Legal IT Newswire: Trio of US PMS clients upgrade to Orion 5

Financial and practice management software provider Orion Law Management Systems announces today (15 April) that its Orion 5 software, which was recently launched at the ABA TECHSHOW, has been purchased and implemented by several law firms across the U.S., including Galloway, Johnson, Tompkins, Burr & Smith; Aronberg Goldgehn Davis & Garmisa; and Dowling Aaron.
Orion 5 includes ePrebill Manager, a complete electronic workflow system for managing prebilling, as well as conflict avoidance/intake enhancements, and a cloud-based integration with map and rideshare apps.  This week, Orion will be demonstrating the complete Orion 5 system to legal administrators at the ALA 2019 Annual Conference & Expo in Grapevine, Texas (booth#711).
A. Ray Lightell Jr., chief operating officer of New Orleans-based Galloway, Johnson, Tompkins, Burr & Smith said:  “Our firm upgraded to Orion 5 on March 5th. We conducted our administrator training a few weeks later and planned to roll out the software to our testing attorneys during our April billing cycle.  However, two of our billing professionals asked if they could show two of our billing attorneys how to use the Orion ePrebill Manager in late March to help them through their last-minute billing rush.
“Our firm’s controller Daniel Simpson and I agreed to let the billing people show ePrebill Manager to the attorneys and ePrebill Manager worked.  In fact, one of those billing attorneys was in my office this morning praising the ease of use of ePrebill Manager.  This attorney will help us spread the news to our other billing attorneys. Our goal is to get as many billing attorneys using Orion 5 in the 2nd Quarter. Of course, there will be a few “old-timers” who will refuse, but if we get 90% to use the software, we will be much more efficient in our monthly billing cycle.”
