Grab and Add New Contacts Create a new contact in Abacus without typing?  Now you can! Just
highlight and copy any name and address from another program, document,
website, or signature block in an
email and ‘Add from Clipboard’ to have Abacus automatically create
a new contact record without you having to type the name and address.
Grab And Add new contacts
No Skipped BackupsMost backup systems skip files currently in use. When a staff
member forgets to log out of Abacus before leaving, it can mean
your most important backup data gets skipped. Never again! Now
Abacus can automatically log off users after hours so your backup
will be complete. Administrators can now easily log everyone off
at any time for system maintenance or updates.
Multiple Names and Matters
Side-by-Side
Ever wanted to have two name or matter screens up at the same
time?  Now you can.  Open two or more name, event, or matter windows
at the same time so you can easily compare records side-by-side
or have quick access to everyone’s data on a conference call.
Multiple Names and Matters
Lightning Fast Note and Event
Searches

Tired scrolling endlessly through notes and events, looking for the one you need?
With Lightening Fast Note and Event Searches, use Google-style syntax to find
notes and events quickly.  Results come up almost instantaneously.
Excel Spreadsheet IntegrationSet up any excel spreadsheet as a template, say for settlements,
or divorce support, and merge data from Abacus matters directly
into Excel with just a click. Link the spreadsheet to the matter
and client in Abacus just like any other document.
Excel Spreadsheet Integration
New PDF Report EngineEver wish that Abacus reports were as easy to view and manipulate
as PDF documents?  Now they are! All Abacus reports are now in
PDF format and easier to read, to zoom, to navigate, and have more
options for printing and fonts.

Document Control

Save-and-Log™ Document Organization
Stop searching for documents because they weren’t saved correctly.
Abacus now lets you establish a standard naming convention and
path for saving Word documents and Abacus forms so everyone in
your office gets it right automatically.  This eliminates manual
set-up of case folders and manual naming of case documents. No
more frustrating searches or having to re-create missing documents.
Save and Log
Drag and Drop Document Linking
Link any file to a name or matter simply by dragging it to the
name or matter.  The file is linked and pertinent information about
the file – file name, author, time, etc. – is saved.

Version 9 and go paperless.  Scan your
paper documents, convert them to PDF format, and link them to
the name and matter in Abacus.
