About the Company
Jurismedia‘s first interest calculation product dates back to 1992 and was first used in the legal community, thus the company’s name. Because of the legal profession’s very peculiar needs, the software evolved over the years into an extremely flexible tool called Margill, whose computations include regular and irregular loans, mortgages, leases, lines of credit, investments, present value, pre and post judgment interest, etc.
Margill evolved to service a wide variety of industries and its clients in over 37 countries include:
- large and small law offices, judges, accountants, governments, cities and towns, banks, community and economic lenders, mortgage brokers, trade unions, insurance, leasing, construction and land development companies, small and large private and public corporations…
With a team of seasoned programmers and experts in interest calculation, Jurismedia works very closely with its clients to constantly improve its products. Service is also one of our key benefits. If you need help, you can count on our team!
Back in the early 90s, as an attorney, Marc Gelinas noticed that the hand calculator and some basic spreadsheets were the weapons of choice for the legal profession when it came to interest calculation. Errors were rampant or could be avoided… by simply ignoring the interest portion! Mr. Gelinas commissioned programmers to develop an interest calculation software that would need to be powerful because of the very peculiar needs in the law profession yet be user-friendly for lawyers who, well, were not up to speed when it came to computers…. Jurismedia’s first software LogiCalc is created for DOS.
LogiCalc becomes Margill and is now Windows based. It now offers even more powerful calculation tools.
Margill now offers and monitors over 150 interest tables (legal rates, central bank rates, bank rates, etc.) and indexation tables (consumer price indices, stock market indices) for use in its software.
