Hicksons Lawyers get eSmart

We’re working with Hicksons Lawyers to reduce their paper-based processes right now.  Jordan Meagher, the firm’s IT Manager, is leading the project and we asked him about the decision to choose eSmart Paper: I was exploring technology options to reduce paper and paper-based processes in our firm and while I was already aware of the eSmart Paper solution, I needed to carry out due diligence on other options available.  It quickly became clear that other options I was considering involved a layer of complexity – they were reliant on other systems and hardware being in place to work effectively, each with their own cost and contract arrangements.  eSmart Paper stood out for us as the most suitable solution because of its simplicity – it’s a single system that connects with all of our existing systems and software to solve the paper problem. We will be going live shortly with the first of three phases of…
