Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 15, 2011
Casecreed, a new company that provides an online channel for consumers to find and book lawyer appointments instantly, launched an impressive public beta product today in Atlanta. Casecreed is like OpenTable, which uses the Internet to enable consumers to make reservations at their favorite restaurants very quickly, often taking advantage of last minute openings. Casecreed applies the power of the Internet to improve attorney/client relationship through a robust CMS.
"We started Casecreed to improve the appointment booking experience for clients and also for local attorneys, because, let's be honest, it is a pain and frustration that everyone has felt more than once," said Haji S Sillah, CEO founder of Casecreed. "The goal is to make clients aware of open appointments for local attorneys in real time, anytime, and book those times 24/7 and even minutes before the appointment. Our simple solution addresses a very complex problem that until now had not been solved."
Casecreed Client Features
Casecreed's website is fast and easy-to-use and eliminates previous frustrations such as being put on hold or waiting for an appointment. Additionally, Casecreed puts consumers back in the driver's seat when making legal decisions by providing them with detailed background information on all participating attorneys. This includes feedback from previous clients, in a reviews feature similar to those from services like eBay and Yelp. These reviews are unique because only real clients can leave feedback, and only after an appointment has taken place. Other features include integrated Google Maps and an appointment availability auto-notification via e-mail and sms text. The service is available to consumers immediately.
Casecreed Attorney Benefits
Participating lawyers benefit greatly from the Casecreed service as well. Casecreed helps attorneys grow their practice by giving them wider visibility on the web, as well as attracting new patients, particularly for those attorneys with strong patient reviews and feedback. In addition, Casecreed improves the efficiency of business, helping alleviate productivity lost from last minute cancellations by filling those times with other patients. Even the top lawyers have a handful of cancellations every day that may be lost and wasted, and by helping fill those times, Casecreed creates capacity in an overextended system.
Casecreed Market Potential and Availability
Casecreed is free to consumers. In this early-launch stage, Casecreed is also free to attorneys. However, the ongoing business model calls for a nominal service fee to be charged to participating attorneys.
Even with a nominal service fee, Casecreed has a large, and lucrative, market around it, sized at a market potential of $253 billion nationally. There are millions of practicing attorneys in the United States, with an average of more than 3,000 appointments each year.
Casecreed's service is currently restricted to booking appointments with criminal defense lawyers local Atlanta area. Other cities and specialties will be added soon. Casecreed is committed to putting its expansion plans in the hands of its users, giving them the opportunity to vote online for where Casecreed goes next.
