Coyote Analytics Software


 

Coyote Analytics is a comprehensive financial software system specifically built to meet the needs of law firms that is available in both web-based and on-premise formats. The program includes modules for billing, accounting, and administration, as well as features to help with time entry, reporting, CRM, case management, document management, and calendaring.

Designed by accountants, Coyote Analytics’ accounting module allows users to create monthly budgets, amortize over one year, and easily copy and paste to and from Excel spreadsheets. E-billing is quickly accomplished through the system, and worksheets can be edited from a pre-bill view, which allows billing attorneys to adjust fees and expenses and create edit lists. Case management, the core of any law firm, is kept organized and safe through the program’s history tracking feature that alerts users of key events. With a quick hotkey stroke, all information pertaining to a case is pulled up in a snapshot view, giving attorneys immediate access to documents, notes, and even billing details.

We especially like the program’s Time Entry module that captures time through mobile apps, allows users to keep multiple timers open at one time, and provides a dashboard widget that allows users to either select a client from a list or create an entry with pre-populated fields. Attorneys can also set up compliance rules, reducing the time it takes to bill each client.

We recommend Coyote Analytics to small and medium-sized firms with up to 100 timekeepers. They are a great fit for any specialty, including criminal, divorce, litigation, tax, and government. The system is available in both web-based and on-premise deployment models and is Mac and iPad compatible.

It is easy to use and allows you to track numerous statistics by file, client, etc.

Likes Least

At times it seems there are too many fields and options to enter.

Recommendations

It's the best time entry system I've used so far. It is not exactly intuitive to use at first, but once you become familiar with the various options it is quite easy to use.

Ease of use. Easy to track information. Easy to compile data and keep track of clients and specifics

Likes Least

Can't think of anything. Perhaps there is an easier way to enter items quickly. It would be nice if a step could be removed somehow or multiple similar entries could be entered more quickly.

Recommendations

Nothing that I can think of. Should make sure to use the product in real life situations.

Easy to use and quick to enter time entry with use of designated shortcuts; easy to read layout of all time entered.

Likes Least

It seems a bit burdensome to go back and forth when trying to view others' time and then flip back to your own time entry.

Recommendations

Keep it efficient; time entry is an important but tedious task that should be kept efficient and effective.

I really like all the reporting it does. We have had to have some customized reporting done since we are a law firm, and the reports are extremely helpful. We are waiting on a couple more in the next release. Being able to unfinalize bills is a huge ticket item for us, since our previous billing system did not handle that well at all. Whenever I need help, they are always available and will sit with me at any time day or night to help me understand something. Very easy to maneuver from. I love the group blocking and editing; that has made my life so much easier.

Likes Least

Wish you could just delete the entries that need to be reversed out instead of having all those extra line items in there. I am OCD, so that is just my little distraction when I see them. Would like to have a training session on just reporting since this software does so much. Need to make time to schedule that.

Recommendations

Make sure you have your old accounting system really cleaned up before converting. My timeslips had some issues with some old accounting items that were voided that didn't clean up well in the conversion. Know what reports you want ahead of time and have them made before you begin. Otherwise, this has been such great new software.

The software has everything you can think of in it. It's extremely easy to navigate from Accounts Payable to GL. The attorneys at my firm really enjoy how user-friendly it is for them to enter their time and do their billing online from anywhere. The accountants and IT personal at Coyote knows their stuff, and it's hard to stump them on anything. They're always available promptly with answers.

Likes Least

Nothing -- Everything works like it should and if it doesn't, it will work within the next 15 days or less.

Recommendations

Take a look at the demo, especially for your billing, your attorneys will love it. Our billing process has been paperless now for 2 years. I can't wait for the next big thing -- Paperless AP. I'm sure it will be their real soon. Customer Service is excellent. It's the best I have ever worked with.

Okay, you've stumped me. I can't answer this one.

Recommendations

Review multiple products, have each vendor deliver a demonstration of their product, involve as many people from your firm as you can, and be sure to call other firms that are using the products.
