The attorneys in our firm are on the go and they practice from everywhere. So, as part of the firm’s mobile strategy it was key to provide them with an efficient way of entering time on their mobile devices.

Bellefield Systems, LLC, the leader in mobile time entry for firms of all sizes, announced today that Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP has chosen iTimeKeep as its firm-wide mobile time entry solution.

Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick is a full-service business law firm with more than 230 lawyers. In addition to having their main office in Toledo, Ohio, they also have offices in Charlotte, Columbus, Sarasota, and Tampa.

Staying ahead of the curve means being an innovative firm, and as such, Shumaker was looking for a time entry solution to allow their attorneys to record time from anywhere. Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick was very specific about their goals and what they were looking for: find a solution that was easy to use, allow attorneys to capture more time while on the go, and one that would effortlessly be adopted by the firm’s attorneys. Mobile Time Entry was fundamental to the firm’s mobile strategy; therefore, Bellefield offered Shumaker a “trial run” in the form of a 60 day pilot.

During the 60 day pilot, Shumaker found that the firm captured 18% of the billable time during off business hours, holidays and weekends. The firm also realized the benefits of “contemporaneous time entry” evidenced by a time-velocity of 1 day (time-velocity is defined as the time elapsed between the date of the work performed and when it was actually recorded). The results and the feedback from the attorneys were so positive that Shumaker committed to a site license so that all timekeepers would have access to iTimeKeep’s mobile time entry solution.

“The attorneys in our firm are on the go and they practice from everywhere. So, as part of the firm’s mobile strategy it was key to provide them with an efficient way of entering time on their mobile devices,” says Thomas Dangelo, Chief Information Officer. “We went with a 60 day pilot of iTimeKeep, and during this period we were very impressed with not only the implementation of iTimeKeep, but also how simple the product was to roll-out to the attorneys and its seamless integration with our billing system. We also received excellent feedback from the attorneys in our firm stating that iTimeKeep was easy to use and the convenience of mobile time entry has a positive impact on their daily workflow,” continued Thomas Dangelo.

“We are excited to welcome Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick to the Bellefield family. Their excitement and enthusiasm of going from a pilot to a firm-wide adoption underscores our commitment to providing law firms with the best mobile and desktop time entry solutions available in legal,” added Gaby Isturiz, Principal of Bellefield Systems.

After launching in 2012, iTimeKeep quickly became the most-widely used mobile time entry solution for attorneys. Bellefield is relentlessly committed to maintaining iTimeKeep’s simplicity, allowing attorneys to work the way they want to work: anytime, anywhere and any way. Law is a mobile profession. Therefore, Bellefield strives to create solutions that will empower attorneys to productively conduct business everywhere. iTimeKeep offers integration with most major time & billing systems.
