For many law firms today, capturing all billable time
continues to be an elusive goal. Despite the best efforts of
fee earners and their support staff, as much as ten percent
of billable time slips through the cracks due to imperfect
time-recording practices. Thanks to Time Builder™,
developed by Thomson Reuters Elite partner IntApp™,
losing billable time no longer has to be the case. Time
Builder seamlessly and accurately monitors lawyer
activities and drastically reduces missed billable time.
Working in the background, Time Builder automatically
monitors key applications lawyers use throughout the day,
including document creation, email, calendar, phone, and
mobile devices. Using intelligent cross-referencing,
categorization, and classification, Time Builder automatically
and accurately matches lawyer activity with clients and
matters. At the end of the day, lawyers receive a consolidated
daily report of their client- and matter-related activity,
showing the exact duration of each task.
Time Builder is an easy-to-use product that can help
everyone in your firm increase billings and reduce overhead.
Whether your lawyers already track time electronically as
they work, take notes for later entry, or delegate time
recording to their secretary, Time Builder easily supplements
existing time keeping practices. What’s more, it captures
activity while lawyers are working away from their desks—
in transit, from client premises, and at home.
By efficiently and seamlessly capturing time that otherwise
could be missed, Time Builder helps law firms bill more
time, gain firm revenue, and increase partner profits.
With Time Builder you can move ahead to a more profitable future knowing that you are working with one of the
world’s leaders in providing professional services firms with
the most innovative of business solutions. With more than
60 years of experience, Thomson Reuters Elite has the
proven expertise to make it happen for you.
