Deal of the Week: Deadline Direct

Life in the law firm is a never-ending round of deadline calculations. Missing  one can be catastrophic.

There's a lot of pressure to get this right and I have to admit that I could hyperventilate everytime I receive a Scheduling Order from the Court with so many confusing deadlines. Counting days on your calendar or using one of those date wheels you pick up at conventions isn't easy.

Now California Paralegal Barbara Haubrich, ACP, CAS has come to the rescue with her very reasonably priced (how reasonable is $9.99!!!) Deadline Direct, a great gadget for the legal professional's Microsoft Windows 7 or Vista desktops and business toolbox.

Barbara says, "Deadline Direct is a handy tool that gives you all the options you need to calculate business deadlines. Time increment choices include calendar days, business days, weeks, months, or years. You can add or delete weekends, federal holidays, or any other date of your choosing.

Deadline Direct eliminates making manual notes in Microsoft Outlook concerning deadline calculations. It provides a notes field that will automatically include the notes with the calculation in its integration features to Microsoft Outlook calendar, task, or e-mail."

This is an ideal economical tool for
  • Solo to Small Law Firms
  • Medium to Large Law Firms
  • Virtual/Freelance Paralegals
  • Legal Secretaries
  • Compliance Professionals
  • Broker & Real Estate Professionals
  • Corporate & Non-Profit Professionals
  • Hospital & Risk Mgmt. Professionals
  • Small or Large Businesses
