We first spotted this infographic on Lawyer Tech Review in a post by Geri Dreiling titled: SaaS, Smart Phones & iPads: Lawyers Surveyed by ABA Reveal Tech Preferences. We’ve “pinned it” to a board on the social network Pinterest dedicated to legal industry infographics.
The data is based on the ABA’s 2011 Technology Survey and we thought it made for light reading on the Friday before the LegalTech show. According to this infographic:
- More attorneys use Blackberry than any other smart phone
- Just 20% of attorneys are using tablets – and the majority of those are iPads
- A little more than a quarter have downloaded “legal-specific apps”
In light of the cloud survey we just published, we also keyed in on some of the findings around “software as a service” or SaaS (note: the terms “cloud” and “SaaS” are often used interchangeably). In our research, “mobility and freedom of access” was cited as the top benefit of cloud-based services and that mirrors the findings here:
- Browser access from anywhere
- Access any time of day
- Lower cost and elimination of IT requirements
Note: This post has been updated to reflect that the data in this infographic is from the 2011 ABA Tech Survey. Originally we mistakenly stated it was data from the 2013 version of the survey. Many thanks to those for pointing out the error.
Here’s the complete infographic:
