Gale Kirsopp of 4700Group works mainly with mid-size law firms, helping them improve their workflow with financial management reporting. Gale understands that if your financial data is properly organized, you’re sitting on information that, if leveraged, could make your law firm more profitable. There is a motivation for doing this work. Profitability leads to growth, improved lifestyle, and stability. It also leads to peace of mind, better sleep, and more time with people you love.
If you hired someone like Gale, she would first analyze your data and recommend back-office workflow improvements for better efficiency. But, here’s the thing: You have to be able to extract that data, then you need someone like Gale to understand the tools to organize the data it so you can mine it for clues to the health of your firm.
QuickBooks® Online Advanced and LeanLaw Pro are two tools in Gale’s toolbox. LeanLaw customizes QuickBooks for law firms, meaning that the data collected by QuickBooks can be sorted out in LeanLaw to identify workflow issues and guide firms into better management of resources. LeanLaw also fills in some data gaps that QuickBooks doesn’t collect. Together, these tools are a powerhouse for mining law firm data.
