Iconect Links Concordance

ICONECT LLC, of Ontario, Canada, has debuted Iconect, a Web browser interface to the Concordance Information Retrieval System (developed by Dataflight Software Inc.) The Iconect server system is ideal for large, multiparty litigation, the companies explain. Using the secure, browser-based system, parties can collaborate on information held in Concordance databases on firm servers, via Intranet or Extranet formats. The Iconect interface allows users to take advantage of Concordance functionalities, including searches by date, full text or specific fields; tag creations; imaging launching, and more.

Time and Billing

Timeslips Goes Web, Ships v10

SAGE U.S. Holdings Inc., based in Dallas, is now shipping Timeslips 10, and has also announced the launch of its first Internet-based service.

Version 10, designed to assist lawyers, accountants, consultants and other service professionals, offers time and expense services, allowing creation of customized bills. Users can generate management reports to support budget and accounting processes.

A new "Bank Deposit Slip" function has been added for better payment tracking, says Sage. As part of that feature, a new "General Ledger" transfer to multiple accounts receivable function has been added. Customers can identify a particular bank as a recipient of a check.

Timeslips eCenter has been created to help users combine the convenience of the Internet with Timeslips features.

The password protected program allows professionals to track time and expenses on any computer that has Internet access, regardless of whether the computer is loaded with the Timeslips software.

This allows firms to track time and expenses remotely for an unlimited number of timekeepers, says Sage.

Users can then create customized invoices, rather than use a "one size fits all" format offered by some Web-based programs, reports Sage.

Handheld Devices

Palm Adds Color Display

PALM Inc. has gone technicolor, with its new Palm IIIc handheld computer. The unit offers a color display, and 8 MB of memory.

Batteries are always a prime concern for users: Palm says the charge will last about two weeks, and explains that the batteries recharge, like a cell phone, when the unit sits in its desktop cradle.

Palm also debuted its new Palm IIIxe -- with 8 MB memory and offering the new Palm OS 3.5 -- and unveiled its new full-size, collapsible, lightweight Palm Portable Keyboard.
