The Harris Law Firm is one of Colorado's largest and most successful law firms focusing exclusively on family law. Over the last few years, Rich Harris was faced the same IT challenges that many companies are facing: increasing costs in support and licensing, rapid obsolescence of hardware and software and a demand by his staff for higher mobility and reliability, to name just a few. In late 2009, Concentrics proposed a solution to move the entire firm's operations to Concentrics Hosted Application Services. With a staff of almost forty attorneys, paralegals and administration Concentrics built a host based solution that provides solutions to almost all of these challenges.
Attorneys now have full secure access wherever they work using the latest Microsoft products. With the full sophistication of Microsoft Exchange, the entire staff can now have access to their e-mail through any web browser, data enabled phone or Blackberry and with the power of the Concentrics Data Center behind them, they have a high level of redundancy and reliability that most companies cannot afford.
Rich has now found that aside from reducing his IT support cost he has actually achieved higher productivity from his staff. Wherever his staff works, they have complete access to the IT resources of the company. With his workstations aside, his IT costs have been reduced to a single monthly access charge for services. Rich also now enjoys the ability to add any number of staff and have them access the company's IT resources with just a phone call.
