It’s Friday the 13th and, true to the superstition surrounding the date, nothing is going right today. You keep working but are amassing a list of things gone wrong.
You ran this month’s bills, finalized, and ran the Update Statements program a couple of weeks ago. Your boss wants to see productivity figures, but when you run Productivity reports, you realize you forgot to advance the current reporting month! None of the most recent figures are correct.
The temporary bookkeeper finalized last month’s reconciliation while you were away, but this month things don’t look right. You look a little closer and find a big mistake – the bookkeeper finalized without the reconciliation balancing! If you restore your data, you’ll lose a month’s worth of data. You’ll have to add manual journal entries to work around the temp’s errors.
An attorney tells you to go ahead and split the fees and costs for a client. You run the utility, and ten minutes later he recants – the client just called to add an additional party to the split. This party needs to be added to the current bill, but the split’s already been made.
You just found out that your firm is getting audited, and you need financial information for the last several years. While opening each archived GLS Client to print out the necessary reports, you discover that there are a couple of years missing. This was before your time, but you’ll still need to talk to the boss and do the extra work.
You wake up, it’s still dark out, and your heart’s pounding. You look at the clock and it’s one in the morning. After some deep breaths, you lie down and close your eyes, falling back asleep almost effortlessly because you know you’re on the current version of Tabs3 and PracticeMaster, and you have every GLS Client archived back to inception, so these horror stories can’t happen to your firm. Besides, there isn’t even a Friday the 13th in October this year.

We are excited to announce a new integration through ProPay, a TSYS company. Here are some of the benefits you get with ProPay:
Accepting credit cards can help increase revenue because they are so convenient for your clients. You may find clients willing to pay with a credit card on their way out of your office, and you will certainly receive credit card payments over the phone. The easier it is to pay, the faster you get paid, the fewer collection calls you need to make, the easier it is to collect on outstanding invoices, and the number of write offs you will have to make will be reduced.
If you are interested in accepting credit cards, you can learn more at Tabs3.com/ProPay. To process payments through ProPay, you must be on Version 18 of Tabs3 software.
Did you know the majority of Americans used a credit card in the past month? Americans rely on their credit cards more and more to pay for things like clothes, medical procedures, and now, legal services.
Here are the top three reasons law firms decide to accept credit cards:
Remember: The easier it is to pay, the faster you get paid. The faster you get paid, the fewer collection calls you need to make, and the fewer write offs you need to process.
If you accept credit cards, there is no better way than with Tabs3. When a credit card payment is entered into Tabs3, it is automatically processed and the funds are deposited into your existing bank account. You do not need to change your existing banking relationships to process credit cards. If you use Tabs3 Trust Accounting Software, you can have trust account payments deposited into a separate account from where processing fees are deducted. This integration takes the guesswork out of bank account reconciliation and helps you comply with many state bars’ rules regarding commingling funds.
With the release of Version 18, we partnered with ProPay, a TSYS company, to provide you with credit card processing that is better than ever.
ProPay also has the ability to add future enhancements and newer technology to Tabs3 software, such as chip card readers. If you’re interested in accepting credit cards, you can sign up in minutes at Tabs3.com/ProPay. If you have any questions regarding processing credit cards in Tabs3, contact your local reseller and consultant, or contact Technical Support at (402) 419-2210.
