With 75+ years of experience writing practice management software, and a huge market opportunity to take advantage of, Alan Tuback and Doug Dagworthy (Devlos Software's formidable co-founders) decided to take on the monumental task of creating a modern practice management solution... A solution that would not just match, but surpass the current legacy softwares' features, and be able to go toe-to-toe with the new, glitzy, Cloud competitors. Needless to say, the bar was set pretty high!
1) We are going to "do it right" and not rush a half-baked product to market. We wanted to make sure Version 1 had all the features of a MLP (Minimum Lovable Product!) That meant taking the time to create a solid architecture that can grow.
2) We are going to ensure that our clients and partners are going to be treated fairly so that everyone wins. Fair pricing, excellent customer support, open-sourced front-end code, and an open API to our back-end services.
3) We are going to practice total transparency. Whether its pricing or features, we wanted to be sure our clients know exactly what we can deliver. With integrity as a core value, we forewent the razzle-dazzle so that the right information reached our customers.
Our first task was creating an advisory board who we could consult with about new ideas and approaches to old problems. These amazing individuals ensured we were meeting all the industry requirements and kept the development for our solution headed in the right direction.
We also hired developers who could understand the market and not just code. This skill set has allowed us rapid development of features that your law firm will actually use.
In October, 2017 Soluno was released!
Fast forward to today (April, 2018): early feedback tells us that we achieved our initial goals, but we aren't stopping here - there's always features to add!
