PensEra Knowledge Technologies announces Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP has selected TimeKM™ as its global time tracking solution for its lawyers and staff.
With offices in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Miami, Jersey City, Paris & Tokyo, and a team of more than 340 experienced practitioners available in over 30 specialized practices, Hughes offers expertise in a wide-range of practice areas delivering superior, individualized client service.
TimeKM will provide Hughes' lawyers and assistants with an integrated, collaborative system for time tracking - allowing the professional to capture Any Time, Any Where on Any Device. Steve Sommer, CIO at Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP, comments on his selection of TimeKM for his firm:
"Our attorneys are focused on providing high quality, high value work and handle large projects affordably for our global clients. It is our team's responsibility to deliver the best technology to support our attorneys in delivering value to their clients, while encouraging stronger internal management and results.
"At Hughes, we recognized a need to revamp our legacy time entry system - so we undertook a review of various specialized systems including those offered by our current Financial System vendor. TimeKM was the clear winner, given its focus on contemporaneous time capture - providing our attorneys the option to select from various capture methods to reflect their personal preferences, while delivering the power to accurately track time as they perform the work.
"In addition, TimeKM not only addressees our current needs, but clearly demonstrated a compelling vision of the future of time tracking as we continue to extend our reach as a global player."

"We are noticing a trend, as leading law firms re-evaluate their existing time entry systems implemented some 8-10 years ago: that there is a movement towards productivity based systems (from the traditional administrative based model) that co-exist well with the attorney's day-to-day work habits. As law firms consider the new realities of changing work methods and advanced technology platforms, traditional systems like DTE and Carpe Diem are being replaced with TimeKM," said Varsha Bhat, President of PensEra. "Hughes was especially excited about TimeKM's 'In Vision' philosophy that keeps the time-tracking requirements of the firm accessible without being intrusive in the attorney's daily client interactions. We are very pleased to have Hughes join our growing TimeKM client base, leading the movement amongst New York based firms!"
