A Single Platform for All Your Legal Case Management Needs

CMPOnline comes fully loaded with a growing list of top industry features so your law firm can deliver every time.

Case Management

The main case file screen is the primary interface for your employees and facilitates the legal process by organizing and storing information specific to clients and opponents.

CMPOnline delivers a powerful resource to operators through its unique and intuitive screens. This interface is designed to provide the operator with powerful tools in an environment that enables users to maximize your ability to attain a positive outcome for each case file.

CMPOnline Law Firm Case Management

CMPOnline Hold Code WarningUser defined case types provide the flexibility needed to practice different types of law using just one system. We have optimized the contact screens for quick and efficient data recall, allowing users to contact opponents, sheriffs, clerks, judges, and more. Users can then set up payment plans, take incoming calls, help other users, and schedule follow up actions. With user-defined case types, only applicable fields appear for each type of case, thus allowing your firm to tailor many field labels to fit your needs.

CMPOnline Law Firm Case ManagementThe review feature allows each user access to their daily work list and update or track progress on individual case files, which is the only way a collector, account operator, or lawyer can effectively manage the number of accounts necessary to be productive in today’s environment. Once they have their review list, a double click will access an account (based on security level) and they have instant access to all the relevant information about that case file. This allows the user to gain access to detailed account information so they can quickly make informed decisions about an account. It also acts as the control center whereby users can take action on the account by choosing from the advanced features easily and provides an environment that enables users to maximize the recovery ratio of each account.

Each case file can have an unlimited number of opponents, addresses, and accounts. You can also track multiple addresses, phone numbers, notes, service, and trial results for each opponent. Review items are also opponent specific. This flexibility allows opponents to be tracked separately or together. Documents can also be generated for a specific opponent or for all opponents in the file. Use an advanced document feature like expressions and CMP will check for separate addresses or representation by an attorney and generate the document accordingly. Each file can also be assigned to multiple users for review and updating can occur at the same time to allow the staff and lawyer to review the case file separate or together at any time.

The comprehensive tracking of opponents, multiple accounts per opponent (with separate balance tracking), interest, check return fee, agency fees, legal fees, contact dates, notes, and auditing information is all available in the transaction screen to see what has happened at any time. Since each type of entry is identified, filtering for calls, payments, or other specific transactions is quick and easy.

In CMPOnline, Workflows provide an easy automation solution to case development. When you first open a case until it closes, workflows allow you to focus on the suit while not worrying about the administrative details.

Billing & Accounting

Maintain complete control with CMPOnline’s comprehensive accounting. Designed by a CPA, the accounting programs automate the familiar “one write” concept of bookkeeping and offer numerous options. Meet client demands quickly and retain the highest degree of accounting accuracy and automation available. When marketing to prospective clients or servicing existing ones, the Case Master Pro accounting options will set you apart from the competition.

CMPOnline Law Firm Billing Management

CMPOnline Legal Trust AccountingCMP Trust Accounting enables remittances, check printing, billing, and automated batch routines from each account separately. Unlimited trust/cost accounts allows each client to be separated into different trust accounts respectively. The trust accounting automates check writing for costs and remittances with the ability to have custom remittances, outstanding check reports, and personalized statements for your clients. The ability to handle check-by-check remits allows for seamless auditing if the client requests it. All processes are linked directly to the case file for easy verification of fee and cost recovery as well as itemized opponent and file accounting audit trails.

Automatically and accurately apply fee arrangements and change fee arrangements when you file suit or hire a corresponding attorney. Options include net or gross remits, bracketed rates (multiple rates per client or case), contingent, and non contingent fee rates. Billing options include recovery of additional suit fees and flat rate, per file, or hourly billing. In addition, any combination of the above can be used to meet the requirements of the more complex clients. Furthermore, fees can be advanced from trust or billed directly to the clients.
Work efficiently by having the system create cost checks to clerks, sheriffs, process servers, and others recoverable costs. Checks can accompany court documents or be generated on demand, but court cost billing can include group checks or individual court cost statements for each file, minimums for both court cost invoices and refunds based on tables defined in the system, detailed or summary cost history, and can include creditor name for recording purposes. Regardless, all or only those ready to close can be processed and invoicing can be done on plain letterhead or plain paper depending on your preference.

CMPOnline Legal Deposit Entry ScreenThe flexibility of the remittance options available allow you to meet the needs of your clients in ways previously unavailable. Options available by client include single or group checks, gross or net remittance, automatic deduction for payment fees or other costs directly from the remittance, thus improving cash flow and receipt of payment faster. The client also controls the number of days to hold checks before remittance to prevent the remittance of NSF or otherwise non negotiable checks. The available remittance options allow you to meet all a client’s needs quickly and efficiently.

CMP fully supports US and Canadian currencies as well as Canadian sales tax, such as Goods and Services Tax (GST) and Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). Our current clients are located throughout North America, including Canada.

CMP Imaging

A move in the direction of going paper-light or even paperless can save your law firm time and space. CMPOnline imaging integrates your documents directly into each case file, allowing for easy filing and increased efficiency. The clean design and simple interface let you process and store documents quickly, giving peace of mind that you and your team can access any document at a moment’s notice from anywhere at any time.
CMPOnline Paperless Office for Law Firms

Imaging is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Having an integrated imaging solution offers much more power and benefit than a stand-alone imaging program. The standard imaging allows check copies, tax returns, credit applications and other pertinent documents to be scanned into the system using industry standard scanners and add all documents into the system. Each document is filed into a filing cabinet with a description of the document, its purpose, and source. This allows easy retrieval at a staff’s fingertips rather than having to call back a debtor, opponent, client, clerk, or J.A. after finding a paper document. Being able to email, fax, or print and mail the image allows for a complete management of all images in the system to increase productivity.

CMPOnline Virtual Filing SystemCMP Imaging tracks outgoing documents with an “Add to Imaging” option at the top of your browser window to instantly and automatically save a generated document to the imaging system. This makes the complete and paperless office option a reality. All documents are treated as new, incoming files with the ability to link directly to the applicable case file in CMPOnline. Best of all, the images are available in the case file for easy storage, retrieval, and activity attachments.

The CMPOnline database, powered by Microsoft SQL and ODBC, and industry-standard TIFF compression, allows for a variety of scans, images, and files to be viewed at one time. Paired with versatile scanning options, CMPOnline allows a solution that best fits your firm’s needs. Included features allow for customization of workflow with images. These features include page insert, replace, delete, append functions, scalable viewing windows, page browsing, image rotation, and scaling for enhanced image customization.

Administration

This feature seamlessly integrates your firm’s administration with your cases. The administration area of CMPOnline is designed specifically for system administrator use. It handles security, user field settings and optional modules that are licensed. In addition it handles various system-oriented files including the accounting setup and user administration.

CMPOnline Law Firm Administration

Security is handled in every aspect of the CMPOnline database. It allows the system administrator to limit users access to only the screens or fields applicable to their job function. Each field and form in CMP can be secured. Security can be restricted even more by limiting fields to read only read and write or no access at all. This area can also be used to “hide” a field that you may not need for your business. The security enhances usability by restricting a user’s access to certain information and, in turn, reducing the possibility of changing information by mistake all while eliminating fields from the users sight that may otherwise confuse them.

The ability to handle multiple trust accounts allows each client to be identified with a specific trust account. Additionally, the trust account can be streamlined for smaller firms to have a trust account that combines several clients together. Each trust account can be reconciled to manage fees or costs advanced from trust as well as client and opponent payments And vendor refunds.

The accounting section permits the integration of third party accounting interfaces to help manage the firm’s accounting needs. This allows all checks to be integrated with the most popular accounting programs to summarize the financial position for the firm. Currently, it integrates with QuickBooks, but other interfaces are available, if desired, to manage the detailed finances.

All system reports and graphs are available from within this area as well. This provides quick views against the data collected in the system at any time. The use of graphs and reports handle most standard data directly. Custom reports can be done through the specialized custom reporting option. This area allows for any reports to be done based on the user requirements. Standard report categories include litigation, status, financial and performance, listings, exports and queries, as well as user-generated custom reports. This combination allows a good review of the details available in the system and allows access to the information most frequently used.

Reporting

CMPOnline reporting tool allows your firm to have actionable reports in minutes from any data field set selected. Reporting provides up-to-date visualization of every case file’s accounts, financials, and litigation specifics. Reports can be saved, filtered by columns, and detailed to exact requirements. They can also be printed, emailed, or exported based on the individual user’s requirements. CMPOnline empowers users with intelligent answers to their questions in the form of meaningful reports.
CMPOnline Custom Reporting for Law Firms
CMPOnline Legal Reporting GraphsCMPOnline includes a fully customizable reporting tool, which allows for the organization and filtering of any information within the system. Basic reports can range from listing case files for a particular client to sorting accounts based on financial data. Advanced reports can just as easily be created by adding conditions and filters to any field. This allows each user to run reports for any reason based on what they need and when they need it.
Once defined, any report can be saved for future use or discarded. If saved, they can be saved as a personal report or a shared report. If saved as personal, the report can only be viewed and modified by the user that created it, very much like a document created can be saved in ‘My Documents’. If saved as a shared report, it is just like saving a document on your network.

CMPOnline Reports Export to ExcelReports can be viewed in several formats, each offering different options such as Rich Text format so they can be opened in Word or WordPerfect. If a report is just for information, it can be previewed on the screen before printing if desired. If a client wants specific information, it can be saved as an RTF or Excel format to allow it to be shared. Excel format also allows data to be graphed, formatted, or otherwise manipulated using the spreadsheet options many people are already familiar with. Regardless of the format, the reports can be emailed or faxed to maximize the benefits of integration without leaving your desk.

Document Management

Having access to every stored file just as if you were in the office is essential to every firm. CMPOnline uses a conventional cabinet-folder filing structure with our cloud-based application, making the document management tool an intuitive and easy-to-learn interface. With automation built in, your firm can create documents quickly and efficiently.

The Document generation screen is easy to navigate and logically designed. The document titles are controlled by you and your firm so there’s no extra training time needed to learn a new document naming structure. You can mold the document system to create single-page letters or complex packages. CMP makes it easy to tailor your legal files to your firm’s already in place organization style. The templates are designed by you and your firm with the option to merge any field in CMP into a document. This allows users to create new packages on the fly, reducing the set-up time and resulting in the same level of productivity. The documents are then saved as templates to be used over and over again. A merged document can also be modified before printing or making a PDF without altering the template.

CMPOnline takes document automation to a whole new level. You can watch the YouTube video below or contact us for a free demo today.

CMPOnline Legal Document Generation and Management

CMPOnline Automated Word Document Merge FieldsWhen a document is created, it can be set up to drop in fields from anywhere in the system. If a case file is open, then the fields are automatically inserted. A simple to use interface allows the users to select from the multiple opponents and addresses as necessary to use the system with minimal training or additional effort. Each document can be viewed on screen in preview mode to be sure it meets the guidelines required for quality control purposes.

Advanced scripting is available for complex multi-page documents. These advanced expressions allow the system to have a document that changes based on certain criteria. For example, a document language could change based on the state the opponent resides and eliminate the need for multiple documents that are very similar in nature.

CMPOnline Law Firm Document ManagementSome processes, like generating invoices can be automatically generated when a letter is sent to be sure that costs and fees are collected automatically. This is another way to increase your productivity while still maintaining the desired control. It is this flexibility that is an integral part of CMPOnline and one of the many areas where it excels. Automated batch documents offer the ease and speed to process thousands of documents with a few simple clicks.
