Activities include tasks, calendar events, and requested meetings. You can define and track activities for many different objects, including campaigns, accounts, contacts, and leads.
Account are records that keep track of those entities your firm does business with. The Account record allows your firm to collect information about the companies your firm does business and interacts with. The Account record is supported by other records (matters, contacts, activities, etc.) that collectively give your firm a 360° view of your clients. From this vantage point, you can easily view from the top, and if you need to, you can easily drill into the details.
Contacts are a core component of a good Case Management system. Thanks to the Force.com platform, Advologix has the best in class platform to build our legal contact management system. Contacts may optionally be assigned to an Account which provides relevant business hierarchy for Contacts within organizations. Contacts are very critical for profiling Matter relationships such as co-counsel, opposition, insurance reps, and so on.
Also referred to as a Case or File, Matters are the central data element in AdvoLogix. Matters are a unit of legal work or a unit of work associaed with a client. A matter is a detailed description of a contact's problem, or question and tracks to solve the problem or issue. You can also create and submit new matters. In addition, you can see cases assigned to court and which type of matter is, with dates and status of matter.
Rather than keep files in folders that make content difficult to find, Content stores files in fully searchable file repositories known as libraries. Libraries determine who can access Content documents, and library permissions determine who can do what to those documents. Administrators can create multiple libraries based on any classification, such as department name, job function, or team, then configure user permissions within the library to balance content access with security.
