PensEra's TimeKM will provide Spiegel lawyers and their assistants with an integrated, collaborative system for time capture – allowing the professional to capture time and activities Any Time, Any Where on Any Device. Deciding on the TimeKM Enterprise solution for their firm, François Demers (Partner in Charge of Technology) at Spiegel observed that:
"Our clients have always been our most important asset. With lawyers increasingly away from the office serving our clients, the TimeKM Mobile solution was paramount in our selection process. But, the value of the TimeKM desktop solution also allows our attorneys to collaborate with their secretaries as they would in the office. This means better information is captured at all work points for truly more accurate billing that increases client satisfaction - all without extra work for the attorney!"
In evaluating the option of replacing their existing time entry application with a new enterprise time tracking solution, Spiegel reviewed the alternatives available on the market. Seeing the power of the TimeKM collaborative model, the TimeKM selection was made.
"The mobile needs of a lawyer beg for a solution that is simple and easy to use, while remaining robust in its capture options. The ability to tailor the mobile interface to suit the needs of the lawyer is of high value to retaining the independence of the attorney, while maximizing what is typically seen as an administrative but crucial function of a law firm - time capture." said Varsha Bhat, President of PensEra. “We are excited about the deployment of TimeKM at Spiegel Sohmer Inc., and anticipate higher lawyer participation in their time capture efforts than ever before!”
