Rafte & Company Delivers Matter-Centric Solution for Law Firms and Legal Corporate Departments
Solution Makes It Possible for Lawyers to Securely Access Case Information from Mobile Devices and Internet
HOUSTON, December 6, 2007 - Rafte & Company (www.rafte.com), a leading provider of strategic technology consulting services, legal software solutions, and information technology (IT) network design, implementation and management services, is taking action to allow lawyers to securely access client files, file e-mails, forward documents and provide real-time client service anytime, anywhere.
Rafte & Company is committed to providing an environment that allows attorneys to deliver the same quality of legal services working remotely as they do from their offices. Rafte & Company utilizes the latest technology solutions designed for legal customers to deliver a single and secure interface to all client and matter information.
This centralized, collaborative approach to providing document management, records management, and collaboration tools is referred to as a matter-centric environment. Matter-centric environments place the focus of the law firm or legal team, rather than an individual attorney and make case-level information securely accessible to internal and external users on an anytime, anyplace basis.
The Rafte & Company solution addresses one of the key challenges faced by many law firms and legal corporate departments -- giving attorneys using mobile devices the ability to be productive, responsive and connected while ensuring that client correspondence is handled professionally. The Rafte & Company team has found that many law firms and legal corporate departments that already use various legal technology solutions are not aware of improved e-mail management, records management and BlackBerry integration that are currently available.
"We have advocated matter centricity for a long time and this is another opportunity to shine the light on how much can be gained by making relatively small changes in how legal teams work," said Rafte & Company Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dena Rafte. "Now they can use their BlackBerry device and Internet access to securely manage online documents and e-mail for team collaboration and record retention. With matter centricity, we are making it easier and secure to manage case information remotely. By making it easy for attorneys to work together, they can focus on delivering exceptional value to their clients."
