Comply with your client’s guidelines at the point of time entry
As attorneys enter time, each timecard is graded and validated for compliance against client guidelines, in real time. If a violation is found, the appropriate message is presented to the user with the solution of what needs to be done to fix the entry. Timekeepers can decide if they want to fix the timecard later or fix immediately. At the end of the day, the goal is to make sure that timecards in the billing system are all in compliance before sending the bill to the client.
In order to achieve Compliance at the Point of Time Entry, the firm needs to implement OCG Live. OCG Live is a full Outside Counsel & Billing Guidelines management solution designed to:
- centralize your OCG
- provide the firm with one place to house guidelines and rules
- make it simple for finance and billing teams to update guidelines and rules in order to keep up with the changing pace of clients and vendors
For finance and administrators, this is the first time that OCG can realistically be managed. By managing at the point of time entry, there is potential to save the firm hundreds of thousands of dollars in would-be rejections. Furthermore, by getting it right the first time, firms will quicken collection cycles and reduce time spent by employees tasked with “cleaning up the mess” of non-compliant bills.
How it Works
Once your billing rules are live in iTimeKeep, you can take advantage of compliance at the point of time entry by creating a time entry.
Upon submitting your timecard, it is graded and validated for compliance against the client guidelines in real time. If a violation to the rule is found, the appropriate message is presented to the user with the solution of what needs to be done and fixed.
