Top Tip #7 – Setting Katchr Targets

Targeting performance in most law firms tends to be limited to Fees Delivered, Fees Received and Time Chargeable and as a result the majority of Practice Management Systems only provide the facility to store targets for these measures.

Katchr supports a wide range of targets to enable comparison of performance against expectations for a wide variety of measures. The following targets are currently supported:

To set your Targets, click on the cog in the top right hand corner and select Maintenance from the list. tt2-cogPlease note that only those with Administrator rights will see the cog.

Click on Target Maintenance and select the Target Type required from the drop down list.

Values can be entered individually in-line, with full validation:

Bulk updates can also be performed to set the values across different business units, e.g. Firm-wide:

Or for a particular department:

target-maintenance-3

Please note that the Katchr targets are monthly and not yearly and so will carry that figure month to month unless otherwise altered.
