ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE) – Today Orion Law Management Systems, Inc. released Orion 5.2, a major update to its finance / practice management software that includes hundreds of enhancements. The main highlights of the 5.2 version include the ethical wall management for customers and matters to ensure data protection, the newly expanded W-9 management, BillBlast® integration, iOrion® updates for mobile access and Orion ePay ™ , a seamless and secure online payment system operated by LawPay. Orion ePay was announced in January but has since been updated for better performance.
Ethical wall management for clients and affairs
Ethical walls protect sensitive data from unauthorized users. Orion clients can now set up Ethical Walls to restrict access to sensitive Client / Matter data. Users can be prevented from viewing or searching for information about a confidential customer or matter.
Orion’s new W-9 management solution improves a law firm’s compliance with IRS 1099 requirements. When lawyers request payment of a check for a new vendor, they can attach a W-9 from the Orion desktop or from the iOrion mobile app when working remotely. If the W-9 is missing or out of date, Orion will automatically request an updated version from the manufacturer.
Aderant’s BillBlast is now integrated into Orion 5.2 and optimizes eBilling transmission for Orion customers, which speeds up the process of payment. Law firms can take advantage of the Orion / BillBlast integration to increase their productivity and profitability. BillBlast also allows users to extract and upload images for reimbursement requests and supplier invoices from the Orion database.
iOrion 5.2 Mobile Tool Updates
iOrion is a complete mobile financial management app that lawyers can use to access data from any Apple / iOS® or Google Android® device. Lawyers and employees can easily enter time and carry out important tasks with iOrion. The updated iOrion 5.2 now adds test requirement approvals, unified matter lookups and views, and an updated payment calendar, including payments from project attorneys performing shared tasks.
Orion ePay Powered by LawPay
Many law firms and their clients are still working virtually due to the ongoing COVID pandemic. Hence, the flexibility and convenience of Orion ePay’s LawPay integration is critical. Payments online mean that law firms using Orion ePay also reduce pickup time, improving cash flow and increasing profitability. Also, Orion and LawPay are creating an online payments page with the law firm’s logo on them, which reassures clients and increases the firm’s brand loyalty with every payment.
“We are excited to announce the release of Orion 5.2, which enhances the Orion experience with many important updates and useful features,” noted Orion President Paul Yelton. “With version 5.2, customers can also set up ethical walls to restrict access to protect confidential customer / factual information. New W-9 administration and payment calendar updates make Orion even more useful, and improvements to iOrion help customers who work remotely. With Orion ePay, powered by LawPay, businesses can reduce their pickup times, increase cash flow, while providing a more efficient way to accept payments. ”
