CRM Study Reveals Lawyers are Behind the Curve

Sherman Oaks, CA, July 21, 2015 — /EPR SOFTWARE NEWS/ — Ackert Inc.™ released the findings of a market-wide study showing surprising trends in Customer Relationship Management adoption and utilization in law firms—or rather, the lack thereof.

Although attorneys’ primary role is to service their clients’ legal needs, they are also expected to originate new clients for their firms; yet relatively few attorneys use formalized systems to organize their pursuits. The recent study reveals that although 70 percent of North American law firms have implemented a CRM initiative, less than 5 percent of lawyers at most firms use it regularly.

The CRM marketplace is a 23 billion dollar industry with high utilization from sales teams in most verticals. According to the latest surveys, 61-100 percent of sales teams across non-legal markets use CRM at least once per day. This stands in stark contrast to the less-than-5-percent of lawyers who use CRM at least once every 2 weeks.

Since the economic downturn in 2008, lawyers at firms of all sizes have faced new pressure to develop business proactively rather than waiting on new clients to find them. Attorneys today face a more competitive landscape than ever before. The need to proactively develop business is made even more challenging by heightened competition between firms and lawyers – according to the latest figures from the American Bar Association, only 57 percent of law school graduates are working in long-term positions where bar admission is required.

The legal CRM study reports that the two primary reasons for underutilization are a lack of accountability and a general lack of technological proficiency. It is worth noting that these factors are cultural/behavioral issues rather than CRM software shortcomings.

This has given rise to innovative software platforms seeking to address CRM underutilization among lawyers. “We’ve found that coupling technology with coaching is an effective way to increase engagement among lawyers,” said David Ackert, founder of Practice Pipeline. His software is distinctly high-touch, with regular email reminders and monthly coaching sessions that encourage accountability. “Utilization is definitely a significant issue with lawyers. We have focused on seamlessly integrating with Outlook to capture contact information, and we see Practice Pipeline also as a very simple and effective tracking mechanism,” said Jeff Reade, President of Cole Valley Software which owns ContactEase, the second largest provider of CRM to the legal industry.

Lawyers, more than most, need to start adopting the sales behaviors and technologies that stimulate new business opportunities. Those who continue to stubbornly refuse CRM and other pipeline management solutions may find themselves struggling to grow their practices.

Pipemetrics taps into the emerging market trend for higher quality Windows software

Lausanne, Switzerland, June 25, 2015 — /EPR SOFTWARE NEWS/ — Overwhelmingly positive user response confirms strong demand for well-crafted Windows software.

 

Pipemetrics (http://www.pipemetrics.com) marked the first year on the market of its flagship product Bvckup 2 (http://bvckup2.com/) by announcing that an analysis of user engagement data shows substantial and growing demand from Windows users for higher quality standards.

Windows has been traditionally associated with software that focused on the technical elements first and the user experience second.

Founded in 2012, Pipemetrics was set up with an altogether different take on Windows software. By marrying industrial system engineering with nuanced visual and interactive design, the company develops software that is as lean and powerful as it is beautiful.

This month marks the first anniversary of the release of Bvckup 2 – the first embodiment of company’s design principles. A simple, single-purpose, yet sophisticated and performant local backup software for Windows.

“When we launched Bvckup 2 we wondered whether our high-end engineering philosophy would be accepted by users,” explained company’s founder, Alexandre Pankratov. “After all it’s not uncommon for Windows software to compete on how many things a product does rather on how well it does them. After the release, we were very pleased with the positive reviews in the media, but what completely caught us off guard was the avalanche of compliments received from actual users.”

Conceived for professional, enterprise and advanced home users, the functional power of Bvckup 2 is harnessed through a precise and intuitive interface to deliver a robust user experience.

“This overwhelmingly positive reaction shows that a growing number of Windows users recognize and look for software polish as a feature in its own right. Windows users’ expectations are changing; simply having lots of options is no longer enough.”

Sample of user feedback*
“Bvckup 2 is one of the best pieces of software I’ve used in the last 35 years. Does what you said; solves my problem; Fast.” Michael Fuller

“A truly beautiful, precise and well-executed piece of software.” Riyad Kalla

“Simple, minimalistic, yet so powerful.” Ivan Kolevski

Product information:
Bvckup 2 (pronounced “Backup 2”) is a mirroring data backup software for Windows. Select a pair of directories and the app will make sure that one stays an exact copy of the other. It is light, uncomplicated and includes a comprehensive array of supporting features. It is also incredibly fast.

Company information:
Pipemetrics SA is a Swiss company founded by Alexandre Pankratov, formerly of the Hamachi VPN project, acquired by LogMeIn after growing to 3 million users in 18 months. The company draws extensively from his experience combining advanced engineering and interface design to produce simpler software for complex tasks.

Hazelcast Hires Silicon Valley Management Team Members for Next Phase of Growth

Silicon Valley veterans join founders to form management team in Palo Alto to help build Sales, Marketing and Operations

Palo Alto, CA, 2013-10-15 — /EPRSoftwareNews.com/ —  On the heels of raising 2.5M in Venture Capital financing, Hazelcast (http://www.hazelcast.com) today announced that it has hired two executives to grow sales and marketing.  Hazelcast also recently moved its headquarters to Palo Alto California. Paul Salazar was appointed as VP of Sales and Operations and Miko Matsumura as VP of Marketing and Developer Relations. These changes round out the executive management team reporting to CEO founder Talip Ozturk.

Miko Matsumura is a 20 year veteran of Silicon Valley and was the original Java Evangelist at Sun Microsystems. Most recently he served as SVP of Platform Marketing and Developer Relations at Kii Corporation. He served as a CTO for Software AG and a VP at webMethods, which acquired his startup company INFRAVO for $38M. He is a Limited Partner at Focus Ventures, which manages over a half a billion dollars. He holds an MBA from SFSU as well a Master’s degree in Neuroscience from Yale University.

Paul Salazar is a veteran of the technology business having worked in high tech for over 25 years, as an engineer, product manager, marketing and sales executive, and general manager. He has extensive open source software experience including Red Hat, Cygnus Solutions and OTRS, and also in executive roles at Greenplum (now EMC) and Skytree. Paul attended Stanford University and has Bachelors and Masters degrees in Electrical Engineering, and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). He is an avid amateur astronomer.

We are increasingly being used in mission-critical applications by huge global organizations. I’m committed to building the world class infrastructure and processes around the globe to provide 24×7 mission-critical support to these customers in Banking, Telecommunications, Government, eCommerce and many other industries.” Talip Ozturk, founder and CEO  said “By adding seasoned executives in sales and marketing, we now have the core team that will help the company through the next stage of growth.

Mr Salazar said “The volume of downloads of Hazelcast and inbound requests coming from Fortune 500 class companies is amazing, and speaks to the quality of the product and its reliability in mission-critical data centers. I’m excited to help build what will become a world-class software company.”

Mr Matsumura said “Programmers liked Java because they could write a single program that could run on many different kinds of machines. They love hazelcast because they can now run a single java program on top of a cluster of hundreds of machines using plain-old-java objects.”

3CX Delivers an Easy and Affordable On Premise Mobile Device Management Solution

3CX, developer of the award-winning Windows VoIP PBX 3CX Phone System and mobile device management solution 3CX Mobile Device Manager, today announces the launch of the On Premise edition of 3CX Mobile Device Manager for Windows Server – an easy to deploy and inexpensive on premise mobile device management solution that allows businesses to retain full control of their mobile devices and location tracking data in a private cloud or on premise without the administration complexity.

“The demand for an easy to deploy and affordable on premise mobile device management solution is clear, yet has seemed to be surprisingly lacking in the market till now. The 3CX Mobile Device Manager On Premise edition provides businesses with an inexpensive and easy to manage solution”, said Nick Galea, 3CX CEO. “3CX Mobile Device Manager allows businesses to fully retain control of their data without the complexity and headache that other mobile device management solutions pose.”

Easy to Deploy and Manage

3CX Mobile Device Manager allows companies to leverage their Windows Server knowledge and infrastructure and thus deploy a mobile device management solution without the additional administration overhead.

Other mobile device management solutions are either optimised for hosted and thus difficult to install, require Linux knowledge or are prohibitively expensive.

Finally, an Affordable On Premise Mobile Device Management Solution

Many MDM vendors only offer cloud solutions, which drastically hinders businesses looking to retain control of their mobile data. On premise MDM solutions can be very expensive to purchase and difficult to deploy and manage. 3CX Mobile Device Manager differentiates itself from the competition as its On Premise edition is affordable and easier to deploy and manage, unlike some other cumbersome MDM solutions. Businesses are reducing their expenses and are therefore reluctant to pay the enterprise-level pricing and support the competition demands.

Meet Your Legal, Reporting and Internal Policy Requirements

Companies that need to retain full control of their data for internal policy reasons or are legally obliged to provide reports to HIPAA or SEC have faced a very limited choice of mobile device management solutions. Businesses who face these requirements have been forced to shelve their mobile device management plan or reluctantly move to a difficult to manage and expensive MDM solution. The 3CX Mobile Device Management On Premise edition addresses this market.

Private Cloud, On Premise or Hosted: Your Choice

Experience all the features of the On Premise edition of 3CX Mobile Device Manager for free for up to five devices. Downloading this edition is easy and only takes a few minutes. Read the step by step guide on how to get started, the installation and configuration manual and user manual.

Check out the Hosted edition of 3CX Mobile Device Manager by signing up for a FREE 5 device account! The 3CX MDM pricing can be seen here. Visit the 3CX Mobile Device Manager website at www.MobileDeviceManager.com and find us on Facebook.
