What are today’s high ROI IT investments?

  • Cybersecurity
  • End-user computer efficiency
  • Effective infrastructure, and
  • Internal IT skill development


The Impact of Technology
The Forbes article The Future Lawyer notes: “The future lawyer must augment core legal knowledge with other skills including understanding technology’s application and impact on the delivery of legal services”. Our perspective extends this concept. Understanding technology is the first step. Tangible value is generated by the actual usage of the correct technologies.

Cybersecurity Measures
Legalweek’s 2018 presentations were weighted heavily toward Cybersecurity topics. Our perspective is this: the implementation of effective cybersecurity measures within one firm may present IT risks when the same measures are implemented in other firms. Effective IT security plans and procedures generate security value when they are implemented in consistent and customized ways.

Four Areas of Examination
Four areas of IT are now at the forefront of consideration within the legal sector.  (1) Cybersecurity, (2) End-user computer efficiency, (3) Effective infrastructure, and (4) internal IT skill development.  We view these areas of focus as interwoven. Services that address multiple technical and end-user efficiency factors produce the best ROI.

End-User Efficiency
One measure of end-user work efficiency begins at the layer of “hands-on-keyboard” interactions with Internet connections, internal networks, and user equipment (such as workstations and mobile devices). Worktime in the legal sector has direct monetary value. We view the delivery of technical support services as a fundamental framework that can maximize end-user IT efficiency.

We are trusted by our clients

“When we first engaged with Strategic Response Systems, we were using tape backups and just learning about the possibilities offered by cloud computing and virtual private networks. It was the ability to shed ourselves of most of the hardware and environmental responsibilities of onsite infrastructure combined with improved security, 100% uptime, scalability and speed of information access/recovery provided by SRS’s strategic hosting capabilities that made us cloud converts. The Strategic Response Systems Help Desk team have provided excellent customer service for Perlman staff, both support staff and our legal teams, 24/7. No matter when we call, even on weekends and in the middle of the night, there is always an SRS technical professional ready to resolve any issues.”
