The new cloud service is called LexisNexis® Firm Manager™ and it is now entering a public beta phase.

Firm Manager provides a single view of cases, upcoming appointments, meetings and tasks, a special display of deadlines that have slipped and recent messages that have come in.  From this dashboard you can go to all of your cases, contacts, appointments, meetings, tasks and messages for greater detail.

The LexisNexis® Firm Manager™ application is optimized for viewing and use on iPhone®, BlackBerry®, Android™, and iPad® screens.  From a smartphone or iPad® you can view, annotate and update matters and contacts, calendars and tasks, time and expense entries and much more.   

Also, because of integration with Microsoft® Outlook®, your mobile device’s contacts, calendar entries and notes can be synchronized with the LexisNexis® Firm Manager™ application.

LexisNexis advises that “when the beta period ends, fees will be approximately [US]$59.95 or less per user, per month for anyone participating in the beta program. There is no commitment – simply pay monthly and cancel at any time.”
