The challenge

A verdict document needs to be shared with the relevant parties immediately after the verdict is handed down, but must be copied and mailed. Stacks of business cards received at professional organization events were left without being used. Moreover, scanning casebooks with a flatbed scanner to prepare for a judgement could take as long as two hours.

The solution

A ScanSnap scanning solution was implemented to streamline these tasks. He uses the iX500 to scan a verdict document and share it immediately. The iX500 is also used to scan business cards. He utilizes the CardMinder software to organize and save contact information. The SV600 is used to scan bound documents and enables quick extraction of the necessary parts.

The benefits

  • Scanned information can be shared immediately by e-mailing
  • Saves time by making an address book from the scanned business cards
  • Streamlined the process of producing legal briefs
  • Improved client service
