Law Firm Cuts IT Costs by 90 Percent, Dismisses Server Worries with Online Services
James C. Nolan Law Office specializes in immigration law. Owner James Nolan uses technology to deliver excellent customer service and achieve paperless efficiencies, but his technology costs were too high, and it was too difficult to connect part-time workers to his firm's systems. Nolan decided to eliminate his physical servers and subscribe to the Microsoft® Business Productivity Online Standard Suite. By moving messaging and collaboration software and data to the Internet "cloud," Nolan cut IT costs by 90 percent. Removing the physical servers also helped Nolan downsize his space and save on rent and electrical bills. Having Microsoft host documents eliminates worries about server downtime, and employees are more productive by accessing data online, anytime. Setting up part-time workers to access the firm systems now takes 15 minutes instead of two or three days.
