I love TABS3; I have used TABS for the last 20+ years at the office from which I retired. It is very user friendly!

It offers so many features that we dont even use all of them!

The Good…

Very easy to use

The Bad…

A little pricey if you dont end up utilizing all of its features…

It’s designed for lawyers so it accommodates most legal billing styles. You can bill by a standard hourly rate and customize it for each partner or associate. You can also use contingencies, split fees, flat fees, tasks based, and retainer billing methods.

Through the dashboard, you can run reports showing your top clients, your work in progress so you can have an idea of unbilled work.

Tabs3 defines it pricing on whether you have 6 or more users or 5 or fewer users. Those with 6 or more need a custom quote but if you have fewer than 5 users can use their price calculator to determine cost which is between $72/month to a few thousand depending on the features and number of users wanted on the software. They do have a free trial.

The Good…

If you know you’ll be using Windows desktops for the foreseeable future and don’t need a full-featured mobile app, it’s a good choice. It will give you an excellent overview of your firm’s performance.

The Bad…

The level of customization needed is complicated and will come at a high cost because you’ll likely need to hire a consultant for customization and data migration, meaning it’s not the best choice for solo lawyers.
