12 Scanning 2

13 How we do it now….. Post comes in Partner review and distribution Staff work on client Long-term storage (eventually) Filing clerk/secretary collates into file Where do we put the scanner into this process to gain maximum benefit from minimum disruption?

14 Option 1 – Scan at end of process Post comes in Partner review and distribution Work on client Scan instead of client-filing Day-file (and move off-site) Pro Minimal disruption for fee earners Initial distribution of documents is fast Con Documents dont get scanned for some time after initial receipt

15 Option 2 – Scan in the middle Post comes in Partner review Work on client Scan before distribution Day-file (and move off-site) Pro Documents are scanned and on-line on day of receipt Fee-earners are free to keep originals on their desks Con Delay in distribution to fee-earners

16 Option 3 – Scan up front Post comes in Work on client Scan before distribution ( sent to partners automatically) Pro Documents are scanned and on-line on day of receipt Electronic Workflow! Con Big cultural change – can be difficult to implement Partner reviews on screen and forwards electronically Day-file (and move off-site)
