3 Driving Factors to Implement an Automated SOP Solution

The role of the registered agent managing service of process is really to serve as the traffic cop, making sure that a lawsuit is sent timely and accurately to the correct party. There are three primary factors that drive the decision of a company to implement an automated solution for their SOP documents.

  • The first is volume for a particular type of lawsuit (such as garnishments) where they’re experiencing heavy volume year in year out.
  • Second, they’re looking for whether they use an outside third party for the processing or response to those documents. Using the example of garnishments, do they send it to an outside payroll provider?
  • Third, an important consideration is whether the company has experienced negative consequences due to the mishandling of a particular type of lawsuit. There are two primary repercussions if a lawsuit is not handled timely or accurately. The worst potential repercussion is that there is a default judgement. But what happens more frequently is if the lawsuit is not handled properly, the company may not have adequate time in order to respond in a proper manner in an individual case.
