Increase your billings with Smokeball

Billl more without your clients paying more.

How do we do this?

AutoTime

​Everything you and your staff do within Smokeball, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Outlook is timed, tracked, and associated with the appropriate matter automatically. No need to start and stop multiple timers or try to keep up with your busy day minute-by-minute on paper.

AutoTime tracks all the time you work on each matter, starting and pausing timers, detecting when your mouse has gone idle, for all staff on all matters. This includes all the time spent in Microsoft Word documents, drafting and reading emails in Microsoft Outlook, creating file notes, and attending meetings and court. AutoTime then creates your time entries for you, complete with detailed descriptions, on your time billed work. You will have the ability to edit the time on these entries and make them non-billable if necessary.

Management Reporting

​Automatic time tracking gives us the ability to show your firm the profitability of your fee earners, your practice areas, and your individual clients and matters, no matter whether the work is time billed or fixed fee. This will give you unique insight into the health of your business to allow you to optimise profitability across your practice.

AutoTime for fixed fee work

​Fixed-fee conveyancers or law firms can now see where time is being spent and the true cost of performing the work for each client. Don’t overwork your staff on matters that simply are not paying off.

​Counsel your fixed-fee clients and manage their expectations based on real data from Firm Insights. Also, learn from past fixed-fee data to smartly staff similar matters moving forward. Whether it's staffing adjustments or actual adjustments to your fixed fees, let Firm Insights help navigate this difficult territory.
