Have you ever wanted to generate a document from within a client case in Tritek, such as a form or a letter, utilizing a template you created in your favorite word processing program, and have all the necessary client case information automatically filled into the document for you? Well then this is the product you're looking for. At the request of Tritek, I have designed this "document automation system" which will allow you to build your own documents and forms in MS Word or WordPerfect (or use already existing ones) and have Tritek automatically fill them in with client case data for you, or even let you input data from the keyboard directly.

Easy-Docs Automation System (EDA) is a supplemental program built for integrating Tritek Legal Case Management with your wordprocessor ...either Microsoft Office 2000 Word or Corel Office 2000 WordPerfect (depending on which EDA version you get).EDA is designed according to Tritek's specifications for their clients who desire easy-to-build automated customizable forms for use with Tritek's Legal Case Management System. EDA automates merging data from Tritek client cases into user custom documents (forms, letters, whatever). In addition, EDA allows you to input data from the keyboard during a merge.The EDA system was designed utilizing the VBA programming environment provided by Microsoft. The applet is not sold to you by me. EDA is provided to you as a customization service.
You build your document(s) inserting special variables as placeholders for information to be merged from a client case in Tritek. The document can be saved normally or as a template, but essentially it acts just like a template. Your documents are added to a "pick-list" in Tritek. While working on a case within Tritek, you can choose a custom document to be opened up in your wordprocessor. Data from the client case is automatically "merged" into the document/form you specified, replacing the placeholders. If there are multiple possible selections for a particular entry, EDA will prompt the user to make a selection. Your documents can even be customized to prompt the user to enter text from the keyboard. As well, you may easily customize the prompts to help you better identify the correct selections and entries.After the merge, the document is automatically saved by Tritek to the client case folder. The finished document is displayed on screen where you may then edit it just as you would any other. When you are finished editing, printing, etc., you simply save the document (its already named) and exit your wordprocessor. You are then returned to the client case in Tritek. Tritek tracks all your client documents for future reference from within the client case.° Simply place special "variables" anywhere in your documents for Tritek case data to go

You actually apply for a "Registration Key" for a specific "Users License Package" after installing EDA, sometime within the initial thirty-day trial evaluation period. EDA will prompt you with instructions for obtaining and entering your registration key, as well as adding users.During the 30 day trial evaluation period you can use the unregistered EDA System on up to 3 user workstations. After thirty days you must obtain your Registration Key to continue using the software. You can obtain your Registration Key either Online or via Postal method (see the addendum below).

I must receive your request for your refund within the thirty day trial evaluation period.Don't worry if you register late, there is no late penalty and you will still be able to obtain and enter a registration key for your already installed package; however, EDA will cease to function after thirty days if you do not send in for your registration key before then.° Purchase and Download the initial software package and run it.

You may contact me for a quote.

In order to facilitate those of you who have been waiting patiently, I am releasing EDA System for Corel Office 2000 prior to having my ecommerce site up and running. What this means is some of the instructions in EDA regarding online purchase via credit card are not in effect just yet...Follow the instructions above for downloading EDA,
Then, in order to install and register the EDA System you will need to follow these instructions:
The pass-codes required are as follows:1) Obtaining your Installer Password. This is required to run the installer. For now you will need to obtain your install password directly from me. Send a check made out to Hawkeye Computer Engineering to the Nevada address below. Refer to the User Option Packages information above to determine the amount. If you include your email address I can get your Password to you sooner.2) Obtaining your Registration Key. This code is required for final Registration of your EDA System. You can use EDA in trial mode for up to 30 days without obligation, after that it will stop functioning.After setting up and running the EDA System, each time you run it you will be prompted with a serial number and directions for sending me information for obtaining your Registration Key. You typically have two methods available, Online and Postal, however, the Online method needs to be "adjusted" temporarily:° If you desire a license package for ten or more users then, since you have to mail in an additional payment anyway, your best bet is to use the Floppy~Postal method. Just follow the directions in EDA while its running. If you wish you can use the following method instead, but I still need to receive your payment in order to issue you your Registration Key.° If you wish to register your EDA System for five users then you will have already paid ...so, unless you don't have email capability, you will want to select the Request/Online button option during EDA runtime.
° Afterward, instead of going to my website, you will want to simply email the requested info to me along with your request for a 5user license.
You will find a folder on your Drive C: (of the machine you used to select Request/Online) called "Company Info" with important files in it ...you will need to email this to me with your request.
