Over the past few years, I have been following the evolution of the “Web” and thinking about the purpose of corporate and law firm websites. What role does and should the website play in the business of a law firm or a professional organization. At Basha Systems, we have built Bashasys.com, a marketing website to explain the services we offer and our products. To that website we have added vertical market specific subdomains: Estateplanning.bashasys.com, a place for Estate Planning and Elderlaw attorneys, probateforms.bashasys.com, http://forum.nebar.com/EE/, a website for Nebraska probate attorneys, to support our Probate Systems V, bashasys.info, hotdocstips.bashasys.info, a blog of tips, techniques and tricks for HotDocs users, and bashasys.org, an automated support site. We are in the process of reorganizing and restructuring these sites to (1) make them easier to navigate, (2) easier to maintain, and (3) more current. We are adopting Web 2.0 technology to turn these websites into dynamic community resources
By community resources we mean to build into the core Basha Systems website a vitality and currency that gives the user a reason to come back, a place to go for all things document assembly, document automation, case management. While we could build “forums” – the easy way, our goal is to present distilled independent content, easy to digest, easy to find, and easy to use. Document Assembly and Practice Management are transformative technologies for the practice of law. In these rebuilt websites, we hope to convey the excitement, the thrill of accomplishment, and the energy of the community of document assembly programmers.
So what does Web 2.0. mean?
- Individual articles can be printed or emailed
- All articles on the website can be accessed by an RSS feed
- Dozens of videos, both training and walk-throughs
- Articles ranked by submission date, so you can see at a glance what is “new”.
- A reason to come back again and again.
KEEP POSTED … IT IS COMING SOON.
