A survey of 100 law firms conducted by ALM media and document and workflow solutions provider Omtool found while over two-thirds (69 percent) of law firms currently scan at least some of their records, only about a third (35 percent) expand scanning to both current and historical files. Which means 65 percent of firms have not yet gone fully digital. So what’s the hold up?

Denise Meyer, director of marketing communications at Omtool, explained that “Some may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of digging into the archives. It is often simply a question of where to start with the knowledge there are potentially thousands of boxes to dig through. The hefty investment in time and resources to do so may feel insurmountable. And we have found this is why many firms opt to start with one department or section of the records room to start and show early success.”
