    Billing Efficiency Boost: How Rocket Matter’s Features Turbocharge Law Firm Profitability

    Billing Efficiency Boost How Rocket Matter's Features Turbocharge Law Firm Profitability

      In an era where legal eagles are constantly strapped for time, efficient billing processes aren’t just a legal best practice—they’re essential to ensuring profitability. 

      While many firms rely on antiquated tools or industry-agnostic software to manage their billing processes, this strategy is like building a sports car without an engine—things may look great on the surface, but you’re not going anywhere in it. 

      It doesn’t have to be this way, though. With the right software, you can fuel your firm’s efficiency and stay in the fast lane on your way to profitability. 

      Drive your firm to success with Rocket Matter 

      Rocket Matter’s practice management software was designed specifically with legal professionals in mind, so when you use our legal-specific solutions, you’ll benefit from a robust suite of features designed to take your efficiency into overdrive. 

      Automated time tracking 

      At the center of Rocket Matter’s profitability-enhancing features is time tracking. 

      One of the biggest challenges for law firms is billing leakage. Rocket Matter’s time-tracking tools allow you to effortlessly track billable hours instead of relying on memory. They enable you to: 

      • Capture billable and non-billable hours in real-time  
      • Use multiple timers to move between projects  
      • Track time from your email  
      • Add time entries on the go 

      To go the extra mile, you can automate your time tracking through Rocket Matter Track, which follows all your work in your office apps, from emails to online research to document creation. The more time you capture (and the more accurately you capture it), the better your cash flow will be.  

      Expense management and invoicing 

      Rocket Matter’s ability to impact your firm’s financial health goes way beyond time tracking. Our platform’s sophisticated expense management and invoicing tools can boost your cash flow, which is a critical component of profitability. 

      Our software makes it easy to accurately and efficiently enter expenses, ensuring that all client-related costs are captured and categorized correctly.  

      This accuracy is mirrored in our platform’s invoicing capabilities, which allow you to automate bill generation and invoice distribution. With Rocket Matter, you can:  

      • Quickly convert tracked time and expenses into invoices  
      • Create custom invoice templates for different matter types, practice areas, or client groups 
      • Avoid compliance missteps with compliant trust accounting features  
      • Accept (and receive) online payments with client- and firm-friendly fee structures 

      This makes it easy for you to bill your clients at the end of each cycle quickly and increases the likelihood that clients will provide prompt payment to your firm.
