Comprehensive conflict of interest searching.
An essential part of practice management.
Amicus Cloud gives you the confidence
that comes from thoroughness.
Conflicts of interest can arise from such a wide variety of previous relationships. Only you can make the determination as to whether or not a conflict exists. You need to have everything possible in front of you when you do so.
Just searching names of previous clients is not enough. Even a search of all your contacts won’t do it.
Amicus Cloud helps you look at everything. When you give it a name to check for conflicts, it searches everywhere. Of course all your contacts and files, including anything you’ve put into custom fields on them. It also searches all your phone calls and emails on all your files. So for example if there was a reference to that name in the body of an email, or you made a note of it in a phone call, it will show up in a conflict search. Amicus even goes through the full text of all your documents looking for the name.
Reduce your risk. That’s why most insurance carriers will give you a discount on your insurance if you use Amicus Cloud.
The practice of law has so many rules involving time periods. Time for filing a defense, time for making title requisitions, time for notice of a meeting, time, time, time … You can spend a lot of time making sure you get the time right!
Amicus Cloud can help. Its handy Date Calculator will quickly count the days for you, and even take you right to the calculated date in your calendar.
Perhaps you need to quickly figure out a date that is 15 days from today. Does the legal rule require you to count calendar days or business days? Amicus will do either, and account for statutory holidays as it does so. Click ‘Show me the day’ to automatically open your calendar to the calculated date.
Or you might need to know the number of days between two dates. Again, the date calculator makes it easy.
Time Entry Assistant
Amicus makes it easy to create time entries for all the work you do. So easy that it can even do them for you automatically. But just in case you forget to do one, the handy Time Entry Assistant helps make sure that no billable time gets lost.
Think of the Time Entry Assistant as your personal butler. Whenever you ask for assistance, it is there. It will review everything in Amicus and offer to do time entries for you on anything that might be missing.
The Time Entry Assistant displays a list of all your file activities where no time entry has yet been recorded – email, appointments, completed tasks, documents and phone calls. Set the range of time you want to look at, and it will show them all. Review the list, and with a single click you can create that missing Time Entry.
Here’s an example of how helpful this can be. You probably send emails from your smartphone every day. At the end of the day when you go to do your time sheet, it’s so easy to forget those emails. Most people do. So every day there is at least one billable email that you forget to do a time entry for. The Time Entry Assistant will capture all those for you. And so much more!
It gets even better. Each day, when you first log into Amicus, it tells you about any activities that are missing time entries. Click the reminder and your helpful assistant gives you a full list – and will do a time entry for each.
With Amicus Cloud and the Time Entry Assistant, you are sure to capture more billable time from your work.
Amicus TimeTracker (Beta)
The number one desire that lawyers have had when it comes to practice management software is the ability to do time entries quickly and easily from their phones. TimeTracker is a very powerful tool that does just that!
Amicus TimeTracker (currently in Beta) is optimized for your mobile device. You can see and do your time entries anytime and anywhere and capture your billable time while on the go.
When you log into Amicus Cloud from your phone you will have the option to open up TimeTracker. The “app” is optimized for small screen sizes so you can record your time with just a few taps.
With TimeTracker it is easy to view your entire time sheet and see daily, weekly and monthly totals.
Create new time entries and edit existing unbilled entries in TimeTracker.
The simple interface means you can complete a time entry with just a few touches. TimeTracker is a powerful tool for keeping track of your time while you are on the road.
Once a bill has gone out, you are often so busy on the next matter that you lose track of whether or not the client on the last one has paid. The good news is that Amicus will remind you, so you’ll always know when a payment is overdue.
No one likes chasing clients for payments. But unfortunately, it is a reality that sometimes you have to do it. Amicus makes this easier too.
With the helpful Collection Assistant you can quickly see any files that have not had a payment recorded in a specified date range. You can filter to show just those with an outstanding balance over a certain amount. With a click you can do an email reminder message, or easily re-send the outstanding invoices.
Find anything anywhere in your practice. Just type and go…
Amicus adds tremendous organization to your practice. But no matter how organized you are, there are still times when you’re not sure where to look for what you need. You just want to ask for what you want, and have it presented to you. A bit like doing a Google® search on your practice.
Amicus will do this for you. Anywhere you are, just type in what you want, and almost instantly every related item is presented to you.
A global, full-text search that covers everything from the body of your emails to the contents of your documents. Plus of course all the information on your files, contacts, calendar and more.
Want to take it to the next level? You can fine tune your search, adding refinements like date ranges or item types to help you get exactly what you want.
Freedom to work the way you want to.
