[Free Webinar] What’s New in Smokeball Billing

//[Free Webinar] What’s New in Smokeball Billing

On February 13, 2019 we kicked off our 2019 webinar series. We started the year off with what is new in Smokeball Billing. Our first webinar for the year was hosted by the Client Success Team’s trainer Jessica Robinson, Esq., who was joined by our Billing Product Manager, Mary Ellen Kelleher.

Our webinar started with Mary Ellen defining the term “agile development.” To put it simply, the development of our product keeps our customers in mind when releasing new features. As soon as we feel there is a feature that will make your Billing life easier, we want to get it out to you. As Mary Ellen says, “You Spoke; We Listened.”

The webinar covered small enhancements to Smokeball Billing, updates to the Automatic Time & Activity Tracking feature, and our new LEDES/UTBMS Billing feature. All these features and enhancements have been requested by you, our clients.

Some of the features you can expect to be highlighted during the webinar include: the ability to invoice closed matters, option to remove prior balances on new invoices, and other relatively small but important enhancements. Our Automatic Time & Activity Tracking feature now has the ability to separate out emails by the subject line, a highly requested feature. Finally you can expect to see an in depth review of our new LEDES/UTBMS feature.

We also gave you a peek into what we are working on next!  Remember, our Smokeball Webinars are a great way to see Smokeball in action and get a look at what’s coming soon!
