Lawyers Improve Productivity with New, Intuitive Document Assembly Module in Online Collaboration System from Elfly Technologies

December 6th, 2010

One of our clients has an exciting service for lawyers and non-profits:

NEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Legal teams work smarter, not harder, with the new document assembly module of Elfly, a real-time, online collaborative case management system from Elfly Technologies. Elfly provides law firms with tools to manage client records, work logs, appointments, tasks and documents.

Secure Accessibility Features

One of the system’s unique features is the fact that the program and client records are all stored on Elfly’s secure servers, which can be accessed by legal teams from any computer. This feature offers several benefits over traditional hard-disk based systems including:

— Hassle free: Online-based Elfly requires no software on your side and minimal hardware requirements.

— Readily accessible from anywhere in the world.

— Significantly lower IT cost. We maintain the system so you don’t have to.

— Always up-to-date. Elfly system is updated in real time.

— Better security against data loss with automated backups.

— Military-grade security against data intrusion with trusted SSL.

The database can be updated from a courtroom, client site, or vacation retreat and the team has immediate accessibility to the most up-to-date version of the client records in a totally secure environment.

“The software is housed in our secure private cloud,” said Richard Lin, president of Elfly Technologies. “It has many advantages including better service, lower IT cost, reduced risk, and more productivity.”

“Elfly keeps our team always connected across time and locations,” said Hedwin Salmen-Navarro, Esq. “I can be on a trip out of the country and still work as I do in the office.”

Document Assembly Features

Elfly document assembly features significantly cut time spent producing legal documents, boost productivity, eliminate manual typesetting, reduce typographic errors, and minimize the need to re-enter the same information. In addition, Elfly can process complex logic to meet your most stringent needs in documents. Documents are assembled in PDF format to ensure it prints the same wherever they go, and it allows Elfly to offer professional document design services.

“We understand that your documents are the face of your practice,” said Lin. “Our system delivers unprecedented results. We’re pushing the envelope of document assembly technology.”

“We have a lengthy retainer document that took 20 minutes to prepare. Now with Elfly, it takes me less than 30 seconds,” said Eva Lam, an administrator at Salmen-Navarro Associates, “and our documents look stunning with Elfly’s professional design.”

Elfly features integrated Forms Automation. Filling out forms in Elfly is easy and intuitive. You get to see the familiar forms, and the fields are automatically populated from the database. If you know how to fill in a form by hand, then you know how to fill it in using Elfly. The only difference is that Elfly can do it much faster. Once you filled out one form, the information will be stored and made available to other forms and documents.

“We believe in software adapting to business, not business adapting to software,” Lin said. “We will make sure it is painless to implement our system.”

Elfly is specifically designed for today’s most demanding knowledge workers. The applications of Elfly range from case management at law firms to coordinating projects in non-profit organizations.

“Elfly is addictively easy-to-use. It’s a productivity power tool: Less time getting to the case. More time working on the case,” said Alfanso Ramos, Esq., who uses Elfly.

“Lawyers can collaborate better with Elfly and manage cases with zero friction. Hundreds of teams use Elfly to collaborate and manage cases online,” said Lin. “Every day the world’s most demanding offices in the United States depend on Elfly. It is the top choice for law firms and non-profit organizations.”

Having problems with your SIP telephone from home?

November 21st, 2010

I decided to bring one of the new Aastra 9480i IP telephones home and it would not work.  At first I blamed Time Warner Cable, afterall, I have had more problems with my cable broadband in the past year than I ever had with dialup and the first time I attempted to bypass my router I was unable to get my telephone to work.

Long story short, if you have a router at home and you can not get your SIP device working check to see if your router has “SIP ALG” enabled.  If it does, chances are that is the problem- it seems that many routers actually break SIP with this “helpful” feature.   After disabling SIP ALG I was able to place and receive calls without any problems.


Avaya and Skype Announce Strategic Agreement

September 30th, 2010
Avaya and Skype Sign Strategic Agreement for Business Communications and Collaboration Solutions
Agreement includes plans for industry-first federation between Avaya and Skype communication platforms
For Immediate Release: 29-Sep-2010

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. and LUXEMBOURG – Avaya, a global leader in enterprise communications systems, software and services, and Skype today announced a strategic agreement to deliver innovative, real-time communications and collaboration solutions to businesses of all sizes. The multi-phase deal includes both go-to-market and an industry-first, joint technology integration that seeks to enable businesses to lower costs and expand how employees, customers, partners and suppliers communicate and collaborate with greater convenience and efficiency.
In the first phase of the agreement, Avaya customers in the U.S. market will have access to Skype Connect™, a product which adds Skype calling to IP-based enterprise communications systems, providing a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) communications channel between Avaya communications systems and Skype. Customers with Avaya Aura™ Session Manager or Avaya Aura SIP Enablement Server, CS1000, Avaya IP Office, or BCM systems can use Skype Connect to place calls globally for increased reach, while aiming to save on international calling. Enterprise-level security and features such as tracking, recording, regulatory compliance, and more are provided by the Avaya system.
Skype reported 124 million average monthly connected users during the second quarter of 2010. Now, Skype users can make inbound calls to Avaya customers in the U.S. market for free or at a low cost. Calls will be treated with Avaya’s routing, conferencing, messaging, mobility and contact center capabilities, as well as other collaboration services. For example, businesses can:
  • Establish Skype Click & Call buttons for inbound calling from Web sites
  • Establish Skype Online Numbers for inbound calling from landline and mobile phones
  • Route inbound calls from a Skype user to an enterprise extension
Avaya customers in the U.S. market who are interested in Skype Connect can speak with their Avaya sales representative or an Avaya Connect channel partner contacts beginning in October.
In the second half of 2011, Avaya and Skype plan to deliver integrated unified communications and collaboration solutions for enterprises within the U.S. The integration is intended to establish federation between Avaya Aura and Skype communications platforms and both user communities, so that an Avaya end-user and Skype user can engage and interact via presence, instant messaging, voice and video. A business, for example, could use Skype to access an Avaya-based contact center in a simple and highly integrated way to quickly and efficiently resolve customer service issues. The integrated solutions will also allow enterprise IT managers to manage and control the inter-connectivity between end users to meet their corporate IT policies.
“Avaya and Skype have been working along parallel paths to offer, innovative, scalable, low cost, SIP-based communications to our respective markets,” said Alan Baratz, senior vice president, Avaya and president, Avaya Global Communications Solutions. “Now, the two companies will work together, striving to improve collaboration and customer service by federating Avaya and Skype solutions for a common user experience that delivers unique benefits for businesses and their customers who are Skype users.”
“Our relationship with Avaya is expected to expand the footprint for Skype Connect into more enterprises in the U.S. market, while allowing us to help Avaya’s customers benefit from Skype’s cost savings and access to Skype’s global user base,” said David Gurlé, vice president and general manager of Skype for Business. “We believe our integrated solution in the second half of 2011 is expected to offer the benefits of Skype to a growing number of businesses and open up new ways for people to communicate and collaborate.”

Patent office invalidates “VoIP patent”

September 23rd, 2010

Today the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) had an encouraging piece of news.  The patent in question was so broad that it essentially claimed to cover “Method and Apparatus for Implementing a Computer Network/Internet Telephone System,” which, if allowed to stand could have had wide reaching repercussions.

The full story by the EFF can be found here.


Has your software been ruled illegal?

September 12th, 2010

The Ninth Circuit of Appeals has made a ruling concerning the sale of second hand software which could have serious ramifications to several industries.  In the case of Timothy S. Vernor vs. Autodesk, Inc. (the makers of AutoCAD) ruled concerning the resale of second hand software and sided with Autodesk.

 Mr. Vernor had purchased several unused copies of AutoCAD release 14 from one of Autodesk’s direct customers and resold them on eBay.  Autodesk’s position was that it licenses software to the original purchaser and does not sell it.  According to the terms of their license, it is non-transferable.  This is bound to have a ripple effect which can affect everything from second hand software sales to the resale of PC’s and possibly the resale of telephone systems and equipment where the software has similar license agreements in place.

 What is even more surprising is that the media has yet to pick up on this story as I expected.  I heard of it from the Tech Lawyers group on LinkedIn which provided a link to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle.
