DOCS Esq., from PC DOCS Inc. of Burlington, Mass.: Addressing the needs of small to mid-sized firms, PC DOCS inaugurates this version of its popular DOCS Open document-management product, the company has announced. It is designed for firms that want functions such as document check-in/check-out, version control and audit trails, but do not need extensive customization and advanced security options, the company says.

DOCS Esq. can be easily integrated with CyberDOCS, giving users Web access to documents, as well as DOCS Imaging to capture single or multi-page images for desktop viewing, the company reports. DOCS Esq. users can upgrade to DOCS Open with no conversion or re-training required, PC DOCS says.

TrialWorks97, from Legal Vision Inc. of Miami: According to the company, TrialWorks97 was designed to harness the power of Microsoft Outlook for law firms through an interface that looks like every lawyer's file system.

TrialWorks Version 3.1 adds the new Fast Track docket system that enables firms to automatically calculate deadlines based on local and state rules, or to establish deadlines for customary court orders.
