HOUSTON, March 14, 2006 – Dena Rafte, founder and president of Rafte & Company, is scheduled to present, “A Workable Guide to Records Management,” to the Central Florida Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators on May 31, 2006. Rafte & Company is a leading provider of business strategy and technology solutions for law firms and other professional services firms.

According to a study from the UC Berkeley School of Information Management and Systems, more than 90 percent of all new information is created and stored in electronic form. This crush of data has heightened client expectations around records management, which is driving firms to develop and implement strategies to reduce business risk.

“For law firms to realize the greatest benefit from records management systems, they need to seize the opportunity to reengineer the firm’s work flow processes during implementation,” said Rafte. “Reviewing how information and work products flow through the firm is an opportunity to vastly improve operations.”

Rafte will be the featured presenter at the Central Florida Chapter of the ALA’s May Chapter Meeting, which begins with networking at 11:30 a.m. on May 31, at (location), in Orlando. To register, RSVP to Kristin Shutler by calling 407.758.3872 or e-mail kshutler@dbksmn.com. The cost for members is $20.
