Advanced Legal introduce ALB 2.2 – its latest practice management software

has today announced the latest version of its market leading practice management software – ALB. The latest version offers a range of new features to help firms integrate ALB seamlessly into their daily working practices.

ALB’s new functionality includes complete time tracker (powered by Rekoop) integration, Word ‘click and file’ capability and an enhanced client and matter inception case app.

Time tracker enables clients to accurately capture time wherever they are, from a mobile or desktop device, making it easier than ever before to capture time, increase the number billable hours accounted for, and keep track of activities. The seamless integration with ALB ensures any time captured is inputted directly into fee earners’ timesheets ensuring updates are fast and simple to complete.

The new ‘click and file’ functionality allows documents created in Microsoft Word to be saved directly to ALB. Documents, and their associated time, can be saved directly to a matter, streamlining processes and making filing simpler and more intuitive.

Finally ALB 2.2 includes enhancements to the client and matter case app that now allows multiple clients to be created on one matter as part of a single automated process. The client and matter inception case app is designed to streamline the on-boarding of clients process and allows the firm to operate processes against a contact while evaluating risk before creating a client.

Initial details, checks and communications can be stored from the first contact, reducing duplication of data entry, improving compliance and ensuring consistency and accuracy throughout the process thus increasing firms’ efficiency.

Doug Hargrove, managing director, Advanced Legal, comments: “As part of our ongoing investment into ALB, Advanced is committed to ensuring it is as intuitive and simple to use for firms as possible. The system’s new features are designed to integrate with working practices, enabling processes to flow seamlessly. The latest release of ALB is focussed on delivering capability that helps firms improve productivity.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
