About the Company
Jurismedia‘s first interest-calculation product, created in 1992, was first used in the legal community, hence the company’s name. Because of the legal profession’s specialized needs, the software has 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 has evolved to serve a wide variety of industries and clients in 38 countries. These industries 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; and both small and large, private and public, corporations…
With its team of seasoned programmers and experts in interest calculation, Jurismedia works very closely with clients to constantly improve its products. Service is also one of the key benefits of working with us. If you need help, you can count on our team!
As an attorney in the early 1990s, Marc Gelinas notes that the hand calculator and basic spreadsheets are the tools of choice for the legal profession when it comes to interest calculation. Errors are rampant and interest is often simply ignored! So, Mr. Gelinas commissions programmers to develop interest-calculation software that will be powerful enough to meet the particular needs of the law profession. He knows it must be efficient and user-friendly for lawyers who may not be computer savvy. 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.
