There’s no denying it: law firms are changing the way they do business. You have to be marketing, tech, and business savvy – on top of knowing the ins and outs of the law.
And for small to midsize firms, finding easy-to-use software that manages your practice while growing your business feels like finding a needle in a haystack.
Centerbase’s birth was on an airplane napkin. Founder John Forbes needed an all-in-one platform to run his tech company. So he scribbled the idea of Centerbase down on his flight — a workflow, billing, accounting, and CRM system designed to run his midsize company.
While Centerbase was leaving the napkin and coming to fruition, John’s daughter was attending law school. He started exploring life in law firms for his daughter and realized “Most law firms still use server closets and spreadsheets to manage their practices. I wonder if they need something like Centerbase…”
And John’s hunch proved to be true. He asked several Dallas-based law firms what features they’d want in an all-in-one platform. And started building solutions based on what those practices really needed: flexible and scalable software that was powerful, but easy for tech-novices to use.
Fast forward a few years of development and ongoing customer feedback, and Centerbase debuted at the 2017 ABA TECHSHOW. When the second day ended, there was a long line of legal consultants at the booth who were tired of offering out-of-date firm management products. Their excitement was proof that the years of research had paid off. And Centerbase was the next breakthrough in legal tech: a cloud-based, personalized platform to manage and grow law firms.
Now with continued development and acquisitions of Legalfit and Family Law Software, we’ve grown beyond a simple practice management platform. We power your firm from the first website visit to the final invoice – and you don’t have to be a technology wiz to use it.
The most amazing part of our story is every feature we built, every change we made, and every piece of code we perfected was driven by what real attorneys, real partners, and real admins at real firms needed. We’re proud that our customers’ technology dreams have fueled Centerbase. And we’re thrilled to keep our focus on you.
