To tell a law firm that our software can double your revenue sounds like an outlandish marketing claim. So when we started to look at the data and realised that it is not only possible, but it has already happened for many Smokeball clients, we felt uncomfortable shouting it from the rooftops, because it sounds too good to be true. Then there’s the other uncomfortable factor – the feeling that we’re indicating that you’ll be charging your clients double. Which, fortunately, is not true.
We’re hearing a lot about transparency these days. It is a kind of elixir of modern management, widely discussed as a way to build value with every constituency an enterprise may have, including shareholders, communities, regulators, employees, suppliers and customers.
Not only does Smokeball help law firms get their work done faster with industry leading productivity tools, it also makes sure fee earners are paid what they’re worth.
Automatic Time Tracking and Matter Profitability Tracking: When something that sounds too good to be true is real!
For the past three years, the team at Smokeball has been working on AutoTime. AutoTime is a total revelation for small law firms whether working on time billed or fixed fee (or as is common, a combination of both) as it performs two key functions.
We are proud to introduce our Smokeball Billing expert – Priscilla Lawrence!
Priscilla brings a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experience to her role. Before Smokeball Priscilla was both a bookkeeper and legal office manager. She has over 38 years’ experience working in both small and large law firms.
These are Priscilla's top 5 reasons why Smokeball Billing is brilliant:
Capturing and billing more time can take your businesses revenue from mediocre to outstanding. When it comes to tracking time, so many lawyers and conveyancers leave money on the table because they fail to record all the hours they’ve worked. Fifteen minutes here or thirty minutes there can add up to hundreds of hours over the course of a year (and thousands of dollars). Fortunately, there are strategies you can use to make sure that your business is capturing and billing more time.
