The latest in a series of announcements about product development investment from Tikit is the most significant yet. Carpe Diem Classic, the original desktop timekeeping application, has been the system of choice for law firms for more than 20 years. Designed by lawyers for lawyers, its adoption by lawyers is unparalleled in the industry.

Over the years technology has changed and so has the business of law. This has created challenges in extending the current platform into the future. Therefore, Tikit has committed to a major rewrite of Carpe Diem in 2014 that will take advantage of the latest technology platforms and retain all of the features of the product that lawyers are used to. The next generation will add full support for multiple languages, integrated security and improved reporting, as well as providing a choice of interfaces. Importantly, this allows lawyers the option to select the proven Classic interface with which they have such affinity – meaning no new end-user training will be required for deployment. This project will safeguard Carpe Diem’s position as the most usable time recording suite on the market.

This development opens the door to incorporating additional functionality (currently available in Carpe Diem Enterprise) into the product, to ensure that Carpe Diem will remain the leading time recording brand for the legal industry into the future.

“We’re proud to commit to the Carpe Diem brand and to this landmark development. It’s rare in this industry to commit to such a significant project in creating a next generation version of a product. We’re also pleased to be able to offer this to customers as part of an upgrade model, and I’m confident that our clients will welcome the change and that anyone considering their time recording solution will be considering Carpe Diem.” commented Tim Springham, Tikit CEO.

McKenzie Friends – a storm in a teapot

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
