A Legal Counsel Needs a Modest Program

Kelly Devlin asks: I am looking for software to help a chief legal counsel's office manage bills it receives from outside counsel, and can track and produce reports. We've already looked at something called "Chief Legal Officer," but it was much more than we needed and beyond our budget. We also looked at "Professional Fee Manager" two years ago, but it didn't have the capabilities we needed. We are going to look at that product again. Any alternatives?
