  • New features released, such as a dashboard that provides users with instant visibility into the tasks awaiting their review, a new reporting interface that emphasizes fast navigation and customizable filters, and an upgraded Timekeeper Rates Review experience which provides immediate insight into requests for increased rates and allows users to quickly take action.
  • AI innovations launched, such as PDF Check, which automatically verifies that the correct bill-to information is included on every PDF invoice, and Cost Center Budgeting, which allows the legal team to track departmental budgets while providing AI-powered forecasting of potential budget overruns.
  • Recognized as a Spring 2023 Enterprise Legal Management (ELM) Leader by G2.
  • Published the 2023 Legal Operations Compensation Survey Report to promote pay transparency in legal operations. The report received over 500 downloads in the first two weeks following publication.
