Who Bill4Time is For

Bill4Time is a good choice for a smaller firm that has granular time-tracking needs and wishes to be able to track productivity. With their recent updates to incorporate law practice management features, this software would also be a good fit for attorneys looking to have a more all-in-one software. However, it has limited integration capabilities and is only able to sync one way with QuickBooks, so attorneys who are wedded to the latter would likely find it a poor fit. Given that importing data into Bill4Time is also relatively difficult, it probably is a bad choice for attorneys that have used a different program for a long time.
