Tracking Apps for Attorneys
Recently, the New York Times published this interesting article about expense splitting apps. These tools are popular with Millennials who are often in a position of going Dutch, whether for dinner, a taxi ride, or utility bills. It got me thinking about expense tracking apps for attorneys, particularly solos and small firms. How do you track expenses on the go? Here are some experts discussing the best apps and software for tracking business expenses:
- The Best Android and iOS Apps for Managing Receipts reviews four low cost or free options for ending the mess of paper receipts.
- 5 Mileage Tracking Apps for the Modern Attorney lists five apps that make recording mileage, tolls, gas, and other travel expenses easier.
- The Best Expense Tracking Software of 2017 is a detailed look at ten software packages appropriate for small to midsize businesses.
