A Melbourne-based law firm is contemplating the introduction of automated time billing software - the same software recently adopted by Corrs Chambers Westgarth.

Russell Kennedy announced this week that it has adopted new integration software to streamline its internal processes, including matter intake and new personnel intake, and said it is also contemplating the implementation of automated time billing down the track.

"[Time Builder] is something that we're considering," said Russell Kennedy's IT manager Dinesh Rajalingam. "We thought we would address our most immediate need [first] and that was for a workflow replacement program. So we went ahead and did all our research and concentrated our efforts on proofing or vetting this product to see that it can help us, and our experience has been good. Once we've bedded down this process, we'll look at things like Time Builder."

Rajalingam said Russell Kennedy will be monitoring the success of other firms currently using time capture software, such as Corrs Chambers Westgarth, before choosing to adopt it.

Developed by IntApp, the new Integration Builder software currently being implemented by Russell Kennedy - the first Australian firm to use such software - will assist the firm with data management.

"We see automating data management as a critical component of workflow - forms and dashboards can coordinate human input and response, but real-time information movement among business applications is key to true process automation," said Russell Kennedy's IT manager Dinesh Rajalingam.

According to IntApp, Integration Builder provides a simple way for law firms to connect, manage and automate their business applications and processes, and enables firms to address challenges such as new matter intake, new user provisioning and distribution list management.

"We're delighted to add Russell Kennedy to the expanding list of law firms using IntApp products to enhance new business intake, lateral hire on-boarding and other business processes," said the head of IntApp's Integration Practice Group Neal Vora.
