Albatross Legal Workspaces is a cloud-based, Managed IT program for lawyers, created by TekReach Solutions. They build, host, and manage law office networks on their own remote servers. With this, law office workers can use a laptop, desktop, tablet, mobile device, zero client, or thin client to securely connect to the office network from anywhere with an internet connection.

Since the network that TekReach hosts is a remote one, they can also provide standard IT services such as printer and peripheral set up, help desk solutions and vendor support, and network security services.

Albatross Legal Workspaces would be good for any office that is planning on existing in a completely remote environment. However, a virtual office setup is not required. Because of the added security of the remote desktops, and the general IT management ALW does it would still be a good solution for firms who have no intention of abandoning their office spaces.

Most solo practitioners and very small offices will find that the virtual network is not necessary for them. Therefore, this may be more services than they need.

Data Management
One of the main tasks a Managed IT provider will have is managing and safeguarding your client and office information. You'll want to be sure you do your due diligence here to ensure your data is both secure from 3rd party access, and from inadvertent destruction.
Data Location
  • Cloud
  • Hybrid
Data Storage
  • Private Cloud
Data Backups
Will the Provider handle complete data back-ups of your system for you on a regular schedule. If a Provider does not, you may need to look into a 3rd party who can integrate with them.
Data Security
Does the Provider use at least 256bit SSL encryption both at-rest and in-transit?
User Experience
Managed IT is not just about creating the infrastructure upon which your network is built. It is about making sure you are using it to the best of your ability, as well. Many Providers have a help desk you can contact with issues, and some even offer Vendor Support where they help you manage your relationships with other 3rd party tech providers (ex. Internet Provider).

Additional Details About TekReach’s Solution

Remote Desktop Environment tour.

Remote Desktop Protocol

Albatross Legal Workspaces is built to use Microsoft’s Remote Desktop Protocol. This means that the connection is snappier and more comprehensive than browser-based remote desktop services like LogMeIn, Splashtop, or RemotePC. Additionally, loading a RDP connection on an existing Windows based computer is just a matter of downloading the RDP file, running it, and then logging in. After this, you’ll feel like you’re sitting in front of the remote computer—no bezel, no browser frame, just the remote computer’s desktop.

TekReach Help Desk

A good IT partner will have an ongoing relationship with your firm. You shouldn’t expect to build your infrastructure, and then never see your provider again. To that end, TekReach Solutions offers Help Desk services for their Albatross Legal Workspaces users for an additional monthly fee.

Vendor Support

Beyond simple Help Desk services, TekReach Solutions can also help their clients with their other 3rd party vendors. They can help you with your Internet Provider, your VoIP software, and even Microsoft.

Pricing

Although many workspaces, like AWS, charge by the amount of time you use the machines, Albatross simply charges a monthly fee. The initial price of $250/month is for a base usage of two users. They then charge for each additional user, and for help desk services.

Base Charge (2 Users)$250/month
