The idea started 3 years ago when Nick Schils was working as a software consultant and noticed that a lot of law firms were dealing with issues concerning time tracking. More often than not, lawyers reconstructed their timesheet based on their calendar and activities performed by phone and email. As a result, billable activities leaked away because they simply were forgotten. Immediately the thought came to mind that there must be a better way. That’s when development started on an intelligent solution, where the right activities are already matched with the corresponding matter.

In working with multiple law firms it was clear that there are two key points in time tracking. One is to make it as easy as possible to fill out timesheets and the second point is the actual insights that are created in time spent. TIQ works with 5 fee earners up to 150 and projects with bigger and international firms are in progress.

Recently, a new version of the software was launched. New added features such as a narrative builder, manual timer and entry and an intuitive interface supplement the existing time capture module even further. Because of working with bigger law firms, the roadmap of development is mainly focused on security and compliance.

Next to that TIQ will continue to expand its alliances with different partners. This follows the best-of-breed philosophy and implementations will become faster and more integrated than before. Especially practice and document management systems vendors are excellent partners to collaborate and grow.

In conclusion, the company started out as a generic time tracking tool for multiple industries. Shortly after the software was launched it was fully oriented on law firms. The company learned a lot about the needs of their users and TIQ is well on its way to become an international player with great potential.
