Law Firms bill for all the document related expenses including faxing and printing costs. Some firms choose to use a flat fee for fax related costs and don’t accurately manage the number of fax / print transactions while others have adopted technologies like EquiTrac for managing their document related costs. Even if you’re using EquiTrac to manage your documents now, you probably didn’t know that you can improve your document fee management by integrating EquiTrac with RightFax, the most popular fax server on the market.
For those of you not using something like EquiTrac, get with the program. While I’m a client of legal services and I don’t like seeing my bills go higher for any reason, I’d be more comforted when my lawyer charges for faxing services that he’d be able to substantiate the costs. The rest of you are leaving money on the table and exposing yourselves to issues with your clients.
If you’re still using a desktop fax machine, you’re not taking advantage of the economies of scale and improved productivity that you’ll enjoy if you use RightFax. For those of you that have taken the leap and use RightFax, we’ve integrated EquiTrac into the mix. Who knows, maybe you’re not billing your clients as much as you could, now with the integration you can get a better handle on the fax related page counts for both sent, received and printed. Are you hearing CHA CHING! Well, there’s no module to purchase from us … but we know how to make it work. The only CHA CHING you’ll hear is your own earnings.
Many of our client law firms outbound fax volumes are in the thousands of pages monthly. Imagine having to manually type in the billing codes for each fax transmission into EquiTrac – that’s crazy! Who wants to do that, never mind the associated manual labour cost involved?
If you don’t already have RightFax, get it and we’ll integrate EquiTrac to automate and control the document volume tracking, billing, client/matter document expenses and you’ll save a bundle of time and make a few bucks along the way. Now you can substantiate your fees with greater accuracy. And remember I did say you don’t have to buy an EquiTrac module from us, just pay for our time to make it work.
