The firm had reached a crossroads with its former copying and scanning solution. It required two terminals, had little to no workflow features, was problematic integrating with the billing system, and required extra steps to send documents to the firm’s document management system. This took valuable time away from client matters, frustrated users, and made it difficult to engage in cost recovery activities. For example, a user would need to log in at the copier for copies but move to a different station to scan and route documents.
As a result, Casner & Edwards, which had reached the end of the line with its existing contract, began evaluating solutions that would be easy to use and integrate with billing and document management systems.
The current system was hindering productivity, cost recovery, and ultimately client service. Casner & Edwards had four factors at play when evaluating a new solution:
– Consolidating the stations. In addition to lost productivity, the firm also wanted to reduce the footprint in the copy and scan areas.
– Ease of use. Logging in to two stations frustrated users, especially new users or temporary employees.
– Workflow management. Casner & Edwards needed the ability to route documents to email or document management systems from the scanner.
– Cost recovery. The firm required accurate numbers to properly bill our clients, and a new system would need to integrate with the firm’s billing software.
