Whether you run your own legal practice or are a partner or associate, you know how easily you can become bogged down keeping track of clients, projects, and billable vs. non-billable hours.
And for many attorneys, time management is a daily struggle.
How can you possibly make phone calls, respond to emails, log your expenses, meet with prospective clients, litigate, and still have enough time to actually do work?
More and more, time management software has begun to provide attorneys like you with better ideas for how to get it all done in less time… which can translate to earning more in less time.
However, there are many time management and project management solutions available today, and it can be difficult to know which to choose. Every online business management system seems to have its strengths and weaknesses, depending on the needs of the company or individual using it.
For example, some software is excellent in encouraging intra-company communication, and is helpful with staying on top of tasks, but offers little or nothing in the way of keeping track of time spent. Likewise, there are other programs that allow you to bill for your time with one click of a mouse, but aren’t helpful in assigning and communicating about tasks.
The need for a more integrated practice management solution has led many to shun their old organizational systems and search for a more complete business management tool.
And this one, it seems, does it all.
It’s called Bill4Time. (Free Trial available here.) This “Web-Based Time Billing Software” does everything from tracking billable time, to managing client data, to creating invoices. The software also integrates with QuickBooks for more easier, and more convenient accounting.
Bill4Time also includes several features specifically for legal professionals. These include
- ABA task codes
- LEDES export for invoices
- Litigation Advisor export for invoices
- Trust accounting, and
- Trust reports and summaries on invoices.
According to Bill4Time attorney users, these features are helping attorneys like you to accomplish mundane bookkeeping tasks faster and with less stress.
And that means you can spend less time on non-recoverable administrative tasks, which leaves you with more billable hours.
And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?
These days, it seems like managing your time can take almost as much time as working on projects and consulting with clients. This is why time-saving products and promises have become so popular. Do you think you could benefit from using time or business management software?
