Fortunately, Porter had a solution for billing and timekeeping needs that she knew would work.
“I started using TimeSolv in February 2011 at my previous firm and I loved it and thought it would be good fit for Key Harrington Barnes.”
She knew as a cloudbased program TimeSolv was accessible from any device, at any time, whether online or offline, with the mobile app and TimeSync desktop application.
“You don’t need a server, you don’t need multiple licenses. It’s very user-friendly and the interface is wonderful.”
However, there was still the question about all the historical data they’d accumulated over 13 years and could it be accessible and easily moved to a new system?
“It was a major concern of the partners,” states Porter. “We scheduled a conference call with TimeSolv to address our fears.”
Once they learned that TimeSolv can auto-migrate all the TimeSlips data, the decision was easy.
“With TimeSolv, it took about two days to do edits and get bills out for our attorneys instead of the five or six days with Timeslips.”
For Attorneys who use legacy software
Trust accounting with TimeSolv
Lawyers are made to be accountable for every dollar of their clients funds held in trust accounts. TimeSolv helps you easily manage this money in separate ledgers under each specific matter. This helps ensure that client money does not get mixed up with the firm’s assets.
TimeSolv’s Trust Request feature means you can even share requests online for funds, allowing your clients to make deposits into their trust accounts immediately using credit cards. This process speeds up your cash flow significantly.
The Conversion Process
When things get hectic, simple matters
For many firms, the whole process of converting from one billing and timekeeping solution to another is daunting. Key Harrington Barnes was no different. But TimeSolv works closely with firms every step of the way.
“TimeSolv made it easy to convert because we developed a plan,” said Porter. “They helped determine when the best time was for us to stop using Timeslips, when the best time would be to upload data, the best time to review the data and the best time to go live. So there was a process when it came to the conversion that I felt was very efficient and very thorough on TimeSolv’s behalf.”
“I would recommend TimeSolv because of the customer service and the level of support. I don’t think that you will get this level of experience with any other program. They’re accessible via phone, chat, email. They’re very knowledgeable about the program.
The developers have done a really great job and they listen to suggestions and feedback. They’re always willing to make improvements to the program and I’ve can honestly say over the last six years the program just gets better and better.
