But it will give you capacity to do more with less resources.
Recently, RMIT Online CEO Helen Souness shared her belief that many jobs of the future have one thing in common: Technology.
"Automation and augmentation are one of the big technological trends," Souness tells Together In Business. "They're slightly scary words — people see drones or cyborgs working beside us — but actually automation is our friend. It takes away boring, repetitive tasks.
The challenge with completing repetitive administration tasks is that mistakes can be made – especially when time is short. Technology won’t take over your role as a lawyer or conveyancer, but instead is here to support you to complete tasks quicker and with accuracy. In effect this gives you more time to grow your firm and develop stronger client relationships – something a robot will never be able to do.
Think about the human skills you do have – negotiation and communication for example and allow technology to support you in the other aspects of running your firm.

"Digital is only going to help humans thrive. As people change their perception from this scary world of cyborgs, to tools to help us be better, people's mindsets can also change and get more excited about the possibilities of tech." says Souness.
It is a common belief that the legal profession is reticent to embrace technology for fears of change and challenges with privacy and security. In reality, some technologies can offer safer options than current methods.
