On networks with two or more users, AbacusLaw requires a server or PC not assigned to an individual user. Abacus specifies a dedicated server, because data security is valuable to your practice. Any workstation running multiple programs (desktop or laptop) has a much higher chance of locking up and corrupting irreplaceable data. It’s like storing your matters in a busy apartment complex rather than a quiet, secured house—all that coming and going is bound to cause wear and tear and unnecessary vulnerability.
