Automated Billing – Magistrates & Crown Court

The DPS Spitfire legal billing software uses the time record to create the bills for criminal cases. The fee earner records time, this is automatically added to the correct claim form, the claim form automatically posts bills to the accounts, the receipts module then automatically receipts the bills.

So in effect, time is automatically fed to the DPS Spitfire Financial Director accounts package for Work In Progress (WIP) and billing.

When a user emails or creates a letter or attendance note on the system they are automatically prompted for their time. This ensures you don't miss anything, resulting in minimal cost leakage during cases. Time can also be entered manually onto the screen via attendance notes or recorded in real-time as work is being done.

E-mail Integration

Incoming and outgoing emails about criminal cases are automatically filed away to the case. In effect, every email in or out is recorded and charged appropriately to each file, automatically. Also, incoming emails related to a case will give you the option to go straight to that matter file with just the click or tap of a button.

Legal Accounts & Digital Dictation Integration With Criminal Case History

As with all our software, we have fully automated case histories. An electronic case file you can view from anywhere. This is all a part of FD, our practice management system and DPS Mobile our digital dictation system. The electronic case files lend themselves to modern working and give easy access to information. You can then display this information in an instant for any matter and is available for billing.

Efficient by design

Our Central ‘smart’ database for all clients, matters, and contacts means you don't enter data twice or duplicate your efforts. The Smart billing process and fully integrated accounts mean no additional keying in of data and manual posting of the bills is needed. We have a fully automated CDS preparation, submission and billing. Our fast-automated document production means better Fee Earner Secretarial Ratio. Firms using our systems for criminal case management can typically reduce their secretary/fee earner ratios from 1:3 to 1:6 or better.
