Abacus Law Adds Document Tools

ABACUS Data Systems Inc. has enhanced its popular Abacus Law case management software, adding new features to help lawyers create and manage documents in the new version, Abacus Law Version 12, says the San Diego based-company.

Abacus says that the program's Document Control feature contains three components: Document Creation, Document Scheduling and Document Tracking ­ which interact to form a powerful management tool. The scheduling function automatically calendars and generates documents, which may be scheduled individually or generated from a rule, says Abacus. Rule sets can be purchased for local or federal courts or user-defined, the company explains.

Document Creation rapidly retrieves information stored in Abacus Law's names and matters files and merges it with a document using WordPerfect or Word, says the company. Document Tracking links documents to names and matters for retrieval, it adds.

Boomerang 2.0 Incorporates ViaVoice

DICTAPHONE Corp.'s latest version of its Windows 95-based voice messaging and dictation system, Boomerang 2.0, now incorporates IBM's ViaVoice Transcription speech recognition software, the company has announced.

Lawyers and other professionals can use the system to record voice documents and either convert them to text or send them as voice messages via e-mail, says Dictaphone, which is headquartered in Stratford, Conn.

Boomerang includes a hand-held microphone with single action slide control for recording and audio playback, says the company.

Boomerang is a "plug-and-play" program that installs easily and operates in any Windows 95 environment, Dictaphone advises. It uses industry standard Windows e-mail protocols to send voice or text documents to any networked PC, it adds. Dictated files can be converted to text or e-mailed in real time for immediate use, or saved for convenient batch processing, says Dictaphone.
