Legal Practice Management Reporting analysis

Nowadays Legal Firms have come to recognise that as profit-generating businesses it is vital that partners and business managers have up to date reporting & analysis facilities available to them to monitor performance throughout the firm. With the LawWare Report Centre & the LawWare Productivity Centre this sophistication is readily available.

Fully integrated in the LawWare relational Database, the Reporting & Analysis Module provides:-

  • Client Accounting Reporting
  • Firm’s Financial well-being reporting
  • Target Reporting
  • Exception Reporting
  • Productivity Analysis
  • Annual & Monthly comparison Reporting
  • KPI trend analysis.

Specifically designed to integrate with the complete set of modules provided in the LawWare Integrated Practice Management Suite, the Report Centre and the Productivity Centre Modules provide an invaluable managerial tool for analysing both financial information generated within the Accounts Module and also information from the Activity & Time Recording Module to produce data on the overall performance and financial well-being of the firm.

While most practice management systems restrict their reporting analysis functions to accounts information, LawWare provides a comprehensive real-time picture of a firm’s overall health directly on the desktop of partners and practice managers.

Obviously it is better to nip a developing issue in the bud before it develops into a full-blown crisis, but how can these buds be identified? On an individual basis LawWare can indicate areas where particular attention should be paid. The Partner and the Fee Earner notifications will summarise certain key performance indictors in an easy to read form. The Partner/Fee Earner can click on any aspect and drill down into it in order to explore the instances that have been alerted.
