Why Desktop 365 for
Supercharge fee earners
By increasing efficiency and case delivery speed
Fee earners are the lifeblood of any law practice so maximising their efficiency and case delivery speed is always priority. Desktop 365 not only provides a massive boost to the productivity and efficiency of your fee earners but also provides the platform for more flexible working practices that will ultimately help you to attract and retain top legal talent.
Breathe new life into your apps
By hosting favoured on-premise applications in the cloud
Many law firms use software and applications that require a local install either on user devices, servers or most commonly on both. While more accessible cloud alternatives are available, many practices are simply not willing to lose the rich features they enjoy with their current technology. Desktop 365 ensures you don’t need to make this trade-off.
In addition, law firms can’t afford to have significant disruption to their processes, they need to keep cases moving. Implementing new technology can cause massive disturbance. Desktop 365 can virtualise many of your existing apps and processes so you can still work in the same way with the same tools, zero disruption and greater flexibility.
Streamline accreditation processes
By increasing compliance, security and control
Obtaining industry standard accreditation, such as Lexcel and Cyber Essentials, is extremely important for law firms looking to thrive in the high-competition legal services sector. Desktop 365 simplifies the process of becoming accredited by helping in the areas of business continuity, flexible working, monitoring, compliance, and email, internet and network security.
Accreditations are not just a one-hit wonder either, they must be continually earned. For Cyber Essentials eligibility is assessed yearly while for Lexcel it is every 3 years. Desktop 365 will help to keep you compliant with many aspects of these standards, ultimately making it easier for you to gain accreditation.

Why was it avoidable?
Physically transferring data introduces a significant element of human risk and passing it through a 3rd party increases this even further. Desktop 365 virtualises your data stores so they can instantly be accessed by any of your offices when required. Sensitive data never has to leave your network, signifcantly reducing the risk of receiving hefty fines relating to data breach. Malicious access is restricted via Multi-Factor Authentication, heavily encrypted communications between your network and data centres, and storing data virtually and never on susceptible devices.
Desktop 365 is a highly certified solution which means that your company can benefit from partnering with us on your IT infrastructure. Our data centres are also ISO 27001 compliant so you can be confident in our third party partners too.
