Sick of Candy Crush? Cloud-based practice management system provider Rocket Matter has rolled out a gamification system for law firms that are new to its time and billing program.

After working with thousands of law firms, the Florida-headquartered company says it identified training as the one thread that allows law firms to succeed in billing.

New users earn coins as they complete new tasks, and they are gradually guided through the application as they gain more confidence using the product. As users collect more coins, they are able to achieve higher levels as they become more advanced users.

Whether virtual coins are any kind of incentive to hard cash loving lawyers remains to be seen. But if anything can lighten up the pain of filling in time sheets, we think it must be a good thing.
