The State of California Saves Big by using Cloud Based Legal Practice Management System HoudiniESQ
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Earning a reputation as an innovator and an emerging leader in law practice management software, LogicBit Corporation announced today that the State of California Department of General Services (DGS) and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) has awarded a 5 year contract to LogicBit Corporation. LogicBit's web-based legal practice management product HoudiniESQ will replace the agency's current legal software system supporting 800 concurrent users and will be hosted in the Cloud.
The State of California's decision to choose a SaaS/web-based product for DFEH comes right on the heals of signing a Cloud computing deal with Microsoft to provide web-based email services to the state's employees. The State of California's Department of General Services began its search for a on-line Legal Practice Management product in early 2010. The state is consolidating its IT operations and was looking for ways to use Cloud Computing to cut cost, improve operational efficiencies, reduce the use of paper, and provide better service to California residents.
The DFEH is the largest state civil rights agency in the country. It was established by the Legislature in 1959 as the Division of Fair Employment Practices.
DFEH receives and investigates discrimination complaints in its nine offices throughout California. These offices handle employment, public accommodations and hate violence cases, three district offices handle housing cases, and a special investigations unit focuses on systemic discrimination cases statewide. In addition, there are several legal offices which prosecute cases. The Department is part of the State and Consumer Services Agency and is administered by a Director appointed by the Governor.
HoudiniESQ is a web-based legal practice management suite that can be installed On-premise or accessed in the Cloud. Both options offer secure web access to the firm's data. The product runs entirely in a web browser but has the look and feel of a traditional desktop application. HoudiniESQ can be accessed securely from just about anywhere a Internet connection exist including, smart phones, notebooks, iPads and Android tablets. HoudiniESQ is 100% turnkey and natively integrates with Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook and Intuit QuickBooks. HoudiniESQ is available free as a on-premise install for solo practitioners on OSX, Windows and Linux.
Founded by Frank Rivera, the Architect of the award winning LexisNexis Time Matters World Server. LogicBit Corporation is located in Research Triangle Park North Carolina and its primary focus is the development of web-based legal practice management software.
