What is an ASP?

Attorneys will hear the acronym ASP (Application Service Provider) frequently in the near future. The term refers to software that is delivered over the Internet to your web browser. The company delivering the software is referred to as an Application Service Provider (ASP). ASP software is becoming widely available to attorneys in areas such as case management, time & billing, calendars, forms, client collaboration & legal research. ASP services are usually sold as subscriptions.

The main advantages of using ASP software are:

  1. No installation headaches - a boon to small practices without full-time computer staff
  2. No updates - the software and content is updated by the provides, you never have to buy an upgrade
  3. Mobility - as the software resides on the Internet you can access it from anywhere - a boon to mobile attorneys
  4. Backup - small offices often neglect to backup their data. When a computer crashes you could lose years of precious client data. ASPs backup the data for you averting such a catastrophe.

The concerns often expressed by potential ASP users are network reliability, speed and security. The industry is making rapid progress in all the above areas ensuring that ASPs will be a permanent part of the legal software landscape.

If you have any questions about ILW.COM's ASP services, such as forms and case tracking, or would just like to learn more about this subject do write to us at support@ilw.com.
