Smokeball is practice management software built exclusively for solosmall firms, but it comes with the sort of features you expect to find in software that is custom built for much bigger firms, like document automation and extensive reports for tracking productivity.
Smokeball is Windows-based case management software that tightly integrates with the tools a law firm is most reliant upon: Microsoft Word and Microsoft Outlook. (It works with Windows 7, 8, and 10, and Microsoft Office 2007 and onwards.) If you find you are spending more time tracking down who was supposed to do what or where a particular document should be, Smokeball can help.
Smokeball offers the things you have come to expect from practice management software, such as contact management and streamlining the opening of matters. It also offers complete document automation, so you can create templates for each commonly used document or court form. Smokeball automates tasks that are both tedious and error-prone, like re-entering client information or calculating fees.
Smokeball creates a complete plain-text searchable database for all your tasks, documents, emails, and matters. Thanks to this, you can easily track staff productivity, see what types of client matters offer the best return on investment, and, perhaps most importantly, stop wasting time looking for things in digital and physical files.
How to Get It
Smokeball costs $69 per month per person, plus a one-time onboarding fee. Onboarding includes installation and setup of Smokeball and two training sessions. Smokeball will also set up your letterhead and pre-load up to 15 forms or letters into your Smokeball library.
