TimesManager™ provides multiple ways to track your time. Start a time slip and TimesManager™ will begin the timer. When your activity is complete, stop the timer and the billing entry will be accurate and complete. Did you forget to track your time? No worries. Just create a time slip and enter the time for the activity. All of this can be done with your computer, smart phone or tablet.
What is LEDES Billing?
The electronic billing format provides a standard data format for electronically transmitted invoices, typically from a law firm to a corporate client.
Why is there two non LEDES activities for logging calls?
There are two non LEDES activities available for logging phone calls. Some users like to know if they called or were called. We realize this is a break from your normal billing programs, as they do not provide due diligence and CRM options. Since TimesManager™ includes a complete document depository, event calendaring, and contact information, we realized that there may be reasons to create your own codes to help you define, from a management aspect, what’s going on in your business. There are substantial flexibilities that should be explored in addition to the base time and billing usage that TimesManager™ offers.
