Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
eBillingHub®, the world leader in simplifying electronic billing for law firms, today announced that the national law firm Foley Hoag LLP has selected the eBillingHub for its electronic billing solutions. The eBillingHub will reduce the complexity caused by the increasing volume of electronic billing and will produce a predictable, dependable and efficient e-billing process, benefiting both clients and the firm.
Foley Hoag is a leading national law firm, headquartered in Boston and with a global client base. The firm recently joined The American Lawyer's "A-List 2008" of the top 50 law firms in America, a prestigious grouping of firms based on diversity, pro bono, associate satisfaction, and revenues per lawyer. In an effort to control the operational costs of electronic billing, Foley Hoag selected eBillingHub to serve as the basis for gaining not only the operational benefits but also the visibility through reports and dashboards, keys to understanding real-time electronic billing.
"Moving to an easy, web interfaced, e-billing management solution will be hugely beneficial to both our firm and the clients we serve," said David Kruger, Controller of Foley Hoag. "Our job in finance is to deliver bills timely and under the exact specifications that our client needs. We envision that eBillingHub will give us better control over electronic billing, greatly automating and standardizing the process."
The eBillingHub helps law firms speed up the collections process, reduce the complexity of electronic invoice submissions, eliminate billing backlogs and common submission errors, and minimize or eliminate the need for additional staff to administer electronic billing. For law firms, using the eBillingHub results in improved cash flow, increased partner distributions, and enhanced client service.
"We are thrilled to welcome Foley Hoag to our growing list of clients who understand that law firm electronic billing is more than a workload issue and that hiring more people is not the answer," stated Gabriela Isutriz, eBillingHub's Chief Strategic Officer and co-founder. "Innovative firms like Foley Hoag understand that they can manage their growing electronic billing volume and the subsequent increase in billing vendors; and actually benefit from eBilling by addressing the business process. By implementing the appropriate tools, like eBillingHub, the firm can gain a competitive advantage."
Initially released in 2004, eBillingHub uses a service-oriented architecture and Web services standards for its integration with practice management systems such as Thomson Reuters Elite and ProLaw, ADERANT and RainMaker. With hundreds of customers and service providers using eBillingHub and its LEDES Toolkit™, the eBillingHub is considered the de facto standard for electronic billing for law firms of all sizes.
