This year’s ILTA annual conference saw the launch of Tikit’s Carpe Diem TimeFinder version 1.1
Carpe Diem TimeFinder version 1, launched in early 2012, provided attorneys the ability to monitor, track, and convert their journal of electronic activities into time entries, thereby extending, and in some cases replacing, the time capture activities of a firm.
The initial sources of activities tracked consisted of e-mail and messaging systems, documents management systems, and call/telephony systems, all accessed server side with no desktop footprint thereby providing an easy, browser-based entry point and low cost of ownership for firms.
Version 1.1 extends the activity tracking opportunity further with the introduction of TimeFinder’s ‘Desktop Monitor’, an agent that can monitor any application (even custom-developed applications) and deliver a more granular and accurate journal activity to the user’s TimeFinder desktop.
“This optional add on was an obvious next step in Tikit’s TimeFinder product strategy as some firms felt the accuracy and additional sources of tracking available at the desktop (like web browsing) provide the potential to recover even more lost or missing time,” says Peter Zver, product manager for Tikit’s timekeeping product lines. “The ‘Desktop Monitor’ also introduces ‘Intelligent Thresholds’, which are essentially a series of settings that provide users with the ability to calibrate the level of granularity and activity volumes prior to sending to the TimeFinder Desktop interface. This intelligence is vitally important in allowing attorneys to accurately and quickly identify missed or associated time entries.”
Carpe Diem TimeFinder now provides the firm with a variety of options in the implementation of passive time capture, recognising the firm’s current state of timekeeping, technology, and overall business culture and further extending the Carpe Diem, industry leading, family of time recording products.
