We are closing out one of the Academy’s busiest and most successful years ever. A major focus in the past year has been law firm TECHNOLOGY!
SOFTWARE: We launched a new version of our database and estate planning document assembly software, CounselPro™ Version 7.0. We’ll be hosting a conference call soon for our Members to show off the features and streamlined processes this software brings to our Members’ law firms… stay tuned for registration info.
ONLINE TRAINING SYSTEM: Our very own LMS (Learning Management System) launched in the past year. This cloud based Academy training platform now houses about 85% of the modules, systems, processes and training sessions offered by the Academy. We will also be putting together a demo of how this type of staff and attorney training works in the next 30 days or so.
SEO AND SOCIAL MEDIA REVAMP: Bringing on Aaron Fletcher and reorganizing the law firm SEO support we offer to Members has taken participating Members up several notches in the SEO game! Aaron brings a vast amount of experience in this field and also offers SEO support to non-Members (only for areas of non-estate planning or elder law, of course). If you’d like an introduction to what you need to consider for SEO impact, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a link to our free course on the topic.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST………… (drum roll please), WEBSITES: We have finally given our public website a facelift. We moved all of our Member websites to WordPress over the past year and now we have our very own new site! We encourage you to check it out (www.AAEPA.com). This launch is BRAND NEW so we’d appreciate all eyes on deck checking things out – if you have suggestions or if you find a link that isn’t working – email Comments@aaepa.com right away! We want to make sure we cover all the bases!
Staying on top of your law firm technology is a bear – we know all about that. But it is the bear that runs the show. Be sure to review your hardware, network set up, software versions, software licenses at least annually with your IT professional.
Here’s to a fabulous 2014! We look forward to your feedback!
