The weather’s getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and Cadbury’s famous eggs are back on the store shelves! Spring is truly in the air! Everyone here at CARET Legal is excited to see the seasons start to change, except for one thing – Daylight Savings. Sometimes it seems like we lose way more than an hour when we “spring forward” each March.
First you lose an hour of sleep, then you can’t go to sleep when you need to for the next few days because it feels too early. However, the mini-jet lag (seriously, that’s what the experts are saying it is) that ensues is not insurmountable. As long as you have coffee and CARET Legal you’ll be able to make it through the week.
Implementing CARET Legal into your practice will allow you to save a lot of time on administrative tasks that used to drain away hours from your days and energy from your life. For example, you can now drop emails and documents directly into a client’s folder and have everything backed up and secure in just a few clicks, all within the CARET Legal. There’s no more downloading and then re-uploading to a separate server.
You can also keep track of work you’ve done for your clients, send them an invoice, and transfer the funds designated as payment for that work from your trust account to the business account (and have all that properly recorded for tax and ethics compliance issues) all on the same system. And it just keeps getting better. That stack of business cards you picked up at the bar association event last night? Transferred into your contacts by just taking a picture of each one and clicking save.
The status meeting you need to schedule with your colleagues? On the calendar in minutes with your meeting agenda in “Notes” so that everyone can see the proposed agenda, add their input or take care of some of the tasks that have been assigned beforehand so the meeting is super-efficient and as short as possible.
You’re not officially going to get the hour you lose back until November, but the hours you spend at work are more productive than they used to be thanks to CARET Legal, so this is going to be the best time change yet.
