The message this year is mobility and workflow. We’ll focus on Amicus Premium Edition here but Amicus Small Firm has also received improvements.
Do you ever leave your office and then realize you don’t have a document you need. With Amicus Premium Edition 2014 your documents are accessible with Amicus Anywhere. Access your documents anywhere with a web browser. Your documents remain secure at your office but you can get to them. Alternatively, you can use the new integration with Dropbox to get your documents when you need them.
Need to see what you have to do? The new interactive home page helps draw you to important items more quickly.
With Amicus Anywhere you can see your calendar and contacts from any browser. However, many user want data synchronized to their mobile device. With Amicus Attorney Premium Edition 2014 you have more choices. In additional to the traditional Outlook link or Google synchronization we now have Direct integration with Exchange. One note on this new feature – my early testing has shown that, at this time, dashes and other non-numeric characters may be stripped from phone numbers when direct integration with exchange is first turned on. The phone numbers are still there but they don’t look quite as nice. Fixing them is a good exercise for while you are waiting on hold.
Is your contacts list long and unmanageable? Are there contacts that you need to keep on the list but really don’t want to see. The new feature to hide inactive contacts will allow you to clean up your list without worrying about losing conflict checking or history.
If you bill for time, or just want to track your productivity, new enhancements in Amicus Attorney can help. You can now see a visual snapshot of your performance with graphical time sheets. If a picture is worth a thousand words this should be very helpful in staying on track. There’s also a new time entry summary to help identify lost billing opportunities and make sure everything is posted.
If you are using Amicus Premium Billing you can get paid faster as you can now mass email bills. The bills reach your clients more quickly allowing them to pay you sooner.
