The latest release of AbacusLaw includes updates that are sure to delight legal customers—especially firms who rely on document automation as a part of their workflow. Version 23.31 of AbacusLaw includes integration with HotDocs, allowing firms to automatically assemble error-free documents using the client, calendar and case information already in the AbacusLaw system.
Here’s a quick look at the exciting new features this version has to offer:
AbacusLaw and HotDocs integration
Users of AbacusLaw with HotDocs now have the ability to complete entire documents with one click or start with the information already in AbacusLaw and enter more information using an interactive HotDocs interview. Firms using AbacusLaw with HotDocs have reported significant time savings, increased accuracy and reduction of costly, embarrassing and potentially license-threatening malpractice claims.

Firms using Version 23.31 will have access to Abacus Payment Exchange (APX) PayNow, which allows users of AbacusLaw to automatically send invoices directly to a client’s inbox and have that bill paid, via credit card, through a secure online portal. AbacusLaw Accounting is immediately notified of the payment, removing friction and time-consuming work from the collection process. Single and mass billings are supported, greatly enhancing the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of billing activities.
