- About Us
Advantage Software is owned by court reporters who have been developing CAT software since 1980 – not by an impersonal conglomerate of dozens of companies involved in everything from heavy equipment to metal processing. We are passionately committed to protecting the future of the profession that has been so good to us, and we understand your needs because we serve only court reporters.
Over the years, we have developed several powerful programs, including the popular FREE Bridge trial-viewing software, that is available to all reporters free of charge regardless of whose products they use. While other companies attempt to retain their customers with proprietary protocols and products that can only be used to full advantage together, we openly publish our standards and assist other companies with their implementation. We will never attempt to gain an unfair competitive advantage by using proprietary standards that limit your choices.
We’ve earned the loyalty of our customers by adding every feature and enhancement requested – without charge and without regard to our bottom line. And we’ve earned our reputation as the technology leader through the most progressive research and development in the industry. Our exclusive patented technology lets you forget about complicated writing theories, and simply write what you hear. Even if you write complex, mis-stroked words that aren’t in your dictionary, Eclipse magically tunes in to your personal writing style with uncanny accuracy to produce virtually perfect translations no matter which theory you use. And with new updates constantly available on our website, you can be confident that our products will remain state-of-the-art. Is it any wonder that more Realtime Champions choose Eclipse than any other software?
As reporters ourselves, we know that providing superior writers and software is only half the battle. What good are the best products if you can’t reach us whenever you need us? Because support issues don’t always arise at convenient times, our friendly technicians are available to help you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. And because we know you won’t get the high quality of support you deserve from a technician who is rousted out of bed at 2:00 a.m. on a Sunday morning, we physically staff our offices almost 24 hours a day. Compare that to other companies whose technicians are only available via pagers after regular business hours, if you can reach them at all.
Before investing your hard-earned dollars in a writer, software, or peripherals, you owe it to yourself to see them all. But save the best for last – and discover why thousands of reporters are switching to Advantage Software.
"All these years, the same owner, the same senior programmer; the only thing that doesn't remain the same is Eclipse, which, like good wine, gets better year by year by year."
