Indianapolis law firm, Krieg DeVault needed more time entry options for its attorneys. Given the amount of time spent outside of the office, attorneys were requesting a simple and easy-to-use solution that would allow them to enter their time as work was completed.
While a handful of attorneys at the firm dutifully entered their time daily, most did not. In fact, most attorneys’ time entry was submitted 30 days after the work was completed. Timekeeping simply wasn’t a priority for Severson’s 120 attorneys managing aggressive case loads. Given the lag between action and entry, the firm’s management suspected that the firm was missing out on billable hours that weren’t being recorded. After all, how accurate can a time sheet be when a busy attorney is riding on the recollection of work completed over a month before?

The world is going mobile, and legal work is no exception. More and more, attorneys find themselves completing client work on the go – on the way home from work, at their kids’ soccer games or in between meetings. Like most other professionals, attorneys rely heavily on their mobile devices to complete their work. It’s actually quite difficult to remember what life was like before iPhones and Blackberrys.
"iTimeKeep is the only app that I have installed on my iPhone and iPad that has truly changed my life. I hate having to enter my time and iTimeKeep has taken that terrible task and made it easy, so much so I now WANT to enter my time. Every chance I get I am showing off my iTimeKeep to my colleagues."
"iTimeKeep allows me to enter my services real time so that they are completed by the following morning. This allows me to focus on doing my job and to be more productive."
"iTimeKeep Desktop is an efficient and easy-to-use app that saves me a significant amount of time every day."
"Since I have started using iTimeKeep I have rarely missed a day of contemporaneous billing, even though I am rarely in the office and in the past, I would often fall days behind. This had not only helped me keep curren,t but I also capture much more billing in the process. I encourage all attorneys in my firm to use iTimeKeep daily and highly recommend this product to all billing attorneys."
"Time entry is the least favorite task of most attorneys in private practice, so anything that cuts down the drudgery should be snapped up. iTimeKeep is phenomenal. It cuts in half the time I spend putting in my entries. It is convenient, intuitive, and quick. I can enter time from my phone or iPad, which suits a mobile practice and lets me put in my time when and where it is convenient for me. iTimeKeep remembers all my recent client matters, the hours numbers are at my fingertips like a calculator, and I set up auto complete for frequently used phrases so there is less typing. It also has a nice filter that allows searching by client, time period, status or words within entries. Thanks to iTimeKeep for a very useful app that I now can’t do without!"
"One of the things we love about iTimeKeep is that it’s not intrusive. We make a decision about when we want to enter time. It’s not constantly popping up in our face. Training is so minimal, I don’t think we’ve ever trained anyone for more than three minutes on it. The interface is very simple, and the price point is right. We wanted a ROI within a year, and you guys hit that perfectly. It makes my attorney’s life very simple.”
“It takes the pain away from the worst part of our job.”
“This app makes me almost enjoy keeping up with my time, after many years of my tremendous struggle with timesheets. I highly recommend you try this new system.”
