Eclipse Legal Systems, the legal sector’s largest independent software solutions provider, has announced the forthcoming rollout of its for EL / PL work.

Following a series of Government rulings, all Road Traffic Accident (RTA) claims of a value less than £25,000 are processed through a central electronic ‘Portal’.  This has recently been extended to incorporate Employers Liability (EL) and Public Liability (PL) claim types – again, of a value less than £25,000.

Eclipse was the very first vendor to make true integration with the RTA Portal available (back in 2010) via a seamless A2A (Application-to-Application) method.  The announcement of A2A integration with the new extended EL / PL Portal marks another first for the company.

Using A2A, claimant law firms with Eclipse’s solution will be able to manage EL / PL claims entirely through the desktop, without resorting to the manual entry ‘web browser’ method.

Eclipse’s Business Solutions Director, Tracy Blencowe, comments:

“Our Proclaim A2A solution is the market’s leading system by quite a margin.  We currently have over 250 law firms using A2A for RTA claims, and we expect a similar number will be using our EL / PL integration.

“We are approached almost daily by claimant law firms whose incumbent suppliers can’t (or won’t) provide full A2A integration for them.  Given the recently reduced margins in some areas of personal injury work, an IT system that reduces administration and improves processing time is not merely desirable, it is vital.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
