Likelihood to Recommend

AbacusLaw

AbacusLaw allows the whole law firm to be on the same page with access to a community calendar, billing, etc. It is a bit of a bummer that you need to put significant time into training to understand how to use AbacusLaw fully and get the most out of it. I wish there were quicker and easier ways to train and let people know about new additions

SimpleLegal

SimpleLegal is well suited for many different sized law firms that want to centralize their matter management, spend management, and vendor management into one platform. It also meets the most rigorous reporting requirements.

Cons

AbacusLaw

  • Explaining new products or services in a way that is quick and easy to understand

SimpleLegal

  • I didn't feel like the spend management system was enough, we bypassed it and used QuickBooks.
  • SimpleLegal has a bunch of API integrations, but I think they could use some more "out of the box" integrations that didn't require a developer to set up integrations (which their open API does allow). This is just nitpicking though, they do have a good amount of out of the box integrations.

AbacusLaw 7.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

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.

SimpleLegal

SimpleLegal was much easier to use and train users on than Time Matters. SimpleLegal had all of the functionality but not as many customizable features as Time Matters.

Return on Investment

AbacusLaw

  • We have been using Abacus (and previously Amicus) for so long it is hard to tell.
Kyndal Duff | TrustRadius Reviewer

SimpleLegal

  • SimpleLegal really helped streamline our operations by allowing us to retire some legacy systems that each had 1 purpose and replace them all with SimpleLegal's all in one application.
  • SimpleLegal saved us tons of time creating manual reports for our managing partner using its build in reporting/analytics module.
