Recently I was contacted by the Communications Director at Lexis Nexis because he wanted to clarify and answer some lingering questions that I had when I posted my blog post “For Law Practice Management (bonus post): Time Matters.”
I decided to post the email response because I wanted everyone to get an accurate view of Lexis Nexis’ program for Law Practice Management. Time Matters was brought to my attention by a member who was curious about it and how it works, so I want to be sure that the correct information is going around.
Here is what he had to say:
Just seeing your post now on Time Matters: For Law Practice Management (bonus post): Time Matters – and wanted to respond.
Time Matters is a premised based and feature-rich program for LFPM. It probably isn’t a good comparison to other cloud tools. We do have a cloud-based program as well called Firm Manager.
From your post, it looks like you have some questions. I’d be happy to either answer them, or if I can’t, try to link you up with a product manager that can. In the meantime, here’s a summary of our tools for law firm practice management:
· Firm Manager – all-in-one practice management solution designed for solos and duos. Additional links:
o Most recent software enhancement. (Updates come out about every 6-8 weeks).
· PCLaw – matter, billing and accounting software; it’s a fit for solos who prefer a premise solution, handles a range of small law firms, say 5-10 attorneys. Additional links:
o Most recent software announcement for version 14; version 15 is due out this fall.
· Time Matters – very robust features for case and document management software for mid-law. Billing Matters is sold as an add-on, though it also integrates with PCLaw and Juris. Additional links:
o Version 14 completely modernized the underlying technology; version 15 is due out this fall.
· Juris – robust financial management and billing software for mid- to larger law firms.
o Version 2.7 also modernized the underlying technology and version 2.8 is due out this fall.
Well, I hope that answers any questions that anyone had. The red text should be links that will take you to the actual page he is referring to. If anyone has any more questions, post them in the comments.
Thanks, Frank, for writing in!
Until Next Time,
