PerfectLaw’s All-In-One Cloud versus the Hybrid Cloud

In recent years, the legal industry has experienced a quantum leap in legal technology options and legal software solutions. Many of the solutions have begun the move to the cloud from what was once only local server-based environments. Although a lot of marketing buzz has been created around the recently developed Hybrid Cloud, there are still numerous reasons why PerfectLaw’s All-In-One cloud model rises about the rest. These two models offer different solutions for different size firms running different products.

The Hybrid Cloud, although offering a diverse set of options, is often partitioned or broken apart across several different databases, thus requiring add-ons or plug-ins to integrate with third party software . This is not ideal.

In the All-In-One cloud, everything lives in harmony alongside your All-In-One database. This increases security, usability, maintenance, workflow, along a great deal of other perks.

To get a fuller picture, PerfectLaw has developed a 5-part series of short videos that juxtapose the All-In-One Cloud with the Hybrid cloud. The topics include a general overview, maintenance from the IT perspective, workflow, handling external documents, and security.

Avoid Delays in Your Billing Process with an Effective Distributed Billing Tool

It can be a hurdle when the Back Office has to wait for attorneys to review the pre-bill reports, searching for any errors in the billing. And once the corrections have been reported, the Back Office then has to retrieve the reported changes from the attorney and update the pending bills in the Time and Billing module. This is an unnecessary strain on the Back Office and needlessly duplicates work.

With PerfectLaw’s Distributed Billing module, pre-bill reports are profiled directly to the billing attorney’s matters where the pending bills may be reviewed and edited by the attorney’s themselves, allowing the Back Office to carry on with their other duties.

To see all of the various ways in which the Distributed Billing Module can be utilized, please watch this video.

If you think your firm would be interested in Distributed Billing, please contact our Sales Department to get started.

Making Attorney Expense Reimbursements Easy

And since much of the reviewing is performed prior to posting, the service vastly reduces administrative hours while composing an accurate audit trail for the Back Office.

One Automated Email with All of the Client’s Bills

envelope icon representing emailsStarting with Build 106, if a Time & Billing or Account Manager user has multiple bills to be emailed to a single client (a single email address), the software will now create one single email containing all of the bills. This process replaces the old method of having an email created for each individual bill.
