Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, many ambitious entrepreneurs within the legal system have chosen to branch out and go solo. With the help of Sussex-based Microsoft Partner, Extech Cloud, lawyers don’t have to feel alone.
“As much as the legal industry is ahead in some areas, when it comes to IT, it’s often still in the dark ages due to consultants and previous IT companies pulling the wool over the industry’s eyes and opting for what’s easier, instead of what would be best,” explains Andrew Hookway, Managing Director of Burgess Hill firm Extech Cloud.
Before creating Extech Cloud, Andrew initially ran a large corporate firm for 10 years before deciding to go his own way.
“The pandemic has changed so much about people’s day-to-day routines. More so than ever, we’re tending to find that people are wanting change and the legal industry is no exception,” adds Andrew.
Lawyers who are leaving firms and branching out to begin a solo venture may think that going solo means that they are ‘solo’ when it comes to having IT support, however that’s not the case. Extech Cloud is on-hand to provide those in the legal industry with everything they need, including help with taking steps towards a new way of working through cloud transformation.
“To date, we have completed hundreds of cloud transformation projects, saving our customers thousands of pounds, improving their overall performance, and making their staff happier as a result,” says Andrew.
Whether it is through moving all work to the cloud or finding new and innovative solutions to working remotely, Extech Cloud can provide customers with all necessary services under one roof, to help get them up and running in no time.
Concerns such as setting up with the right equipment, cabling options, or a more significant threat such as cybersecurity are inevitable when running your own business, however, the team at Extech Cloud are experts in helping the legal sector to adopt new technologies and keep ahead of competition.
Although the team at Extech Cloud works with start-ups and small businesses, they have also completed digital transformations for much larger legal firms such as Hunters Law LLP, who initially contacted Extech Cloud looking for a solution to upgrade its servers and overall infrastructure. When they were informed this was not possible by another IT company, they sought to find other service providers.
The team of experts at Extech Cloud has spent years working on, and refining, the journey to the cloud, making it a simple and smooth transition for businesses, like Hunters Law, to work effectively at anytime, anywhere. To date, the team has completed hundreds of cloud transformation projects, saving customers thousands of pounds, improving their overall performance, and making their staff happier as a result.
