Thursday 4th June, 14:00 BST – There are many negative assumptions about legal e-billing software but there are many benefits for law firms that embrace it. Despite the challenges with using more than 30 different e-billing systems for over 200 “fully e-billed” clients, Adam Knight, Global Revenue Advisor at Linklaters LLP sees more pros than cons.
Although nowhere near as critical as air safety, several law firms have established the principle of running “pre-flight checks” on their e-Bills before submitting them to a legal spend management or e-Billing system such as BusyLamp. This is done to correct any obvious errors on the e-Bill and therefore reduce the % of invoices that get rejected in the first stage of the validation process. This leads to invoices being accepted and paid by the client faster. Over time, common errors can be identified and processes at the firm made more accurate and efficient.
