Case Study: Billing coordinator dumps Harvest for LeanLaw, saves 30 hours / month with real-time, continuous QBO sync

Billing coordinator dumps Harvest for LeanLaw, saves 30 hours / month with real-time, continuous QBO sync

The Challenge

Zahn Law Group started out as a small firm using Harvest software. With Harvest, attorneys weren’t able to report the origination and since the sync wasn’t continuous with QuickBooks, they had to constantly double check their numbers. Amanda, the billing coordinator, was stressed.

Attorney compensation was its own hassle: connecting an attorney’s time to a specific client matter was not dependable — timekeeping inefficiencies and lack of visibility to real-time data were the culprits. They needed to switch in order to grow the firm.

The Solution

LeanLaw’s anywhere / on any device timekeeping makes it so Amanda no longer has to chase down each attorney to collect time. Thanks to LeanLaw’s 2-way continuous sync with QuickBooks Online, all numbers are accurate in real time.

Attorneys get paid three times faster now that Amanda can trust her numbers: Origination is clear, time entries have vastly improved, and real-time data eases the stress of making timely and accurate payments to the attorneys.

“LeanLaw saves a lot of time and anxiety for both the administrative and the attorneys because we get accurate numbers and avoid mistakes.”
