LawDrill Inquiry & Analytics

Gain self-service access and insight into Aderant Expert data to inform the decision-making process.

Quickly and easily visualize key insights using Aderant Expert data

Law firms are growing increasingly reliant on analytics to support strategic and operational decisions. Attorneys and partners want direct access to data and analytics; they don’t want to have to ask IT or accounting to run reports.

For firms running Aderant Expert software, the LawDrill Inquiry and Analytics suite offers a solution. Comprising three offerings – LawDrill, BillDrill, and ExecDrill, the software provides self-service access and insight into Aderant Expert data.

LawDrill software

Spend less time and fewer resources tracking client information and more time on billable activities.

LawDrill provides attorneys with a means to quickly and easily visualize key insights in a concise summary fashion, unlike any other reporting or financial tool. The software was designed specifically for use by attorneys looking for a quick and reliable tool that most can use with little to no training.

Features include:

  • Self-service access to LawDrill reporting tools so attorneys can quickly and easily visualize key insights about clients, matters, groups that they manage, or themselves as working, billing, or responsible attorneys
  • Highly granular data inquiry, with access dependent upon advanced security rules
  • User-friendly interface that most people can use with little to no training
  • Rich metrics supported by an extensible data warehouse
  • Aggregation functionality that enables better insight into group performance, such as by office or department
  • Data elements delivered as links that users can click to see the lowest level of a particular transaction, in some cases down to the time-entry ticket

BillDrill software

BillDrill is an add-on to LawDrill but also functions as a standalone application. It has been designed as a simple and specialized tool that allows quick access to view and print a PDF version of a posted bill.

Administrative security assignments can limit what bills each user may see. BillDrill maintains advanced security rules while enabling access to the information users need to see. This functionality is particularly useful when a billing attorney is on a call with a client during a collection drive. If a client questions a bill, the attorney can quickly answer.

ExecDrill software

ExecDrill provides firm leadership with the ability to access, analyze, and visualize law firm data through highly consumable reports and dashboards. It allows management-level professionals to slice and dice data from any of the group-level entities such as offices, departments, ranks, and profit centers.

Selection of a row data type yields a high degree of data granularity, down to the employee or client/matter level. This tool is essential for those looking to make mission-critical decisions based on the analytical power only found with ExecDrill.
