The Accounting Integration Tool is a middleware solution that allows public sector agencies to leverage the full functionality of ProLaw’s billing and accounting system while addressing the unique requirements of public sector law firms’ complex division/program code based billing and budget tracking. AIT allows agencies to integrate and exchange data between enterprise HR or Accounting systems and ProLaw to accurately track case related hard costs, expert fees, soft costs and time entries while providing an easy to use interface for monthly billing, invoice generation and statement grouping.
AIT consists of four main modules:
Validation – ensures that all transactions through the date entered, to ensure all those criteria are met. Billing cannot be run until all transactions are valid. This module displays invalid transactions and explains why they failed. You can then copy them to the clipboard, and use the ProLaw interface to make necessary fixes.
Billing – performs bulk/mass billing on WIP transactions. The Billing module processes WIP transactions through the “Statement Date” and bills them by creating billing statements and updating their ProLaw transaction statuses to “Billed” with statement generation and roll-up specific to client specifications.
Adjustments – used to reverse billed transactions that were incorrectly billed, and re-enter them in the correct “place” using the ProLaw interface. Transactions can be transferred between matters, clients, or projects based on entered criteria.
Agency Closing – Allows mass billing of all transactions for a specific agency or project that may be closing or consolidated with another agency.
