PCLaw v14 Streamlines Billing with the Invoice Email Queue
- Cindy Melfa

In today's world, most clients expect to receive communication and billing by e-mail, and more and more firms 

are adopting e-mailing invoices to save money. Emailed invoices shorten the time it takes deliver invoices to clients. This will translate into getting paid more quickly.


For the last few years, PCLaw could accomplish e-mailing invoices, but it always missed the mark when law firms wanted to e-mail more than one at a time. If most clients wanted their invoice e-mailed and the firm had several hundred invoices a month, e-mailing one at a time crippled an efficient billing process. As a workaround, firms would mass bill, save their invoices to PDF, and then e-mail them after-the-fact. This is what we did here at Affinity.

PCLaw Tip - Billing Direct to PDF
- Cindy Melfa


Despite efforts at paper reduction in law firms, billing is one area that still seems to generate a lot of paper. But it doesn't need to be that way.

If you are creating bills in PCLaw, hopefully you know by now that you can create a PDF version of that bill during the billing process.  


Read this month's feature article to learn how to use PCLaw to generate bills directly to PDF and skip the wasteful printing process.
