We are delighted to be launching the first cloud-based platform designed especially for dispute resolution professionals. Thank you for giving us a try! Because it is the first tool of its kind, we are regularly asked "What exactly is ADR Notable?"
In a nutshell, ADR Notable is a cloud-based platform that will help anyone who helps others resolve their personal or professional disputes -- mediators, arbitrators, attorney advocates, and HR professionals. It started as a tool to make it easier to capture, organize, and find your notes during a mediation session -- no more flipping pages on your legal pad! You can read more about how and why ADR Notable was created in our Blog. Because ADR Notable is cloud-based, you will have access to your case details and notes from your home, office, or mobile device. ADR Notable is a robust and secure note-taking app for mediators.
But when we tested the prototype, we heard "this looks great, but I could also use some tools to help me manage my practice." So we went back to the drawing board and added a range of tools to help with scheduling, communication, gathering and organizing documents, tracking time, and more. ADR Notable is a cloud-based practice management tool for mediators.
ADR Notable is not an ODR platform; it was designed as a technology tool to help with in-person mediations. But it will be extremely useful to anyone who participates in remote sessions. Use it in conjunction with your favorite video conferencing platform and you will have a powerful, secure, and easy-to-use tool to manage all aspects of your mediation. ADR Notable is a tool to help mediators "in the room" and during remote sessions.
And finally, our guiding principles are that ADR Notable has to be blindingly simple to use and as flexible as possible. "Simple to use" because we understand that you want to keep your focus on the people in the room, with minimal distractions. But also simple to learn, because who has time to learn a complex new program? And "flexible" because while some professionals resolve disputes all day, every day, others may only have five or six cases a year. Some told us they will pass the cost of ADR Notable right through to the participants, and others will treat it as an overhead expense. So we have a pricing plan for all of you. But then we took the concept of flexibility even further, right into the design of all aspects of the app. For example, do you organize your notes by categorizing them as issues, facts, and proposals or do you organize them by party? Perhaps you have another strategy altogether. When you are using ADR Notable, it doesn't matter because you can customize your note board to accommodate your style. ADR Notable is simple and flexible.
And this is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg, so come back in April 2020 to see how ADR Notable can help you!
