Irish company eXpd8 is set to revolutionise the professional services software sector with the introduction of an innovative “pay-as-you-use” pricing package.
Designed primarily to meet the needs of small to medium sized legal firms, eXpd8 is also ideal for many other types of professional services business, from accountants to architects.
It is an exceptionally easy to use time management and billing facility which is the ultimate answer to the challenge of managing complex communications in a simple and seamless way. It records and stores every single point of communication with clients, from post, emails, faxes and telephone calls to voice files, photographs, maps and diary appointments – creating a genuinely “paper-less” office environment.
eXpd8 dramatically enhances staff efficiency by storing every piece of client-related information in a central location and ensuring it is immediately available to all authorised users precisely when and where they need it – at their desk, on the road, at a client meeting or even in a Courtroom. It also optimises billing efficiency by recording every second of chargeable time and all relevant fees as they are incurred and integrating them into a real time billing system.
Now this powerful business tool will literally pay for itself through an innovative pay-as-you-use package. eXpd8’s CEO Declan Branagan explains that the cost is just €1 per day per user.
“This is a tiny fraction of the upfront and continuing costs associated with more cumbersome and less powerful competitors,” he says. eXpd8 software is fully integrated with Microsoft applications, with which most users are completely familiar, and can be downloaded and trialled for up to 30 days. Full technical support and updates are also provided.
Various types of “pay-as-you-use” software have been available for some time now, but never before in the SME professional services sector.
“It means that clients will immediately reap the benefits without large upfront cash outlays. Because eXpd8 is also both extremely powerful and exceptionally intuitive to use, it really does make it the unquestionable solution of choice,” Branagan says.
“At times like these, for most firms increased efficiency is the only practical way to enhance and protect revenues. Existing clients tell us that in this environment eXpd8 is not a 'nice to have' but an essential tool delivering genuine competitive advantage.”
