Mystery Solved!

Re: In the August Law Technology News letters column, George Cunningham asked for information on a docketing software called CPI. We received numerous responses -- many thanks!

Thanks also to Florence Barth, William E. Benson, David Ting, and Elizabeth L. Andrews, for echoing some of these replies.

I ran the search "Docketing NEAR software AND CPI" on Alta Vista's advanced search page.

I found Computer Packages, Inc.'s Patent and Trademark docketing software at

John Huffer
Nexplor Corp.
Carlsbad, Calif.

I am aware of a patent & trademark firm here in New York City that uses a proprietary, Access-based docketing system developed for them by a consultant named C.P.I. They refer to it as "C.P.I."

The same consultant, I believe, has developed databases for other firms.

Your reader may be referring to a mortgage servicing software which is based on mortgage industry electronic data interchange (EDI) standards.

My firm provides representation to several national mortgage companies and I would estimate that at least 40 percent of our clients use a "C.P.I." or a "C.P.I.- related" system in some aspect of their loan servicing departments.

Although C.P.I. systems can include a module for interfacing with outside attorneys, I am currently unaware of any docketing features. If this sounds like it maybe related to what your reader was looking for, the following Web site would be a good place to start:

Not only does C.P.I. have a docketing software package, but they also provide an annuity payment service.

Our company has used C.P.I for many years and they are an excellent company. They offer complete training on their software packages as well as "help" support.
