Productivity = Don’t file? No! Matter Centric DMS
Productivity = Don’t file? No! Matter Centric DMS

An IT blog recently recommended “Want to be more productive? Don’t file your email.” Sure, if each person spends 20 minutes daily to file emails, that adds up to a lot of time spent firmwide. Personally, I don’t conclude that ’employees are losing a lot of time carrying out a pointless exercise’. At a law firm or in a legal department, the goal is not purely personal productivity – consider overriding goals for collaboration and record retention. In the legal context, the ‘time spent’ argument is a strawman – set it up in order to knock it down. Don’t read their headline and assume it makes sense for legal!
