Valuable software for billing at a law firm

Bill quick is a perfect solution to create invoices and be able to bill many different attorneys on different projects.

PROS

The ability to customize many of its features is great. You can setup and keep track of time associated with various cases, clients, projects. There are so many reports that you can run to keep track of your spending. Able to export invoices to LEDES format. Able to import time from excel spreadsheet.

CONS

It takes some time to learn the software, the tech support team was great in getting me up and running. If you want additional reports they have a custom report group but their cost is a bit high to modify reports. It looks a bit complicated but actually it is easy to use.

BQE CORE Review

CORE has helped with tracking the hours scheduled and utilized by employees on a project level.

PROS

CORE is easy to learn and use. It is a great aid in data analysis and provides a live look into the status of projects.

CONS

The application has some bugs which need to be worked out. Filtering needs to be improved for the Resource Allocation and Forecasting tabs. The ability to add or remove fields from reports should be added.

Tax & Legal Service Invoicing

PROS

The user layout is fairly easy to manage and self-explanatory.

CONS

Online credit card payments via Stripe have not worked well since we began using the product in August 2021. The error codes are never consistent and customer service never seems to be able to provide an explanation for the issues (even after ruling out user error). We also tried to set up ACH payments via Plaid and were never able to successfully link the systems. Many clients have had to call our office or mail a check to provide payment on their Core invoices which should have been online-pay capable.

Reasons for switching to BQE CORE Suite

We were moving offices and considering our options for cloud-based software. The transition from BQ Desktop to BQE Core was not without its difficulties but it was nice to have some transferred features which were still familiar.
