Prompt and comprehensive lawyer time entry is critical to law firm client service and profitability. Yet, over the past two decades, little has changed in the time entry software arena. Today, a growing number of lawyers, well accustomed to a consumer-grade software experience, are demanding better time recording tools that are easier to use, responsive and always accessible.
Legacy time recording products are no longer up to the task. And while new tools are emerging (and several vendors are re-tooling legacy options), only one solution provides the user experience, automated activity capture, e-billing compliance, information security and data management capabilities that can meet the stringent expectations of lawyers, IT, finance teams and firm management – Intapp Time.
The Intapp Advantage – Proven Track Record, Unmatched Technology
Intapp Time has been chosen by over 150,000 users across more than
Intapp Time integrates the industry's most adopted, most sophisticated time entry software (formerly called DTE Axiom) and automated activity capture software (formerly called Time Builder) to deliver a single, unified experience. It's called 360° Time Management because it extends across devices (so desktop timers are immediately accessible on mobile devices) and addresses critical elements of the work-to-bill lifecycle previously inaccessible to lawyers, such as real-time e-billing validation and compliance checking at the point of entry.
The Intapp Vision – 360° Time Management
By providing a 360° approach to time management, Intapp Time enables firms to address every aspect of time recording with one easy-to-use product, offering:
Cross-Device Synchronization – Intapp Time ensures that lawyers always have immediate access to their information, updating in real time across all their devices. For instance, desktop timers are immediately accessible on mobile devices and time entries created on the go are instantly available for an assistant to review on their desktop.
Automated, Intelligent Time Capture – Intapp delivers the industry's most advanced capture technology to embed activity data directly within the time recording workflow. Rather than starting with a blank screen, lawyers can create time entries from a list of captured activities, generated by monitoring key applications they use throughout the day (document creation, email, calendar, phone, mobile devices). Most importantly, Intapp Time assigns durations and client codes automatically, so lawyers can simply drag and drop the activity to create a complete, accurate time entry.
Real-Time Compliance – Intapp Time provides point-of-entry compliance with billing guidelines (sourced locally or from eBillingHub) and outside counsel guidelines, giving lawyers instant feedback that allows them to correct errors on the spot, as well as enforcement of information barriers and phase/task activity code requirements.
The net result is accelerated bill generation, fewer write-downs, and a reduction of ethical risk.
Actionable Analytics – To stay competitive and better serve their clients, firms need a better understanding of how lawyers spend their Time. Intapp Time enhances business intelligence by exposing time data before bill generation (where most firms typically analyze their time data), allowing firms to get a clear picture of the true work that goes into a matter.
This data can help inform firm pricing strategies, budgets and staffing requirements, as well as identify time recording problem areas, enabling firms to create targeted incentives and training programs to improve time hygiene.
