Synergy Improves Communications

LAW FIRMS and corporate legal departments can dramatically improve communications and productivity, according to Stratford, Conn.'s Dictaphone Corp., by using synergy, the company's new integrated communication and messaging system.

Designed to coordinate and organize key functions in today's automated law office, synergy puts voice mail, e-mail and fax services in one convenient location, Dictaphone says, allowing lawyers to concentrate on billable work instead of time-consuming information management. Messages are listed graphically by synergy, along with the name of the sender and the subject of the message, according to the company, which notes that unlike most voice-mail systems, synergy allows users to retrieve messages in any order.

The system also offers convenient message-forwarding with multi-media features, Dictaphone explains. Messages can be forwarded to other system users with recorded voice or typed notes attached, the company says, and as an added security feature, messages may be marked "non-forwardable" when sent to another user.

PowerLink Guides Transactions

LAWYERS whose practices involve corporate transactions have a dynamic new source of guidance from Eagan, Minn.'s West Group--Business Transactions PowerLink: The Business Life-Cycle Practice System, which the company says is a sophisticated CD-ROM that guides lawyers through the myriad transactions that arise in the life-cycle of a business.

The product, West explains, is designed to guide the lawyer through every step of the process with transaction summaries that explain the substance and suitability of each event; transactional memorandums analyzing the business, legal and tax consequences relevant to each transaction; master forms with commentary; checklists; and an extensive library of specialty forms--all with the goal of helping the user "do the deal."
