LexisNexis® Time Matters® 7 and LexisNexis® Billing MattersTM 7
LexisNexis® Time Matters ® 7 and
LexisNexis® Billing Matters 7 Plus ...
The perfect union of the front office and back office
The latest enhancements of Time Matters® 7 offer you the ease and efficiency of
front-office management and the full support of back-office accounting with
Billing Matters™ 7 Plus!
A good front-office practice-management
system helps your firm increase its earnings.
A good back-office accounting system helps
your firm retain more of its earnings. Putting
both systems together into one convenient
package helps improve your operations
and finances — so you can concentrate on
practising law.
Time Matters is designed to help you manage
every aspect of your law practice — cases,
clients, your calendar, documents, and even
firm communications. It includes the latest
advances in practice management, such as
a BlackBerry® link that sets a new standard
for handheld integration. What’s more,
Time Matters integrates seamlessly with the
LexisNexis® Quicklaw™ online legal research
service to record billable time.
Billing Matters Plus includes advanced
billing, full accounts payable and receivable,
comprehensive trust accounting, a flexible
general ledger, world-class cheque writing
and reconciliation, and more. Firms needing
basic billing can generate a bill and post a
payment in one easy step. Firms needing
advanced billing can use split, flat,
consolidated, and allocated fees. The new
accounting functions can be set for simple
bookkeeping with lots of flexibility, or can
be completely locked down to maintain tight
accounting controls.
Manage your cases and
your calendar, and perform many
other front-office activities — all
from one convenient location.
Time Matters integrates seamlessly
with the LexisNexis® Quicklaw™
online legal research service to
