AbacusLaw

AbacusLaw is fantastic for a small firm. You can easily organize files, track timekeepers, and use billing codes that transfer to billing programs to easily create invoices. I do not think we use AbacusLaw to its fullest extent, which is unfortunate on our part. There are so many more things I know it can do that would solve a number of issues (i.e. using the softphone feature to bill telephone calls to files).

Sage Timeslips

If your organization needs to report to clients or other departments on a regular basis, then Sage Timeslips will help you create those reports. It contains all the client data you want it to, time spent for that client and every invoice ever created for that client. You can easily open a new client, close or suspend that client, and then open it again if necessary just with one click.

Cons

AbacusLaw

  • AbacusLaw appears to drop billing codes randomly, which I am unsure if that is an issue on the Abacus side or the billing software side. It causes issues when the times comes for billing because codes have to be reentered.
  • Integration with the accounting server error if the server is randomly logged off. While it is an easy fix, it shouldn't be something that happens as frequently as it does.

Sage Timeslips

  • I would like to see web access so that I am not limited to access only via my primary computer.
  • I would like the program to be more intuitive with self-correcting verbiage.
  • When inputting multiple data for one client, I'd like the program to be more intuitive by self filling or having the option to self fill the biller's name, the service and the client fields.

The support is generally good and relatively quick BUT when there is a new product or something they want you to buy, I have felt a bit harassed at that point by sales but when I have an issue I don't feel like support jumps on it as quick.

I have not had to use Timeslips support, but I know our Office Manager has had to use them from time to time. She reports that they are quite helpful, but are always suggesting we purchase an upgrade to our current program.

Alternatives Considered

AbacusLaw

We have just used AbacusLaw but have looked into other similar products such as Clio and have been disappointed in what they offer compared to AbacusLaw.

Sage Timeslips

A law firm I previously worked at used ProLaw to enter our firm's billing, sending out bills and doing reports. I only entered time using ProLaw, so I cannot go into much detail about it. However, Sage Timeslips can do a lot more than ProLaw, and it is a lot easier to enter new cases, enter time and expenses and run reports compared to ProLaw.
