Monthly reports are valuable tools in building a successful law practice. They provide you with detailed information about your firm from a variety of financial and management perspectives. Used properly, monthly reports can help you identify what is working within your business and what needs improvement. As a business minded individual, you likely see the value in this strategy, but you may be at a loss regarding the best method of completion. With a comprehensive law firm billing software, like TimeSolv, the task becomes easy to complete.
Firm performance reports provide you with a detailed listing of hours worked, time billed, payments and expenses. With a single report, you can view the total number of active claims, including billable and non-billable items. The report also lists the total hours worked in comparison to the total hours billed. A view of account payments and credits is also included, along with outstanding bills, sorted by the number of late days.
The time budget report offers a view of time spent on each matter. The TimeSolv Reporting System sorts information by client name and includes columns for budgeted work hours, billed work hours, unbilled work hours. It also calculates the remaining balance of budgeted hours.
