“Smart” products helping lawyers capture even more time only add to hourly rate feeding frenzy

I got an email today that is proof that mass emailers don’t care a bit about who receives the emails.  The mass email, on behalf of Smart WebParts, offered this enticement:

Smart Time moves timekeeping into a new era, finally offering timekeepers a way to keep up with today’s hypermobile, multitasking work environments. In this new reality, small increments of work are forgotten and often go unbooked, cumulatively costing firms big money.

The email offers the chance to participate in a webinar where you can learn “[h]ow Smart Time reinvents timekeeping.”  As if we needed that!

So what we have is a tool law firms deploy so they can bill even more to their already unhappy clients for not doing any additional work and providing no additional value.  I don’t mean to focus on Smart WebParts (reminds me of “pieces is pieces”) since there are other companies offering the same types of products, but firms that deploy tools like this are utterly tone deaf or just don’t give a damn about their clients.
