Overall Satisfaction with Rocket Matter

Rocket Matter is used as the firm's billing, scheduling, and contact management software. It keeps track of billable time and receivables, and is essential to capturing time and tasks on a regular basis. Rocket Matter also generates invoices and reminder statements easily, and is essential for the smooth running of the law firm.
  • Time capture - both via a timer and manual entry, makes sure you can get all the time entered on a regular basis in a quick and easy manner.
  • Decent mobile integration. iPhone and iPad app typically work well and allow you to input time and expenses away from the office.
  • Generating invoices and reminder statements is a snap, as are generating reports on income received and outstanding receivables as well as time worked.
  • The mobile app on occasion does have hiccups, especially on the iPhone. It can be cumbersome to enter time on it, and on occasion, time does not seem to get properly entered back into the system after entering it on mobile.
  • Having to create a matter and then go back in and edit it to set customized rates is a bit cumbersome and an unnecessary extra step. Setting rates should be easier.
  • Generating reminder statements is not very intuitive.
  • The monthly invoice report does not print out well from the website, and there should be an easier way to get a good printout to make a master list of invoices to be made. Earlier iterations did this better.
  • Rocket Matter makes billing and invoicing remarkably efficient and saves time over other methods.
  • Creates nice invoices that tend to get a favorable response from clients.
  • Keeps contacts and scheduling, and keeps matters humming along.
  • Reports are useful and generally easy to run.
Generally, Rocket Matter is more efficient for invoicing than Quickbooks, and does much better reports and invoices. Rocket Matter is much more attuned to legal business needs, and is superior to Quickbooks for a lawyers' billing and time/project management needs in just about every way.
Rocket Matter is excellent for billing and invoicing for hourly, flat rate, or contingency matters. It does a great job of ensuring time is captured and then invoicing. Trust accounting is vital and works very well indeed, which is always important from an ethical and business standpoint. The mobile app is still not quite where it should be, but the web-based version is excellent in office.
