Integrated time recording and billing, straightforward billing procedures and the ability to keep tabs on your time both in and out of the office.
Even in this day and age, time recording can often be regarded as something of a chore. With LawWare, time recording is an integral feature of the software and operates seamlessly as you work.
Even if the majority of your work is fixed fee, time recording can be used as a valuable management tool to help you establish the real cost and value of the work to your business.
Bills can be generated at the press of a button with the option to bill in full or interim bill and the ability to include a Time Cost Statement should it be required.
The system also gives you the ability to customise the look and layout of your invoices to suit your house-style.
Whether you’re working from home, court or visiting clients, LawWare comes with a mobile app giving you the option to record time on the go as well as look at case files and the state of the latest bill.
The app is designed to work with all types of mobile phone and tablet – allowing you to take your work anywhere and keep track of your time.
Either loved or hated, time recording was once seen as the key element of client-charging calculations, but with LawWare the Activity & Time Recording Module is much more than a simple time-recording tool. This module is part of LawWare’s Matter Management suite that aims to bring generic file administration and file access firmly into the realm of IT in the 21st Century.
Specifically designed to integrate with the complete set of modules provided in the LawWare Practice Management Suite, the Activity & Time Recording Module provides an invaluable managerial tool for analysing the cost of individual transactions, identifying areas of staff productivity and profitability, and offering valuable risk management facilities.
While many time recording systems involve the separate preparation of time sheets, which are then laboriously entered into a system by support staff, LawWare provides the complete simple to use activity & time recording function directly on the desktop.
In keeping with the LawWare ethos, entries are logged real-time by individual fee-earners and are then immediately available throughout the LawWare suite.
LawWare uniquely makes your Activity & Time Recording Information available through the suite of modules on a real-time basis ensuring that the true level of time expenditure on client work is accurately recorded and utilised for managerial and fee-charging purposes.
Gone are the days of either guessing at the time involved in completing a transaction, or painstakingly adding up the number of copy-letters on a file to determine the work level involved.
In are the days of a truly integrated system where fee-earners input brief or detailed file notes on-screen as appropriate.
This information is then immediately available across the complete suite of modules for the purposes of Invoice Generation and Time Management. Indeed the savings in unbilled time could in themselves soon pay for the LawWare Activity & Time Recording Module.
With LawWare your firm can benefit from accurate recording and reporting of time expenditure and cross-practice access to on-screen file entries. Imagine instead of searching for a paper file, being able to access the latest details at the touch of a button. The system supports two or more members of staff accessing the same file records simultaneously. Have you ever wished to be able to access the details of work carried out on a file directly from your home PC to complete a vital transaction out-of-hours – all this is possible with the LawWare Activity & Time Recording module forming part of the LawWare Integrated Practice management Suite.
Our clients range from small start-up legal practices to multi-partner, multi-site firms.
As the first commercial user of LawWare back in 1998, we have had no hesitation in remaining with the product through its development. We thoroughly recommend it to any firm looking for a practice management system.
The helpdesk is exceptionally good. Whatever the query there is always a human being there to help. No leaving messages or being advised to go to a website. The best computer service for solicitors I have ever used!
The linking of documents and casefiles saves so much time! I have experience of several accounts packages and I like that LawWare is simple to use and easy to learn. Support is quick and effective and staff are helpful and courteous.
I have worked with a number of Case Management providers over the years but have not come across anything with the attention to detail and thoroughness of LawWare. My colleagues and I have not been disappointed.
I can’t imagine trying to be a law firm in the 21st Century without 21st Century IT systems. Having a ‘single system’ that underpins all the work, whether we are in the office or out, is an integral part of what we are building.
The level of support is the main benefit using this system. The system itself once you have had training is simple and easy to use. We have a great relationship with LawWare and the ongoing support is second to none.
Significant preparation was required to configure and import the data from our old firm. We had to get all clients onto the new system and then learn how to use it. We just find it very easy to use, much easier than our old system.
It’s a big help that you can speak to the boss directly. The support team takes a lot of the technological stress away and, as LawWare continues to build relationships and integrations with other suppliers, it makes our life much easier.
Being a busy litigator with a growing firm it is incredibly useful to be able to view my files from any location with some form of internet connection. I am a fan, and want to keep working with LawWare to make a good product great.
The switch to the new LawCloud system, which is still on-going, has gone very well. We found the LawWare team without exception to be very helpful and knowledgeable. All queries are followed up and dealt with promptly.
