It also allows firms that hire the court reporting agency to bill correctly in line with their clients agreed upon rates. This allows better visibility and transparency into accurate court reporting fees, and improves billing compliance with agreed upon rates for better cost control. 
 
New Passport enhancements were made to Collaboration Portal, which enables legal and claims departments to securely exchange data and information with their law firms and other legal service providers, and the solution’s Premium Reporting tool.

The improved user experience features a new modern user interface, streamlined report building and enhanced visualizations.
