Coyote Analytics Software


Coyote Analytics is a comprehensive financial software system specifically built to meet the needs of law firms. The solution is available in both cloud-based and on-premise deployment formats. It features modules for managing contacts, finance, documents, reporting, scheduling and billing process.

Coyote Analytics’ accounting module allows users to create monthly budgets, amortize over one year and import data from Excel spreadsheets. E-billing is 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. With few hotkey strokes, all information pertaining to a case is pulled up in a snapshot view, giving attorneys access to documents, notes and billing details.

Time Entry module captures time through mobile apps, allowing users to keep multiple timers open at one time. It also 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.

The solution is fit for small to midsize firms with up to 100 timekeepers.

Excellent Accounting Software

It has been a great learning experience and I am glad we made the change

Pros

It is easy to use. The quick entry feature is amazing and makes putting in time super easy and time efficient. The ability to submit the time all at once is great and to be able to pull up your time and change i if needed makes life a lot easier when dealing with billing errors. I also like how the entry changes color when all the fields are correct.

Cons

I do not like that there is not a spell check feature in the quick entry portion of the software. If you need to use the spell check feature you need to go out and check the spelling.

Good for a smaller firm

Many smaller firms are wanting the business intelligence that larger firms are used to having. Unfortunately Coyote doesn't deliver just yet. They are however evolving almost daily, adding features and fixing bugs.

Pros

Coyote's after-sale customer service is exceptional.

Cons

Coyote struggles to match what is offered by larger more mature products.

Coyote Accounting

I am able to use Coyote reports to pull out even more info than is on the printed report and use pivot tables in Excel to create just the report that I need and the way I want to see it. They have been very helpful in creating custom reports that I need as well. My overall experience with Coyote has been great; I have never looked back on our former Juris product and am thrilled that we made the changes we made.

Pros

I love that if I make a mistake and need to undo a transaction, you just click "unpost" and it will create all correcting entries and give you a new draft. I love that we can put attachments on an expense, the bank statement on the bank reconciliations, as well as many other features like collections and paperless billing. Customer service is fantastic as well.

Cons

I really like this software and there is nothing I don't like. I had my computer programmer review the backend and he said it was built correctly and absolutely solid. And, it has been extremely reliable.

I have used the product to enter my billable hours for a few years now

Pros

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

Cons

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.

Time Entry and Analysis Review

Pros

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

Cons

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.

Great accounting and billing software for the money!

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

The best legal software ever!

Pros

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.

Cons

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