For starters, you’re going to need additional hardware. Specifically, one of the key tools needed is a reliable, affordable scanner. In The 2019 Solo and Small Firm Legal Technology Guide authors Sharon D. Nelson, John W. Simek, and Michael C. Maschke help lawyers sift through their technology choices and address the many different hardware needs of law firms. When it comes to scanners, they recommend two different models for law firms.
The first is for firms in need of a low-volume scanner: the Fujitsu Scansnap iX500. This desktop scanner scans up to 25 color pages per minute.
The second, the Fujitsu fi-5530C2 scanner, is for firms in need of a higher-volume scanner. This scanner scans 50 color pages per minute. Depending on your small firm’s specific needs, either would be a good choice.
