A few months ago Gavel & Gown, the maker of Amicus Attorney software was acquired by the owners of Abacus. At that time things continued as they had been, with the exception of Ron Collins at the helm of Gavel & Gown. Now big changes have been announced. You should be getting formal notification but here are the high level changes.
Amicus Attorney Small Firm and Credenza software are being discontinued. This is not a big surprise as Gavel & Gown had been encouraging users to move to Amicus Cloud or upgrade to Amicus Attorney Premium, and development on these products had slowed in recent years. If you are using either product, please contact us for a no obligation discussion of your options. For 30 days, free migration is being offered to Small Firm customers. The 30 days is effective starting today (August 12). For users of Credenza, 60 days after your August 2016 renewal date the data will become read only.
For users of Amicus Attorney Premium edition the announcement is that, effective immediately, Amicus Attorney Premium edition will only be available on a subscription basis. This means if you want to upgrade, or add licenses to your current version, you must move to the subscription basis. The subscription version will include Amicus Advantage support and Amicus Anywhere access. Users of Amicus Attorney Premium with a subscription for 10 or less users will be able to run on their own on premises server. Larger firms will need to run on Abacus Private Cloud. We are happy to speak with you about how these change will impact your firm and to provide pricing.
This announcement is new and information is still developing. Please call Caren at 203-254-7736 for specifics on how it impacts you.
