ASKED AND ANSWERED
What is the best way to get Prebills to timekeepers and get the edits back remotely?
Juris can print your Prebills to PDF. We recommend selecting them by timekeeper, client, or matter and printing them in organized batches. You can then email the PDFs and attorneys can use PDF readers to add notes and edits directly in the file.

Can I host Juris in the Cloud?
Yes. Many firms host Juris with a third-party hosting company and access it through Remote Desktop or other terminal server applications. With this configuration, you can access Juris from virtually any machine.
You have many options. You can engage a local IT company. There are national hosting companies such as Uptime Legal Systems and ProCirrus that specialize in hosting firm management software and will configure and support the software for you. Microsoft® Azure® and Amazon AWS are also alternatives, but you need to install and configure the software yourself.

5 Steps to Improve Workflows
Law firms are looking for ways to reduce costs, improve efficiencies, and hold on to their clients by providing better value. Billing is often a struggle for firms and clients alike. By re-evaluating the tools and workflows to track time, bill clients, and collect payments, you can accomplish all three goals.
Follow these five steps from an article authored by Scott Wallingford, Vice President and General Manager of LexisNexis Law Firm Software Solutions, 5 Steps Firms Can Take to Improve Timekeeping and Billing Workflows, to quickly identify where timekeeping and billing workflow problems exist—and how to fix them.
