Big News: Intellistat Matter Planning is now part of BigHand!

Intellistat Matter Planning


Increase firm profitability through better matter management. Intellistat Matter Planning & Pricing’s sophisticated user-centric dashboard, scenario modeling, and budget tracking enable financial professionals, practice managers, and attorneys to effectively manage the most important drivers of profitability -pricing strategy and staffing methodology.

Intellistat Matter Planning & Pricing enables law firms to plan, track, and manage matters for all fee arrangements. The application enables users to create multiple what-if budget scenarios as they staff an engagement opportunity. With the what-if functionality, firms have the capability they need to analyze the expected profitability of a matter and then ultimately track the actuals costs against one or more budget scenarios. By tracking the matter budgets against actuals, the firm can monitor progress of each engagement and be alerted (via dashboard alerts, scheduled or triggered email summaries) when approaching key milestones and budgetary thresholds. Tracks all financial data associated with matter budgets (and actuals)from Leverage, Revenue, and Realization to Cost and Margin.
