Does Technology Help Or Hinder Your Practice?

You’ve probably run into the frustrating paradox of technology: new systems make hard things easy but sometimes make easy things hard. Users clamor for new features and companies add them, only to end up making devices too complicated to use. This is just as true in the world of NY child support software as it is in the world of smartphones or automobile dashboards.

Technology Should Make Life Easier

It’s tempting to jump on every technology bandwagon that comes along. Each nifty new device or piece of software suddenly becomes something you must have, even though you’ve practiced without it for years. After all, those people in the commercial sure look happy!

Unfortunately the reality often doesn’t match the fantasy of the advertisements — shocking, I know! New software can be frustratingly difficult to use, and may require you to completely revamp your practice operations to accommodate the new system.

What Do You Need?

Do you really need a cell phone that butters your toast for you? Don’t be tempted by every new feature that comes along. Something may sound cool, but if you never actually use it in your practice or if it makes basic family law activities harder, then you are only hurting yourself.

Before evaluating new NY family law software, take a moment to think about what your needs are. Where do you have problems? What tasks eat up your day? What are the core activities of your practice? New York family law attorneys, for example, spend a lot of time filling out the Statement of Net Worth. How much easier does this tool make that job?

Prepare For A Learning Curve

On the other hand, it’s not unusual even for a good system to slow things down at first. You are used to doing things a certain way and it will take time to get used to the new software. Give it some time, give it an honest chance, and you might be pleasantly surprised how quickly you can accomplish things with the new tool. You didn’t learn the law in a day; don’t expect to learn your software that quickly.
