Pros: Fantastic support and user friendly. Not cloud-based. Very affordable. Free data import.

Cons: So far I have not had a bad experience.

Overall: ProTempus is easy to use. The customer service is the best I have ever experienced for any kind of software. I like that it is not cloud-based. It is so user-friendly that it is easy to learn just from using it. It is also very affordable. I was pleasantly surprised that ProTempus imported all the data from my previous practice management software for FREE--no charge whatsoever. I am extremely pleased with ProTempus.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend this software to any small lawfirm.

Pros: 1) Non-cloud based & secure
2) Superior customer support
3) Easy Time tracking and billing
4) Flawless Quickbooks sync with self auditing feature
5) Secure Remote access via splash top
6) Affordable

Cons: Nothing!

Overall: I have used ProTempus for the past 3 years & cannot recommend it more. It is hard to find time management/billing software these that doesn't use the Cloud - but ProTempus prides itself on offering a non-cloud based program that is very secure, including remote access through Splashtop. The customer service is top notch! Ron Shaw customizes the program to fit our needs, always make himself available to patiently and kindly answer all of my (often "non-tech-savy") questions. I also absolutely love how easily it syncs with Quickbooks so that I do not have to do double entries - plus, it offers a self-auditing feature that helps me rest assured that our trust account is always accurate. It truly puts the "quick" back into Quickbooks and makes our office run so much smoother. I could not be happier with ProTempus and highly recommend to any firm or solo practitioner. Thank you so much, Ron Shaw. You are awesome!

Recommendations to other buyers: Greatest advice: Get ProTempus now!

Comments: The ease of use has increased my billing hours by over 20%. I also like the fact that the software is not cloud based. I feel more secure knowing that my client's billing information is not floating around in the cloud. The customer service has been fantastic. Mr. Shaw has gone out of his way to make himself available for any questions or help with any problems--even if it is a Saturday or late in the evening. I would highly recommend ProTempus to any law office, but especially small law offices or firms.

Comments: I have been in practice 40 years and have used Pro Tempus for over fifteen years (2 lawyers + 3 support staff). I had billing problems because I was never taught how to keep time. It seemed impossible. I could almost never remember to log phone calls and other work. I would work for hours in research or writing but when I was ready to bill, I could remember only a small part of my time, loosing great amounts of time.
Pro Tempus was a fast learning curve. It was only a few extra key stokes to keep my time records. In the first couple of years, my billings went up well over 25%. It is greater now.
I don't bill every phone call, but I could with a few clicks of the mouse and key strokes when I start a phone call and I have my time record. I make my entry as I complete the phone call and the clock keeps my time, my billing is accurate from the contemporaneous entry, and the client isn't complaining about the billing on the phone call. When the client gets the bill, he or she sees what we talked about, not just the meaningless "phone conference w/ client".
Before using Pro Tempus, when I would prepare a bill, it lacked a lot of detail, both in time and information, resulting in questions from the client. Now, I effectively have a 'one write' system, where I enter into the event screen what I did, and I can generate the invoice from that entry ¿ no additional record keeping or dependence on faded memory.
Pro Tempus has contact management, scheduling, document management, case management, billing, and an integrated A/R system that will sync with QuickBooks
The ProTempus system for handling emails will automatically route emails to the correct client's document folder for long-term archiving. ProTempus also interfaces with your smart phone and works safely with remote access for your laptop or home computer.
Literally, when I am on a contact, I can click on one button and access every document and e-mails or every time record regarding a client for over the last 15 years.
Most other billing programs use Cloud Based technology. I am unwilling to expose my clients¿ data in the Cloud. ProTempus is not Cloud Based.
ProTempus is very reasonably priced, way lower than the big name products that do less.
Their Web site is www.protempus.com.

Comments: In reply to your Post re: office Management software.

Used TABS III for years. Too much Program, costs, updates, and IT requirements for what I needed. Converted to ProTempus.
Conversion to ProTempus was handled by Ron Shaw. Easy process¿saved, converted, and organized all prior data.

Used for 4+ years, now. Very happy with it. I began with it¿s Billing Program & cost Programs, then extended into Word Processing/ Document Mgt./ File organization/ Case Mgt/ To-do/ Calendar /Archive/ etc.

IT IS PC BASED--NOT CLOUD BASED¿THUS SECURE AND DEPENDABLE (even if Internet is down).
PAY AS YOU GO¿NO CONTRACTS. DESIGNED for SMALL FIRMS (0-12 LAWYERS). Works well with PEER-TO-PEER Networks, or SQL Servers. Free Training for you and staff.
THUS, NEVER HAVE HAD A DOWN ¿time¿/ ¿LOST DATA¿.
See, ProTempus Web-site for free Trial/Demonstration.
See, also, You-Tube for Instructions/ demonstrations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3wFA1aHV7I
Integrates extremely well to M¿Soft, Dragon, Outlook, and even Splashtop, Team Viewer, & Android (Remote) Programs.

Ron Shaw is the Owner/ Chief IT person. Very helpful. Very creative fella.
Good Luck.
