file and ProjeCt management
This application provides features that will enable you to
plan, execute, manage and analyse your files and internal
projects or activities from start to finish. It also provides
predefined models or model procedures for reference.
Below the phases, tasks and subtasks can be defined: Shown here e.g. „create specifications“ with
the subtask „edit document“, among others.
management & oPtimisation of resourCes
Staff management is one of the core processes in the
services industry. The solution enables long-term as
well as short-term planning of resources on an activity
or project level and shows, where additional capaci-
ties are needed or where capacities are idle. In addi-
tion, capacities of integrated subcontractors (external
attorneys, experts or appraisers) can be managed ana-
log to the internal staff.
Display of project resources by role
The project performance (hours worked on a case file or internal project) is easy to enter via CATS (Cross Applicati¬on Time Sheet), not
only for internal staff but also for subcontractors and is subsequently released by the partner or attorney in charge. Only then, the file
is charged and the client will be billed. Furthermore, additional features of Employee Self Service, such as the recording of absence
times, order processes including the respective authorization workflows, or the processing of travel costs, are optional.
management of external serviCe Providers
Beside the planning of internal staff, the integration of external service providers and experts is becoming increasingly important.
Controlled adminstrative handling via internal purchase requisitions, and the orders generated from them, guarantee, that the sub-
sequent invoice for the services rendered, can be verified quickly and allocated to the correct account. The complete process is inte-
grated into controlling and can be easily tracked by the user.
aCtivities list, fee settlement and aCCrual
Via the integrated controlling, the
status of each file can be retrieved at
any time. All services rendered or cash
expenditures for every single file can
be analysed in detail. The file can be
invoiced on a time and material ba-
sis, overall, or according to individual
agreements, either upon closure or
PS-work breakdown structure for interim fees. Long-term projects/
files are accrued monthly. This feature
supports correct accrual by month for
SD-customer order work-in-progress, parallel to financial
reporting standards such as HGB or
Cash management, Controlling &
These features support the management of
the complete company or group of compa-
nies. The results can be analysed top-down
from the result of the group to the profit
contribution of each file or each customer. In
addition, costs can be analysed by cost cate-
gory/cost category groups (salaries, leases,
marketing, and so on) or at the cost center
level in terms of plan/actual. It is possible to
drill-down online to the receipt level, which
facilitates swift clarification of questions or
discrepancies. In addition, for company-wide
activities, intercompany settlement can be
supported and an overall cash management
can be installed.
