Sh*t Excel Users Say

Case NinjaWe recently launched a case management application called Case Ninja which is a commercial version of the data management system we have been using in-house at IPCybercrime since 2004.  With it, we have tracked our tens of thousands of Intellectual Property cases without the loss of one record or report.  The cutting-edge technology used to write the Case Ninja  application is called TrackVia.  Below is a video that anyone who uses Excel to manage their cases can relate.  If you are still using spreadsheets to manage your cases, you need to call us at (972) 422-2100 for a free Case Ninja trial.

Tenth Anniversary of the Jackpot

Happy Tenth Birthday, IPCybercrime!

Ten years ago on this date you may have seen a goofball driving down Washington Boulevard in Culver City blasting the Tom Petty song ‘Free Falling’ while joyfully singing out the car window as if he were Tom Cruise in ‘Jerry Maguire‘.  That was me.  The reason for this occasion was that, just like the title character of the aforementioned film, I quit my job with no safety net or certain future in order to start my own business.

Six years prior to that, I married the love of my life.  Believe it or not, the anniversary of our marriage doesn’t equate to me as much as the day I told my wife that we were never going to have to have jobs again.  I stopped off at the grocery store on the corner of Doheny and Beverly and came home with that chilled  ten-dollar bottle of California sparkling wine.

Rob at work in 2001

I began my company in the kitchen of my one-bedroom apartment on Oakhurst Drive in Beverly Hills.  All I had was a desk, a fax machine, and a computer that I assembled myself from scraps.  I spent the next week or two learning Quickbooks.  During this time I attended the International AntiCounterfeiting Coalition’s Fall Meeting in Las Vegas.  This was the first time I showed up in public as Rob Holmes, proprietor.  Just as for my father before me, this organization and its members are my family and home.  I look forward to spending my tenth IACC Fall Meeting in Orlando with these fine people.

Since 2001 I have carved a niche for myself in the areas of Intellectual Property and the Internet.  I catch bad guys and get paid for it.  Half of the time I’m sitting on my ass at Starbucks.  Life is good.  Thanks to all of you who have made this a possibility for me.  I love you all.  Let’s have another great decade.

Now I’m going to finish my coffee.

One of the things I teach in my investigation classes is the importance of being able to manage the data you acquire throughout many investigations.  Unfortunately, there is nothing suitable on the market to help you do so — until now.  I have been working closely with a company called TrackVia to make my in-house database available for sale to the public.  This new product (aptly named Case Ninja) is exactly what we use at IPCybercrime.  I am giving a free webinar to promote this new amazing product at 2pm EDT on Wednesday July 15th.  Oh, and we’re giving away a free iPad to one of you.
