Mobile devices have changed the world and they are changing the way we work and communicate. Mobility begins the moment that we walk away from our desktop or laptop, not just when we are outside of the office.
Our productivity, often driven by the apps that we choose, is enhanced and enabled to take on new life with our ever-expanding access to technology.
Mobile time entry is part of this shift.
Increasingly, firms are realizing the benefits of contemporaneous timekeeping practices and embracing mobile time entry. As you begin to dive into the benefits that mobile time entry can offer, here are three things that you need to know to get started:
- The argument for the need for time capture has evolved. “Back in the day…” (circa 2005), there was a strong and compelling argument for time capture solutions. After all, there was no feasible way to practice contemporaneous time entry “on the go” at that time. Time capture was the best possible solution for tracking time electronically as attorneys worked in and out of the office. But, times have changed. Now we have time entry solutions that make contemporaneous time entry not only feasible, but desirable.
- It works the way that attorneys work. (Finally!) Mobile time entry works as an extension of how you do - on the go. You can now enter your time wherever, whenever. This allows you to record your billable time in real-time without the hassle of reconstructive time entry.
- Excellence in time entry is now possible. Attorneys can be compliant with time entry policies without the bother of completing time entry tasks. What’s best for the firm is now in line with what is best, practical and convenient for attorneys.
