Event: Postcards from the Edge: Early Adopters of Office 2013 and Office 365

Description: Early adopters of Office 2007 played the technology equivalent of “Where’s Waldo?” as they clicked through Ribbon tabs in search of their favorite commands. With Office 2013, Microsoft has continued to refine (and improve upon!) the Office Fluent user interface. There are also a handful of new features — particularly around collaboration — that seem very enticing. So what’s holding us back? Why not flip the switch? The answer: third-party tools. Document Management anyone? Not to mention Microsoft has changed the rules with Office 365 and the idea of a managed solution. Will this model work for law firms? In this session Jeffrey will show you how to map out a plan for evaluating whether your firm is a good candidate to be an early adopter and whether you should consider moving to Office 365. We’ll also share what we’ve learned from those who have jumped on the Office 2013 bandwagon and provide attendees with a definitive checklist that lets you easily and quickly measure your readiness to join the early adopters of Office 2013.
