The number of systems, databases, and platforms that the attorneys need and use has amplified due to the expansion of the legal technology. There were a handful of apps that was needed earlier but now there are more than a hundred, mentioned David Meyer, founder of single sign-on platform OneLogin. For onboarding and offboarding in the case of the new and departing employees respectively, the new apps are straining on resources. A part of that process need to be automated through a single sign-in, cloud-compatible account management system would be beneficial believed, Meyer:
For the law firm managers, the growing trends towards cloud-based technology is a risky business. Law firm operation manager must make sure that employees can’t access restricted data from cloud access while there is a company departure or change in responsibility. All the employee access points are granted and suspended simultaneously if automation is introduced.
An employee’s specific data access permission can change while there is a change in role. The law firm managers can track the security level permission for the particular employee with an automation system incorporated.
It will take weeks to completely set up the new recruits account starting from e-billing to social media accounts and others necessary accounts that person is likely to use. APIs from all the app firms can be used in a single standardized account with a unified username and password can be possible with automation.
Logging in to an account is by no means time consuming but when the number of accounts increase by 500 or so and the number of app login per account is some 3 to 4 one can expect some few hours of wasted time. Automation while incorporated can save a lot of time.
