- Jul 13, 2008Gee, I wish I had waited for the free version. Can you tell me if there is
any advantage to the Office 2007 version, and how I can incorporate things
like the timeline into that? I still haven't got my 2007 set up totally to
manage cases. I am working out the bugs and trying to learn it all.

formed is allow P.I.s on a budget, that can not afford to spend much
to have a complete Case Management System for free. You also have to
understand that different people will have different preferences on
what case management system they use.
I'll put more in about this later, but I have developed a system that
is pretty simple but it delivers a complete case management system
with everything from Time Lines, to Spread Sheets, to Organizational
Charts, to an Accounting System to a CRM with unlimited storage that
can be used by multiple people to collaborate on cases with. All of
the applications allow for private collaboration and public display.
Right now the trick is to find a good tabbed browser with the smallest
memory footprint possible; I am experimenting with that now... Opera
has a pretty significant memory footprint with all of the tabs on it.
Microsoft Business Contact Manager does a fine job, and I use it. But
my focus here is to provide something powerful and effective for the
P.I.s that are on a budget.
Yes, there is a way to link all of these systems to Business Contact
What you are seeing on my blog in regards to Web 2.0 Applications are
free tools that a Private Investigator can use in his or her every day
operations, without having to spend thousands of dollars on software
only to find out that the software might not provide everything he or
she needs. I have put A LOT of time and a TON of money into this
research, buying software, testing it, and researching what else would
be needed to provide a complete package for P.I. work. It is also
beneficial to me, right now I am ""golden" with the local attorneys
here because I can document my cases in ways that are comprehensive,
easy to understand, and in ways that allow me to find patterns,
discreprencies, and such in my investigations and in ways that most of
these attorneys have never even seen before; due to the heavy research
that I have done on these applications that you are seeing on my blogs.
I am passing this research off to other P.I.s because not everyone has
the money to invest in software to determine what type of case
management system they might prefer. Hopefully this research will be
helpful to the new P.I.s on a budget, or the P.I.s that just don't
have a lot of money.
