Tip of the Day

New Software Launches at AILA Conference

New, Improved Software Launched!

ILW.COM is happy to announce that we have upgraded our existing Case Tracking and IFillForms software. Attorneys can see the new software at this week's AILA tradeshow in Boston. Existing users have already been automatically upgraded for no extra charge.

New Features!

The new upgrade includes the following features:

  • Integration of Case Tracking and IFillForms.
  • Attorneys work from a single case-list for both functions.
  • The back-end data is also integrated.
  • Seven new forms added!
  • Reporting capabilities have been improved.
  • Several bug-fixes and minor feature improvements requested by users.

Customized look for attorneys!

Many attorneys asked us for a customized look, so that their clients do not see the rest of the ILW.COM site. In effect, what attorneys asked us for is software which would become a service on *their* websites. In response to this demand, we now offer customized screens for attorneys for a small annual customization fee. Write to for details.

If you are going to be at the AILA show, please come and see for yourself how our software can help you in client-service, client-retention, and can help improve your office productivity. We are booth #319 in the Exhibit Hall in the Marriott Copley Hotel on the third floor.
