About Software Technology, Inc.
Since its inception in 1979, Software Technology, Inc., the maker of Tabs3 and PracticeMaster, has been developing, marketing, selling and supporting computer software for the legal market.
The company's goal is to provide law firms with the highest level of quality products and service.
As the number of firms using Tabs3 and PracticeMaster software has grown, the company has evolved into being more of a service corporation than a software development company. This is reflected in the following statement by Dan Berlin, President of Software Technology, Inc.: "As long as we continue to be responsive to the feedback we receive from our large base of users, resellers and consultants, we will continue to be successful in our mission to continually set the performance and productivity standards in the software industry."
Software Technology, Inc., was founded in 1979 and is privately owned. Since its first day of business, Software Technology, Inc. has required no financial backing or assistance. The company has been self-sufficient and profitable for over 30 years of business.
The company's first client is still using the software today. The first system was installed in November 1979 in the Lincoln, Nebraska firm of Keating O'Gara Nedved & Peter. The system included time and billing, trust accounting and docket control.
From 1979 to 1983, Software Technology, Inc., relied on word of mouth sales. Without any tangible marketing (other than a trade show or two), they managed to sell over 400 systems. By 1985, Tabs3 Billing Software had developed a name as an industry leader and Software Technology, Inc., added to their reputation by releasing Tabs3-Multi-User, one of the first multi-user systems for a local area network. Even though the company's software was dependable and loaded with features, many firms chose not to automate their billing because of prior bad experiences with other software.
So, when the American Bar Association initiated testing of software for its members, Software Technology, Inc., decided to be the first on board. The company wanted to assure the legal community of its dedication to the legal market and confidence in its software by being the first to submit its software for testing by the American Bar Association's Legal Technology Advisory Council.
In 1988, realizing law firms needed something more detailed and more feature rich than a basic calendar system, Software Technology, Inc., introduced PracticeMaster, a complete practice management system for both private practice firms and corporate legal departments. PracticeMaster was designed to allow attorneys to establish their own calendar criteria along with rule plans to track due dates, appointments, reminders and the like. Beyond calendaring, PracticeMaster handles client notes, performs document assembly and document history tracking, conflict of interest checking, statute of limitations reporting, and custom reporting. Most importantly, it allows users to define what information to track for each client.
In addition to integrating with Tabs3, PracticeMaster includes integration with Worldox®, HotDocs®, most smartphones (via Outlook®), Outlook®, and QuickBooks®. Since its initial release, tens of thousands of users have utilized its many features.Tabs3 is the most award winning legal billing software for solo, small, and mid-sized firms, having won top honors in the Law Technology News awards for eight consecutive years. PracticeMaster has won several awards as well.
The goals of Software Technology, Inc., are to be responsive to its users and provide them with software solutions to assist them in being more efficient and productive in their work. The company plans on continually improving its software to help its clients take advantage of new technology. Software Technology, Inc. plans to continue this tradition by providing new releases of all Tabs3 and PracticeMaster software products on a regular basis.
An additional goal is to continue to provide some of the highest-rated support in the industry. In a recent survey of Tabs3 users, over 95% were satisfied with the support they received from Software Technology, Inc.
Software Technology, Inc., is dedicated to serving the legal market. This is accomplished by offering numerous products to all sizes of firms. The range of software includes versions that are available for firms with five or less billable timekeepers and priced for smaller firm budgets to firms with 100 or more billable timekeepers.
Outside of the support a firm receives from their local Tabs3 and PracticeMaster reseller, Software Technology, Inc., makes telephone support available to all registered users of Tabs3 and PracticeMaster software.
A one year maintenance plan is included with new licenses of Tabs3 and PracticeMaster products. Users on the maintenance program receive telephone support at no additional charge and they have access to all enhancements released during their maintenance period at no charge.
Firms on the maintenance program can also upgrade to a higher level for just the difference in the retail price.
Software Technology, Inc., also provides assistance 24/7 through a Knowledge Base Web site. Training for Tabs3 and PracticeMaster software is available through its local resellers, independent consultants or at Software Technology, Inc.
Tabs3 and PracticeMaster products are available through a national network of resellers and consultants. This allows firms to work with resellers or consultants who understand the needs of law firms. These dedicated resellers and consultants can also provide local area references. Many of these resellers and consultants have been serving the legal markets with Tabs3 and PracticeMaster software for over 25 years. In the rare event that Software Technology, Inc. does not have a local reseller or consultant, firms can work directly with the company.
By providing on-site demos and local references, Tabs3 and PracticeMaster resellers and consultants can assist you in making the best software purchase for your firm.
