Time capture specialist Rekoop has announced its latest mid-tier signing, underlining the sector’s continued appetite for switching away from their PMS to specialist time recording systems. South-west firm Wollen Michelmore is set to deploy Rekoop to its 60+ fee earners across six offices, integrating with SOS Connect and its telephony platform.
The roll-out will comprise Desktop, the primary time recording interface; Digital Footprint, which monitors activity in the background and helps construct timesheets automatically; Mobile supporting multiple platforms; and Analyse, Rekoop’s own business intelligence layer.
Wollen Michemore’s Practice Director, Clive Meredith, explains the drivers behind the project: “Rekoop is a key part of a comprehensive overhaul of our time recording capability. If we are to effectively leverage our time, we need a far more robust, consistent approach not just to recording it but to understanding it, so we can have more fact-based decision-making on areas such as pricing, WIP management, billing, resourcing and development. Alongside new technology will come training from external consultants, Taylor Mowbray, the two dovetailing to encourage a more willing and wholesale adoption of this new approach. Our view is that if everyone sees the value of more diligent, accurate time capture – particularly where the system picks up 95% of the administrative burden – we will be able to move more quickly to that essential 360° view of firm, team and individual performance.”
Phil Wedgwood, Rekoop’s chief executive, is keen to highlight the growing awareness of dedicated time recording amongst the mid-tier. “Wollen Michelmore is an excellent example of a firm that knows it can secure significant financial and business management improvement by simply getting a better handle on its time. It also appreciates that that process isn’t just about throwing technology at the problem, it’s also about helping fee earners and indeed finance and pricing professionals, through expert guidance, appreciate the benefits to them of this more holistic approach to time. It’s no coincidence that where we have worked hand in hand with Robert Mowbray, we have also seen clients achieve the best return on investment.”
