Smokeball - legal practice manage app

What is Smokeball software? It's a legal practice management app for small Australian legal practices. We think Smokeballs cloud based plus local client based approach covers all bases and will allow your law practice to excel into the 21st century. 

Cyberkite has partnered with Smokeball Australia to provide you with simple casual "as needed" IT Support to help keep the IT setups stable around the Smokeball software. We also get referred by Smokeball on client support issues that require escalation / second air of technical eyes to resolve.

Below are our policies that law firms ask us before engaging with us:

 

Note to Smokeball Customers - IT Support tickets: If you have been asked by Smokeball to book a session with Cyberkite to assist in resolving IT hardware/apps issues to assist in having a better experience when using Smokeball please book an "IT & Cybersecurity remotely" session above or via the Book a session page. In the booking details on the booking form if you need more time than 30 minutes please mention length of time you want to allocate to troubleshoot in the "Anticipated Duration" field. We may also suggest that the issue requires more time. Support desk is open Mon - Fri 9am to 5pm Melbourne time. 

Note to Smokeball customers - IT migrations / procurement / planning: we do not provide IT migration services eg: migrating from other mailboxes over to Microsoft 365 Outlook / Exchange and we don't offer IT sales. But we have extensive experience in IT migrations, IT product purchasing  and we can help plan out what needs to be done in a IT consultation session which you can book at the top of this page or via Book a session page.

Why upgrade IT at your Law Firm?

Are you stuck saving physical paper documents in archival cupboards and paying loads of money to archival companies? We can only imagine the problems you face running a law practice from fictional sitcoms like Suits and from talking to our existing law firm customers. For example did you know that 58% of law firms in US stored data on the cloud in 2020? Is your law firm planning to do the same?  

The other reason why it's important for law firms to update their IT is to comply with law societies and associations that they are part of and government regulations on data protections. See the list of IT guidelines from law societies and associations per state in Australia, as well as any government requirements.

 

As an owner or manager of a law firm you no doubt would agree that times have changed and the good old fashioned paper based approach is no longer affordable or full proof, especially during pandemics and increasing natural disasters. 

Select the Detailed upgrade guide or Book IT Consultation with Cyberkite to discover what's needed to get your law firm up to scratch when it comes to IT & Cybersecurity and to be compatible with software like Smokeball or LEAP.Cyberkite can assist you in planning your hardware and software upgrade to work better with Smokeball. And to plan to prepare to switch over to Smokeball.
