You are already using workflows, you just might not think about it. A workflow gets you from point A to Point B, it is the basic things you do throughout the day as you manage your matters, clients and office.
A good workflow ensures that steps get followed, matters get resolved and you get paid. A great workflow ensures that everyone involved in every step of a matter is able to work as intelligently and efficiently as possible.
Taking a workflow that is practiced in concept and converting it into a fully automated procedure increases efficiencies and profitability. Efficient automated workflows let you work smarter instead of harder.
A properly mapped workflow will show where a matter is at any given point and can alert various partners when they are needed, eliminating the need for time-wasting non-billable interactions.

A lack of cohesive processes, controls and data can lead to costly errors and delays. Operational workflows help mitigate the risks and ensure that everyone knows exactly what is happening from day-to-day.
Multiple people being able to work remotely on the same matter is essential to a successful firm.
Ensure that you are getting the most out of your team by giving them the right tools.
