Law firms require seamless transitions when adopting new technologies, especially when it comes to case management software. Efficiency is paramount. To shed light on the best practices in this arena, David Cross, Denovo’s Training & Implementation Consultant, delves deep into the intricacies of implementing legal case management software efficiently.

Training – How It’s Delivered

Q: David, could you walk us through the various training options Denovo offers for implementing its legal case management software?

A: Certainly. At Denovo, we recognise that every law firm is unique, with its own set of challenges and preferences. That’s why we provide a range of training options tailored to suit different needs and circumstances.

Face-to-face training remains a popular choice among our clients. This approach allows us to conduct training sessions directly in the law firm’s office, ensuring minimal disruption / time out of the office and fostering a conducive learning environment. We work closely with our clients to make prior arrangements, ensuring that the training space is equipped with all necessary amenities, such as a large screen for presentations.

For firms seeking a change of scenery, we also offer training sessions at our own offices. Our fully operational training room is equipped with PCs and large screens, providing an immersive learning experience away from the daily distractions of the office environment.

In addition to these in-person options, we understand the growing trend towards remote work. That’s why we offer remote training sessions conducted via platforms like Zoom or MS Teams, providing flexibility and convenience for firms with remote or satellite teams.

At Denovo, we believe in flexibility and customisation, allowing firms to mix and match these training options based on their specific needs, location, and staff availability.

Training – The Actual Process

Q: What can law firms expect during the training process?

A: During the training process, our primary objective is to ensure that all staff members are proficient in using our legal case management software to carry out their day-to-day tasks effectively. This includes tasks such as locating clients and matters within the software, generating documents, managing emails, and handling mail efficiently.

We understand that transitioning to new software can be daunting, especially for staff members accustomed to familiar work processes. That’s why our training sessions are designed to be comprehensive and hands-on, providing practical skills that can be applied immediately.

Furthermore, we provide ongoing support throughout the training process, whether it’s through on-site assistance or remote guidance. Our team is available to address any queries or concerns that may arise, ensuring a smooth and successful transition to our software.

Common Errors/Difficulties in Implementations

Q: What are some common challenges law firms face during software implementations, and how does Denovo address them?

A: One of the most common challenges we encounter during software implementations is a lack of commitment in terms of time and resources from the law firms themselves. Implementing new software requires dedication from both the software provider and the law firm.

To address this challenge, we start by conducting thorough consultations with our clients to understand their unique needs and requirements. Based on this information, we tailor our training sessions to focus on the specific functionalities and features that are most relevant to their practice areas and workflows.

Additionally, we emphasise the importance of preparation and collaboration throughout the implementation process. We work closely with our clients to ensure that all necessary documents, templates, and styles are integrated into the software, providing a seamless transition from their previous systems.

Ultimately, successful software implementation hinges on proactive communication, collaboration, and commitment from both parties involved. By working together closely and leveraging our expertise and resources, law firms can maximize the benefits of their legal case management software and enhance their overall efficiency and productivity.

In conclusion, implementing legal case management software requires careful planning, effective training, and ongoing support. With Denovo’s comprehensive training options, hands-on approach, and commitment to collaboration, law firms can embrace the future of legal technology with confidence and ease.
