With information more readily available than ever, it can be tempting to believe that conducting research is easy business. But when push comes to shove and you need an answer to an obscure legal question or need to verify the authenticity of information, it may not be as simple of a task as anticipated. Law librarians can help create more effective searches and save money on searching costs. But how can you make sure that your librarians are as productive as possible and and maximize your return on investment? A great mobile strategy.
According to the University of Michigan Law School, the responsibility of librarians is to “find, categorize, analyze, and teach others how to find the information they need to do their jobs”. Law librarians help make everybody else’s job easier. As Joyce Manna Janto, the President of the American Association of Law Libraries, puts it – law librarians can help “sift through the dross to find the gold”. The average US mobile consumer is spending almost 90% of their time in native apps largely due to the quick and simple user experience that they offer. With a custom mobile app for your law library, your librarians can do their job even better.
In today’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) world, having a solution that is optimized for all devices further streamlines internal processes. Whether it is acting as a valuable recruitment and onboarding tool or even incorporating public-facing functionality, your mobile presence does not exclude any device or operating system, so the great content you provide is available no matter where you are. And of course, this increase in efficiency means more billable hours which translates into more money coming in.
With concerns about keeping your costs down, it will also help to have insight into how your resources are being used. Once they are aggregated within your own app you can use Boopsie Analytics to see how much different resources are being used. Great information leads to solid, informed decisions. So while you’re driving profits up, you can focus on keeping costs down.
And once you’re boosting your profits and cutting your costs with your very own mobile app, you can rest assured that there will be no burden on your IT department at all. Boopsie handles all of the operating system updates and provides full wrap-around IT support. It’s a stress-free implementation process and a stress free maintenance process!
