While I’m still digesting all the great new products, there were a few vendors making announcements about new products, features and integrations. So here is a summary of some of their announcements. And then there’s the ever popular LegalTypist – home to the SuperPass for TechShow. Plan on going to 2014 TechShow and save $150 with the SuperPass – only available through LegalTypist.
LegalTypist – Your legal virtual assistant and legal transcription service for firms of all sizes, but fills a great need for the solo/small firm attorney. And one exciting thing for me was I actually got to meet Ms. LegalTypist – Andrea Cannavina. Until TechShow, for me, just a friendly and engaging Tweeter. Andrea has created a product for law firms of all sizes – a scalable digital workflow accessible from any telephone or internet connection that is as easy for the staff to use as it is on the firm to implement. Try it for free – you just may free yourself up to do more tweeting with Andrea.
Clio announced 2 new integrations with Xero and NetDocuments. After 5 years in business providing small firms an affordable solution, this opens the door for Clio to be ready for larger law firms. NetDocuments is a popular document management system for mid to large size firms. A cloud-based document management system, every time you open or save a document, you now have the option to be doing it with NetDocuments. So this integration gives larger firms, not using DropBox or Box, a reason to look closer at Clio for their practice management solution. Xero is a cloud-based accounting package that many had never heard of until Clio announced its integration. For current clients using QuickBooks, a conversion guide is available.
Building upon a well recognized brand in the legal community, Rocket Matter announced at TechShow it’s new comprehensive Internet marketing platform – RocketX1. Rocket X1 consolidates online marketing services offered by multiple agencies, eliminating the need to individually hire separate expertise – it’s a one-stop shop approach. The feature I was most impressed was the systems in place to measure progress and ROI: checklists, deadlines, analytics, and milestones to keep the firm on track. The cost, well it’s not cheap but it is comparable to what other vendors might charge and RocketX1 customers get a website, a blog, SEO optimization, PR, graphic design, strategic consulting and more in a single package. Still in beta, results won’t be out for a few months.
Hope you find the time to check out these products and see how you can use them in your practice. Free demos are always available. And if I may add a shameless plug – I am now certified in both Clio and RocketMatter. So consider contacting me for more information about these 2 great cloud based law practice management solutions.
