Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) November 8, 2010
IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of time capture software for law firms, today announced that Field Fisher Waterhouse, a full service European law firm with five offices and 370 lawyers, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2011 Knowlist Awards in the category of “Business Project of the Year“ and the 2010 Legal Week British Legal Awards in the category of “Best Use of Technology.”
“Our firm made a strategic investment in IntApp Time Builder to ensure that our time recording processes are as efficient and effective as possible, particularly for those fee-earners who work on many matters concurrently and away from our offices. We’re very pleased that the success we’ve achieved with the product has been recognized by the industry,” said Paul Heywood, IT Director, Field Fisher Waterhouse. “With the automated daily journal provided by IntApp Time Builder, our fee earners are finding significant additional billable time with no additional work or effort, and our finance department is able to provide clients with more detailed accounting of lawyer activity.”
Time Builder is software that enables law firms to increase revenue by capturing billable time that is missed or under-billed. It does this by providing lawyers with an accurate, consolidated journal of client/matter-related activity, generated by automatically monitoring the key applications they use throughout the day. Tracked systems include document creation, email, calendar, phone, and mobile devices.
Lawyer activity journals are cross-referenced against client matter information and provided in a “daily timesheet” format available as an automated email or paper printout. Journals are also accessible by lawyers, or their secretaries, through a web-based interface which allows activities to be grouped, detailed and submitted to common time entry applications, including those provided by vendors such as Thomson Elite, ADERANT, Advanced Productivity Software, PensEra Knowledge Technologies and Sage Software.
This approach allows lawyers to more easily record and enter time, often finding lost or overlooked work. Additionally, by simplifying time tracking, Time Builder increases lawyer satisfaction while accelerating internal pre-bill review and external client collections.
“We were fortunate to collaborate with such a driven and well-organised IT team to implement Time Builder at Field Fish Waterhouse and are quite pleased to see the industry taking notice of their success with the product,” said Jon Roscow, General Manager EMEA, IntApp. “The honours bestowed on Field Fisher Waterhouse highlight the benefits available to law firms who invest in Time Builder to increase lawyer satisfaction, improve firm financial performance and deliver greater visibility to clients.”
IntApp provides software products and services that enable law firms to increase revenue, ensure client confidentiality, manage risk and maximise lawyer productivity. With over 150 customers and a vibrant partner community, IntApp has been embraced and endorsed as an industry standard. For more information about IntApp, visit: http://www.intapp.com.
