Case Management Technology
Judge an immigration management system (IMS) by: (1) what it empowers you to do (2) what its customers say (3) its track record. 1. What you can do - manage client relationships - optimize your operations - assemble documents automatically from a database - share calendars, notes, alerts, and reminders - work anytime, anywhere with Microsoft Office alongside your IMS and more. More, like tailoring an IMS to your needs. Others claim their packages are customizable, but you may need their technician plus hundreds of hours from your staff to get what Tracker gives you out-of-the-box. Mature yet flexible, Tracker lets you easily configure your ideal system. 2. What customers say - "Choosing ImmigrationTracker was a no brainer." -Steve Clark, Flynn & Clark "ImmigrationTracker is head and shoulders above the rest." - Bruce Larson, Mayo Clinic. 3. Track record - top law firms who license immigration management software, choose Tracker: 90% of practicing Past AILA Presidents, 86% of the 25 largest immigration firms (IndUS Business Journal, 2006), 75% percent of the AMLAW 200 (American Lawyer Media, 2006).
