WE’VE GOT HISTORY
Get to know us a little bit better.
The team at Attorney Computer Systems not only has the years of experience you would want from your technology partners, but we have also been able to constantly change and adapt to changing times. Technology changes rapidly, and the people who are supporting that technology need to change just as quickly. Our team has been anchored in sound principles for forty years, and we are constantly changing and adapting ourselves to the needs of the moment. We love this stuff (so you don't have to).
Paul Purdue started writing billing software for his father who was a patent attorney and he and his brother started Attorney Computer Systems. For the next few years, Paul attended Eastern Michigan University earning a Bachelors in Business-Computer Science.
The first sale of Tabs3 came in 1985. From this point and into the 1990's the focus for the company shifted from hardware to software, mainly Tabs3 and PracticeMaster. During this time, Paul and his brother tinkered with writing games for the legal education space.
During the dot com boom, Paul took a break from ACS to start a different company, iFulfill.com, a self-serve internet fulfillment center. During this time, iFulfill.com became the “fastest growing integrated fulfillment company” in the United States. However, despite becoming a multi-million dollar company, the bubble burst and the company came to an end in 2005.
Paul Purdue took the experience he gained and refocused his efforts back to Attorney Computer Systems. He hired his first employee, and they began selling and training on Tabs3 and PracticeMaster software, providing technical support to clients and creating educational videos.
Attorney Computer Systems added Worldox document management certification to its areas of expertise. The company serves billing and accounting, practice management, and now document management.
Additional specialists are added to the team as Attorney Computer Systems identifies its customers have a need for custom development outside the scope of Tabs3, PracticeMaster, and Worldox. We begin to build things like dashboards, portals, and custom reports for our customer base.
We add NetDocuments, a cloud based document management solution, to our areas of expertise. With strong demand, we continue to expand our team of specialists to keep up with the growth.
In the midst of a global pandemic, the company grows again to keep up with strong demand for NetDocuments. Additionally, we improve our own infrastructure and expand into the marketing and CRM space by becoming a HubSpot partner.
