“While many IT solution providers struggle with developing Portal solutions, we have created a market-leading proposition.”

Eclipse Legal Systems, the sector's largest independent software solutions provider, has announced the successful rollout of its A2A (Application-to-Application) “Release 2” update.

Following The Ministry of Justice’s 2010 ruling, all Road Traffic Accident (RTA) claims of a value less than £10,000 must be processed through a central electronic ‘Portal’. Eclipse was the very first vendor to make true integration with the Portal available, via a seamless A2A method. Using A2A, claimant law firms with Eclipse’s Proclaim Case Management solution can manage RTA claims entirely through the Proclaim desktop, without resorting to the manual entry ‘web browser’ method.

As part of an ongoing series of developments to the Portal itself by the RTA Portal Company, a major functional update known as 'Release 2' went live on 25th September 2012. On this date it was mandatory for all Portal users to comply with the new system with immediate effect. Eclipse successfully rolled out its updated Proclaim solution for 251 law firms dealing with RTA Portal claims. Clients include national heavyweights of several hundred staff, through to boutique firms of just one or two users.

Eclipse’s business solutions director, Tracy Blencowe, comments: “With over 250 RTA Portal clients, it was vital that we delivered a seamless and effective upgrade. While many IT solution providers struggle with developing Portal solutions, we have created a market-leading proposition that is both extremely cost-effective and incredibly robust. Our knowledge of Portal integration bodes very well for if, or when, the Government extends its use to Employer Liability, Public Liability or Medical Negligence. For law firms wanting the ultimate Portal case management solution, Proclaim is the default choice.”

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
