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.

This would be great software for a small office with a handful of files. For a modern law firm, not so much.

Tabs3 Software
  • The software usually boots without freezing.
  • Because editing after submitting an entry is impossible, we are required to be exact and precise.
  • Total hours per month entered are probably visible to someone.

Cons
Sage
  • 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.

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.

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.
