What a Legal Practice Management System Does
To start off with, we are going to introduce to you a brand new concept in this part of the world that has proven to help many others from around the world. This new thing is called a Legal or Law Practice Management System (also known as LPMS in short).
Although a fairly new concept to Sri Lanka and even the region, these are quite popular in the North American and European regions. You may ask why! The answer is simple. To make work more efficient and earn more with the time that is saved. The legal profession is growing super fast in these regions and is becoming highly competitive. To beat the competition and get that extra client on-board, there needs to be some magic but a legal practice management system is no magic. It’s pure logic, that acts as a magical charm for those who use it.
A typical legal practice management system will help you manage your clients, your documents and even manage your income and expenses. It is basically a tool that makes your work more efficient by cutting down time you spend on routine operational tasks. If you are a law firm, you can assign roles, share tasks on a role basis, control access to different users and the list just goes on.
What makes Legistant special out of the rest?
Legistant is special for 3 main reasons.
Reason 1 – We’re Sri Lankan
Legistant was developed entirely by a Sri Lankan team of IT professionals with continuous guidance, support and review of local legal professionals. The system has been created to fit the needs of local legal professionals even supporting languages Sinhalese and Tamil. This makes Legistant the ideal solution for a Sri Lankan law firm to manage their legal matter.
Reason 2 – The super cool features
Yes we do offer the same features as a “typical” legal practice management system. But, we offer more. We have an advanced evidence management system that keeps your data secure and inaccessible to unauthorized parties. We are a cloud based platform, meaning you can access our system from wherever you are, let it be at home, on the back seat of your ride or even while enjoying your in-flight music 35,000 ft above sea level given that you have a good internet connection. Legistant even allows you to add your clients on to the system and communicate with them for no additional cost. That’s not it. There’s so much more.
Reason 3 – Security, last but not least
We have taken immense number of steps to ensure that every aspect of Legistant is highly secure. We host the application in a secure AWS VPS (Amazon Web Service Virtual Private Service), and keep the stored data, and the database in separate layers to prevent a single point of failure.
A few other examples include AES 256 Encrypted data, End-to-End Encrypted Communication similar to WhatsApp’s security protocols. This means that your data is unreadable both when stored and when it is in transit. We use a technique called the principle of least privilege as a security measure. We also host Legistant’s Core, Legistant’s Secure Evidence Management System and the Legistant Email System in separate servers.
This above is apart from the standard security practices such as SSL/TSL HTTPS Strict Transport Security, encrypted cookies, etc. We also use minimal cookies to prevent data theft with quick expiration. We use layered firewalls that filters traffic. We also have active malware scanners that continuously scans files as they are uploaded and downloaded, the transit traffic is also monitored.
We also maintain a blueprint for security, which is similar to a fire escape plan, where we cover 500 of the most common security threats.
The accounts secured using very strict practices, such as forcing the use of strong passwords. In fact, we encourage the use of passphrases (sentences) over single words, because password sentences are harder to crack. E.g. “miy#rugetsupat8inthemorning” is better than “miy#ru@123”.
In summary, we give you the maximum possible security for your information.
