    Thank you Ron. A couple of notes.

    I am astounded by the time leakage in the legal environment, especially when you start to aggregate the number firm wide, sometimes well in to the 7 figures.

    Your are dead on with promoting descriptive narratives. It is soon forgotten that the invoice is a powerful and regular client communication vehicle.

    Secondly, the systems which scour everything and creates reports also create a chore. This data must be read, reviewed, and acted on, all of which takes time, which is a bad as having to put time in and prone to procrastination. A very vicious cycle.

    Implementing an integrated mobile time entry solution such as iTimeKeep allows for time entry from anywhere in just seconds on most all smartphones, cuts out the 'chore", and allows for the attorneys to get back to what they do best, practicing law.
