“At The Systems Shop it’s about time – track it, save it, turn it into money”.
The Systems Shop is a boutique IT consulting firm that has specialized in the needs of small and medium sized law firms for more than 30 years. Our clients range from solo attorneys with no secretarial or support staff up to 70+ person firms with multiple offices in Manhattan, Long Island, Westchester and New Jersey. Whether you want a premises based system (meaning a network within the walls of your office), a hosted environment (with everything in “the cloud”) or something that combines features of both we can assist in choosing and assembling the pieces that will make everything work. Time/Billing and Case Management, Document Assembly and Document Management - these are all tools to help you service your clients effectively and efficiently.
Tracking time is not just about logging it for billing purposes – how often do we get to the end of the day and wonder where it went? KNOWING where your time is going is the key to better serving your clients and building your practice.
Saving time is not just about putting it “into the system” so you can bill it later. Saving time means finding better, more efficient ways to accomplish your daily tasks, whether it is writing a letter to a client, drafting a legal document or following a consistent, logical method to store documents, emails, and all the disparate items that make up your workflow so that you can answer client questions quickly without having to dig through piles of paper or search through multiple levels of folders in Windows Explorer or Outlook. It also means sharing information with your staff and associates in a way that helps EVERYONE be more productive and eliminate unnecessary or duplicative work.
Turn it into money – well, Abraham Lincoln once said “A Lawyer's Time and Advice is His Stock and Trade”. There are only so many hours in a day, and the better you and your staff are at using them productively the better off you will be.
