A Secure Client Portal With the Ease of Text

With easy-to-use, conversational style messaging and secure file sharing, Smokeball Communicate is unlike any legal practice management software client portal. Communicate has all the features needed in a law firm client portal (like two-factor authentication with full data encryption) with the ease of use of texting and chatting from your mobile devices. Just have a quick question or need an update on a matter from a partner? Need to send a client an updated, data-sensitive document? Stop emailing co-workers and clients and start to communicate with them!

Capture All Your Activity While Messaging Your Clients

With Communicate and Smokeball’s automatic lawyer time tracking software, all the time spent writing or reviewing messages in Communicate will be captured and moved directly into your legal billing software. Whether working in Smokeball sitting at your desk, or are on the go using the Communicate lawyer app, all of the work you do is automatically captured — without starting or stopping a timer! So when firms need to send wire instructions or a packet of sensitive information and know email isn’t the most secure option, Communicate gives you the ability to send secure information and not lose a billable minute.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“Smokeball Communicate is a real game changer. Communicate is one of the most fluid means to interface with clients in today’s world. Not only can you text interactively with clients and exchange documents within a private, secured platform, Communicate tracks your time as well.”

Put an End to the 6am Client Text

It’s important for law firms to provide the best customer experience for their clients, but it shouldn’t have to mean giving out your cell phone and being available for a “quick update” via text 24/7. Texting clients means sharing your personal number, while also losing the time spent and having communications in disparate places. Using Communicate means that you can direct message conversationally while tracking that time and automatically save all of your activity in one place.
