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 approved entries.

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.

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 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.

Important Features

Smarter 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 legal 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 becomes unusually high or mistakenly low.

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!

MACHINE LEARNING:

BillerAssist learns from your changes. This means our legal billing software becomes more accurate and more helpful as you use it.

Compatible

BillerAssist works with many legal billing software & law practice management systems, like Clio.

BillerAssist also works with many self-hosted or locally installed systems, like TimeSlips software.

We also offer integration services. If you use a proprietary or other non-standard billing system, please contact us at (800) 427-5510 or info@EffortlessLegal.com, and ask for BillerAssist integration.

This allows you to easily and quickly get your Local Counsel's time entries and expenses entered into your legal billing system.

And all of their time and expense entries will be standardized, just like yours!

Attorneys must exercise “billing judgment," and “make a good-faith effort" to exclude charges and expenses “that are excessive, redundant, or otherwise unnecessary."
