Orion Announces New AR Collection Manager Module at LegalTech New York ‘12

New Software Dramatically Increases Cash Flow and Decreases Collection Time and Cost

ATLANTA, GA – January 25, 2012Orion Law Management Systems, Inc. (www.orionlaw.com), a leader in Financial and Practice Management software for law firms, will announce their new AR Collection Manager Module next week at LegalTech New York 12. The new Module communicates and records collection activities; effectively managing accounts receivable (AR) and providing accurate, real-time information about invoice status. Live webinar demonstrations of the Orion AR Collection Manager are available tomorrow and next Friday – see below for details.

Orion’s AR Collection Manager dramatically streamlines collection efforts by providing both the billing attorney and accounting staff or collection manager an instant, updated snapshot of open invoices, steps taken to collect on those invoices, and instructions pertaining to “doubtful” debtors.

Law firms can improve their bottom-line by initiating, tracking and viewing collection efforts such as emails, notes about phone calls or follow-up reminders. All actions are then linked to the invoice itself for complete collections management.

Orion’s AR Collection Manager’s Highlights Include:

  • Summary of statistical AR information in an invoice view.

  • Customized Email Template Generator® allows the creation of custom collection email templates in Microsoft Outlook, tailored for the collections process.

  • Generation of collections reports and the ability to forward collections instructions to management for their review.

  • Identification of collection contacts and “doubtful” invoices.

  • The prevention of opening new matters for clients in collection.

Allison Renaud, Director of Finance at Dickinson Mackaman, Tyler & Hagen, P.C., commented, “We recently installed Orion’s AR Collection Manager at our firm and it has already saved time. Our entire collection ledger is now maintained and updated electronically, allowing our firm to view collections status in real-time. We especially like that we can generate collections notices in email or letter format, and that we can efficiently identify and apply write-offs in the system. Orion’s system is a tremendous timesaver that keeps excellent track of what actions have been taken on collection, for the benefit of everyone at the firm.”

Orion President Paul Yelton said, “Orion is proud to announce the AR Collection Manager Module at LegalTech New York, paving the way for better collection with a user-friendly interface and accurate, real-time information. Customers such as Dickinson Mackaman will definitely benefit from the new technology.”
