gMeIn, Inc., a provider of cloud-based solutions such as GoToConnect, GoToMeeting, LastPass and Rescue, announced a new version of its unified communications as a service (UCaaS) platform, GoToConnect Legal, tailored to address the needs of those in the legal profession by streamlining collaboration with clients and colleagues to maximize billable hours.
Today’s legal professionals need a UCaaS solution that allows them to minimize unbilled time, maximize revenue, manage regulations from governing bodies, and maintain high security in their practice. According to a study by Clio, a technology provider in the legal space, the average lawyer is only billing 2.3 hours daily. Another study found that 37 percent of consumers prefer to meet virtually with a lawyer for a consultation or first meeting, and 50 percent would rather conduct follow-up meetings through video conference. GoToConnect Legal helps to solve these common problems by enabling lawyers to securely meet with their clients virtually while also integrating with some of the most used legal tools for easy billing and tracking.
With GoToConnect Legal customers can:
- Maximize billable time – Accurately track time through integrations with several practice management suites, including Clio and LawGro and more coming in the future. Relevant activity from Outlook, Google, Chrome, Fastcase, Westlaw, and Casetext is filed automatically in timesheets with a single click.
- Streamline call logs – Log the time spent on GoTo calls and messaging directly into Clio, so all relevant client information is in one place
- Easily schedule meetings – Schedule client and internal meetings via Calendly and create video meetings directly from your calendar
- Benefit from a robust and secure UCaaS solution – Maintain professional and secure client interactions with GoToConnect’s industry-leading security and up-time. Features such as Find Me / Follow Me, CallFlip, video and audio meetings, messaging, contact center capabilities, and more give law professionals the functionality they need for productive communication with clients
“As we look towards what is next for legal professionals, one thing is clear, there are many benefits of adopting a flexible and cloud-based technology approach to work and we are proud to support that endeavor,” said Mike Sharp, chief product officer for Unified Communications and Collaboration at LogMeIn. “GoToConnect helps enable this shift by providing key technology integrations that work seamlessly with the law firm’s existing ecosystem. Combined with the native features of GoToConnect, these integrations create a more streamlined and unified collaboration experience for our legal customers, helping them deliver high-quality, and easily-billable, services to their clients.”
In addition to the new legal version of GoToConnect, LogMeIn has recently launched additional contact center capabilities with its GoTo Contact offering, along with a newly unified admin system.
GoToConnect’s solutions are designed to be deployed quickly in one day even while teams are working fully remote. GoToConnect Legal is available in North America. GoToConnect is available in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, United Kingdom, Germany, Ireland, and Australia.
