What consultants to law firms are saying about AbacusLaw
AbacusLaw software provides excellent utilities for conversion from other products. As a conversion specialist I am familiar with the competition. In most instances, I am able to select contacts, matters, and calendar items and, after cleaning up the data, import these records directly into AbacusLaw in less than 4 hours. This "leg up" on data entry allows law firms to hit the ground running and use AbacusLaw software's advanced features right away. Almost every program currently on the market has an export or "print to pdf" function, so whatever you are using, conversion to AbacusLaw software is a viable alternative."

AbacusLaw is both structured and flexible with robust standard capabilities. One firm may find exceptional value in just managing calendars and contacts, and the next may use rules to document their processes and educate the staff in law. Form generation is a real time saver for many firms, and the reporting capabilities help office managers determine the productivity of everyone on the team. AbacusLaw can help any firm embrace what makes them unique, while ensuring that they stay within required guidelines (such as with trust accounting). As I see it, AbacusLaw increases productivity while lowering "

There are several aspects of Abacus that stand out before you even begin to consider the features. One is the extreme reliability of the data. It's pretty much a given that it will not get corrupted. Another is its speed. With hundreds of matters linked to thousands of contacts, if you print a report listing each matter and all contacts and their role related to each matter, it begins printing almost immediately, and will be finished with the report before some of the other available choices even begin to print."

Imagine scheduling a depo or hearing in the AbacusLaw calendar, clicking a button, and 10 seconds later, your depo/hearing letter is typed, printed and ready to mail! Once your documents are set up to merge with Word, WordPerfect or AbacusLaw's own PDF filler, you can create a letter, pleading, fax cover sheet, retainer agreement, any fillable PDF, etc., in seconds. AbacusLaw allows you to pull any information from Events, Contacts, Matters, Notes and Court info into one document. Generating documents with data already typed by your staff is a huge time-saving opportunity - and where you save time, you save money."

Most practice management packages include the ability to create merged documents. Suppose I need to print out a document 2 days after meeting with a client for the first time. In other packages, I would have to put an event or to-do on my calendar to remind me to go to the document creation section and create the document. In Abacus, however, I can set the date to produce the document and associate it with the actual document form. On the scheduled date, all documents scheduled for production can be produced in a single step."

Many attorneys have wrestled with how best to preserve email correspondence regarding cases. Save it (with dubious formatting results)? Print it (and defeat the purpose of electronic communication)? Well, the new feature creating a link between Abacus Law and Outlook is producing rave reviews from my clients! The simplicity of access with the new 'Emails' tab has simplified the task of tracking case-related emails."

AbacusLaw has always (in my opinion) been the best practice manager available. The Outlook link saves so much time looking for email messages sent or received; I don't know how anyone can get along without it."

For me, the most valuable feature of AbacusLaw is its flexibility. Unlike most other programs, AbacusLaw allows you, if you desire, to customize screens, timelines, calendars & reports."
