Note Migration: And here is the BIG NEWS!
After years of development, Atlasware has broken through the barrier for NOTE MIGRATION. Many representatives download an EDIB file, makes notes on it, develop the file, send in more information to the Agency, download another to see if there are changes, and then download the file one more time before the hearing. Besides the time involved in the download, procedure, the problem has always been that your notes are on an old copy of the file. The newest download has no notes. Frustrating. No More.

“Atlasware is a program that I have no problem recommending to anyone that does Social Security Disability work. This software allows me to effectively use electronic files during Administrative Law Judge Hearings. Once you use the program once, you see how valuable it is to have page and exhibit numbers on the top of every page and to have the entire client file within one easy to manage pdf. Atlasware has allowed me to easily use client PDF files on my iPad for prehearing review, and to use my iPad effectively during hearings. The beta software has worked flawlessly for me, and I will have no reservation about purchasing this software when it becomes available again as a paid product.” -Steven L. Butler, Linarducci & Butler, PA
“I was fortunate to see you and the other Atlasware people at the San Antonio NOSSCR conference and learn about your new program. I have been an Atlasware user for several years, but some of the ODARs have stopped sending file discs and the downloaded PDF files from the website were very cumbersome to deal with. The new Atlasware program that converts the SSA zip files into easy-to-use PDFs has saved me a lot of time and made my file reviews much easier. There have been no bugs or problems so far and the program is very appreciated in my office!” -Stephen Jackel, Law Office of Stephen M. Jackel.
“I depend on Atlasware every day due to having 3-4 hearings a week. Trying to assemble the TIFF files (and store them) takes more time (and computer space) than writing a pre-hearing memo. I’d rather have an old-school paper file than deal with that. Atlasware takes one lesson to learn, a few clicks, and I have a perfectly organized .pdf that allows me access to every exhibit from the Index. As for any glitch or technical issue, one email is all it takes to get a prompt and direct response to my issue (though, I have to say, some of the issues were my fault…)” - Sara Dyer, Medford, OR
“I have been representing Social Security Disability claimants for 20 years. I am a sole practitioner so efficiency is essential. Since I began using Atlasware Software a year ago, it has become an essential tool in my office. I found the downloading of ERE files to be burdensome and the files themselves to be difficult to navigate. I now download all of my ERE files using Atlasware Software, OCR them with the Software, and use them in preparation for and at hearing. The files are easy to read as one continuous document but are easy to maneuver within from one point to the other. While reading a file, the exhibit type, number and page are always displayed. The OCR feature works well. And, when a page or set of pages from the file are printed, they are automatically labeled by exhibit type, number and page. I appreciate the time that Atlasware saves me and my staff on a daily basis.” -Rodger S. Hutchison, Hutchison Law
“Thank you! This has honestly changed the firm, we’ve been waiting for the day that the files being downloaded online would have a title page.” - Raeann M. Pavlak-Ward, Legal Tech
“I love this tool! The ability to download multiple files at the same time is amazing. I can enter up 5 – 10 SSN’s at one time, and in the background while I’m working on other things, these files download. Quietly, seamlessly, and efficiently. I have been using this for the past year and it works wonderfully. The hyperlinks in the “Table of Contents” generated by the program and the automated pagination, bolding, and bookmarks by this software is amazing! It does in moments what I used to spend a lot of time on. I have always used Adobe Acrobat Standard or Pro since the Agency became paperless for the ability to search the documents. The TIFF files are useless to me and this product converts them like magic. Fast and friendly support seals the deal. Easy to download and get started in a few minutes.” -Mike Haller, Haller Law Office
“This is the easiest product to use to convert the SSA files to PDF. I have been using it for a while now. I love this product. I have one small issue with the beta converter. It is too tall to fit my screen and I have to move it up to see the next button. That is the only thing about this I would change. Anytime I have to call regarding getting it re-loaded on my computer your staff is very helpful and freindly. Thank you for making my job easier.” – Attorney Michelle
