Apps for Florida Mediators

Arbitration Mediation

What technology and apps should mediators use?

Thanks to the Florida Dispute Resolution Center for inviting me to their 23rd annual conference in Orlando, Florida on July 30-31, 2015.

Our session, Technology and Apps for Mediators, explained what technology you need to run an effective and profitable mediation office.  We also discussed iPhone and iOS apps for mediators.  The emphasis was on the need to use technology to improve services and gain more mediation business.  Lawyers are using technology.  If they cannot use these tools when mediating with you, they will go elsewhere.
