Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2011
IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of time capture software for law firms, today announced that Greenebaum Doll & McDonald PLLC, a forward-thinking business law firm with 125 lawyers in Kentucky and Ohio, has deployed IntApp Time Builder to improve time recording practices.
"We observed that our lawyers were waiting an average of 5 days to submit time entries for services rendered, which meant short-duration activities were often overlooked," said James Fisher, Chief Operating Officer, Greenebaum Doll & McDonald PLLC. "IntApp Time Builder automatically captures that billable time so nothing slips through the cracks. And because Time Builder puts comprehensive information right at each lawyer's fingertips, they spend less time creating time entries and more time working on client matters."
IntApp Time Builder is a software product 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 report of their client and 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.
Built to leverage IntApp's proprietary IC3 technology, an intelligent cross-referencing, categorization and classification engine, Time Builder integrates information from a variety of firm business applications to automatically and accurately match lawyer activity with associated clients and matters. Activity reports are provided to lawyers in a timesheet format that also includes the exact duration of each task.
These intelligent information management capabilities set Time Builder apart from other time capture software tools, which rely on users to manually "train" software to assign specific activities with specific matters and to record task durations themselves.
To allow lawyers to effectively access and use their activity report in whichever way best aligns with their work patterns and preferences, Time Builder makes this information available in several ways including:
A web-based interface, which offers an optional "secretary mode" to allow third-party time recording assistance
On mobile devices including Apple iPads and iPhones
Directly through Microsoft Outlook
An automated email
A paper printout
The web and Outlook interfaces allow lawyers to group, detail and submit activities directly to financial and time entry software tools including Elite Enterprise, Elite 3E, Aderant / CMS, DTE Axiom and Tikit Carpe Diem.
Using Time Builder allows lawyers to more easily record and enter their 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 processes.
"Adopting IntApp Time Builder is part of a long standing firm strategy to use technology to better serve our clients worldwide," added Fisher. "With its sophisticated intelligent data matching and management capabilities, Time Builder enables us to provide clients with more timely bills offering enhanced narrative detail."
"Many firms are missing out on potential revenue for the simple reason that some portion of billable activities are forgotten in the time between when the activity was performed and when it was entered into the time entry system," said Eldean Ward, head of IntApp's Revenue Practice Group. "We are excited to support Greenebaum's initiative to improve their time recording practices and boost firm revenue."
