Outlook Comparison

PracticeMaster is award-winning practice management software that helps your law firm find case, client and contact information – and find it fast.
If you’re a current user of Tabs3 Billing Software, then you already have a PracticeMaster Basic (a limited version of PracticeMaster) license to try before you buy.

Why should you consider PracticeMaster over Outlook?

The best way to think about the difference between Outlook and practice management software is the old expression, “Jack of all trades, and master of none.” Microsoft designs Outlook to be general enough that absolutely anyone can use it. Most likely your doctor, accountant and the owner of your favorite restaurant all use Outlook. It is the jack of all trades.

Conversely, PracticeMaster focuses on one user – attorneys. You will find every feature of the software designed for law firms. The difference can save you time, make it easier to organize your practice and help you capture more of your billable time.
