As partners in a large investigative firm, the founders of FactBox were frustrated by the lack of options. Professionals like us and our litigator clients dealt in huge sets of complex information, but software for professionals was either bespoke on-premise software solutions for tens of thousands of dollars or else a consumer app with a more pricey "business" label. We had great memories and great workarounds. But we also had frustrating wasted time, duplicative efforts and late nights.
We founded FactBox in 2013 and spent two years beta testing. We set out to make FactBox fit existing workflows, pass high security standards and make it affordable for a variety of legal practices. We are proud to say that FactBox now fills the void in professional software, and our ecstatic, loyal users agree.
