VirtualCourthouse releases Version 3.0

Building on 10 years of experience in resolving over 1000 cases, VirtualCourthouse is pleased to announce the release of Version 3.0.

Introducing the culture of continuous improvement, Version, 3.0 goes beyond online dispute resolution by providing the dispute resolution community with a strategy to transition from the paper face-to-face world to the Internet-Cloud world.

Four critical territories are covered:

1. Mediator/Arbitrator marketing

2. Mediator/Arbitrator case management

3. Electronic case filing

4. Video conferencing and secure messaging

For the first time mediators and arbitrators are empowered to market their services, manage cases and conduct conferences entirely online.

Most mediators and arbitrators understand the importance of adopting Internet Technologies, but until Version 3.0 there has been little support to help with the transition from the paper to the digital world. A neutral who uses Version 3.0 will be able to continue most activities in the paper world until this transition is complete. This way, neutrals can immediately capitalize on the Internet's time and cost cutting advantages.

Founded in 2001 by Retired Judge Monty Ahalt, VirtualCourthouse is designed and built on both 21st Century technology and the traditional concepts of justice and fairness. This combination has been recognized by the American Bar Association's Louis Brown Award (2009) as well as by Fox and ABC News.
