Why have we introduced Carpe Diem Classic 2014?

The release of Carpe Diem Classic 2014 (CDC2014) is part of our $2 million (£1.2 million) commitment to developing our industry leading timekeeping suite; and is the the first step in a major evolution of the Carpe Diem product suite. CDC2014 is not only packed with additional features in a familiar interface, but moreover its modern and robust services based architecture serves as the foundation for Carpe Diem’s ‘next generation’ interface, which will be available in 2015. As a result, you can deliver additional benefits to your firm without any end-user training, while laying the ground for ‘next generation’.

How does Carpe Diem Classic 2014 differ from its predecessor?

CDC2014 has been built from the ground up, but still maintains the same familiar interface that you’re used to. In updating Carpe Diem Classic, we have carefully listened to you, our users and based on your feedback, as well as in depth research and thousands of hours of developing and testing, we have fundamentally upgraded Carpe Diem Classic. As a result, CDC2014 removes any technology risks for the firm and ensures perfect co-existence as part of a modern user desktop. It is now 100% database compatible and requires no end-user training, meaning change management is non–existent in the firm’s upgrade and migration to CDC2014.

What are the new features included in Carpe Diem Classic 2014?

CDC2014, is 100% re-developed on a modern technology platform and delivers several exciting new features, while retaining the look and feel and all the user interface functionality from earlier versions.

100% database compatibility

CDC2014 has been completely rewritten without using the Borland Database Engine (BDE) but remains 100% compatible with your existing Carpe Diem database. The client software has been rewritten in C# using WPF on Microsoft’s .Net framework 4.0 and offers full native support for MS SQL2005 and above, including SQL 2012.

Full support for Citrix

CDC2014 has been designed to make it compatible with all versions of Citrix environments, including streamed applications.

Brand the interface in your style

CDC2014 is shipped with a modern theme that existing users will immediately recognise. If you want to design a theme to match your firm’s branding you can.

UI enhancements

CD Tracker and CD Entry have been merged into a single module called CD Time. The CD Time UI is flexible to take better advantage of the display capabilities available across different devices.

Ethical walls/barriers

New and improved ethical barrier functionality is supplied as standard with a range of options to prevent access or visibility on any client/matter. The information to support this can be imported from any other system, such as a PMS, as part of the standard configuration.

Multi-lingual and Unicode support

The user modules in CDC2014 can be setup in any number of languages to serve the needs of law firms that operate in different countries. There is no limit to the number of languages supported simultaneously and the database has been upgraded to be fully Unicode compatible.

Active Directory

In addition to the traditional way of adding users to Carpe Diem we now offer full Active Directory support as well. This will make creating and maintaining users much easier for system administrators.

New SSRS reporting system

The reporting tools in CDC2014 have been upgraded to support Microsoft SSRS. This will allow firms to create and design their own reports if they want to do so.
