The legal world is changing – and the creation of an empowered mobile workforce is key to that change. Decentralizing the workplace and creating a world where no-one is ever “unplugged” is one of the key factors shaping the world of work in 2016. Lawyers, like other high-status professionals, are increasingly expected to be flexible, accessible, and available on a moment’s notice, no matter where they are.
Yet, as Legaltech News recently covered, this decentralization comes with its own data security risks.
Leasing is a financial strategy which allows your firm to roll out the best mobile devices available, while providing you with strong asset tracking to mitigate risk. Mobile lawyers will no longer have to risk working with outdated, aging devices which are vulnerable to hacks or failure – and asset tracking helps to control the threat posed by a lost or stolen device.
As we move to an increasingly mobile legal world, these concerns will be more crucial than ever to law firms’ operations. We encourage you to read the full Legaltech News piece, or click here, and to contact CoreTech at 866.758.2673 to see how leasing can complement your firm’s mobile policies.

The Technology of Higher Education
The historic disconnect between higher education and the needs of the labor market is a data problem. In the past, data translating the discrete skills or competencies that employers need was not easily available or meaningful to faculty who create courses, or the students who take them.
Meanwhile, hiring managers have consistently relied on signals supported by anecdotal evidence, at best — for example, assuming that philosophy majors from Brown made terrific analysts, or that teachers with master’s degrees performed better in the classroom.
Today, technology is changing the relationship between education and the workforce in four distinct ways.

Emerging Medical Technologies are Changing Healthcare
Emerging technologies are changing the way care is delivered and enabling providers to stay continuously connected with patients wherever they may be — or at least connected to the devices that indicate whether a patient is abiding by prescription protocols, getting up and about safely, and eating regularly.
“With new technology, surgeons will have hands-free, immediate access to critical information, checklists and reminders specific to injury categories that will greatly assist our efforts to provide effective, timely care that saves lives.”
Christoph R. Kaufmann, M.D.
