Converting from one time, billing and accounting program to another can be a daunting process. At Kulik, Gottesman, Mouton & Siegel in Sherman Oaks, Calif., we realized that we had to make a change to accommodate our growth. Our firm now has 17 attorneys, up from 10 attorneys in 1998 when I joined the firm as its controller.

All told, we now have 22 timekeepers, and our invoice volume has nearly doubled over the last several years. Prior to expansion, our back office had been running fairly well using two financial programs: Timeslips by Sage Software for time entry, and Intuit’s Quickbooks for detailed accounting and financial analysis. But our increased workload made it much more time consuming and tedious to enter fees, costs and payments into separate programs. What’s more, we then had to reconcile the Timeslips data with the Quickbooks data on a monthly basis.
