When Failed Integration Turns into Wrongful Incarceration

By: Katie Pusz, Copywriter, ImageSoft Unless you’re a part of the super cool, niche group of people that doesn’t talk much but, when you do, it’s about software, you probably don’t get too pumped up about the word “integration.” We, on the other hand, could talk about the transformative effects of powerfully integrative software until … Continue reading When Failed Integration Turns into Wrongful Incarceration

What the “Third Wave” Means for Court Technology

By Dave Hawkins, CEO, ImageSoft I attended the Inc. magazine GrowCo Conference in New Orleans last month. Somewhere between the seafood gumbo, the crawfish étouffée, and the jumbalaya, Steve Case of AOL fame served up a prophetic message based on his newly revised book, The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future.

Hacking Outside the Box

And that perspective turns … Continue reading Change and Continuity
