How to increase billable hour accuracy and improve collections- law firm solution

Partnering with leading technology integrators, 3D Merchant Services is expanding attorneys’ billable hour accuracy while at the same time reducing administrative time, and increasing cash flow. Increase billing accuracy with automated logging of all calls, whether in the office, or on your cell phone. Then empower customers to pay their bills securely online, and optionally send them electronic bills (EBPP)

Small law firms with 1-5 attorneys especially need tools to reduce administrative time in order to maximize profits. For small firms, an accurate cell phone call logging solution may have the biggest impact to accurately capture billable hours, and immediately assign it to a client and matter code.  Larger firms probably already have a phone log billing system, but if not, then combining the desktop time log, with PBX call logger and mobile phone logger closes the loop for all time tracking. Add the CenPOS payment processing solution, and you can bill more accurately and collect monies due in a secure and cost effective manner.

As previously reported, attorneys can accurately log billable time with a new innovative mobile time tracker. A key feature is the pop-up on incoming calls; when you hang up, you can immediately assign the call to a client, assign pre-defined matter codes and even enter notes. The length of call is prefilled for you.  Data is all accessible back in the office via a web based dashboard for later modification and export into your accounting software.
