An Expert’s Opinion

Sitting Down with Robert Rice

Recently, I had the pleasure of sitting down with 3545’s newest member of our management team as of January 1st, 2018, Robert Rice. Robert, husband and father of two based in Dallas, Texas, is well-known professionally for his consulting and programming skills. At 3545, where he has been a team member since the inception of the company, he’s respected as a technology expert and well-liked because he is just a really nice guy. The following is an excerpt of our conversation where Robert discusses some big questions surrounding his role as a technologist and how he fell into that role in the first place.

Timeslips 2018

We are often asked “Should I update?”. The answer is usually “it depends”. Factors like what version are you currently running, and what is your operating environment are as important as looking at the new features. While you may have heard rumors that Timeslips is going to a subscription model, this is not true. As Timeslips certified consultants, we can sell you a perpetual license version, with or without a support plan, or a subscription version. The choice is yours and we can help you choose.

In Loving Memory of Robin Birmingham

Words cannot express the sadness 35★45 feels as we announce the death of our dear friend and partner, Robin Birmingham. For twenty-two years she has been the heart and soul of the company. Robin lost her fight with Good Pasture’s Syndrome on Sunday evening, April 17, 2016. She is survived by her devoted and loving husband, John Birmingham. John and I were by her side when she passed.

Converting to a New Software Program?

It is inevitable that you will be faced with the difficult decision to change software programs some day.  When that time comes you can expect that you are headed for a rocky journey to get to the other side.  It seems like such a simple thing to stop using one program and start using another.  However, it is much like moving from one residence to another.

Timeline Report – Business Pulse – Not Just for Billing

Just wanted to give everyone an illustration that BUSINESS PULSE is NOT JUST FOR BILLING. Below is the final report generator panel for a custom report Tommy and I built (rather Tommy built and I watched and learned). It is a unified Timeline report which aggregates all the ancillary activity records: notes, calls, tasks, billing, documents, and email.
