Clio: Practice Management Software

Clio gets props for being among the first practice management software programs to offer a cloud-based option, which says something for its innovation and commitment to evolving technology.  More evidence of this is the fact that Clio is friendly with integrations, making it compabible with a number of other programs including Google Apps, Dropbox, Box, NetDocuments and more. Clio also synchronizes well with Google and Outlook calendars. Clio also has an impressive user interface, which makes it intuitive and easy to use.  Speaking of ease...

Personal Scanners for the Solo Practice

Personal Scanners for the Solo Practice

Rekall encourages firms to move toward a paperless (or as close as you can get!) work environment.  The NeatConnect cloud scanner is definitely a step in the right direction in your quest to minimize the use of paper (for the environment and for your sanity). What is a cloud scanner?  Believe it or not, you don’t even need a computer to use the NeatConnect cloud scanner.  Instead, you can scan documents and send them directly to a cloud-based storage system rather than to your computer’s hard drive.  Since the documents aren’t going...

Cloud-Based Storage Options for Solo Practices

Cloud-Based Storage Options for Solo Practices

Dropbox is a fine option for cloud-based storage and we certainly think it’s the right choice for small businesses out there. Dropbox gets credit for being the first of its kind. But today this clever software has many competitors. And as with all good business, when there’s competition, there’s the ability to shop around. Lawyerist.com recently reviewed a few Dropbox alternatives for small and solo firms.  Here’s a summary of what they had to say about three. Option 1: SpiderOak What You Get & What it Costs: 2 GB of storage for...

What the heck is Heartbleed?

What the heck is Heartbleed?

Heartbleed is a term that caught our attention right away.  It sounds serious.  It sounds dangerous.  Turns out, it’s both. Heartbleed is essentially leaky (hence the name) website encryption. Have you ever noticed that some sites you visit (like Google, for example) start with “http” while other sites, like hopefully your bank’s login page, start with “https”?  The difference of that “s” is supposed to be security.  When a site starts with “https”, that site is using encryption in order to protect information that you...

Nuance’s Power PDF for Attorneys

Nuance’s Power PDF for Attorneys

Adobe is a name most people trust.  But it’s also a name most people rightfully associate with high costs.  Adobe Acrobat Professional, which is pretty awesome, comes in over $400, which is a hefty price tag for some small firms. We wouldn’t recommend holding your breath and waiting for Adobe to come down in price.  I think we all know that’s never going to happen. If the $400 price tag is doable for you, you might want to stick with Adobe.  However, for those of you interested in a more affordable alternative, Nuance Power PDF...

Viivo Combines Security with the Cloud

We all thought secure meant secure until the situation at Target came about and then Heartbleed.  Now we’re all stepping it up a notch to make sure our secure data is really and truly secure. Viivo is a great option that can help you achieve this.  Viivo encrypts files before it stores them in your cloud-based server such as Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, and Drive. For personal use, there’s no charge, unless you want mobile access, which is just $4.99 per month. Using Viivo is as easy as dragging files to folder, which I’m willing to bet you...

These days, almost everyone has a website.  Your mom might.  Your next door neighbor… Certainly your firm needs to have one too.  If you don’t have a website, you’re almost definitely missing out on business.

Dropbox’s Features in a Nutshell

Dropbox’s Features in a Nutshell

Dropbox is rumored to still be the most popular online file storage option. Perhaps this is for good reason? You’ve heard the word plenty, but what exactly is Dropbox?  Their website sums it up best: “Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily.” Of course that’s quite a simplification, but you get the gist. Dropbox really is easy to use and that’s probably why so many firms are still using it to organize their documents.  All you need is a Dropbox account and then you...

IE’s Security Flaw, What Law Firms Need to Know

News of IE’s security flaw was all over the internet and certainly didn’t bring IE much good press. But what’s behind this security flaw and what do you need to know and do? For those of you who understand the workings of web browsers, the vulnerability is what’s considered a remote code vulnerability, meaning it has to do with the way IE “accesses an object in memory that has been deleted or not properly allocated,” according to Microsoft. For those of you who don’t understand or care to understand the workings of web browsers,...

How to Stay Anonymous Online

With technology comes innovation…including by pesky organizations downright determined to advertise to you. Lawyerist.com put out an article highlighting ways that you can maintain a more discreet identity online.  We’ll provide you with a high level look at their suggestions. Their first recommendation is to turn on Do Not Track in whatever browsers you use.  This is a polite way of asking advertisers to please leave you alone.  That’s all it is though, and they may (and some certainly will) ignore that request.  But, it’ll...
