Alumni Upgrades PCLaw Software

Alumni Computer Group, based in Buffalo, N.Y., has announced the release of the latest editions of its PCLaw and PCLawPro software packages.

The upgrade, version 5, adds more than 100 new features to the company's legal time billing and accounting programs, reports Alumni.

Billing has been enhanced with the addition of a new "Split Billing" function, that allows firms to split bills between multiple parties. The upgrade also supports more electronic billing formats for third-party billing audit companies.

Other improvements include the ability to e-mail bills; have bills print a retainer replenishment request when a client's retainer balance drops below a specified amount; and print courtesy discounts. The upgrade also offers a bank reconciliation module, which can read downloaded electronic bank statements, and can automatically match cleared items.

PCLaw 5.0 also simplifies data entry and navigation, and includes new filters and advanced security settings.

The new edition also reflects a name change: PCLaw 5.0 is the new name for the former PCLawJr product.
