I highly recommend Tabs3 Software

We use Tabs for our timekeeping and billing, the Tabs3 Connect is a great feature for attorneys to enter their time on the go. The General Ledger and Accounts Payable software integrate well with each other and with Tabs, so that saves on duplication of work. Practice Master has great features and is a great database for containing the information needed for our clients.

PROS

The software is very user friendly, the programs are intuitive and the e-mail bills are a great function! We have been using all the products offered by Tabs3 for over 25 years. The upgrades always have something new and better when they come out.

CONS

There just isn't enough time for me to learn all the capabilities of the software.

Complete package for the small law firm

We were able to build a collections process that efficiently walks through the matter steps so that everything is done quickly and accurately. Setting up workflows that set calendar follow, merge documents, send emails, launch appropriate websites as needed, or do calculations.

PROS

We love it's ease of use and ability to customize the PracticeMaster module. It's intuitive and the billing side is very robust.

CONS

Because of it's versatility and customization features, you can easily get carried away with data collection.

Reasons for switching to Tabs3

Tabs/PracticeMaster was much easier to use, more stable and their customer support is outstanding!

Unethical business practices. Maintenance is a not good. Poor treatment of customers.

PROS

It does what it is supposed to do. I use Tabs3 for billing and for keeping track of my client trust account. It has many useful features and reports.

CONS

They had very bad service when it comes to maintenance. The software is not very user-friendly, first of all, so you're likely going to need technical and/or customer support. I've been using it for nearly 10 years, and this is how they treated me: I paid the same price for maintenance for the first three years, and everything was fine. Then they decided it was time to start gouging me. Every year, the price went up. The service I received was exactly the same, but they decided to charge me more and more for it with each passing year. I asked them to please lock me in at a rate, and that I was willing to sign up for a long-term commitment, but they refused, insisting that I pay more with each passing year. Over a 3-year period, the price went up by nearly 100%. Eventually, I terminated my maintenance plan to keep my office costs down. After a year off, I decided to pay for another year of maintenance, hoping to start at a fresh, low rate. But the opposite happened-- they not only quoted me an even higher rate than before, but THEY TOLD ME I WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR THE PREVIOUS YEAR (the year in which I received no maintenance services) in order to get them to agree to provide me with maintenance again. WOW. Money for nothing. That's not just sleazy, it's unethical.

A Simple Review by Lawyer

Using since forever and it has a wealth of information in it. Therefore, it would be hard to change. Younger staff members think it is cumbersome.

PROS

Synchronizes with Practice Master and Trust Accounting. Not having to repeatedly enter information. Conflict check is great, quick and easy

CONS

Cumbersome as it is really accounting based design. Reports are difficult sometimes to get the results you want. The overall billing process takes a lot of time, as we have to be sure lawyers & staff have all info correct.

Vendor Response

Deborah, thank you for submitting a comment. We are grateful for your business, and if you or your staff have any suggestions on making the software more succinct and less cumbersome, we’d love to hear about them. You can email wishlist@tabs3.com. Thanks again! Jay C., Sr. Training Specialist

Tabs3 Outstanding Technical Support

PROS

Tabs3 is a complete fully integrated practice accounting software that includes back office, time and billing, and trust accounting. THE TECHNICAL SUPPORT IS THE BEST.

CONS

Having used a competing product for almost 30 years, some of the functions are not intuitive, so there is a bit of a learning curve.

Reasons for switching to Tabs3

I left my former firm and started a new firm. My research resulted in the conclusion that Tabs3 was a more appropriate product for my new firm and was more reasonably priced. PCLaw was cost prohibitive. Also, Tabs3 technical support is far superior to PCLaw technical support.

Vendor Response

James, thank you for your comment! Some of the major selling points of our software are both the reasonable prices as well as the excellent support that we provide our users. We are pleased that you've successfully migrated from a competitor to Tabs3 products! Thanks again for your review. Jay C., Sr. Training Specialist
