I have a regular, full time job and work for an attorney as one of his contract paralegals on a part time basis during my "spare" time. I thought I had found my perfect solution in Bill4Time to track my time by matter and bill my attorney for my completed work. I do not make a lot of money off this job and my office and digital solutions must be extremely cost-effective. When adding my fifth matter under my only client in my account, I found that the free plan I had been using has suddenly become a "legacy" plan and if I wanted to continue to use Bill4Time and add that one extra matter, I will have to cough up $348 dollars for one year. For me, that is a LOT of money. When I compare the cost of the other productivity software I use as a paralegal to the cost of Bill4Time, Bill4Time is simply not a cost effective solution for my time and billing needs. Consider this: I use the standard Office 365 Personal package. For $70.00 a year, I get 7 productivity programs (on my desktop, laptop, and phone), 60 minutes/month of phone calling via Skype, 1TB of cloud storage. If I wanted to expand, I could include Exchange, SharePoint, a web domain to the afore-mentioned products on 5 computers, laptops, and phones, each having its own 1TB cloud storage for $150.00 a year. My suggestion is to have a basic, affordable level for those of us who are not the firms or extreme users of the product. I have an invoice due to my attorney tomorrow. I am in-process of moving all my information on Bill4Time to Time Master. For $20 I have all of the features I need from Bill4Time. And I don't ever have to pay again. Obviously, I would like to stay with your product. But your product is just not affordable.
