9. New features and enhancements cemented ECFX Notice's position as the most advanced ECF notice processing software platform on the market
We made thousands of changes and improvements to the software. Here are some of the highlights:
Case Not Found Reporting
ECFX Notice produces daily reports that identify new notices for cases that a missing from the firm’s case management system. This has become a critical risk management tool in our client’s arsenal to protect them from potential malpractice and missed information critical to conflicts of interest checks.
Improved Inbox Management
The ECFX inbox was greatly enhanced to allow users to see the categories of inbox items relevant to them and then act on those items en masse without selecting each item individually. Searching the inbox was also enhanced and makes it easy to clean up issue where data was missing from the case management system.
Brand New Dashboard
In 2022 the ECFX notice Dashboard was redone to make it easier for users to customize and move information around so the most relevant information is always in front of them.
Auto Case Creation
ECFX Notice has added the ability to automate case creation by reading PACER notices and identifying who at the firm is on the notice and putting them on the case team. The firm is also able to identify other people, like docketing staff, that can be added automatically to the team.
