Pricing technology for law firms is no longer a nice to have. It’s a necessity. Demand for alternative fee arrangements like fixed fees and discounted rates is at an all-time high, meaning law firms need to plan and track their costs more effectively.
A recent BigHand survey revealed only 7% of respondents mandate the use of set budgets for legal matters, and for the majority, error-prone technology like Excel is still being used to create and monitor matter budgets. A trend law firms know needs to change.
To be competitive, law firms need quick, consistent ways to budget work so they can meet client demands for transparency and maintain profitability. Key to this is using a pricing tool that lets you easily adjust resources and rates to create matter budgets that deliver the best pricing for you and your clients.
