The LawTap Actionstep connector facilitates seamless integration between the two systems. The main benefits of the integration are:
Actionstep contacts become available in LawTap.
- This allows lawyers to book appointments on LawTap for their Actionstep contacts, with all the associated benefits and features, for example email and SMS reminders and payment options.
- Current Actionstep clients can book appointments directly on LawTap and lawyers can attract new clients on the LawTap directory.
LawTap appointments can be linked to existing Actionstep Matters.
This allows law firms to automatically generate time-entry Tasks in Actionstep for LawTap appointments. These are used to automatically bill clients in Actionstep.
