Miami, FL, May 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Six months after Invizio’s Information Technology (IT) overhaul took Miami law firm delancyhill virtual, utilizing an integrated Cloud infrastructure, the law firm is on track to save approximately $63,000 in annual operational expenditures. Invizio used current technologies to create a virtual IT environment that allows delancyhill access to data and key operational applications from anywhere in the world or locally from the firm’s three satellite offices.
Invizio facilitated the law firm’s smooth transition to virtual offices and consulted on the business process changes that the firm instituted to effectively go into the Cloud. Company work flow was improved by implementing document management software to reduce paper waste and to help the staff more readily locate case files and other important documents.
Invizio proactively monitors the law firm’s entire virtual IT environment leaving the firm’s partners to focus on growing business and servicing clients.
“When we relocated our firm into three office locations, we knew we needed an IT advisor who understood what it meant to be virtual,” said Marlon Hill, Partner, delancyhill, PA. “Invizio stepped right in to develop a Cloud infrastructure that provided our staff with access to the data and applications that are key to our firm’s operations from anywhere in the world.”
Cloud technology works well for professional service firms that have a distributed workforce, that employ telecommuters, or wish to operate without the boundaries of physical office space. Going into the Cloud allows companies to trim capital investments in the software and hardware of an IT infrastructure and allows firms to scale incrementally, purchase systems in a pay-as-you-go fashion, and free up cash flow for other pressing expenses.
And if all that wasn’t reason enough to consider the shift to the Cloud, the enhanced ability of a company to recover from disaster just might clinch the deal. Seventy percent of small businesses that experience critical data loss go out of business within a year. With important company data and business applications residing in the Cloud, firms stand a better chance of making it through the unexpected.
“Once a firm’s data and applications are hosted in the Cloud, the organization can recover quickly in the wake of a hurricane, or other natural disaster, and continue to service clients and access important case files even from a temporary office set-up,” said Kevin Michael, Invizio Managing Partner. “Invizio’s partnership with delancyhill has resulted in a reliable virtual infrastructure that will allow the law firm to operate in just such a scenario.”
