The word “innovation” is tossed around so much that it has lost its meaning. At Bellefield, we define “innovation” as “making something better than it was before.” We don’t do product releases for the sake of making an announcement. We don’t push out new features, for the sake of having more capabilities.
Instead, we are obsessively focused on how to help law firms run more efficiently and protect revenue in the simplest manner possible – and we do this by removing barriers to time entry and compliance, and empowering timekeepers to work the way they want to work.
Our commitment to simplicity never wavers, nor does our obsession with knocking down the obstacles standing in the way of firms looking to achieve accurate and efficient time entry, along with billing compliance. This is what has inspired us from day one, and five years later we are even more motivated to create solutions for law firms to prevent senseless revenue loss due to poor habits, bad technology, and/or inefficient processes that don’t align with the needs of the firm or its timekeepers.
We’re so proud of the work that we’ve done to help firms realize more revenue by increasing billable hours through accurate time reporting, and preventing revenue loss due to billing rejections. In this release, we’re taking it to the next level to provide attorneys the fastest, simplest and most efficient way to enter time, as well as a direct path for billing managers to follow in order to eliminate billing rejections before they make it to the invoice. This will transform the ability of firms to win and keep clients, increase competitiveness and use the firm’s resources better.
See what you want to see, when you want to see it with customizable views based on your timekeeping preferences and add time from any view with one click! You can instantaneously glide between the Calendar, Dashboard, Timers and My Time views instantaneously. Whether you are a contemporaneous timekeeper, or somewhere in between, we are providing you with the flexibility to adapt based on your needs.
We’ve made it easier to be in control of your time, whether it’s on a monthly or daily basis. Timekeepers now have the ability to view the timecards for a given day through the calendar view, and then edit or add time as needed, day by day, from the same screen. And of course, you can print too!
You may not keep your time, but you have to know your time. What’s measured, improves. Therefore, we’re giving you the same helpful insights on your timekeeping performance that you know as stats, in a central location in the Dashboard, any month, any week or any year. Want to see detail? Just drill down to get a detailed view of My Time.
Today’s timekeepers are often working on several matters simultaneously and need the ability to quickly and easily record time when something comes up. iTimekeep’s new timer grid provides the ability to see all existing timers together, immediately start a new timer for any suggested matter or start a new entry .
We show timekeepers exactly which timecards contain billing errors and what’s needed to fix them so that the violation can be resolved before it reaches the invoice.
Now there is a simple and easy way to print your current view, with all details, including OCG Live™ Violations (errors, warnings and info).
From their desktop, timekeepers now have the ability to know exactly which timecards have violations associated with them as well as the ability to resolve them (personally, or in collaboration with legal assistants) before time is released to the billing department.
From a mobile device, immediately start a new timer for any suggested matter or start a new one from any view.
From their mobile device, timekeepers can now identify which timecards have billing violations and fix them before they reach the pre-bill/invoice, giving power to attorneys to manage compliance for their clients at the place where rejections originate.
We have made it easier to be in control of your time, whether monthly or daily, from your mobile device. Timekeepers now have the ability to view timecards for a given day through the calendar view, and then edit or add time as needed, day by day, from the same screen.
Staying on top of compliance is a priority for most firms and we have now made it easier to manage than ever before. For OCG Live™ customers receiving daily reports on revenue at risk by way of billing compliance violations, we’ve created a fast and easy way to fix violations on the spot or assign a correction to a timekeeper or staff member. The new Violations Report allows you to search violations for any day, filter and sort by any field, view the guideline/rule, and export to Excel and email.

Dashboard: Formerly known as “stats,” this view allows the reconstructive timekeeper to fix or review timecards and fill their missing time gaps. This is ideal for the user who doesn’t enter his/her own time but wants to stay on top of their performance and identify missing time at a glance.
Calendar: This view allows the reconstructive timekeeper to review timecards submitted by day and week and fill their missing time gaps. This is great for new users that are accustomed to working out of a calendar view.
Timers: Built for the contemporaneous timekeeper to provide a single view for managing concurrent timers. This is a helpful view for new users that are accustomed to “quick timers view” already existing in their timekeeping systems.
In the mobile app, Quick Timers are available by tapping on the Quick Timer icon.
