For Connolly & Shireman — a team of attorneys in Houston, Texas, specializing in family, juvenile and appellate law — the management of paper files had reached its tipping point.
The firm’s documents were primarily stored in file cabinets and overflowed into banker boxes as the cases grew over time. Digital documents were stored on a network server, which meant that attorneys could not easily access case files when they were in court or out of the office. The office was also in desperate need of more advanced IT support, and a more robust and efficient copier; and the thriving firm was just a few months away from a move to a new office in the Greenway Plaza district of Houston.
With so many balls in the air, the firm’s Office Administrator, Tona King, seized the opportunity to make a change. With the help of Function4, King turned the search for a new multifunctional copier into a complete overhaul of the Connolly & Shireman document management and business systems.
