Legal Tech TIPS


1 Ruby Receptionist

Need a receptionist fast? Vacations, staff illness or covering a vacancy can be very problematic. A for-fee service like Ruby Receptionist can save the day and your business. Ruby Receptionist is essentially a call center where you can have your office calls forwarded. A live person—a receptionist—answers and follows a script you provide. You purchase blocks of minutes for the time slots or period you need to have covered. Ruby Receptionist is available via website and app—Android and iOS. Check out other examples like Lex and Posh and compare.

Only available only in iOS.

I’m always searching for ways to organize my work. Check out Eastgate Tinderbox (no, not related to a dating service). The for-fee Tinderbox documents and visuals adapt to your work style and grow with your understanding. Tinderbox can help keep your data organized and complete, automatically supplying routine metadata and discretely reminding you of gaps and errors. Tinderbox can even remind you if you repeat the same words too often. Tinderbox AI automatically recognizes addresses and gets their geographical location for you. It finds names and organizations mentioned in your notes, helping your agents to tag and organize your work, freeing you to concentrate on what matters most.
