PCLaw Legal Billing and Accounting Software Goes Mobile
PCLaw Version 11 from LexisNexis Now Accessible Via Mobile Devices
and Integrates with Intuit QuickBooks
June 6, 2011 — NEW YORK, NY – LexisNexis (< a href="www.lexisnexis.com">www.lexisnexis.com), a leading global provider of content-enabled workflow solutions, today announced the launch of a new mobile application for PCLaw®, a leading legal billing and accounting software offering for law firms. The mobile application is offered as part of LexisNexis? PCLaw® version 11 software, which gives legal professionals a set of robust, yet easy-to-use tools to effectively manage time and expenses, billing and receivables, trust accounting, case and matter information and more. Today’s release marks the latest in a range of mobile solutions from LexisNexis launched this year that enable lawyers to improve productivity and efficiency of their legal practice while they are on the go.
"PCLaw version 11 users can access the system anytime, from any location where their web-enabled mobile device has Internet connectivity. This helps today’s law firm personnel work the way they want, enabling remote time and expense data entry as they occur to more accurately capture billable time, help speed up the billing cycle and improve cash flow," said Michael Lipps, vice president and managing director, Legal Business Software Solutions for LexisNexis.
The mobile service is compatible with Apple® iPad®, Apple® iPhone®, BlackBerry® and AndroidTM-based devices. No special software needs to be installed on the user’s mobile device, and no cables or synching are required to receive the most current information in the system. Also, data is encrypted end-to-end between the mobile device and the server, but is not stored on the device in order to better preserve information security.
In addition to offering a mobile solution, PCLaw version 11 software now integrates with Intuit® QuickBooks®, providing users the ability to export all PCLaw accounting data into one of the most widely used small business accounting applications on the market.
"PCLaw provides attorneys the legal-specific trust accounting, financial reporting and flexible matter management tools they need to keep their practice running smoothly but that are not offered by generic accounting software,” added Lipps. “By integrating PCLaw access with QuickBooks, users gain superior legal-specific billing and trust accounting capabilities without having to abandon the accounting software that is used by so many smaller law firms today."
Other system upgrades to PCLaw version 11 include new security features that allow law firms to better restrict access to sensitive data stored within the system.
Both the upgrade to PCLaw version 11 software and mobile access are available at no additional cost to customers that have an active PCLaw Annual Maintenance Plan. More information about PCLaw version 11 software and the new PCLaw® Mobility service is available at www.lexisnexis.com/pclaw-v11.
