Introducing top level security, Google two factor authentication, web-based working and apps for remote access, DPS delivers the software innovation that the legal market is demanding.

In the last few months alone, DPS has rolled out new products enriching its hosted IT solution (dpscloud) and responding to the market’s requirements for cloud-based software that offer the fee earner instant access to their data and enable them to work remotely.

The search for software talent to deliver these applications has led to DPS’s investment in an office and sister company in Sri Lanka.  DPS Sri Lanka now has 10 full time highly experienced web developers engaged in new projects that are at the cutting edge of legal software development.

Osman Ismail, the managing director of DPS Software shared his thoughts on the opening of the new office: ‘’We feel the market is moving to a full software-as-a-service model and developing the products that are built for this model is key.

Many software providers now offer their software over a hosted platform but this is using old technologies that are either already obsolete or rapidly becoming obsolete. Our drive is to develop our software using new technologies that include new security models that are vital for safe and fast working. The drive is to give our users a better experience than desktop-based software, over the web. The Sri Lanka office will give us the resources to do this.”

With a 30 year pedigree, DPS are the largest legal cloud provider on the market, hosting over 140 legal businesses nation-wide. During the years, the company have built a strong and growing market position thanks to their award-winning software products ranging from practice management to digital dictation and secure client portal solutions.

Rating lawyers by their wins and losses – a good idea?

Robert Ambrogi

Lawyers will give you any number of reasons why their win-loss rates in court are not accurate reflections of their legal skills. Yet a growing number of companies are evaluating lawyers by this standard – compiling and analysing lawyers’ litigation track records to help consumers and businesses make more-informed hiring decisions. The shortcomings of evaluating lawyers by win rates are many. Not least of them is that so few cases ever make it to a win or loss. Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
