Time & Billing
Alumni Computer Group has announced the release of ePCLaw, its new Web-based time-and-expense tracking system that can also generate PCLaw reports.
Unlike many Web-based billing systems, ePCLaw's design allows it to use the PCLaw data that is stored securely at the law firm, instead of utilizing an Internet storage system.
With ePCLaw, legal professionals can track time and expenses and generate reports from any computer with Internet access, 7/24, it says.
The software expedites firm billing by allowing users to process entries into PCLaw quickly, and from remote venues, eliminating the need to come to the office to re-enter data.
With ePCLaw's security settings, firms can restrict access to specific clients and accounting reports, the Buffalo, N.Y. company explains.

PeerPoint Technologies Inc. has upgrades its Professional Fee Manager software. The new version adds an "approval hierarchy" feature that moves invoices from desktop to desktop as they are approved, it says. The capability, based on dollar approval limit authorities, automatically routes the invoice to the next required level, says the Houston company.
Another new feature is the ability to identify rules as "critical," thus resulting in the ejection of an invoice if a critical rule is violated. When rejected, the law firm is notified and receives a copy of the Exception Report, citing rule violations.
