The LAWFUSION system contains comprehensive Legal Time Recording software that is extremely easy to use. As the accurate recording of time is essential to any legal practice, it is important that the Time Recording system suits the type of work being recorded. To this aim, we have introduced multiple methods of recording time, combined with a comprehensive range of monitoring, reporting and management tools.
Fee Earner Timers – have been built into the Fee Earner Desktop interface to offer an instant timer facility. The click of a button launches a Time Recording Timer. The system can have up to nine timers active at once so switching between tasks is easy. The booking of non-chargeable time is catered for as well as recording for work prior to an account being opened. Notes can be recorded and also quick launch activities configured.
When working within a case, our legal time recording software detects which task is being performed and can prompt a Fee Earner to book the appropriate time, presenting a series of defaults for them to select from. The creation of notes, receipt of post, production of documents or any other task can all be prompted for time to be booked. This feature has been very well received with clients reporting an increase in billable time being recorded.
Crime Time Recording – We quickly recognised that criminal lawyers needed a specialised system catering for their needs; therefore we have adapted our software to create an efficient crime time recording system. Time can be recorded quickly and accurately across multiple files if necessary. It also allows for the entry of billing codes and notes so the completion of the crime forms for both Magistrates and Crown Court cases can be done automatically when combined with the LAWFUSION Case Management system.
Time Sheet Entry – This feature is normally used by administrators or cashiers who enter paper based time sheets into the system. It has a quick entry facility retaining previous details so multiple file activities can be booked quickly.
