|Centurion Consulting Group has
developed a number of law firm software products to assist attorneys in managing their
firms efficiently and cost-effectively.
Bonus Calculation Software
Each year partners calculate bonuses for their Associates. Many firms simply take a
percentage of each associate's salary or one or two weeks salary and earmark that
amount as the associate bonus. Associate who work harder than others and put more effort
into their jobs are disappointed that theyve received the same percentage as
An increasing number of firms are choosing another route. They pay a competitive salary as
a fixed amount and then distribute the firms profits as variable amount based on a
formula for each type of job. Another type of bonus distribution is based on an
associate's contribution to profit. This type of system works particularly well with law,
accounting and other firms where associates (other than equity members or partners) bill
their time and/or bring in business. Firms pay a competitive fixed salary or slightly less
and then reward associates with a variable bonus based on several factors. These factors
could include the amount of hours billed over a minimum amount, the expenses incurred by
the associate or the amount of new business generated by the associate from new or current
The Bonus law firm software model helps partners calculate a fair amount based on
the associates contributions to profit. When firms tie their associates
bonuses to performance and bottom-line results, they find that employees treat their
clients as if they were their own and the firm was theirs. At firms where service is
outstanding, employees realize that their bonuses ride on the success of the firm and work
hard to improve income and limit expenses. A article looks at
how the Associates' Calculation Bonus
software can increase revenues.

presented in very fast growth, is usually more people. Firms easily become bloated with

The highest paid employees should have the highest job performance. There will always be a
degree of variability in any organization. Our Pay-for-Performance law firm software
realigns compensation with performance objectives. Pay-for-Performance
provides the reviewer with several attributes to evaluate associates. Each attribute is
weighted according to the job description and performance goals.
The optimal distribution of compensation is calculated.
The complication in Pay-forPerformance applications is the redistribution of
compensation. What if your policies are to never take money away from an employee holding
the same pay? Adjustments may recommend a pay reduction. The Pay-for-Performance software
allows the user to add constraints such as minimum increases, maximum increases and no pay
reductions. With each constraint, there will be more mismatching in a true
Pay-for-Performance relationship. This law firm software reduces the error to a minimum
given the limitations stipulated.
