Equitrac is the software used by many printers and copiers. By exporting your LeanLaw matters into an Equitrac product, you can track how many pages you print for your matters. By importing the data from your Equitrac product back into LeanLaw periodically, you can create expenses for those copies in LeanLaw. Here's how you can use our Equitrac integration to ensure accurate cost recovery!
