VPP Recommends PracticePanther
We are excited to share with you some of the new features that PracticePanther is offering, some thoughts I have about their robust Law Practice Management Software, and a link to the webinar recording.
You may know that VPP is the only firm focused exclusively on providing Fully Dedicated Virtual Assistants to law firms. Since we first became aware of PracticePanther several years ago and saw how intuitive, robust and flexible it was, we’ve been recommending to our law firm clients and prospects where it is appropriate for their type of practice ever since. We recently had a joint webinar with them on “How to Save Time & Focus on Your Law Practice”.
We really appreciate PracticePanther and the great folks running it, but we have no monetary relationship with them and receive nothing for recommending them and vice versa. Also, PracticePanther is not always appropriate for every practice type, of course. Further, there are several good Law Practice Management Software Systems available today and we serve clients no matter what technology they choose to use.
That said, some of those with the smoothest operations and ease in processing cases often seem to be PracticePanther users. That’s one of several reasons we include them on our Gold Standard List of Law Practice Management Software Providers. Here is a link to their home page: https://www.practicepanther.com/
When it comes to technology, our friends in the industry seem to fall into three categories. First, many are considering moving from a more generic application like Teams to a specialized Law Practice Management Software solution. This is common with many solo and smaller firms. A second group has Case Management Software but are not entirely happy. A third group uses a variety of applications patched together, making it harder for them and our Support Staff to work as effectively as they might otherwise.
I would encourage you to take a serious look at PracticePanther. It’s a comprehensive, seamless and intuitive solution that is currently helping tens of thousands of legal professionals manage their complex and fast-moving cases without any delays. One can manage their cases, send out invoices and get paid – all securely and quickly within the PracticePanther built-in e-payments processing feature called PantherPayments.
And recently they released a new, fully native eSignature feature within the PracticePanther platform. With this, you can securely send and receive documents for electronic signatures. This is a huge time saver as you don’t have to pay a third party or keep documents in multiple places. It also helps our Assistants get more work done for you! The PracticePanther team makes it very easy and convenient for you to find everything you need in one place.
Managing your workflow is made much easier for both you and the Assistants helping you with PracticePanther Workflows. This feature can save many hours each week by not having to populate your and their calendars with repetitive tasks and events. You can create and customize as many workflows as you want and even apply tailored formatting to them so when a task is completed, another automatically populates.
So you are likely asking yourself: How do workflows tie into what I need from Virtual Paralegal Pros?
Imagine you have 20 cases a month with the same introductory steps. Let’s say your VPP Assistant books a consultation for you. Now you want to set a task for her the next day to run an asset search on the client in 10 days, collect all of the business information for that case, etc. You can create a workflow for these specific tasks with as much detail as you wish. Once that workflow is created, it’s always there for you. This eliminates tedious tasks like populating a calendar with all these events every time you have a similar case.
There is much more to PracticePanther but I personally think the most exciting capability is their Money Finder feature. I won’t spoil it for you here, so be sure to check out this unique feature by speaking directly to Matt Orlinsky at 305-760-4922 or you can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, if you find routine, non-billable tasks are consuming too much of your personal time and that of your more senior staff; If you have a hard time maintaining a happy, stable team and would like to be rid of hiring and rehiring hassles; If you’d like to be more profitable, achieve sustainability in your practice; and would like to automate all those moving parts with the very best technology, look closely at PracticePanther.
