My name is Martin Schweiger, I’m a patent attorney in Singapore and in Munich, and we are a patent and trademark firm. Mainly we serve clients from Germany, Singapore, then also overseas associates; so a pretty diverse firm.
Prior to WiseTime we had our self-created software. That software was a bit cumbersome for attorneys to enter time. The overall value of WiseTime to our business is mainly monetary I would say and also ease of use, of course, and also a tremendous help in improving our processes.
It was my suspicion that we lose a lot of billing time. Within the first few days I just recovered an additional billing time that is good for paying the software for 6 months.
WiseTime is used to also improve our office processes. For 2 or 3 months we measured how much time we spend in the office for incoming mail and I was really surprised. And again, measuring with WiseTime we could save 80% on the work time spent on incoming mail. Only WiseTime made it visible.
One year in, how do I rate it? I mean just the fact that we still have it and we will keep it is enough right? It says enough about the software.
So it became a piece of software that I cannot live without anymore.
