With the launch of LexisNexis Firm Manager 2.0, law firms now have a powerful practice management tool with options for firms of different sizes. Firm Manager 2.0 offers two packages: Starter and Essentials, because solosmall firms and larger firms have distinct goals.
Firm Manager’s Starter package is designed for solosmall firms and has the key features that ensure that smaller firms thrive. Starter includes case management tools such as managing contacts, notes, tasks, and events. Starter also allows attorneys to sync their Google or Microsoft calendars to ensure you never miss a meeting. Lawyers can store documents securely and centrally because Firm Manager Starter has unlimited document storage. Starter’s billing and expense tracking tools help ensure that attorneys get paid faster, which is critical in a small firm. Finally, Starter also provides trackable trust accounting to guard against issues like fund commingling. In short, Starter is ideal for those attorneys that need solid basic practice management or those that are just starting their careers.
The Essentials package has all the robust tools of the Starter package and adds an impressive range of integrations and customization. Attorneys can use QuickBooks and QuickBooks for their accounting, as those programs can automatically sync with Firm Manager Essentials. Essentials users can also take advantage of robust reporting tools to track productivity, billing trends, accounts receivables, and trust history reporting. Essentials users also get access to customizable templates for checklists and client intake. It also offers control over data access thanks to role-based permissions, a necessity in larger firms. The Essentials package is the tool that growing firms need to help them spend less time on their practice management and more time on developing their practice.
