Time & Billing Software
Posted by SippyCup on 1/9 at 3:24 pm
Looking to upgrade from our current time & billing software and was wondering what the accountants, attorneys, etc of the MT use.

My company uses BigTime Software. I can't answer what it costs. I know it is easy to use though to track billing of several clients.

For time I use Timeslips. Intergrates right into outlook and can store multiple clients. It is also completly customizable.

A lot of people have recommended timeslips but it has a lot that we dont necessarliy need. I have to keep it simple for some of my staff.

Does Big Time have the option to start/stop a running clock on clients?

I would imagine someone with very basic programming knowledge could create a stripped down time program with or without a database backend. I honestly need to do this for myself. As I work at a small firm I've just gotten use to writing down my time and having a bill typed up from it. I know that is extremely inefficient but I don't do much billable stuff. In fact, I probably only bill around 100 hours a year, but I keep my time on certain types of files just in case.

Our office uses PCLaw... and it sucks. That's one I'd stay away from. You have to purchase a license for each person and to my knowledge there's no multi license package of discount. Also its slow and lags and is somehow tied to Internet Explorer, which it has a particular disliking for IE8.

TIMEnX and it is fine except when it crashes and you have to redo the submission entirely.

I would look to see what the associations of your profession use/recommend. What works for an acct may not work for a lawyer as some are geared not just to billing but to practice management as well.

Unfortunately my knowledge of BigTime is minimal. Project managers set up buckets on the spreadsheet and I simply put my time in. I know our company is trying to eventually move from it to our own billing software but that project has been pushed back.

My accounting firm uses Prosystem fx Practice Management. We've had other systems before this one and definitely like this one the best.

Pro system is definitely the best but probably pricey.
