**Transcript of a webinar on 5 Virtual Collaboration Tools for Law Firms**

**Introduction**

Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to our webinar on 5 Virtual Collaboration Tools for Law Firms. I’m Cameron, and I’ll be your host today. We’re excited to have you here, and we appreciate you taking the time to learn more about these essential tools.

We’ll be discussing the following five tools:

* Internal chat

* E-signature

* Intake forms

* Two-way texting

* Text message reminders

We’ll be hearing from our two expert panelists, Benson Varghese, a criminal defense attorney and satisfied MyCase customer, and Vincent Pugliese, a product manager at MyCase.

**Internal Chat**

Our first tool is internal chat. This is a great way for attorneys and staff to communicate with each other quickly and easily. It’s also a great way to keep track of conversations and ensure that everyone is on the same page.

**E-signature**

E-signatures are another essential tool for law firms. They allow you to prepare and sign routine documents quickly and easily. This is especially important for documents that require multiple signatures, as it eliminates the need for printing, scanning, and mailing documents.

**Intake forms**

Intake forms are a great way to get supplementary information on a case for a client. They can also be used as a way to onboard potential clients and make sure that you have all the necessary information before getting into the nitty-gritty.

**Two-way texting**

Two-way texting is a great way to communicate with clients who don’t use email or clients who would just prefer using text messaging. You can quickly connect with clients and leads securely, keep a centralized record of your text communications, and anonymize your cell phone number.

**Text message reminders**

Text message reminders are a great way to get paid faster. They can be used to remind clients that their bills are due or that they have a payment due date. They can also be used to automatically send payment links to clients.
