From Outlook you can save emails to your matter in GhostPractice, it will ask if and what you would like to charge for perusing. When you fire up word from GhostPractice, it will pull through matter details onto your document and before you close it asks if you would like to bill. Saving the document or letter against the matters Audit trail! Version controls are now a possibility.

  • Real time integration with the award winning GhostConvey!
  • Legal Diary with Task Manager and Fee Manager built in (Litigious tariff based or Non Litigious Time Manager).

Improved business performance - an advanced financial management system will enable you to accurately analyze your business in real time, giving you the power to make better informed decisions and react proactively.
