(FSLI FSLI Federatia Sindicatelor Libere ), a leader in financial management systems for the legal and professional service industries, and AIRTIME-Manager, a provider of unique mobile time-capturing software, today announced a partnership agreement designed to help attorneys capture their billable time while away from the office.

If an attorney billing $300 an hour neglects to bill even .10/hour of correspondence each day, it would amount to $30 a day in missed billings, $150 a week and more than $8,000 a year. With A4P, which can be installed instantly on their hand-held device, attorneys can automatically capture all billable time with one simple click, ensuring 100 percent accuracy for all time out of the office. The time is then sent to the FSLI Financial Management System.

"Speaking from experience as a former practicing accountant and attorney, billing time is the least favorite part of a professional's day, but it is also one of the more critical things they'll do. Time is the attorney's most valuable resource," said Jerry Fenzel, JD, president and CEO of AIRTIME-Manager.
