Easy to Use

Easily Prevent Billing Errors

Partners should not have to spend hours reviewing “pre-bills" for final invoicing.  Now they don't have to.

Simple color codes immediately flag entries that are “problematic", based upon your settings.

The color codes drastically reduce the time needed to review and approve entries for final invoicing.

The color codes also notify your timekeepers of errors in real time.  This allows billing errors to to fixed immediately and at their source, further reducing review time.

Automatically Train Your Users How to Bill

Partners should not have to train people how to bill. Now they don’t have to.

In addition to the real-time color code flagging, our app also provides suggested entry descriptions based on your own billing records.

These suggested descriptions appear as soon as your user starts typing the entry description.   Your user can easily pick one of your previously approved entries that matches the task at hand.

This helps further reduce billing errors, and speed up billing.  It also makes your bills look cleaner and more uniform.

Automatically Apply Billing Codes to All Entries

Our app automatically applies billing codes to each entry.

No more tedious and time-consuming hassle!

The billing codes are automatically applied whenever new entries are imported from your billing system, and whenever entries are made in our app.

You can easily select from different standard UTBMS code sets.  You can also easily add custom codes.

No Complicated or Time-Consuming Set Up

Set up takes less than 5 minutes! 

Our app comes with a built-in data set that is used for the various automation and color coding features.  This allows you to get started immediately.

For custom results, you can easily add your own data set in just minutes.  

You can choose to use only our data, only your data, or both, with just a few clicks.

In addition, your approved entries are automatically added to your own data set.  This makes our app smarter and better the more you use it!

Works With Almost Any Billing System

Our app provides many different ways to easily import and export entries to and from your existing billing system.

This makes it fast and simple to process your entries in our app.  After processing in our app, it is also fast and simple to export your approved entries back to your billing system for invoicing.

Alternatively, your users can each have their own timekeeper account.  Each timekeeper can quickly export their own cleaned up entries to your billing system at any time.

In addition, with our “integration bars" feature, you can open our app in one browser tab, and your existing billing system in another.  This allows you to easily toggle back and forth between the two apps, and use both apps at the same time.

You can also create LEDES 1998B and 1998BI invoices directly from our app.  This makes billing even faster!

Important Features

Computer-Assisted Law Firm Billing

PREDICTIVE BILLING: 

Our app predicts what your time entry will be as you type it!

ASSISTED TIME ENTRY:

Our app works in real time, notifying your attorneys and paralegals along the way when the amount of time they allocate to a specific task or a particular matter is unusually high or mistakenly low. This means write-downs and write-offs get eliminated along the way and in real time.

In addition, the Assisted Time Entry feature notifies your timekeepers when their entries violate your clients' billing guidelines and rules.  You can easily configure the settings for specific clients or specific matters.  This means non-compliant entries also get corrected along the way and in real time.

Moreover, the Assisted Time Entry feature helps your attorneys and paralegals standardize their time entries to follow specific formats, diction, and conventions, before any partner has to make revisions.

ASSISTED BILLING REVIEW: 

Our Assisted Billing Review feature provides clear color codes for particular time or expense entries that are unusually high or mistakenly low.  Assisted Billing Review also tells you when the total amount of time accumulated in a particular matter is becoming unusual.

This feature also provides clear alerts regarding any remaining issues as to your clients' billing rules.  This ensures compliance, and reduces manual review time to almost zero.

In addition, Assisted Billing Review helps you standardize your bills, by letting you know when a particular text description in a time entry is unusual.  It makes your bills more professional!

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) AND MACHINE LEARNING:

BillerAssist EasyCodes Edition learns from your changes. This means our app becomes more and more accurate and helpful as you use it.

Automated LEDES Coding

ACCURATE: Our patent-pending software provides accurate codes for all UTBMS tasks and expenses.

BillerAssist EasyCodes Edition uses your own billing data to provide accurate codes for all UTBMS tasks and expenses — just the way you like them!

If your law firm is new to UTBMS coding, don't worry — you can simply use our data to complete the automation!

Before you send any legal bills to your clients using your own law firm billing software, BillerAssist EasyCodes Edition also allows you to easily and quickly review all the automatically applied UTBMS codes and make any changes you want. 

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: Our app learns from your prior edits and corrected UTBMS coded entries. It also becomes more and more accurate as you use it thanks to advanced AI technology.
