Your Next Test Drive May Not Run on Gas or Batteries

 

WOULD YOU BUY A CAR WITHOUT DOING A TEST DRIVE?

One great thing about Tesla that sets it apart from other automotive companies, is that they allow customers to take a private test drive their Model S. If you’re looking to buy a car with a hefty price tag, you probably want to get a feel for what it’s like before you make the decision to purchase. The Model S receives all sorts of rants and raves as the best electric car on the market, but with a $90,000 price tag, you still want to get behind the wheel rather than relying on reviews from Tesla fanatics.

FILETRAIL'S TEST DRIVE EXPERIENCE

FileTrail offers their own version of a test drive by providing a sandbox system.  The FileTrail Sandbox is an actual running system – not a demo – that is set up for your private experience.  The FileTrail Sandbox is currently available at no cost to AM Law 250 Law Firms, and can be available in as little as 24 hours.  Serious buyers can even test drive FileTrail in a sandbox pre-loaded with their data for a more realistic experience.

Normally when you install software, bits and pieces of it are installed all over your computer’s hard drive, leaving orphaned files even after the software is uninstalled. Because the FileTrail Sandbox is in the Cloud you can safely test drive the system without any changes being made to your servers or desktop computers.  Once you select FileTrail you can determine whether to implement the Cloud solution or install on-premise with your IT department.

The FileTrail Sandbox includes all the configuration tools. This allows you to make configuration changes to adjust the fit or confirm how easy adjustments are to accommodate future change.

SOLUTIONS FOR AM 250 LAW FIRMS

Many of our current clients, including Jackson Lewis and Husch Blackwell, started with a test drive in the FileTrail Sandbox before selecting FileTrail as their Records Management solution. 

Before starting the test drive in the FileTrail Sandbox many organizations create a checklist of features and capabilities they want to see.  This typically includes processes like file creation, printing labels, searching, reporting, applying retention, managing holds, and more.  The test drive usually kicks off with a brief training on the checklist items, and includes help desk support during the test. 

Some organizations begin with a week of testing against the checklist without any training.  The purpose of this is to test how intuitive the FileTrail software is for a new user with no knowledge of FileTrail, and really kick the ‘user experience tires’ hard.  We actually love this kind of test drive, and have incorporated this feedback into the software to improve the UI and streamline processes.

 

FileTrail’s Master Plan – It’s Been a Secret All Along

As the week winds down, we’ve learned a few things from the Tesla Model 3 unveiling.

1.    Electric cars are the new cool

2.    Elon Musk is a marketing genius

3.    We can learn from Tesla’s master plan

Let’s take a look at an easy break down of Tesla’s master plan that has catapulted the company onto every media outlet. Tesla has now collected over 325,000 pre-orders and $14.5 billion in potential sales.

It seems simple enough. Some wonder why everyone hasn’t been following this strategy. Here’s the big secret. Everyone is doing this, but doing it in their own way. Let’s reflect by taking a look at our master plan and break down how FileTrail has gotten to where it is today.

So, in short, the master plan is:

  • Build World Class Physical Records Management (PRM)

  • Use that money to build Governance Driven Tools

  • Use that money to build Modern and Intuitive Electronic Document Management (EDM)

  • While doing above, also provide lower cost of ownership and amazing customer service

Physical Records were our jam in 2001 and we stuck with it. With the millennium here, companies were leaving behind their physical records software in the 90’s along with grunge wear and floppy disks. However, we understood that the paperless office would never go away. While we do agree that the accumulation of physical records is decreasing, there’s nothing we can do to get rid of the paper that’s already there.

We knew then that we needed to be the PRM saviors. Records needed to be managed and our world class software was going to take control. We began offering RFID tracking, commercial records center integration, intelligent search, and compliance tools all in a single solution.

The pre-millennium juggernauts of PRM chose to move away from paper and were leaving their customers to fend for themselves with outdated and unsupported systems, paving gaping holes for compliance risks, litigation terrors, and information mismanagement.

Our success in PRM gave us new insight and new revenue to work with, end-users in mind. We felt a responsibility to re-imagine and re-engineer Information Governance (IG) to work for everyone.  IG needed to be actionable and enforceable. We created tools to automate retention and classification, while notifying the user with email alerts to disposition reviews, and provided on-demand audit reports. Working to address this issue guaranteed that our PRM would be the most secure and comprehensive system available on the market.

Just as Tesla worked to create a solution for a greater number of customers, we engineered on to do the same. Keeping our core values in mind we wanted to stretch our reach and help more organizations. Now into the last phase of our road map, and bootstrapped the whole way, we began to dream about electronic document management without dropping our bread and butter, PRM.

We engineered the most modern, intuitive, and secure, information management software available today. We have successfully unified physical records, information governance, and electronic documents into one incredible product (the Tesla Model 3).

Our unified records management software offers a powerfully intuitive user interface, giving you all the tools you’ll ever need. Search and locate files with a few clicks, migrate and manage millions of records, or simply enjoy the version control of documents being shared while working with teammates and coworkers.

Our solution offers a low cost of ownership, guaranteeing an affordable cost for a sophisticated software that manages all records and assets, despite form or function. From securing client information to tracking satellites, we’ve got you covered.

Every customer of ours is brought on with 100% support from our support and implementation team. Our customer service ensures that your IT team won’t be left scratching their heads. It’s our product and we’ll support your organization for the life of it; that’s a promise.

Remember those outdated giants we talked about? Maybe your organization is still using their product despite frustration from users. Just know that we’ll save you money and migraines.

Remember that gaping compliance hole? With FileTrail, ditch legal woes and low audit scores. Our governance driven technology is securing all of your documents while keeping your organization compliant.

So, maybe it hasn’t been a secret all along. That was our roadmap and we made sure our goals were met. We want to help as many organizations reach their goals and benchmarks in information management by offering an affordable yet comprehensive and modern solution.
