Market-leading legal software solutions provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced the latest iteration of its .

Proclaim is used in over 700 organisations by 20,000 individuals, for an increasingly broad range of requirements including case, matter, practice and process management.  This latest Proclaim iteration – v3.3.1 of the solution – will be provided free of charge to all Eclipse clients, under the firm’s standard maintenance agreements.  New clients will also benefit from the solution, be it as a new implementation or as a seamless transition from the current Proclaim version.

Proclaim v3.3.1 carries a brand new look and feel – sporting ‘flat design’ to provide an enhanced user experience.  Users will benefit from even clearer signposting of ‘next actions’, in addition to a cleaner working space and even the choice of a range of colour schemes.  The feature-rich nature of Proclaim has been further enhanced, with new functionalities including:

  • ‘Infinite additions’; enabling system designers to easily create additional data fields ‘on the fly’, resulting in rapid bespoke screen building across the Proclaim desktop
  • Multi-user access; empowering legal teams to work on the same matter at the same time
  • ‘Paragraphs’; a document building tool that provides fee earners with the option to pick context sensitive paragraphs from a pre-defined library of text, when creating bespoke or complicated documents (for example, commercial contracts)
  • Enhanced desktop billing; including the ability to electronically draft bills, all within a user-friendly and intuitive ‘bills guide’ interface

Steve Ough, chief software architect at Eclipse, comments:

“This latest version of Proclaim represents a significant step forward in our product roadmap, providing the kind of fluidity and accessibility that our clients – and the market in general – has come to expect from Eclipse.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. 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.
