Affinity Consulting Blog

When our clients call on us for guidance, we don't just sell them a piece of software. We assess their needs, listen to their goals, learn about their practice and make recommendations. These recommendations include process recommendations, management recommendations, and technology recommendations that will make their lives easier so they can better serve their clients.

This is an awesome responsibility, and we pride ourselves on partnering with the best in the business when it comes to software. That is why for over 20 years, we have teamed up with Tabs3 and PracticeMaster to improve the lives of our clients. Our partnership with Tabs3/PracticeMaster is so solid that we swept the most recent consultant awards for these products.

Sometimes things go very wrong with Windows and the best option is to re-install the operating system. This step is not to be undertaken lightly, and don't do it if you are not comfortable with the process. Also, make sure you backup all of your data and settings first. The always useful Lifehacker site has a list of things to do before and after you do your re-install. But what if you don't have your original Windows install disc(s)?

Unless you have been living under a rock the last several days, you have heard about one of the most serious Internet security vulnerabilities yet seen, the Heartbleed bug. It affects a huge number of Web sites including those offering accounts and services that lawyers might use in their personal and/or professional lives. The vulnerability has been out there for over two years, so there is no way to be sure that your personal or firm logins and passwords, and the data that lies behind those logins, has not been compromised. Chances are you are safe, and nearly all affected Web sites have now patched the vulnerability. But what should you do next?

Affinity’s Practice Management Client Care program, PMCC, gives you a training plan or an ongoing support plan that is vital to using your technologies such as Amicus Attorney, Time Matters, PracticeMaster, PCLaw, Tabs3, or Worldox. Your systems and processes are ever-evolving and you need your technology and your operations to grow with the decisions you make to run your business.

Our PMCC program is a two tier offering – Essentials, which focuses on the ever critical training, or Premier for unlimited, proactive support with training.

Security concerns never completely disappear. Microsoft issued an advisory that attackers are using specially configured RTF (rich text format) files to exploit a vulnerability in Microsoft Word 2010. Opening one of these files could allow the attackers to take control of your computer.
