    Whatever you do, do NOT get Ignite. We have been fighting with them for a year to get our data, as we have been doing our intakes through it. You cannot extract the contact information with the intake information. You can’t extract the intake information, except one at a time and then have match it up with the contact information. They do not let you create any reports. We have over 4000 clients in their system, and without a data entry clerk working on it for weeks, we can’t get it back. We have called and called asking for our data, and they refuse. I am speaking at an ABA seminar next week on ethics and technology, and this company and their hostage data is part of the plenary speech.

    Listen to Amanda, because the warnings are real. My firm does not have quite the case load as Amanda’s, but we ran into so many issues(more on the bug side) when dealing with Ignite. I would categorize my firm as a small to mid size firm and we found ourselves doing extra work when things just didn’t take or update the way they should have. I would suggest using one of the other 100s of CRM programs on the market like Practice Panther, Needles or Abacus. Just don’t limit yourself to ignite because there’s more out there.
