Legal SaaS Tech Startup Rocket Matter Helps Law Firms Prepare for Disasters

Share Article

The South Florida software company's web-based approach to legal practice management assists firms with Business Preparedness and Disaster Recovery.

Rocket Matter, a new web-based legal software product, provides an innovative alternative to legal practitioners seeking to minimize their risks due to disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires, tornadoes, earthquakes, and terror threats.

By providing a hosted, Internet-based solution for legal practice management and time and billing software, Rocket Matter removes the need for law firms to maintain servers on their premises, freeing professionals to practice law from any location with Internet connectivity.

Instead of buying and installing software and expensive hardware, users navigate securely to Rocket Matter using an Internet browser and simply log in to use the application. Known as Software-as-a-Service (or SaaS), Rocket Matter represents an evolutionary development in the typically non-innovative world of legal practice management software.

The founding partners of Rocket Matter are Internet veterans who, between them, have survived two earthquakes, five hurricanes, the September 11 attacks, and the Northeast Blackout of 2003. "We're unfortunately a little too aware of the havoc created by disasters, not only from a tragic standpoint, but also from a business perspective," says Larry Port, Founding Partner and Chief Software Architect. "In this day and age, we were astonished to see a lack of simple and affordable options for attorneys, especially in smaller firms, that also provide business continuity and disaster recovery. Using a well-built web application is an easy way to solve the problem."

In the event of a disaster in which a firm is damaged or power is unavailable, according to Port, users of Rocket Matter enjoy continued access to their firm data. Rocket Matter's servers are located in secure locations and are backed up continuously. This allows displaced users to get working once they are able to access Internet.

Since the application is web-based, Rocket Matter affords a number of other advantages over traditional, installed software. Users can access the service using any computing platform, whether Mac, PC, or Linux. Mobile devices, such as Apple's iPhone, are also able to access the service. In addition, the level of data security offered by Rocket Matter exceeds what a typical small firm may be able to afford.

Another advantage is a simplified and elegant user interface, especially in the legal practice management field, where user interaction often takes a back seat to technical considerations. "We want the experience to be simple and fluid," says Port. "Rocket Matter is designed from the ground up specifically for law firms. We know that time is of the essence for attorneys, so we made sure they can find their information quickly and easily."

Introduced in February 2008, Rocket Matter is currently offered as a monthly subscription. Interested parties can view a video of the product and sign-up for more information at
