PITTSBURGH, PA August 7, 2017 – Bellefield Systems, LLC, the leader in mobile and anywhere time entry solutions for firms of all sizes, unveiled a first-of-its-kind automated time entry policy management solution, iTimeKeep-Thrive, this morning.
“Creating a time entry policy is only half the battle,” according to Gabriela Isturiz, President and Co-Founder of Bellefield Systems. “Ensuring the policy is accessible and easy to monitor is just as important. With this new tool, firms can develop their policy, quickly identify trends, and interact with timekeepers to drive positive habits.”
iTimeKeep-Thrive is based on Bellefield’s trademarked algorithm, which identifies the compliance or non-compliance of individual attorneys and the firm as a whole. With a simple but informative dashboard, firm executives can see month by month how the firm is performing in compliance with the firm’s time entry policy.
Said Isturiz, “We’re changing the game with this new solution. iTimeKeep-Thrive helps law firms to implement, enforce, and measure their time entry policy in a reliable and consistent manner without relying on the subjectivity of human nature.”
According to Bellefield’s 2016 survey, 42% of firms with a time entry policy don’t enforce the policy. This is oftentimes due to the manual and subjective nature of enforcement. Isturiz further stated, “With iTimeKeep-Thrive, firm management has a dashboard where they can see how the firm and individuals are performing when it comes to compliance with the firm’s time entry policy, which gives them immediate insight into metrics that can directly impact the firm’s bottom line.”
