Carillion Advice Services (CAS), part of FTSE 250 company, Carillion, has implemented Eclipse‘s Proclaim solution.

As a group, Carillion employs 40,000 people and generates global revenues of over £4billion.  Majoring in construction and investment activities, Carillion has expanded its portfolio to offer legal and advice services, with CAS delivering quality, timely, advice to individuals and organisations.  CAS operates in both the public and private sectors and is known for both quality and the competitive rates at which advice is provided. The innovative CAS model and expertise in managed legal service and outsourcing offers a highly scalable platform for growth.

CAS recently won a 5-year contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide legally aided telephone advice (having last year taken over the contract holder, Eaga).  Managed by Carillion Legal, the contract is being run by CAS which is now the country’s largest advice provider of its type.

Following an exhaustive selection process, Carillion chose Eclipse’s system to manage all core CAS advice and matter progression work.  Proclaim provides a complete, centralised desktop solution for all CAS fee earners and advisors, managing the full lifecycle of each file, from inception to conclusion.

Helen Ord, who heads CAS, comments:

“Of key importance for us was a solution that provides a slick and user-friendly environment for our advisors, whilst also providing the best possible experience for the people we help.  Proclaim fits the bill on both accounts, and in it we have found the perfect framework in which to deliver our service promise.”

Eclipse’s Chief Business Executive, Russell Thomson, comments:

“We are delighted to welcome Carillion onboard – Proclaim provides a fantastic solution for organisations wanting to deliver an optimum service experience both internally and externally.  We look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

Going social

Derek Fitzpatrick Clio

Legal professionals, as communicators, serve a crucial role in social conversations, but have not been quick to adopt a strong presence on social media. Many lawyers are reluctant to start a social media profile as they don’t foresee any benefits to having one. The bottom line is that lawyers won’t get clients from social media if they are not using it. With 62% of adults having a Facebook account, your clients – and competitors – are using social media and you can no longer afford to treat it as an afterthought in the digital age.
