Time and Billing

Effortless Transaction Processing

Efficient billing workflow combined with accurate tracking of time and expense records are signs of a well-run firm. Great systems should allow for effortless transaction processing, thereby ensuring firms capitalize on every potential opportunity to maximize revenue. Equally important is the ability to easily and accurately produce bills and monitor the revenue they produce. Poor systems are cumbersome, so managing time and expenses becomes difficult, billable monies are
missed, cost advances are not efficiently recovered, and profits are lost.

PerfectLaw® Time & Billing is a full-featured billing system which offers an easy-to-use, intuitive interface, several automatic time capturing features to ensure accurate tracking of daily activities, and the ability to request and apply trust and retainer funds. The cash receipts processor applies client payments at the timekeeper level, allowing for accurate, comprehensive attorney productivity reporting. And, with the added synergy only an All-in-One® system can provide, PerfectLaw® Time & Billing automatically creates time entries for front office workflow processes, profiles bills, allows users to work both on and offline, and much more.
