Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What exactly is ADR Notable?

Are you committed to the concept of personal mediation, yet still wish there was a technology tool to help you with all the busywork?  Well, that’s exactly where ADR Notable can help!  It is a robust tool to help you during a session, complemented by an array of case and practice management tools for the tasks that need to be done before and after a case.  Onboard your clients, let them upload case documents themselves, and while reviewing those documents or during pre-session phone calls, start adding notes to your Noteboard.  And there you go, a list of issues to be addressed, waiting for you when the session starts!  Then, during a session, capture notes, sort them, link them to each other, and record proposals and counters.  Agreements reached?  Use the Term Sheet tool, pulling in your own standard clauses as needed.  When the case is over, generate an automatic summary report, securely delete your notes and files, and pull up your time log to help prepare your invoice.

But ADR Notable is much more than just an office tool.  Because being able to capture, view, sort, link and revise your notes puts you in the best possible position to effectively help generate movement toward agreement.   ADR Notable frees you up to do what you do bestRead more about ADR Notable or better yet, give it a try.  Get started now with your 14-day free trial.

Yes. ADR Notable is a tool to help mediators before, during, and after sessions that are held in person or remotely.  Since March 2020, mediators have been wonderfully adaptive in learning to use a wide range of video conferencing platforms to provide safe, secure, and responsible services to their clients.  And ADR Notable will work equally well with whatever platform you choose.  Read more about using ADR Notable in a remote session.
