About WiseTime – formerly Practice Insight

Practice Insight was founded by Thomas Haines, Patent Attorney and software engineer, in Australia in 2010. Prior to joining the intellectual property profession, Tom developed software for some of the world’s leading technology companies, including Apple and Microsoft.

As an IP lawyer, Tom faced the same challenges as his colleagues around the world: the preparation for meetings and conferences was extremely time consuming and cumbersome. He needed a tool that would help him spend more time winning new business and serving his existing clients, and less time extracting massive data sets from websites that needed still further work in order to draw any useful insight. Not to mention filling out timesheets manually when billing clients for his time.

There are many products on the market but none of them matched Tom’s requirement to aggregate information into an easy to use format. Hence, Tom decided to develop his own software tools to meet these challenges.

Although the tools were not originally developed with grand commercial aspirations in mind, on providing an informal demonstration at a conference in 2009, the demand to license the software suite commercially grew rapidly by referral. Since those humble beginnings, the Practice Insight team has grown significantly, but its simple philosophy – of building software that makes peoples’ lives easier – has remained the central pillar of all our engineering efforts.

Today many of the world’s best-known corporations and law firms benefit from Tom’s ideas. Practice Insight’s first products Filing Analytics and Citation Eagle help customers get to grips with Big Data, giving them access to user-friendly software and analysis tools, with which they can extract the data they need in minutes.

In 2018, Filing Analytics and Citation Eagle became part of the CPA Global product family, allowing the Practice Insight team to focus wholly on WiseTime.

In 2019 Practice Insight officially changed their name to WiseTime, to signify our direction forward. You can read the full article here.
