Time and Billing
Alumni Adds ABA Task-Based Billing
ALUMNI Computer Group Inc., of Buffalo, N.Y., has announced the release of upgraded editions of its two time-and-billing software programs, PCLawPro and PCLawJr.
The newly revised editions add task-based billing, including new American Bar Association/Price Waterhouse codes, says Alumni.
PCLawPro is designed for firms with 10 to 100 timekeepers; PCLawJr. is targeted to operations with less than 10 timekeepers, Alumni advises.
Reporting features have been enhanced on both versions, says Alumni, and PCLawPro contains a number of new reports geared specifically for big firms.
Both editions now include 10 user-definable fields, allowing lawyers to customize the client files to fit their practice area and to enter information such as policy numbers, expiration dates and more, says the company.
PCLawJr 4.0 also has added a conversion program to allow easy transfer of information from other time-and-billing programs, says Alumni. Additionally, the toolbar has been upgraded, to make it easier to perform daily tasks, the company notes.
Both programs are 32-bit, Year 2000-compliant and compatible with Windows 95/98/NT, the company says.
