Reporting

Businesses need reports to help assess key business performance indicators like profit and accounts receivable. Some products have more robust reporting features than others.

Foreign Currencies

Check Printing

Contact Management

Store contacts for invoicing or billing purposes.

There's a reason Quickbooks is the most used accounting software. It's the best.

Additional Details about QuickBooks

Pricing

A plan for just about everyone. QuickBooks provides a wide range of accounting features that work for solo lawyers or medium-sized firms, alike. In order to do this, Intuit offers multiple pricing plans. Not all plans include the above features.

Security

Client information security is a real concern for lawyers. QuickBooks, therefore, uses SSL (secure-socket layer) to ensure your data is encrypted in transit. Credit card and social security numbers are converted to tokens or encrypted. QuickBooks secures its data centers with 24/7 personnel and video surveillance and has backup generators to keep data available during power outages.

Quickbooks for the Modern Lawyer

Online Advanced

Although Quickbooks, in general, is not specifically built with lawyers in mind, they recently released their Advanced product. This customized product addresses many of the small to medium-sized law firm’s pain points. For example, Advanced has complex billing terms, billable hours, and time-keeping abilities. Additionally, it has strong Key Performance Indicator (KPI) reporting—which is something we think every law firm needs.

Integrations

Quickbooks has also made its product more enticing to lawyers by integrating with products like Clio, LeanLaw, TSheets, and many popular CRM applications. These integrations can save you time and make your office more efficient.
