What do you like best?

I love how easy Tabs was to learn and how easy it is to use. I had very minimal training on it and I was up and running within a day. Recently they updated the program and now it's even better!! You can add certain accounts to your favourites and open multiple windows at once which is AWESOME! And being able to Tab over and not use your mouse saves so much time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't really like how you have to have permissions to delete something, but that's just a security feature that I believe my company sets and not the software itself. If I use the wrong account number or something I have to have an administrator to delete it and fix. But if it's only a change in the description, it's easy to change myself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I HIGHLY recommend tabs. It's easy to learn and easy to use! and prints out GREAT detailed reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tabs solves the problem of entering multiple time entries a day in as little time as possible so that billing does not consume my day and I have more hours to bill clients instead. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

PracticeMaster is perfect because it keeps every bit of important information for our practice in one easily accessible spot. The best part is how PracticeMaster automatically links every email we send with one of our client numbers. We can then easily reference sent emails on the client account, including emails sent by other paralegals or attorneys. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes, it crashes unexpectedly, but the data doesn't get lost. The crashing may be an issue on our network, but at this point we cannot determine the source of issue. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely use this product. It is top of the line for law practice management. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to connect each member of our practice digitally with PracticeMaster. We record phone call notes, record requests, client information, and even emails with this software. This makes any action much easier because it can be made by any member of the firm. By having all of the information accessible in one location, I could be on the phone about something case related and be able to refer to what one of the other paralegals did a month ago on the same case. Of course this all relies on users to carry out, but this software is simply incredible for unifying records and connecting employees. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We really liked Tabs3 when we used it. It enables you to add an amazing amount of users -- so it's good for medium to large firms -- and enter a huge selection of various billing scenarios and charges. Drop-downs are very convenient and their tech support is fantastic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Transferring files from Tabs3 remote to the master administrator. It would be better if it were cloud-based. Also, the program is complicated, so some users may have difficulty. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Tabs3 has excellent trust accounting and saved us money because we didn't have to use an accountant any more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Tabs3 is simple and easy to use. The company I work for uses it to keep track of our hours and to bill our clients. It does not take long to enter in the information needed and we each have our own login so it’s very simple to keep track on each of our hours. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Tabs3 isn’t the most up to date service. The design looks outdated and can use some remodeling. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I just started using this at my new job as a paralegal where I am having to keep track of my time for the first time. This software so far, while having a ton of features I haven’t even touched, is very intuitive as far as the basics go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is intimidating at first look because of there are a lot of tabs and options that are not very clearly labeled. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Compared to the paper and pencil timekeeping attorneys used at my previous job, being able to keep track with just one keystroke rather than watching the clock is so much more accurate and easy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What isn't easy to figure out is just a phone call away. I like the technical support people I have had to contact. I like that when I call, I leave the conversation with a satisfactory result. I like that all the modules integrate so information doesn't need to be repeated. I like being able easily change formats of statements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Not being able to create my own reusable reports. Don't know how to configure the quires. I don't like the pricing of the practice master piece for a company our size.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We do not use this software for timekeeping purposes so I cannot address that, but we do use it for billing. It is great for having all the AP/AR, Trust, & GL all in one piece. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The A/P module is very easy to use in our line of business (Law firm). The A/P reports can easily be ran, analyzed. The Trust Account Module is pretty straight forward and accurate. Easy to run reports. G/L and Tabs are very easy to use as well. If you are on cash basis, the write off/generate statements features are very easy to use. The integration on the G/L is pretty straight forward. As long as you have the right accounts Debits and Credits the system works good. P/L, B/S , T/B reports look good, they are very friendly user. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The A/P module should be more accurate when you the same invoice twice. If the date is different, then the entire invoice will be paid again. is. (invoice #1 dated jan 5th, and then invoice #1 dated February 5th - the system will not recognize it as duplicate invoice, instead it will process it and pay it - everything needs to be exactly the same in order for the system to recongize it as a duplicate) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
