No. One of Bodhala’s greatest innovations is to collect and cleanse legal invoices that come directly from law firms. You do not need to be on e-billing to leverage Bodhala’s platform.

Bodhala is cloud-based, SaaS platform accessible through a web browser. There is no software to install.

Bodhala’s atomic data is the ‘LEDES’ – Legal Electronic Data Exchange Standard – file, which since the mid-1990s has been the standard format for all legal invoices.

Bodhala’s Client Success team gathers feedback on the platform from clients, hears of use cases, and works with the product team on how it can incorporate.

Data Questions

We typically recommend to clients that we begin with the current year’s invoices and the prior three full years.

The typical onboarding process can take up to 3 weeks to ensure Bodhala is receiving the correct data, that any supplemental internal fields (e.g., cost center, internal lead) are properly mapped, and for initial QA and standardization.

Bodhala cleans, normalizes and enhances data across many lines: timekeeper identity and classification, AFA identification, and discount application and standardization.

Client Success

Yes, clients have a series of trainings at the outset of the business relationship and can receive additional support when needed or when new users join.
