Centerbase Lets You Do Timekeeping & Billing Your Way

Centerbase is web-based law practice management software that allows for extensive customization. With its robust timekeeping and billing features, it is a sound alternative to legacy products that tether you to your desktop. And thanks to its custom workflows and triggers, Centerbase allows you to create forms, generate documents, set tasks, and customize your database to fit your firm’s needs.


Practice management software should help lawyers do what they do best—practice law—but often lawyers spend far too much time and energy tracking their time. Centerbase has robust timekeeping features to make sure attorneys can easily track time from anywhere. Time entries can be created right from within Microsoft Word and Outlook, and Centerbase’s mobile app means you can enter your time on the go.

Lawyers also have complex billing needs. Firms need to track attorney originations, allocate payments to multiple trust accounts, track budgets, and properly assign payments to various members of the firm. Lawyers have typically resorted to desktop-based programs to meet all of those needs. However,  because cloud-based Centerbase is so highly customizable, it allows firms to create billing practices to fit their unique needs.

Centerbase allows you to do things like write down invoices and moving billing entries if they were originally attached to the wrong matter. You can also split up payments across multiple timekeepers and accounts. If your state has particular trust accounting requirements, Centerbase can be configured to conform to those. To save you time, you can also batch generate all of your invoices, email invoices to your clients, and get paid by credit card. To make sure things look exactly the way you want, Centerbase lets you customize your invoices and create different designs for different types of clients.
