More and more law firms are embracing project management techniques, and we want to help them run more efficient and error-free firms.
BOCA RATON, Fla. (PRWEB) March 08, 2018
The first cloud-based legal practice management software, Rocket Matter, today announces a powerful new workflow management platform for law firms. Simply called Rocket Project Management, the new capabilities integrate seamlessly into Rocket Matter’s case management platform and help attorneys take a methodical and automated approach to managing their matters.
Designed with the same simplicity that Rocket Matter pioneered among legal software providers, Rocket Project Management enables attorneys to easily create transitions between different phases of a case. Each phase can contain its own calendar calculations, custom data, and tasks, allowing legal professionals to set up automated systems so that they never miss deadlines. When a matter is switched from one phase to another, all of this predefined data automatically appears in Rocket Matter.
“More and more law firms are embracing project management techniques, and we want to help them run more efficient and error-free firms,” says Larry Port, CEO of Rocket Matter. “The more law firms can view their firms as systems with repeatable processes, the better off they will be. Firms will become more profitable, have more insight into their operations, provide better service to clients, and more accurately price alternative fee arrangements.”
Project management and workflows are relatively new management techniques for law firms, and Rocket Matter, along with a core group of customers, decided to include such functionality in its dedicated legal practice management system. Many of the business ideas and concepts behind workflow management and systems thinking are explored in Port’s new book, The Lean Law Firm, co-authored with attorney Dave Maxfield and published by the American Bar Association.
Along with the workflows themselves comes sophisticated reporting about the status of the matters going through phases. For example, legal professionals can easily tell how many matters are in each phase, which are on schedule, and which are overdue. Rocket Project Management integrates with Rocket Matter’s Communicator, the software’s internal messaging tool, alerting lawyers on their mobile devices when the status of a case has changed.
