Press Release: Bellefield Announces iTimeKeep for ADERANT Expert

Bellefield Announces iTimeKeep for ADERANT Expert, providing Time Entry on iPads and iPhones for Attorneys on the Go

 PITTSBURGH – November 30, 2011Bellefield Systems (, a leader in mobile solutions for the legal market, announces the availability of iTimeKeep iPad and iPhone apps for ADERANT Expert.

 Using iTimeKeep ADERANT customers can now enter time directly from their iPad or iPhone via wireless connection and their entries automatically synchronize and register in ADERANT’s accounting system in real time.   When the user adds new clients, matters, tasks, or activity codes in ADERANT, iTimeKeep renders them visible on the iPad or iPhone immediately.  Cloud-based iTimeKeep applies multiple levels of security to ensure that data is transferred safely from one system to the other.

Integration is straightforward. ADERANT clients simply download the free iTimeKeep App from the Apple Store and Bellefield sets up the integration on the database back-end. 

Derek Giles, Principal at Swerdlove, a global consulting firm servicing hundreds of ADERANT customers: “Today’s lawyers increasingly working anytime and everywhere are effectively using iPads and iPhones when out of the office due to their portability and user-friendly interfaces. The integration of iTimeKeep with ADERANT Expert is a welcome addition and will provide attorneys who use iPads and iPhones a distinct advantage in capturing their time more accurately where they are when they want to.

John Kuntz, Principal and Co-Founder of Bellefield Systems reports, “Recent statistics show that lawyers ‘leak’ significant billable time by not capturing time entries immediately, and this can cost them and their firm thousands of dollars per attorney per year.  iTimeKeep changes the game by enabling professionals to enter time instantly from their iPads and iPhones, and now they can send those entries directly to the ADERANT accounting database so the time can be billed promptly.  Our mutual customers and the law firms they work for will benefit greatly from this connection.”

Why not Droid

DROID v iOS --- I have written about this very subject before. We continually monitor smartphone and tablet trends in the legal environment and there is still convincing data to put most of our R&D in the Apple products for two reasons.

1. We are rarely asked if iDocExplorer or iTimeKeep will operate on the Droid. We are geared up and ready to produce a Droid app but there is yet to be a business case to do so.....yet.
2. I am concerned with the way Droid apps are not vetted before release in the Droid app store. Apple has a very strict diligent process. The instance of malware getting into Droid apps has had a dramatic rise of late. Computerworld has a nice piece worth reading....

Firms on the list include megafirms with thousands of lawyers such as Skadden, Baker & McKenzie, Latham & Watkins and Jones Day, relatively smaller firms with very high profits per partner such as Wachtell and Cravath, and successful regional law firms such as Lewis and Roca and my firm, Adams and Reese.
