Time59 is a Hidden Gem - Outclasses the competition at a fraction fo the price, with no hidden costs

This product is a great solution that requres almost no training. I recommend it highly. Gives you a competitive edge and professional billing and collection from day one. It also shows you how out of touch much of the rest of the market is with its pricing structure, touting funcitonality that this product has at minimal cost, and that is much more user friendly than some of the much more expensive alternatives. You will be quite surpirsed at how robust and well organized this product is. Also, you get 30 days to check it out without payment. I have referred some others who now use this priduct with great results.

Pros

This is an invaluable cost effective tool for that should be considered by any small firm that is cost conscious but wants a high quality product. Time59 is VERY easy to use, can be learned literally in minutes and is functional as soon as you enter a single client. It focuses on "Clients" (matters) and "Projects" (multi-use but mostly for additoanl users). Time59 is highly intutitive in terms of use which I find lacking in many of the more expesive products. Set up a project for the client and a rate and you are ready to go. Set up additonal users as additional Projects by Client (one of the only things that is a little unusual). Set each client matter up as a new "client."The functionality of this project is terrific. It does everything that the big names do in terms of time management, billing and collecting. Syncs with LawPay. Direct Email Invoicing. Trust Account management. Free telephone support which is very helpful. With a few tweaks, this product does all that you need it to do. While it does not "sync" with Quickbooks. I view that as a blessing. Who needs the complexity? Export multiple reports to Excel, by your set categories, for accounting. I use this product to track firm expeses and reimbursements which are set up as additional accounts. Also, there is also a free App for users to input time should you not want them to have full access. Just make sure they are set up as Projects on the Clients in which they bill. For an inexpensive alternative, terrific!

Cons

Few "teaks" you need to get used to such as projects set up for each user. Also, you can't really have clients with mutiple matters as each matter must be set up as a client. HOWEVER, there is a function to categorizer all cleint matters together so that they can form a group.

The Reports are excellent and quite comprehensive. It would be nice if there were links to them right from the main screen though or from the particular client matter.

This is not a comrehensive case management solution. It is just for time management, billing, collections and trust account managment, and recieipts and receivables tracking. It does mostly everything on the acounting side except issue checks (those are on-line for the most part nowadays anyway). So if you need checks to be issued from the software, this product is probably not for you.

If you need comrehensive case management, docuement mangament, calendaring, etc. in the same software package as your acounting and billing functions this product is not for you.

Absolute Best Choice in Timekeeping / Billing Software for Solo and Small Law - - And I DID the rese

Time 59 is a phenomenal piece of software, at an incredible price, that has become invaluable to my law practice. I'm an experienced Solo Lawyer. I'm a real person, expressing my honest opinion, not compensated or incentivized, nor was I solicited to do so by Time 59. I just wanted to. Time 59 is that good. I have used T59 for about 15 months. I love it. It is designed Very well, and does Exactly what I need, Easily, Intuitively, Quickly, with no Hassles, and it does NOT have a bunch of fancy bells and whistles that I'd never use. This software author has achieved the perfect balance between (1) comprehensive, full featured, covering all needs and tasks that really matter, versus (2) keep it simple, intuitive, elegant, slimmed down, lightweight, not bloated. The learning curve is as easy as one could possibly hope for. I was entering time and generating invoices within minutes. I did have various questions, over the first few months. Many were answered in the Online Tutorials and FAQ's (Note: the owner assures me he is working to make all that online help even better, easier, more intuitive.) But I'm not real patient, so when I need the software to do something right now, and I can't figure out how, I just call Time 59. The owner and software author answers. He'll walk you through how to 'make it do' that function, in live time. (Super nice guy.) In short, I use it about 30 times a day, every day. I can no longer imagine practicing law without it, and the ONLY other thing I'd say That about is email, and word processing! It is the best $99 per year, that I spend on ANYTHING. (Note: Comparison to Law Practice Management (LPM) Software: I thoroughly investigated Clio, MyCase, Cosmolex, Practice Panther, and many others. They all cost way more, and do a ton of stuff that I simply do not need and would not use. If you're a solo that needs (a) timekeeping; (b) invoicing; (c) accounting, including very good Trust Fund accounting; and (d) ability to generate metrics and Financial Reports about your practice, - - but you Do NOT want all the other stuff that comes bundled into LPM Software, then Time 59 is definitely your best choice.)

Best Buy for My Practice in Last 5 Years!

The year before I used it, I sent approximately 50 invoices over the course of 1 year. With Time59, my invoices have more than tripled and time spent preparing them has been cut from about 30 minutes per matter to under 5 minutes. This has immensely improved my collection rate and client satisfaction.

Pros

If you are looking for a tool to get your bills out and keep track of case expenses, you won't find a better product at a better price! Over the last five years, Time59 has likely had the most impact on pushing my practice forward. It does everything. Trust accounting, contingency fees, flat fees, modified flat fees, multiple time keepers, and multiple rates--you name it, it does it. It even integrates with my LawPay account.

Cons

Like any product, you'll need to test out various functions to see what they do and how they appear on the final drafts of your invoices. But you'll figure it out fairly quickly.

I stumbled on this billing program when I opened my new office. I could not be more pleased.

It is very efficient and user friendly!

Pros

It is SO easy to use. The few times I've needed customer support I received an immediate response (even after hours or on the weekend!) with a quick and easy answer to my question. This program also takes MUCH less time to fix input errors than my old billing program.

Cons

I can't think of a thing! I hate billing and this software makes it as painless as possible. I highly recommend this software!

I've been using Time59 for two years now. It is the best value on the market.

Pros

Great value. Great customer support. Overall great product. I have been highly satisfied with the performance and capabilities of Time59. I use it everyday. I always receive a quick response to support issues.

Cons

It would be helpful if Time59 would sync with Quickbooks. This would be a huge time saver for my office staff. In my opinion, this is the only function Time59 is lacking.

Excellent product. I have been using it for several years and no complaints.

Monthly billing program for law office.

Pros

Easy to use and customer service is very responsive, This is the first billing program in 30 years of practice that i have been happy with!

Cons

I have never figured out the interest option and sending out bills without any current activity could be easier - I end up hand calculating interest and adding the amount in as an activity.

Great Deal

See above

Pros

I would highly recommend Time59. Like most of these types of programs, it takes a little time to get up to speed, but once you do it is a very effective tool. Some parts are a little counterintuitive (to me at least), but reprrsentative is always very responsive in answering questions by email. The product is reasonably priced, unlike the competition. Which charges an arm and a leg.

Cons

Setting up projects and using timekeepers is still a little confusing

Great solo and small firm solution for billing

I first started computer time and billing with a dos version of Timeslips. It was exciting because it was affordable , and when you needed help, your call might be answered by the guy who developed the software. Time59 is like that. They have a passion for building the best and improving it, and giving the kind of customer service which only we old timers remember. Two of my biggest concerns were cost increases later and my data if I decide to stop subscribing. My rate won't ever change and, if I stop subscribing, the program an data is still available to me , I simply can't add any data. I don't see how you can be any fairer than that. I found it easy to get started with the free trial, and subscribed after two weeks. I like that I can enter time, and work on billing, from wherever I have an Internet connection. I love that I don't have to maintain a software installation and concern myself with compatibility issues. I like the simplicity and flexibility of the billing process. I don't have to "finalize" and can bill one, or a group. I do a lot of real estate closings and have a lot of client trust deposits and disbursements. Entering multiple entries for a single client is not as easy as I would like, but I understand that is being worked on. Also if you generate a bill which, by its length has nothing but one line on the second page, you can not force it to print on one page, or spread it evenly over two pages. There is not a single thing I miss in leaving Timeslips. One of the best decisions I have made in running my practice.

Time 59 -- Making Law Practice Management Great Again

I am a Chicago solo practitioner who has worked at law firms ranging from 18 to 1400 lawyers during the past 36 years. Going out on my own, one of my greatest concerns was finding a reasonably price billing software that would let me track and bill fees and expenses. I did a lot of reading about different programs, and picked Time 59 for a trial. It exceeded my expectations. It is amazing how fast I can generate .pdf's of bills and email them out in just a couple of hours. Team 59 also lets you monitor work in progress. When a litigation client asks where its fees stand for the month, I can send them a copy and paste of the work in progress summary screen in 3 minutes. Of course, you can also see your A/R at a glance for managing collections. Time 59 is an indispensable component of my practice and, as geeky as this might sound, Time 59 is not only easy but fun to use. (Who ever would have thought that using billing software could be fun?). Finally, the developer, Chris Monaghan, makes himself totally available for any questions and suggestions.

Great software product for solo attorneys who need a cost-effective way of tracking time and billing

Pros

Time59 is a simple, no frills cloud software package that is inexpensive compared to other products but still gets the job done.

Cons

Time59 can be a little too simplistic for small firms with multiple users as it seems really designed for a solo attorney.

The absolute best product for a small to medium sized law firm

I have been an attorney since 1997. I have worked at large law firms and medium sized law firms in New York. Now I have my own firm in Miami, Florida. This is the only software that actually "works" for me and my firm. I have tried many other software programs but they all are confusing and suffer from bloat. Time59 is exactly what we needed. It took about 5 minutes to get up and running and we haven't stopped using it since. Now we capture all of our time without wasting time clicking through screens to perform what should be simple tasks. I know that the more people that learn about Time59 the more it is going to become the go-to program for attorneys at small to medium sized firms. From the first time I tried it it was the perfect fit for me and my office. I know that if it works this well for me it will also be the perfect fit for other law firms. I can 't say enough about this software and I look forward to all upcoming upgrades. Unquestionably 5 Stars!

It is helpful and managing clients.

Still learning how to use it but it allows me to add notes and hours for all my clients.

Pros

Easy interface. Able to view and change information needed easily. Accesssble anywhere with online account.

Cons

Still figuring out invoice feature. Not intuitive. Perhaps not familiar with all features but the invoices created not always lined up with trust account information.

Great Billing Program for Solo Practitioner

Program is easy to set up and use for those of us who are not extremely tech savvy. The process of entering time and expenses, creating invoices, entering receipts is easy to do . Pricing is very reasonable. Invoices can be printed and mailed or sent via email. A link to the client's account can be included in the email. The account history available to the client includes all of the prior bills and payments and I haven't been able to figure out how to limit that. So there are a few small quirks such as this and also some billing features that I wish I could improve. They are not significant enough for me to have any desire to change programs though. I've contacted customer service a few times with questions and suggestions and they've been very responsive. Seem to always be working to improve the program. Can't imagine a better billing program for the solo/small firm, especially for the price.
