RB Lite overview

RB Lite is the smaller version of RB9 online application for managing court reporting agencies and other legal support businesses. RB Lite contains essential functions to meet the unique scheduling and billing needs of legal support businesses.

It has about half of the functions that RB9 has and costs less. Functions in RB Lite work the same way as they do in RB9. In addition to scheduling and billing, it includes some RB9 production, receivables, payables, and client management functions needed for running a legal support business.

It also includes a few RB9 tools to make using RB Lite easier, such as Bulk Import, which gives you the ability to import your existing clients and resources instead of having to enter them manually. See the comparison chart below for the complete list of RB9 functions included in RB Lite.

Who is RB Lite is for?

  • People just starting out in business. RB Lite clients can move up to RB9 anytime, seamlessly.
  • People who hesitate to make a big commitment. Like RB9, RB Lite is month to month, cancel anytime.
  • People with cyclical or seasonal business income. RB clients can switch between RB Lite and RB9 as needed, with no loss of data.
  • People on a tight budget. RB Lite costs less than RB9.
  • People who already have apps for creating transcripts, shipping products, marketing their business, etc. RB Lite doesn’t include those functions.
  • People at the end of their career who don’t need everything RB9 offers anymore. When an RB9 client is scaling back services, RB Lite only includes the essentials.
  • People who provide legal support services, but not court reporting. Businesses like interpreting agencies or legal videographers don’t produce transcripts, and don’t need to ship, share, or track them either.
