Get your bills out quickly and easily.
Manage Your Matters
The Tabs3 Billing Matter Manager works the way you do, with simple and quick access to all things billing-related for each matter. Review or update key metrics, such as accounts receivable, work-in-process, and trust balances. Perform common tasks, run reports, and quickly see a list of the recent activity as well as all statements, payments, and write offs.
Track Your Time Easily
Timers help you track time as you go, and then turn billable hours into fees that will appear on the client’s next statement. Upgrade to Platinum and use Tabs3 Connect to enter time, and view your calendar and documents while you are away from the office via smartphone or tablet.
Bill Exactly the Way You Want To
Tabs3 gives you virtually unlimited billing rate flexibility. Use attorneys’ standard rate, bill by timekeeper level (partner, associate, etc.), or create custom rates for any timekeeper for any client. You can also use contingency, split fee, flat fee, retainer, progress, and electronic task based billing.
Tools to Get Your Bills Out Faster
Print statements and email them as PDFs. Email statements one at a time or in batches, and password protect statements for high-profile clients. Print draft statements and track which ones are still under internal review. Accept credit cards and include a credit card remittance form on a bill to get paid faster. Click on any transaction on a bill to edit or update it.
With Tabs3 Billing's new dashboards, you can use graphs to quickly assess Accounts Receivable, Work-in-Process, Cash Receipts, and Billing History historical data. You can also configure user profiles to limit access to this firm-wide information.
“There is nothing else out there as elegant to work with, reliable, compatible with other software and user-friendly with the most friendly, helpful support team. Worth every penny, including the costs of conversion. There are no cons.”

"After using Timeslips for over a decade, we were ready for a change. We never found Timeslips to be intuitive...the program was difficult to figure out and the customer service was non-existent. Tabs3 has been a breath of fresh air. The program is easy to figure out and the customer support has been top notch. I can be confident that when I call for assistance, I will reach a helpful and competent representative. I have nothing but good things to say about Tabs3 and would recommend it without a second thought."
