Feature Release: Identify and Bill WIP in a few seconds

Hoowla feature release helps identify and bill WIP in seconds.

We are delighted to unveil a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to enhancing your experience with Hoowla’s Case Management Software. It is with great pleasure that we introduce the Work In Progress (WIP) dashboard, a feature designed to streamline the operations of fee earners and firm directors. This addition empowers to our system allows users to efficiently monitor outstanding billable items, thereby improving financial management and operational transparency.

The WIP dashboard offers a comprehensive array of data, including case reference numbers, matter details, assigned fee earners, account balances within both the office and client accounts, and the date of the most recent invoice. This comprehensive overview simplifies the tracking of ongoing work, granting you deeper insights into the financial health of your legal practice.

A notable advantage of this feature is its capability to facilitate on-the-fly invoice generation directly from the WIP dashboard. This eliminates the need to navigate away from your current workspace, leading to significant time and cost savings, ultimately enhancing your overall operational efficiency.

This feature comes at the request of our client Robert Dudden, Director of Dudden Law in Cardiff, who expressed his gratitude for this development. According to Mr. Dudden,

“I have to say a big thank you for the update to the dashboard! This is a huge help to us. We have been able to quickly identify which files have been allocated correctly or incorrectly, whether the WIP should have been recorded, and if not, easily deleted, estimating billing for the month in seconds. Invoicing should be a breeze and avoids the possibility of missing a file for invoicing.”

At Hoowla, we deeply value the feedback from our clients, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to enhancing our platform. We do not charge for system improvements or releases because we believe in the symbiotic relationship between our growth and the satisfaction of our users. Like Mr. Dudden, your feedback propels us forward, aligning our ethos with our users at the forefront.

We firmly believe that technology plays an important role in fostering confidence within the legal industry, enabling the efficient handling of multiple cases while ensuring compliance. An intuitive system empowers your team members to maintain consistent motivation levels, nurturing both work quality and overall mental well-being. This seamless experience accelerates your firm’s growth trajectory and contributes to increased revenue.

Adam Curtis, Managing Director of Hoowla says:

“For a while, we have had the traditional WIP reports in Hoowla’s report area, but after speaking with Robert it became clear a more interactive dashboard approach would save him and his team lots of time each day. If you spend more than a few seconds identifying cases with outstanding WIP to bill and generating the bills, then we invite you to see how it is done in Hoowla.”
