It’s more good news for Intapp as DAC Beachcroft reports today (12 April) that it is now live on Intapp Time – the firm previously used Tikit Carpe Diem according to Legal IT Insider’s top 200.
DAC’s relationship with Intapp has expanded under IT director David Aird, who in 2015 signed up to Intapp Integration Builder and Intapp Flow to connect and manage the UK top 50 firm’s software applications and rationalise its IT infrastructure.
Critical to the decision to move to Intapp Time was Intapp’s support for mobile time recording and users attest (see below) as to how easy Intapp is to use on a Surface Pro.
“Accurate time recording is essential to understanding the cost of delivering services to our clients, particularly for fixed fee engagements. At the same time, it’s important to ensure that the time recording process is made as frictionless as possible for our fee earners,” said Aird.
“Intapp Time is streamlining the time recording process by helping our timekeepers capture a record of the client work they are performing throughout the day, including work they might have otherwise missed. Support for mobile time recording was especially important to us given that many of our fee earners are working out of the office, often on-site with clients.”
He adds: “As we built the business case internally for Intapp Time, we worked on reviewing the potential ROI, and it was very clear to us that even marginal improvements across various metrics – additional billable hours recorded per lawyer, reduced time to collection, improved realisation rates, reduced time spent on time entry and corrections, and improved profitability on alternative fee arrangements – would deliver a tremendous benefit to the firm. And with a more complete view of how much it costs to serve our clients, we can make better informed decisions about how best to resource specific types of matters.”
A legal director at DAC Beachcroft commented: “I am very impressed with Intapp Time so far and am already a huge fan, despite my initial apprehension about moving to a new system after having used the same time tracking tool for the last 18 years. I can see tremendous benefits in the time capture feature, which has helped me to record more time than I would otherwise, and have also been happy with how easy it has been to use with Surface Pro.”
