Conclusion

'It does not make sense for a busy firm to use a three-in-one system instead of a computerised package', he says. 'All solicitors using accounts software will find that they make more money. They can get on with their work, productivity is higher and there is less time-wasting. 'Everything you have on a PC should cut labour', he says. 'So if you have an accounts package, it should be linked to your case-management system. If you set up a case and issue an interim bill, this information should be sent automatically to the accounts system. Likewise, the accounts system should be linked to a time-recording module'. Gilmartin maintains that the management information available from a PC package can help firms to identify the areas where they are making money. 'When setting up the system, you can define various areas such as probate, litigation and conveyancing', he says. 'It is then possible to calculate outgoings, incomings and the amount of time spent on each case if the system has time recording. Firms can work out each area's profitability'. Many computerised accounts packages now include time-recording modules which keep track of the exact amount of time spent working on particular cases. 'Time recording is becoming more important', says Aidan O'Neill, sales and marketing manager of Ivutec, which developed the Italax package. 'Features like this allow solicitors to keep better track of their time and expenses. One British case-management software firm says solicitors can add 12.5% to their gross billings by tracking all their expenses'. 2 ...read more.
