How real-time compliance can help law firms get less rejections and faster payments

The sooner you know that there is a problem, the better. Fix it. Move on.

However, in the typical law firm, identifying the “bad news” early enough to address the problem is a struggle. Specifically, I’m referring to the disconnect between what attorneys are doing when they record their time and what clients receive in an invoice.

The ultimate result of this disconnect is unhappy clients (and of course, unhappy attorneys due to late or missing payments from clients).

Do It Now: Five Benefits of Contemporaneous Time Entry

Posted by Gaby Isturiz on Feb 13, 2014 2:19:00 PM

On an intuitive level, “do it now,” as opposed “save it for later” makes sense. After all, why put off an important task when you could take care of it right now and breathe a little bit easier knowing that it is complete?

Easier said than done. For most of us, this isn’t reality. In fact, while only 20% of the population are considered clinical procrastinators, everyone procrastinates some of the time.
