Today, we’re excited to announce the first of a series of dramatic new application improvements and practice area-specific add-on modules with our Braavos release. We ushered in the new era of cloud-based legal software in 2007, and with this release we continue to pioneer in the area of web app performance, user interface design, and ground-breaking functionality for law firms.
Braavos includes a new optional add-on module for Insurance Defense firms, which greatly simplifies the arduous tasks these law firms face when billing their clients. Our powerful batch billing feature also received an overhaul, including an 80% speed increase in running invoices as well as bulk-editing capabilities for users in charge of billing. Also, our engineering team has been hard at work optimizing the technology stack, resulting in a huge boost to Rocket Matter’s overall responsiveness.
For Insurance Defense firms, Rocket Matter’s new add-on module is a major improvement from existing products and processes. The module allows for widespread LEDES code entry across our product’s Bill-as-you-Work™ technology, including timers, tasks, calendar events, document uploads, and more. Insurance Defense firms can capture LEDES codes while working in Outlook and Word documents via Rocket Matter’s Office 365 plugin.
For the people who have to run and submit bills, we added the ability to audit LEDES invoices to identify common rejection errors. Also, when LEDES invoices are run in Rocket Matter, they can be paired with human-readable invoices so that administrators do not have to parse an arcane, pipe-delimited file.
One of Rocket Matter’s major differentiators among legal practice management software providers is the power of its batch billing. Now, the batch billing is even better, with a massive speed improvement and major user interface improvements. Firms with hundreds or thousands of invoices can run them in minutes, with a speed improvement in Braavos of 80% over the previous version.
Users can bulk-edit time entries from the batch billing grid. Legal administrators no longer have to leave the billing screen to make adjustments to matters, and multiple changes can be made at once. Additionally, the batch billing screen can now be printed in a clean format for auditing, eliminating the need to run pre-bills for many firms.
