"We are confident that this will help the sector move forward to a more modern approach"
The Link App has announced that it is seeking to drive the growth of the legaltech sector, by offering its product in free trials with no upfront charges.
The move will see the leading legal client experience platform deliver a 14 day trial to law firms, on an opt-in, no-obligation arrangement, completely flipping the usual legaltech approach on its head.
Founder and CEO Lauren Riley says: “The Link App is leading a new era in technology in law and so we want to be innovative in our approach.
“It’s very rare for legaltech companies to offer something like this, but as industry disruptors we are keen to help the law move forward, so are quite happy to move away from the traditional approach of charging up front.
The offer enables multiple users within a firm to use the app, giving full and unlimited access to the platform, to enable swift communication, secure storage and improved client communication.
Devised as an easy-to-use platform that reinvents a client’s experience of their legal transactions, The Link App enables lawyers to instant message their clients, share documents with them and arrange call backs, while clients benefit from regular, accessible case updates, push notifications and secure document storage.
Neil Quantick of Quantick Daley Solicitors comments: “Almost without exception, the legal IT sector remains blind to the real end user - the client of the solicitor. From a £10 McDonalds to online banking, the public live an IT led, instant and convenient life. And yet, the legal sector remains light years behind - with suppliers refusing to accept that there is a thirst for consumer access to legal services. Not only is The Link App disrupting that absurd assumption, but they’re so confident in their product they will let us trial it for free - a norm in other sectors, but usually an absolute no-no with legal sector software.”
Concludes Lauren: “This is a really great opportunity and something that we have created in direct response to customer and industry research. Paying upfront is not the way to encourage new technologies to be embraced - we are confident that this will help the sector move forward to a more modern approach and a better client service - in the same way other sectors have.”
