Now that the launch of Amicus Premium 13 has arrived we can look deeper in what information of Amicus Attorney is available over the web and mobile interface.
In order to log into your web portal you will need to point the browser to an Amicus Attorney site. There you enter your email address and the password that you use to open Amicus Attorney at the office (make sure this password is a more secure one). You will be entering into a new user interface that was design for web sites and tablets such as iPads, and Android such as Galaxy Note. The icons are big and easy to tap on.
As we get into our web office, we see that the module’s buttons have been moved to the top of the screen vs. the left side on the desktop Amicus Attorney client. The modules available are: Home, Files, Calendar, Tasks, Contacts, Phone Calls and Time.
Clicking or tapping on Files brings up the list of our active files like expected. Click on any of the file to open it and you have access to all the People connected to the file, its Appointments, Tasks, Phone Calls, Time Sheets and Notes. All the major actions like adding a new contact, creating a new event, making a call or email and doing a time entry are supported. Amicus Attorney events tells you which activities you have billed with the new “Time?” column.
The Calendar is quite impressive. Not only it shows you your appointments but you can also see other coworkers’ appointments. One nice touch is that you can click and drag appointments with in the calendar like on the desktop client. Entering an new appointment gives you many options including to make a repeat appointment and select the appropriate file and contact.
Similar to Calendar the Task module gives you a list of the upcoming tasks and it includes a column to track time.
Contacts module shows you a list of your contacts with names, company names and phone numbers. From this window you can initiate a new e-mail or a call. Click on a contact to see more the information. Tabs on the right of the general information allow us to edit the contact information: Profile, Contact (phone, email), Addresses and Notes.
Phone Calls module shows a list to the messages that you or anyone at the firm entered for you. Here you can create a new phone call or message. You can replay to a message and also see if you did a time sheet for that call with the usual “Time?” column.
Last is the Time module. Like you would expect you can create a new time sheet there and the list of your files will pop up. As you select the file the correct rate will apply to the entry. All your activity codes including the litigation codes are available corresponding to the file type selected. As soon as you save your time entry it will be available at the office for reports and for billing.
What is interesting is that all the information is traveling over the Internet encrypted at 256 bit (like your online banking) and none of the information is stored to the mobile device or browser but stays on the server’s firm.
With Amicus Premium 2013 you also get TimeTracker product which allows you to enter time from a smart phone like iPhone, Android, BlackBerry through their browsers.
