Fast, flexible, and future-ready – a solution that meets financial operations challenges and improves a firm’s business management

As change sweeps through the legal industry, law firms have to keep up.  They need to run their operations with optimum efficiency and effectiveness to maximize their fee-earning capacity and client satisfaction. Billing operations and financial operations are complex, but with a robust financial system in place, that complexity can be significantly reduced. Pro Billing for legal is designed with functionality to solve these challenges by delivering standardized processes and validation of financial recording that is predictable, efficient and straightforward. Pro Billing for legal manages critical aspects of your firm’s business and practice management operations: service to cash, financial management, procure to pay, and HR processes with an award-winning, intuitive user experience accessible on any device.

Billing

Clients examine their bills carefully: they expect accuracy, timeliness, and transparency. The billing process needs to fulfill these criteria, outlining the exact time spent on each matter by partners, associates, paralegals, and support staff. Financial management can become problematic if data is not recorded accurately or acted on promptly.

 Pro Billing for legal streamlines and automates business operations across the organization, providing real-time visibility of the WIP management process for workflow monitoring and ease of draft bill editing and creation.

This is achieved through seamless digital workflows: intelligent verification engines manage against client billing guidelines and eBilling standards to assist in the reduction of write-downs and additional discounts while automating formerly manual tasks. Robust pricing engines allow for any combination of client pricing requests to be met and easily managed at any level.
