Industry eFiling pioneer expands in Illinois with File & Serve Illinois, a customized application for the statewide eFileIL system.
IRVING, TEXAS (May 15, 2017) – As part of the eFiling expansion by the Supreme Court of Illinois, File & ServeXpress launched File & Serve Illinois today. The launch signifies the fourth statewide implementation in the company’s current portfolio and further expands the reach of law firms that do business in more than one jurisdiction or state.
“As the first eFiling provider in the nation, File & ServeXpress has led the way for 26 years. Our goal is to provide a nationwide solution for law firms that do business in multiple jurisdictions and states,” said Tammy Carter, CEO of File & ServeXpress. “Today, we are the only company that can eFile into some of the most important courts for large law firms, including the Washington, D.C. Superior Courts, Delaware Chancery Court, Harris and Dallas County District Courts, San Francisco Superior Court, and Madison County 3rd Circuit Court, as well as eServe into many complex cases for the Los Angeles Superior Court, which makes us well-positioned to support law firms in Illinois.”
File & Serve Illinois is a new eFiling application created specifically for the Illinois Courts system that interfaces with the state’s electronic filing manager. File & ServeXpress is no stranger to Illinois courts. The company already provides eFiling and eService for mass torts and other civil cases in the state, including asbestos litigation in the Madison 3rd Judicial Circuit Court for more than 12 years and Cook County for 10 years. File & ServeXpress brings not only local experience but the expertise of developing and supporting eFiling systems across 30 states and the District of Columbia.
“We clearly understand that expanding an eFiling system statewide necessitates more than just technology, it requires an understanding of how law firms practice and how to provide value by utilizing technology to improve efficiency,” said Carter. “Not all eFiling companies are created equal, some are merely filing tools. We partner with our law firms by listening and offering technology solutions that combine with services to empower our users to gain productivity in their practice areas and back offices.”
File & Serve Illinois offers a flat rate for all features, so no confusion over multiple pricing plans or subscriptions. With flexible training opportunities, filers can take advantage of live webinars, which are being offered frequently around the launch. In addition, there are recorded webinars, online videos, and opportunities for new employee training, and firm-specific training.
With File & Serve Illinois, firms can take advantage of monthly billing and expedited bill reconciliation; all with a dedicated firm account manager for ongoing support. Document storage is included, plus through File & ServeXpress, firms have access to eService for complex and asbestos cases nationwide, Concierge eFiling in multiple jurisdictions, and the most extensive and experienced customer support team in the industry.
