Centerbase vs. Amicus Attorney.
What’s Right for Me?
Changing software seems daunting – we make it worth it. Implementing software that boosts efficiency pays for itself in the long run.
Stay with Amicus Attorney if:
- You only need off-the-shelf reports
- You only need the basics and don’t need customization
- You don’t need to grow your firm
Choose Centerbase if:
- You want centralized, real-time data that reports on any metric
- You want to reduce your workload and save time
- You want to bill faster (and get paid faster)
See the Difference for Yourself
Software isn’t built the same – and because we’re different, Centerbase powers your firm to do what you’ve never done before.
Free and Automatic Updates
❌ Amicus leaves routine updates to users. Want Amicus to handle it? Pay a fee outside your subscription.
✅ Centerbase updates and monitors your site on a monthly basis. Your job is to serve your clients, not maintain technology
Dedicated Support Team
❌ At Amicus you either suffer very long hold times or pay a premium for quick on-demand support.
✅ Centerbase’s support team answers your ‘how-to’ questions, whenever, at no cost to you. On average, we reply to client tickets in under 2 hours!
Accessibility Whenever, Wherever
❌ Amicus’s capabilities stop when you need them to keep going. Without mobile accessibility, you might as well be living in the 80s with only one client and half the problems.
✅ Centerbase gives you complete mobile access to automatically create time entries from client text and phone conversations. Serve your clients on the go and never miss a billable second.
Project Management Tools for Every Matter
❌ Amicus has little to no matter organizational tools. It’s up to you to manually manage it all.
✅ With Centerbase’s TaskFrame™, you can visually plan, track, and manage matters from start to finish. From scheduling tasks to seeing upcoming deadlines and organizing your to-do list, you can manage your entire caseload all in one place.
