Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) February 27, 2012
IntApp, Inc., the leading provider of time capture software for law firms, today announced that Stites & Harbison PLLC, a preeminent law firm based in strategic Southeastern locations and sought by business and institutional clients nationwide for sophisticated transactions, difficult litigation and complex regulatory matters, has achieved significant lawyer adoption of IntApp Time Builder, which has greatly enhanced time recording practices.
“IntApp Time Builder simplifies and streamlines our lawyers’ efforts to record time on the same day that work is performed by providing them with a roll-up of their billable activity that’s automatically grouped and assigned accurate client matter codes,” said Tab Barton, IT Director, Stites & Harbison PLLC. “We’re very pleased with the quality and capability of the software, which has proven to be quite popular. Today two-thirds of our timekeepers use Time Builder, frequently finding several hours of missed or under-billed activity each month, which directly impacts firm profitability and financial performance.”
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.
“The success of Stites & Harbison highlights the benefits firms can achieve by enhancing lawyer time recording,” said Eldean Ward, head of IntApp’s Revenue Practice Group. “We’re pleased to showcase their existing accomplishments and look forward to supporting their ongoing efforts.”
IntApp provides software products and services that enable law firms to achieve competitive advantage by exceeding client compliance requirements, increasing revenue, and reducing operational costs.
