Managing legal documents for any type of legal matter can take a lot of time. The volume of documents can include original documents, internal documents, and digital files, such as electronic documents that must be printed or otherwise stored. You can benefit from legal document management services no matter what type of legal firm you manage.
Some legal firms attempt to keep all of their original documents and digital legal documents on their property. The problem? Consider the amount of time that it takes to organize, file, store, retrieve, and prepare paper documents. Storing and reconciling digital and physical files can be incredibly tedious and counterproductive.
Regardless of whether you’re involved in trial prep or it’s just a regular day in the office, you must be able to find what you need, when you need it, without hoping the printer, scanner, or copier works. And, if it is a trial or deposition day, a paper jam or other tech issue like a server or hard drive failure doesn’t happen at the last minute causing you to no longer have access to crucial digital files!
Is There a Solution for Legal Printing Services and Document Management?
The legal industry faces significant challenges in processing information in multiple formats from many sources. This includes, but is not limited to, activities from deposition and trial preparation involving legal printing services to archiving digital files and litigation scanning of legal documents after a trial.
In a law office, printing, copying, or scanning, full color, high quality original documents or even internal documents can be quite time consuming, especially if there is a volume of documents that must be contended with.

How Much Does Legal Document Managed Print Services Cost for Law Firms?
Just like there’s no one-size-fits-all solution to managed print, there’s no quick and easy answer to how much print can cost for a law firm. Depending on the managed print provider, price estimates can range from a couple of thousand dollars to $10,000 (or more).
So when you’re shopping around for a managed print provider, here are some factors that can affect the cost of your managed print services package.
Ask yourself these questions as you’re evaluating your future MPS provider:
Equipment: What types of printers will you need? Do you need to print black and white? Color? High speed?
Volume: How much do you print in a day, week, or month?
Location: Is the MPS provider in the same city, state or region as you?
Maintenance: Are your office managers keeping your printers up-to-date with firmware updates, using the supplied toner, and following recommendations for the care and upkeep of your print ecosystem?
Monthly Billing or Flat-Rate: How are MPS services billed? Are there extra fees or additional service costs?
Remember, a good managed print provider — like Standley Systems — will take the time to learn about the legal matters you handle, learn about the volume of documents you handle on a regular basis, and the services you most likely need. Then, they’ll provide you with a custom quote that includes the service offered.
Find a MPS provider whose objective is to meet your needs, not to sell you something you won’t use or that you don’t need.
Document Management Includes Keeping Data Security Compliance
With the rise of the remote workforce and the increase in application security, compliance must remain at the top of your priority list. Constant threats to your network, critical documents, and sensitive client information can be difficult to navigate.
That’s where a good managed print provider comes in. A MPS provider can help create a plan to protect your systems, your files, and your sensitive information. Just like the experts at Standley Systems, MPS providers help legal firm clients create plans to help achieve compliance with:
HIPPA – Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
