Denver Divorce Mediators Update Technology
to Continue Innovation of the Family and Divorce Mediation
Colorado Center for Divorce Mediation™’s Substantial Office Technology Updates in 2007!
“When you’re through
changing . . . you’re through!”
- William Safire (Pulitzer Prize winning columnist)
Consistent with our commitment to remain Denver and
Colorado’s premier divorce mediators and to better serve our clients, we continue to innovate and evolve our
tools and mediation process.
In 2007, we replaced our conventional peer-to-peer network
with a dedicated and powerful Intel Quad-Core Xeon® processor based server
running Microsoft Small Business Server®.
This new network structure enhances
our system reliability, office security,
and data backup’s integrity. It also
allows our staff’s twenty-four hour on-line access to essential data, by means
of an encrypted VPN, or virtual private network.
Computer Workstations Replaced, With Client‐Side Docking
and Multi-Monitor Support
office workstation computers were replaced with the latest

clients working with us in mediation of their divorce.
Planned Future Innovation
As we have from the inception of our
business, we continue at Divorce Resolutions® to seek out other fresh approaches
and innovative practices — in our mission, as professional mediators, of easing the challenges of divorce and
separation. (Our leadership in this regard has been the
subject of national acclaim. See, for example, the respected blog,
Technology in the Mediation Room: Innovation from
Colorado Divorce Mediators, and
Divorce Mediators Update Technology to Innovate Divorce Mediation Process.)
2008, we plan continued evolution of our custom tools in
this regard, including expansion of the scope of our client
education through Powerpoint® presentations. (These
address key issues in the Colorado divorce court process and
our work as Colorado and Denver divorce mediators.)
