How many mental notes do you take throughout the day to “remember to do something”?

Now, imagine the financial impact on your business, if you executed on even half of those mental notes.

Tali is the power of execution.

We don’t realize how beneficial voice recognition or voice activated systems can be until they become a part of our daily lives.

Remember when you used to have to look at a map for driving directions?

Then we upgraded to websites like MapQuest and Google Maps which printed directions for us. Now… we talk to our phone, our car or our GPS device, and it speaks the directions back to us. Think about how much more efficient life is with this simple application of voice commands in just one area!

Let’s apply that same technology advancement to your billable and non-billable time.

Most attorneys don’t record time, or skip over small records because it’s a pain. Now as we are less directionally frustrated and calmer during our drive can be the same way we feel about our time records. By using one new piece of technology, we can easily capture up to 20% more billable time with less effort than ever before.

For law firms who bill flat fee, this is also your chance to know what your margins are ensure you are charging enough for your services. Even though you don’t bill for your time directly, it is still a vitally important metric that every law firm should track.

Solo and small law firms are known for undercharging for services, because they don’t track the total amount of time put into case. Which leads to overwork, underpayment, and a cycle of cash flow problems. But it need not be that way!

Time tracking shouldn’t feel like it is a burden in your workflow. Which spurred the need for Tali. A first of its kind Alexa-based voice command time tracking tool for lawyers that gives you a simple method for recording items you otherwise would forget to log .

Here are just a few benefits of voice activated time recording:

  1. Capture billable time as you go, no more manual entry!
  2. Record expenses on the fly, and stop losing money on small items.
  3. Increase your profitability by up to 20% by recording lost time records.

Voice commands are so easy to use, you’ll wonder why we took so long to record time by talking! Check out these examples of Tali commands. Wouldn’t they fit well into your day?

  1. Tali, record one hour for the Johnson Divorce Case
  2. Tali, start the timer & Tali, stop the timer
  3. Tali, record a 30 minute phone call with Sarah Smith about her new LLC formation
