If you run a small practice, or are a solo attorney, you know firsthand how hard it can be to stay focused and get work done. So, when the technology in your office is more often a distraction, than a helping hand… you start to wonder what else is out there. And, could it make my daily life easier?
Smokeball, a newcomer to the legal practice management scene, closed out 2015 with strong growth and raving client reviews. So what’s all the fuss about?
It’s simple. A case management, or legal practice management system should do one of two things; One, act as an internal search engine, finding a phone number, email address, appointment, or note. Or two, actually execute a portion of your work for you through productivity tools, or integrations.
Smokeball, does both. With powerful features such as; document automation, automatic email management, and tasks workflow tools, small law firm case management has been transformed.
Before Smokeball, form tools, and document automation services were sold as stand-alone software, or if included in a case management system required a heavy amount of time… and money to customize for your particular practice area. Leaving time and budget conscious small firm attorneys no choice but to keep practicing with paper, re-using old documents, and re-entering the same client information over, and over and over again.
Smokeball comes out of the box with pre-configured matter types for over 200 general and specialty practice areas. No more custom fields, no more arduous mail merge letter disasters. And… if they don’t have your area of law, have a chat with them, you’ll be pleasantly surprised how eager they are to build one for you.
It’s because of their unique understanding of the practice of law that makes this solution so different. When you sit down and open your first case, you’re presented with fields that match up to your documents. Which means, after you fill them in, a letter, court form, agreement, or any other document can be populated in a matter of seconds. Then seamlessly turned into a PDF, attached to an email, and sent to your client.
Work done, and out the door.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Because of Smokeball’s integration with Word & Outlook, your email is being followed… and filed. With every response, attachment and critical comment included. All neatly stored and saved in the same matter file you’ve been working from the whole time.
Finally, tools and technology are great, but what use are they if you don’t actually know how to use them? With your purchase of Smokeball comes a personal Client Success Manager that will act is your own personal Smokeball trainer and setup liaison as you make the transition.
So, if you’re ready to say goodbye to lost emails, and hello to documents drafted with the click of a button, and seamless practice organization, than it’s time to check out Smokeball. Bonus, on January, 14th you can do so for free, without talking to a sales person, live and online.
