Virtual Desktops for Law Firms

You’re a law firm. You need reliable, secure technology. And you need your team to work from anywhere.

When one thinks of “the cloud,” we often think of web-based software such as Clio law practice management, or FreshBooks accounting, or simple cloud storage solutions like Microsoft OneDrive, DropBox and Google Drive.

But there’s a lot more to the cloud than just web-based software.

Many law firms, particularly those that have 8 or more team-members, need tools more sophisticated and more robust than the web-based software available and basic cloud storage. Many firms need comprehensive case management and accounting software. And many firms need a document storage system that’s more than just basic files and folders.

What’s more, many law firms are committed to the practice management software they already use, applications like ProLaw, Time Matters, Tabs3, PCLaw, Worldox, TrialWorks and others.

For these law firms, a Virtual Desktop might be the perfect fit.
