BRADFORD, England, September 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Eclipse's Proclaim Practice Management Software solution chosen for leading law firm
Full service law firm, Ringrose Law, is implementing the Proclaim Practice Management Software solution from Eclipse Legal Systems.
Ringrose Law operates from 7 offices, providing a broad portfolio of services to private individuals and businesses across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Lexcel accredited for ten years, the practice employs over 130 staff and has been at the forefront of local legal services for over 100 years. With a history of successfully reshaping as markets and legislation have changed, Ringrose Law entered a rigorous and lengthy selection process to replace the incumbent Matter Management and financial accounting systems.
Ringrose Law is rolling out the integrated Proclaim Practice Management solution across the entire firm, providing instant desktop access to productivity, financial and client management toolsets. Proclaim Process Management solutions will be introduced for the Conveyancing and Personal Injury departments, while for less prescriptive work areas (including Court of Protection, Employment, Family, Probate and Crime), Proclaim Matter Management solutions will be utilised.
As part of the practice-wide integrated solution, Ringrose Law will be utilising Proclaim client inception and CRM tools, to manage the 'new enquiry' process and introduce business on-stream in a consistent manner. Taking this further, the practice will also benefit from Eclipse's client self-service toolsets - TouchPoint, SecureDocs and FileView - enabling clients to agree documents online, monitor file progress, and communicate with the firm through the full life of a matter.
As an integral part of the system rollout, Eclipse will be carrying out a conversion of both client and financial data from Ringrose Law's incumbent software systems.
Andrew Watson, Finance Director at Ringrose Law, comments:
"When we first met Eclipse in 2013, at the Legal IT exhibition in London, we were taken both by the approachability of the Eclipse team and the power of the Proclaim solution. As part of our ongoing growth strategy we were investigating software solutions that could further improve our internal processes and provide consistency across how teams perform and are measured."
"What we found in Proclaim was that the system could not only improve internal efficiencies, financial management and compliance, but it could also provide direct client-facing systems to enable online self-service for the people and businesses we help every day. The fact that Proclaim provides this broad business benefit for us made the system our number one choice by a fair margin."
Eclipse is the UK's leading provider of legal software solutions, employing 150 staff at its Yorkshire HQ and generating a turnover of £9 million. The firm's Proclaim software system is in use by circa 20,000 professionals across a vast range of market sectors, territories and work areas.
Proclaim integrates all case management, accounting, document management, reporting, time recording, task and diary functions, and can be web-enabled to allow clients and referrers to securely view their live case files online.
TouchPoint is Eclipse's new client self-service solution, providing an always-on, platform agnostic 'journey' for law firm clients and business partners.
Proclaim clients include:
- Eversheds Solicitors
- Co-operative Legal Services
- Ringrose Law
- Carillion plc
- Quality Solicitors (including Howlett Clarke, Lockings, Oliver & Co, and many others)

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
