Business Challenge

Managing a Network Without IT Support Proved Frustrating

Initially, Del Rio & Carichoff, P.C. used AbacusLaw practice automation software, installed on their local network, to manage all of their cases and clients. As their firm grew, their needs changed. Without professional IT support, trying to manage a network proved frustrating and took time away from revenue-generating activities. Coupled with deteriorating speed of their applications and network, it came time to either purchase a server or move to the cloud.

The Solution

Much Faster and More Responsive

“We’ve been very happy with our AbacusLaw software for years. It does everything we need, and more,” said Robert Carichoff, Esq. “But as our firm expanded, our needs changed. We realized it made more sense, both financially and from a resource-perspective, to move our practice to the cloud to eliminate our IT management issues and improve our efficiency.”

Immediately after migrating to Abacus Private Cloud, the firm noticed the increased speed and responsiveness of AbacusLaw. Robert continued: “When we ran AbacusLaw locally on a workstation, the speed deteriorated as our firm grew. With Abacus Private Cloud, the application is much faster and more responsive. We can have all staff members working in the system, from different locations, without missing a beat. The efficiency gains from being so mobile have been tremendous.” Additionally, the firm no longer has to worry about different applications from different vendors trying to communicate with each other. Abacus Private Cloud provides a fully integrated environment for all of their applications, including AbacusLaw, Office 365, Adobe Acrobat and more. With full IT management and support from Abacus, the firm no longer wastes time calling multiple vendors when they have a question or need assistance.
