wayne-bviThe Government of the British Virgin Islands is implementing the Proclaim Case Management Software Solution from Eclipse Legal Systems, the Law Society’s sole endorsed provider.

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), a constitutionally independent office, handles all aspects of Criminal Law and prosecution for the Territory, including Magisterial, High Court, Appeals, and Privy Council.

A bespoke Proclaim solution will be utilised throughout the ODPP, providing staff with instant desktop access and ensuring a secure, consistent and efficient approach. Proclaim will also allow staff to track all case information – from the initial log through to conviction – ensuring a complete onscreen case summary is available for authorised personnel.

In addition, Proclaim’s integrated reporting suite will allow the ODPP to conduct an in-depth analysis of data including file status and case durations, ensuring the highest levels of ongoing analysis and efficiency throughout the department.

Wayne Rajbansie, director of public prosecutions, comments:

“Eclipse’s Proclaim solution stood out to us because of its inherent flexibility – crucial for us in order to shape our services around our local statutes and criminal procedures. Additionally, with Proclaim we can enhance our efficiency by greatly streamlining the administrative tasks that are an integral part of what we do, ensuring that all case information is centralised.”

Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
