With the CCH iFirm Practice Manager application, your accounting practice will benefit from efficiency and visibility like never before.
Enhanced visibility and efficiency
Jobs & Billing is a practice management system that runs in real time. That means you know what’s going on and can take care of your capacity planning with finely tuned efficiency. Bottlenecks are easily identified and their content reallocated. Jobs are spread evenly across your resource base and more intelligent automation makes life easier for everyone.
Super-fast job allocation
Resource allocation and job orders are handled with just a few mouse clicks. Smart workflow automation and seamless integration take care of all the administration in recurring jobs, allocating the relevant resources to ensure that time is saved and work is not forgotten. And when the time comes, you have an invoicing program in place to handle billing quickly.
Pure simplicity in pricing work
From specific job fees, to a model that automates processes across your whole firm, Jobs & Billing handles pricing work with total simplicity. Once your model is set up, you have ultimate flexibility and convenience at every stage of the invoicing process – and when it comes to accounts receivable, you’ll never miss a beat.
Impressively stocked tool kit
With Jobs & Billing, everything is right where you would intuitively expect it to be – at your fingertips. It’s a practice management solution like no other. Whatever screen you’re working on, you’ll see all the tools you need to succeed. You can utilize existing workpapers and procedures, or add your own to any job. And you can manage all content via the Intranet.
100% transparency and accountability
Automated e-mails across all aspects of your operation make sure everyone is informed and fully accountable for their work. Transparency is customary and encouraged – so it’s really easy to see what’s going on at every stage, tracking both group and individual efficiency.
Reporting that really drills down
Jobs & Billing generates highly valuable reports on cash flow, revenue, workflow, profitability, employees, billing, receivables workflow and more. A customizable dashboard and a smart range of search filters tell you everything you need to know across the whole firm at a glance, so any issues can be dealt with as they occur.
Elevate your reporting capabilities with data visualization
CCH iFirm® Analytics is a powerful add-on that pulls from your firm’s data to provide visualizations for current WIP, aged accounts receivable, clients and jobs, realization, and other key metrics. Easily identify patterns and extract valuable insights that will help drive informed and proactive firm management.
Reduce time spent on accounts receivable management
With integrated ePay functionality, your clients can pay their invoices electronically, leading to faster payment processing times. You spend less time following up on outstanding invoices or verifying payment details and gain back valuable time to focus on other aspects of your business.
Add a Capacity Planning module to remove bottlenecks and more
Available for an additional cost, this new breakthrough technology automatically adjusts real-time capacity as timesheets are entered, jobs allocated and staff records updated. You know exactly what staff resource is required each and every month of the year. And you will increase staff satisfaction with clear expectations of jobs – when they’re required to be completed – and remove capacity bottlenecks. With recurring jobs, you can even view what future years look like for jobs, revenue and resourcing.
