[Press Release] Bellefield Announces New, First-of-Kind Features of iTimekeep and OCG Live™

Published on: July 23rd, 2019

The summer release is set to transform how law firms are managing compliance with client guidelines and keep track of time

PITTSBURGH, PA July 24, 2019 – Bellefield Systems, the providers of the fastest path to revenue through its time entry and compliance solutions, announce new, innovative features in iTimekeep and OCG Live™ as part of the 2019 Summer Release.  Unprecedented timekeeper flexibility, which is new in iTimekeep, helps firms realize even more revenue. OCG Live, already the industry’s only solution to enforce compliance at the point of time entry, now includes unprecedented, dynamic features which effectively eliminate the need for manual management of Outside Counsel Guidelines.  

Compliance with Outside Counsel Guidelines and the variance of timekeeper preferences complicate firms’ efforts to achieve the most efficient production, record and bill the highest number of billable hours—a paramount attribute of the most financially successful firms.  As such, firms write off non-compliance with Outside Counsel Guidelines (OCG) as a cost of doing business–and lose up to $15,000 a day as a result of appeals, payment delays, fee reductions and write-offs.

Bellefield’s iTimekeep provides attorneys with the fastest, simplest and most efficient way to enter time. Now, Enhanced Navigation, which includes customizable views, empowers timekeepers to instantaneously glide between the Calendar, Dashboard, Timer and My Time views with the unparalleled flexibility to adapt based on individual needs.  

OCG Live enables firms to manage and gain visibility into revenue at stake through daily compliance violations reports.  But more importantly, it’s “actionable.”  The innovative Dynamic Violations Report, new to OCG Live, allows users to drill down, search and sort, to spot violations so they can be corrected before they make it into pre-bills.  Also, the new Violations Indicator identifies and fixes compliance issues, on the spot, as attorneys enter time from their desktop or mobile devices. 

“We are all about compliance, more revenue and efficiencies for attorneys. In this release, we’re taking it to the next level to provide attorneys with 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,” said Gabriela Isturiz, Co-Founder and President of Bellefield Systems.

Some other new features include:

  • Supercharged Navigation: Choose how you want to work 
  • New Dashboard:  Stats is front and center
  • Quick Timers:  Manage multiple matters concurrently
  • Compliance Validation Errors:  Empower timekeepers to resolve compliance issues as they happen  

Bellefield continues its aggressive growth and commitment to innovation by providing its clients with a new release full of value for all users. This release is now available to subscribers.
