Leading with innovation saved LCS the cost of office space, a $15,000 to $25,000 expense for 2010, and provided their clients with better, faster service at the same time.
When LCS needed an office to house critical documentation, the partners chose the cloud instead of a commercial office building. LCS is using new tools, innovative internal practices, and the kind of cloud computing applications it frequently recommends to clients to save the cost and the static location drawbacks of a physical office.
LCS’ uses Box.net to consolidate and secure its paperwork in one location and Apple’s iPad as a collaboration tool for meetings, connection and conversation, whenever and wherever that might be.
The value of this innovation and efficiency was proven recently when LCS cofounder, Steve Simonetto, was waiting for a doctor’s appointment and received an urgent client request. Instead of the usual business delays of needing to get to the office to locate the paperwork, scan and Email it later, Steve logged on to Box.net from his iPad right in the waiting room and the document was available to the client within seconds of the phone call.
LCS’ elite technical team takes a “holistic” approach to problem solving by addressing the business problem first and then looking at the technical solutions.
