How Can Video Conferencing Increase Collaboration Within Your Law Firm?

Throughout this blog series we have been examining how video conferencing can benefit your law firm. In this blog we will take a closer look at how it can help your firm to increase collaboration, both internally, and externally with third parties, such as clients and other law firms. Having a high quality video conferencing platform deployed throughout your firm will help to increase collaboration and give partners and associates access to face to face meetings from any device, service or location – whatever is convenient for them.

Include flexible workers:

It is an integral part of today’s working world that teams can collaborate easily, regardless of where they are located in the world, thanks to the rise of flexible workers. With video conferencing services deployed throughout your firm, flexible workers can now easily be included in decision making processes and ad hoc meetings, that in the past, they would have missed out on when out of the office. This allows for better communication within your firm and allows your flexible workers to feel like a more integrated part of the organisation where their views and opinions are valid and considered in the same way that workers based in the office are.

Speed up decision making process:

Collaboration also allows the decision making process to be sped up. Traditional methods of communication, such as emails, are no longer efficient enough within today’s environments - people require answers faster than ever before. This is where video conferencing comes in. The ability to speak to your colleagues, as if they were in the room with you allows you to get answers, sign off and get decisions made quicker than ever before.

Work with clients and other law firms with greater ease:

Another area that video conferencing can help your firm with is your third party collaboration. Law firms will regularly have to speak with clients who are sometimes too far away to meet face to face, so having a secure video conferencing solution, which can be relied upon even when discussing protected or sensitive data, is vital to improve collaboration. Alongside this, law firms regularly work together on cases, meaning that the two or more lawyers need to be able to speak on a regular basis and build a relationship. Video conferencing allows for an effective and efficient way to collaborate on a regular basis without the need to be in the same location.
