Today, the day after history was again made with the reelection of the first African American President of the U.S., the news broke from the email hosting space that Gavel & Gown Software Inc., a provider of practice management software for the legal industry, unveiled its Web-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) offering. Coined the Amicus Cloud, the offering was developed with lawyers specifically in mind. Boasting features found within email hosting solution Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange, this capability will enable users to view their contacts and calendars from any Internet browser, whether it is from their smartphone, tablet or PC.
Additionally, due to the fact that both Outlook and Exchange are now powered by the Amicus Cloud, no synchronization is needed between mail functions and the practice management service, according to a recent related article.
Ron Collins, president at Gavel & Gown Software Inc., added in a statement, “We are tremendously excited about Amicus Cloud. We have taken all the lessons learned in 20 years of providing the best practice management for lawyers, and can now deliver them in a completely new way on the cloud.”
Touted as one of the most secure, scalable and reliable platforms currently on the market, this suite can successfully power fully automated actions based on specific standards enacted by the e-mail sender. Also, billing and time functionality is provided via the Amicus cloud, which enables customers to quickly fill billing-related issues with upper management.
Intermedia (News - Alert) will be hosting this product and recently sat down with TMCnet to discuss the special promotion it just launched to help those affected by hurricane Sandy.
Because the company has been around for quite some time, it has been through plenty of natural disasters, and as a result has seen firsthand that communication often breaks down during these storms.
“That is clearly what happened with Sandy and one advantage we provide is a very strong infrastructure. Although we can’t guarantee that there wouldn’t be an outage, the likelihood is significantly less than a company using traditional means. For us, it is something we take very seriously and we make sure that we have generators and all back up mechanisms in place to decrease the likelihood of an outage,” Luis Curet, vice president of Direct Sales, Intermedia commented.
