ABA Launches ABA TechEZ Technology Marketplace
CHICAGO, Nov. 23, 2009 — The American Bar Association today announced the launch of ABA TechEZ, a technology marketplace for its members. The online directory at www.abanet.org/techez features about 25 software packages, ranging from billing programs to collaboration and legal research applications, from more than a dozen vendors.
Participating companies include:
- Abacus Data Systems
- Copernic Inc.
- Protus, provider of MyFax and my1voice
- Themis Solutions (CLIO)
- Raising the Standard
- Ring Central
ABA TechEZ is a collaborative effort of the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center and ABA Member Benefits. It was developed to serve an educational purpose as well as provide special pricing on legal software for ABA members — particularly those in solo practice or small firms who work without the benefit of in-house information technology staff.
“The ABA believes that making smart choices about technology is essential to getting the best return on the investment,” says Catherine Sanders Reach, director of the Legal Technology Resource Center. “We want to help our members learn about new technologies, have access to educational materials and training that strengthens their understanding and efficient use of technology, and receive discounts on technology as a benefit of being an ABA member.”
With nearly 400,000 members, the American Bar Association is the largest voluntary professional membership organization in the world. As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that assist lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.
