The world has changed and the legal sector has to keep up. The 2020 Annual Law Firms Report from PWC states that “investing in the right technology” is one of the biggest challenges facing law firms today. It also states that recent events “will allow firms to assess the extent to which their IT systems are fit for purpose and make important further changes for the future”.

And traditionally the legal sector hasn’t been as quick to embrace change as other sectors, so it is important that they get advice they can rely on.

So, what advantages can technology deliver for London’s law firms?

  • Collaboration tools, allowing distributed creation and sharing of important documents
  • Streamlined electronic document signing for clients
  • Improved transparency, accuracy and speed of billing
  • Increased productivity by allowing colleagues to work remotely, be that at home, in a client’s office or even in court
  • Reduced threat of cyber-attacks which could lead to loss of both revenue and reputation

We are delighted with Labyrinth’s support. They are extremely responsive, friendly and always willing to go the extra mile to help us resolve any IT issues that arise. They also provide excellent strategic input to improve our IT systems and enable us to run more efficiently. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Do You Need Experienced Legal Sector IT Support in London?

Our approachable staff will use plain English and not confuse you with technical jargon. We will never make you sign a long contract and we guarantee to respond within an agreed timeframe. And we will never oversell and will always work on the principle of ‘best advice’.

IT Support is a general term used to describe any assistance provided by external, 3rd party suppliers, to organisations which (usually) don’t have an in-house IT department.  This can be in the form of “Managed IT Support” (effectively a full time presence provided on a contract basis) or just specific services which are required on an ad hoc project basis. The nature of the service provided by the Managed Service Provider (MSP) can vary depending on the needs of the client.

Maintaining good IT can be time consuming, resource intensive and expensive, especially when you have a business to run. The evolving nature of IT means that businesses need to ensure their IT staff are up to date with the latest technologies and this usually involves training, which comes at a cost. In addition, staff turnover means a need to recruit, which is a similar drain on your precious resources. By outsourcing your IT support, you get a guaranteed team of experienced, skilled and professional staff with a wealth of knowledge to manage your IT. And because training, recruitment and so on for that team is the purview of the IT support firm, your costs are reduced.

Someone once said that a computer only gives the correct result if the right data has been programmed in, and it’s the same with IT support. We believe that conducting an in-depth analysis of your business, its processes and procedures is essential to delivering a quality support service. We will work with you and the incumbent supplier to review any current issues and carry out any work to address legacy issues, leaving our clients with improved performance and greater reliability. Our tried and tested transition processes and methodology is designed to minimise the risk to you when changing to Labyrinth Technology as your trusted MSP.

We have partnerships with major suppliers such as Microsoft, Watchguard, Dell and so on, and as such we can offer both the hardware and software necessary to deliver the support, services and solutions you need to run your business. We aim to be the single point of contact for supplying these products and services, as well as taking on the responsibility of managing these assets once in place. However, this is not a mandatory requirement. Our clients are free to source and purchase their own hardware and software if preferred, and Labyrinth Technology is always on hand to offer as much (or as little) advice to help them decide what options suit their business.

As we always try to make clear, Labyrinth Technology provides IT support to our clients so that they no longer need to waste time dealing with IT problems. Instead, they can focus on making their businesses succeed. And as they succeed they do so confident that our services are fully scalable. We regularly review the service provided to our clients, both through data gathered from our best in class monitoring systems, as well as meetings with our customers. We can easily amend the products and services applicable to the contract, or can even move a client to entirely new support package.

The short answer is that, unusually in today’s world, we put you first. We don’t believe that we need to tie clients in to long term, multi-year contracts, but instead focus all of our efforts in delivering the highest standards of customer service. We want our clients to want to stay with us, not have to stay with us. We are confident that after more than 20 years providing IT support to London’s businesses that our experience, technical proficiency and quality of service makes us a desirable IT Support solutions provider. And we can demonstrate our credentials as all work is delivered to IS09001:2015 Quality Management standards.

Not a problem! Either your named Technical Account Manager or one of our product specialists are always available for visits when necessary. Which it will be depends on the issue, which could simply be for routine maintenance, specific support issues or ad-hoc projects. And we have regular review visits with all of our clients also.

Our services are primarily aimed at business located with their main offices in the Greater London area, but our services are available for multi-site clients with locations across the UK.

The reality of today’s inter-connected world is that digital technology is used to drive virtually every aspect of a business. Whether it is product development, project planning, accounting and finance, communications or HR, there is usually a keyboard being tapped or a mouse being clicked to facilitate a process.

So Labyrinth Technology aims to provide business IT support that delivers fast response times, reduced system downtime, assurance that your business is using the best equipment and software, reduced cost, and time to focus on your core business goals and objectives.
