Orion Announces Integration with iTimeKeep iPad and iPhone Apps, Providing Automatically Synchronized Time Entry from iPads and iPhones

ATLANTA & PITTSBURGH, Oct 18, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) –Orion Law Management Systems, Inc. ( orionlaw.com ), a leader in Financial and Practice Management software for law firms, announces a new integration with Bellefield Systems’ iTimeKeep iPad and iPhone Apps.

using iTimeKeep, Orion customers can now enter time directly from their iPad or iPhone via wireless connection and their entries automatically synchronize and register in Orion’s accounting system in real time. also, when the user adds new clients, matters, tasks and activity codes in Orion, iTimeKeep renders them visible on the iPad or iPhone immediately. Cloud-based iTimeKeep applies multiple levels of security to ensure that data is transferred safely from one system to the other.

Setup for the integration is straightforward. Orion clients simply download the free iTimeKeep App from the Apple Store and Orion sets up the integration on the database back-end.

William J. Dunaway, Shareholder at Clark, Partington, Hart, Larry, Bond & Stackhouse, recently installed the Orion/iTimeKeep integration at his firm. Dunaway remarks, “Entering time in Orion via iTimeKeep from my iPad is a huge time saver. Time capture is faster, easier and more accurate and I don’t need a remote login to Orion.”

Orion president, Paul Yelton, comments, “Today’s lawyers and legal staff are increasingly using iPads and iPhones when out of the office, due to their lightweight portability, versatility, convenience and user-friendly interfaces. we are proud to integrate Orion with iTimeKeep, which will give our customers who use iPads and iPhones a distinct advantage in capturing their time more quickly and accurately.”

according to John Kuntz, Principal and Co-Founder of Bellefield Systems, “Recent statistics show that lawyers ‘leak’ significant billable time by not capturing time entries immediately, and this can cost them and their firm thousands of dollars per attorney per year. iTimeKeep changes the game by enabling professionals to enter time instantly from their iPads and iPhones, and now they can send those entries directly to the Orion accounting database so the time can be billed promptly. Our mutual customers and the law firms they work for will benefit greatly from this connection.”

The Orion/iTimeKeep integration module can be purchased from Orion for $1495 plus a recurring $40 per user monthly fee for the required iTimeKeep subscription. Attorneys can fully recover this fee by simply capturing only 10 extra minutes of billable work that may have otherwise gone unrecorded and unbilled.
