CosmoLex

Because it is cloud based, CosmoLex is well suited for a lawyer starting up a practice as there is no need for a server. It is also very easy to use from home as it doesn't require a remote session to login, but can be used from any device.It is not well suited for a practice that requires a very fast pace for accounting as it takes a bit of time for each transaction to load, frustrating the user and causing them to lose momentum. On the other hand, if time is taken to set things up, there are a few tools that make importing expenses much quicker, and time can be made up by just taking some time to set things up.

The legal world- you need this program. There are plenty of other options out there, but TM is by far the best that I have used. This program works for an office of 1 to an office of 100. I have no clue how it would work in any other jobs, it is designed for legal work.

Time Matters

  • Tie Matters handles event and to-do notifications well. This ensures that all SOL's and due dates are met.
  • Time Matters does case management tasks well, including documenting cases, documenting client and opposing counsel interactions and court orders.
  • Time Matters does a good job of syncing all case data to a users Outlook Calendar, to ensure todo and event notifications on a users Outlook/phone.

Cons

CosmoLex

  • Multiple line data entry - when adding multiple expenses manually, you have to wait for the software to load after each entry.
  • Loading can be slow - this includes generating reports, preparing checks, inputting data entries, moving from matter to matter - you have to wait a few moments with each action.
  • Cost - more costly than some other software options (similar in price to Clio).
  • Rather than pay for licenses, you pay per user, so you can't just purchase 3 licenses for 4 users without having some issues. When one user logs in and someone is already logged in under that username, the first user is logged out, even if they are in the middle of doing something.

  • The software crashes a lot.
  • The plugins for Office and Adobe are unstable.
  • The whole software package appears to be built for the year 1995.

Usability

There is far too much reliance on symbols versus words, and it is sometimes difficult to navigate to the function you need. CosmoLex offers great support, knowledge base, and training, but sometimes you just don't have an hour to spend learning how to do a basic function that you have forgotten, and you just need it to WORK. It would be great to have the option of having word labels instead of picture symbols. It would also be great to have full functionality in the smartphone app. It just is not good. Not good. Pretty much everything keeping me tied to CosmoLex is on the money management side.

I think that CosmoLex actually relies so much on its stellar support infrastructure that it forgets we don't actually want to have to use it. Just make the darn thing easier to navigate and understand, and you won't need all that client-facing support. You can choose chat, email, phone, knowledge base, embedded training videos within the different pages, but darn it all, I just want it to be more intuitive instead.

There is no unpaid support. They insist on a service contract for support, either with the manufacturer, or with a re-seller.

Alternatives Considered

CosmoLex

I used CosmoLex over PC Law mostly because it was cloud-based, and I used it over Clio because the accounting for Clio required the use of both Clio and QuickBooks which made for very inefficient data entry. CosmoLex is slower than PCLaw when inputting entries, but I believe that in the long run, it will be better as CosmoLex is better situated to move forward with new technology.

So Juris and TM are both LexisNexis products. I dislike Juris greatly and the only thing we use it for is billing because we already had it and it was compatible with TM for billing purposes. Juris doesn't allow you any kind of document storage or management. You can make a "note" but what good does that really do me? In my opinion, Juris is good for billing only (not client management) and there are other options like QuickBooks that really outshine it.

Return on Investment

CosmoLex

  • Took a lot of headache out of accounting (I started with Clio which integrates with QuickBooks and it was a nightmare dealing with it until I switched to CosmoLex).
  • An approved trust accounting software is required in my jurisdiction, and CosmoLex allowed me to get started with very little delay.
  • When transitioning to a different office, CosmoLex was new to my new assistants, and they were set in their ways. There are currently few legal assistants in the area with any familiarity with CosmoLex, so there is always a preference for PCLaw or EsiLaw among the staff. CosmoLex ruffled a few feathers when my staff were forced to learn something new.
