Our initial focus was in custom software applications for mini-computers and computer consulting for Fortune 500 corporations, large law firms and professional associations.
Our focus changed in 1992, when we offered our first document conversion and migration product, Mass Transit. Mass Transit helped organizations migrate from Wang VS mini-computers to PC Networks, converting Wang documents into all of the then popular word-processing systems, and automatically building profiles in the customer’s document management system (DMS). In 1996, we released CrossTown, which migrated hundreds of our customers from the SoftSolutions DMS to DOCS Open.
We released CrossWords in 1998. It became the most popular WordPerfect-to-Word conversion utility used in law firms and government agencies. Over 450 organizations have purchased CrossWords to perform their conversion from WordPerfect to Word.
Our Word add-in products, Best Authority (released in 2006), CrossEyes (2001), and Stylizer (2000), add new features to Word. These products dramatically increase user productivity, and reduce complex time-consuming tasks from hours to just minutes. Best Authority is now the leading product for building Tables of Authorities (TOA) in legal briefs. As of June 2018, it is the choice of 89% of the 100 largest U.S. law firms, including all of the 10 largest firms.
