uses Amazon Web Services, a pay as you go service that frees the firm from paying for new server equipment or licensing fees every year. New wireless equipment and switching hardware for the phones are the only extras needed on-site.
“We now have the right infrastructure in place to change the way we do things. Our new technology helps us be more efficient, creating time to focus on relationships with our customers and improve our business. We’re really excited about the opportunities this will give us.”
