Business Challenge

Technology to Keep Up With Growing Caseload and Workforce

Having used AbacusLaw successfully for over 15 years, Reiner, & Slaughter found themselves with a growing caseload and workforce. To meet the increased demands, they needed help from Abacus to gain efficiencies and re-evaluate their workflows to take advantage of the numerous enhancements in the latest versions of AbacusLaw.

The Solution

Upgrade to AbacusLaw brings immediate results

Immediately after upgrading to the new version of AbacusLaw, the firm saw measured results. A move to Abacus Private Cloud brought greater collaboration among the firm, along with the ability to connect and access systems remotely.

“AbacusLaw facilitates greater collaboration for our office. With employees who work remote, the ability to link all emails to the client file makes it easy for anyone in our office to know the current status of a case to address client inquiries.”

The Results

Format that works best for them

The new legal calendaring system, coupled with enhanced reporting capabilities, has helped to further streamline scheduling and ensures that everyone knows where they need to be, when.

“The calendar rules are just phenomenal. When we schedule a trial, all deadlines and events are automatically calendared for us. I can easily print and email the calendar to the attorneys in the format that works best for them. The calendar rules ensure that everyone in our office does this in a uniform, consistent manner, helping to avoid any unintended errors.”

The integration with Office 365, running inside the firm’s Abacus Private Cloud virtual desktop environment, keeps everyone on the same page. Literally.
