We have been looking at several different billing and timekeeping programs. Why should we consider CLAS?
Which size of law office should consider CLAS?
How difficult will it be to convert my data if I upgrade from one version of CLAS to another, for example, from DOS to Windows CLAS?
Will we have to reenter all of our billing data if we decide to purchase CLAS?
Can the software modules be purchased separately? Do I have to buy them all?
I often work from my home office. Will I be able to use CLAS to track time and access client information?
What are the system requirements?
CLAS currently supports several electronic billing formats. If you require a format not listed below, contact us.
This standard electronic billing format is used by many insurance companies.
The Scottsdale Format
Scottsdale requires that, in addition to hard copies of the billing statements and required photocopies of expense documentation, billing data be submitted on computer disk or via e-mail directly to its legal auditor, Stuart, Maue, Mitchell & James, Ltd. ("SMMJ").
CLAS Time & Billing has an add-on that is capable of producing the "ASCII FILE FORMAT REQUIRED".
The Hartford Initiative Format
In late 1995, The Hartford took the first steps toward improving and streamlining its litigation management processes through the introduction of a task-based billing initiative. The intent was to obtain invoice data in a format that could be analyzed and compared with other firms around the country in order to determine the factors that cause cases with similar fact patterns to settle at different amounts. Software was developed to assist outside counsel law firms in the collection of this data by staff now working at TyMetrix, Inc., a Hartford, CT-based consulting firm. Currently, one hundred eighty firms are providing invoice data in this format.
The CLAS Time & Billing module is capable of preparing these export files as easily as it prints a paper copy.
