Frequently Asked Questions

How can Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces help my law firm?

Albatross Cloud Suites can include hardware, infrastructure (i.e. network equipment), platforms, applications (like Adobe, Microsoft 365 and QuickBooks), Security, Monitoring, Help Desk, Training, and even Development services.

What is the price of Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces?

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 ($75/user/month), and for optional help desk services ($25/user/month).

Is Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces secure?

Although no platform or service is one-hundred percent secure, Albatross provides industry standard, or above, security that is monitored and regularly maintained. All information is encrypted while in-transit and at-rest, and regular back-ups are maintained in secure locations on well hardened servers. Specific information can be found on Albatross’ website.

Is Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces familiar with the legal industry?

Although Albatross Cloud does not limit itself to the legal industry, it does focus on it with its Legal Workspaces suite product.

Will Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces integrate with my current legal tech?

Although they can likely handle Apple products, Albatross Cloud Suites are built on Microsoft and Linux systems. Since they offer vendor support, they generally are an asset to managing your legal tech stack.

Is Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces future-proof?

Albatross Legal Workspaces is at the front-end of managed IT with their remote-forward workspaces.

How difficult is Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces to set up?

Each network is different and has different needs. So, it is impossible to standardize a time period for network set-up. Albatross Cloud, however, should be able to provide you with an estimate when you request a quote.

Can Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces help with other vendors?

Yes. As should be done by all Managed IT providers, Albatross will assist your law firm in dealing with other vendors that they or their products interact with.

Is Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces good for solos?

Albatross Legal Workspaces certainly can be helpful for solos, although many solo attorneys will not find the need for the level of networking and infrastructure provided.

Is Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces compatible with both PC and Mac?

While Albatross Legal Workspaces can likely handle Apple products, they are set up for Microsoft and Linux systems. They are very familiar with Microsoft 365, including their Azure (directory) services, SharePoint set-up and maintenance, and a host of other Microsoft services. You will likely find more success sticking to the PC services.

Additional Details about Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces

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 an 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.

Who Albatross Cloud Legal Workspaces is for

Albatross Cloud 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 unnecessary for them. Therefore, this may be more services than they need.
