Business Intelligence software is a means to an end – now you need to use it to improve profitability.

Monday, June 23rd, 2014 | BIPro | Scott Randall

The focus on Business Intelligence (BI) over the past couple of years has brought new insight to practice management and undoubtedly has contributed to more solid decision making in firms that have fully implemented it, but I would suggest it is time to use the data BI provides and take a hard look at how specific actions play out from a business and process perspective.

FileSite 9 Update 4 and Outlook 2010 error: “Outlook cannot display this view”

Tuesday, June 17th, 2014 | iManage/ FileSite | Mike Smith

When using FileSite 9 Update 4 with Outlook 2010 (up to date as of this post) it is possible to have view corruption on various FileSite folders.   When the error occurs, it will corrupt the ribbon (so you cannot even change the view) and remove various tabs.  You may or may not be able to click into another folder, but if you can you will be presented with the normal view.  Occasionally this may exhibit odd behavior such as displaying the FileSite “reading pane” as part of the ToDo bar, and not the Outlook window.

So what does vigilance look like? IE security flaw reminds us – vigilance looks boring and it will save you time, money and hassle.

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 | Managed Services, Technology Management | Scott Randall

I heeded the call, I left Windows XP behind after all those beautiful years together! Now that we find ourselves squarely on the other side of Windows XP “End of Life” Support, a vulnerability is uncovered that reminds us to remain vigilant and stay on top of patching. We preach it, we sell it and we can’t stop repeating it – sometimes, a lot of the time, the simple stuff saves the most time, money and effort.

What The Bradley Timepiece can teach us about inclusive design.

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014 | BIPro | Scott Randall

Last week I heard a story on NPR about an innovative piece of technology and design that is both functional and inclusive – and it is wristwatch. (They call it a timepiece because you don’t have to “watch” it all the time, I’ll explain.) The interview was profiling the origins of The Bradley by Eone which is a tactile timepiece designed to not just show the time but allows users to “feel” the time as well. The time can be seen or felt as two ball bearings are driven by magnets around the clock face. It was created in collaboration with people with vision loss but has proven just as popular with the sighted population. Maybe because it is so good looking and possibly because we want to know what time it is without having to look? A stroke of genius for those stuck in long meetings?

An anniversary for a business is always something to be proud of, especially considering the ups and downs we have had with the economy in the past 5 years.  Like many other businesses, we experienced tough times that were very challenging.  However, any savvy businessman or woman will tell you that it is during these testing times that the most innovative and creative survive.

Default Time Entry Narratives When Using Send and Save Function in Outlook.

Monday, December 30th, 2013 | Microsoft Office 2010, ProLaw Case Management | Mike Smith

When using ProLaw XII with the Outlook add-ins installed, you have the option to  add time entries to various functions in Outlook.  This can be done while profiling a document to Prolaw.  Once you enter the matter information, the time entry button is enabled.  Depending on your configuration and version, occasionally the time entry narrative will pre-populate with the notes from the document you are trying to profile.  This can be information such as email addresses or file names, and is not always wanted.

3 Things for Your Firm to Consider in 2014

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013 | Microsoft Exchange, Uncategorized, Windows 7 | Scott Randall

My dog – a one-year-old super-high-energy Weimaraner – is noisily cavorting through the office. This distraction, oddly, turned my thoughts to the IT dogs that are soon to wreak havoc (if they haven’t already) in many law firms.
