“At first I was thinking, great, another thing I have to learn to use, but as soon as I went into Column and checked it out, it was a heck of a lot easier and a whole lot better.”
Kendal Hampton, Administrative Assistant, Fort Wayne Citilink, Indiana
“I sent in our legal notice using the new Column system and that was the simplest and easiest submission ever, I think everyone needs to take advantage of that!”
Manager for AECOM
“I like the ease of the site. It only takes a couple of minutes to upload my notice, see the proof, and quote! I love it!”
Legal Clerk for Lyon County, Kansas
"I place notices with multiple papers in Kansas and it makes my life a lot easier knowing there is the same process for everyone."
Paralegal at Millsap & Singer
"Sometimes it is very difficult placing a notice with a newspaper because you have to go to try and find their website, phone number, and/or email them with specific criteria. I wish I could simply place all of my legals through this tool. The processing fee is totally worth it."
Paralegal at Wilson, Brewer & Munson
"Before Column, it took a long time (sometimes 3 days) from start to finish, including mailing-in my notice, having it created and sent back to me for checking, and then approving it, etc. I like that it is immediate, and you can see the outlay as it will be printed. I like that I can look back at previous notices; I can check what notices have not been paid, and my affidavits are online too. Column will save you time, it's efficient and user friendly."
Village of Sherman Clerk-Treasurer
Kendal Hampton is the administrative assistant at Fort Wayne Citilink, the public transportation operator for the Fort Wayne and Allen County metro area in Indiana. One of the many tasks that falls on Hampton’s shoulders is posting public notices in Fort Wayne’s local newspaper — the Journal Gazette — for all of Citilink’s board and committee meetings.
Wilson, Brewer & Munson was recently asked by their local paper, the CourierTraveler, to start using Column to place public notices with their newspaper of record. Thanks to the new software, the law firm has reduced time spent on public notice by 50% and gained confidence that they are getting the best deals for their clients.
Rhonda Zinn, regional accounts manager at the Butler County Times-Gazette in El Dorado, Kansas, likes that her customers took to using Column as quickly as she did: as soon as she showed them how to use the software to file a notice once, they picked it up right away. “Sometimes I encounter customers who aren’t as thrilled as I am about learning a new system,” she admitted. “But once they try Column for the first time, they’re always good with it. It’s all about taking that initial step. I’ve found that after everyone uses it to do one notice, there aren’t any more problems.”
