HDCS (Hill Dickinson Claim Solutions) has chosen the Proclaim Case Management Software system from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse Legal Systems to replace the firm’s legacy claims management systems.

The specialist unit at Hill Dickinson LLP (a top 35 law firm) provides a complete claims management service on behalf of insurance clients, acting for some of the country’s leading organisations, including household names such as Tesco Insurance.

Rapid growth in the HDCS unit necessitated a review of its existing core claims software systems. Following a review of solutions available, the firm made the decision to implement Eclipse’s Proclaim solution for an initial roll-out of 150 users.

As a key part of the project, Eclipse will be providing bespoke Proclaim configuration using the system’s in-built toolkits. The final solution delivered to HDCS will be unique to the practice, providing individual claim workflows from inception through to litigation, across the unit’s different teams (uninsured loss recovery, motor, casualty, etc).

In addition, the firm has chosen Eclipse’s FileView online case-tracking tool to provide its clients with 24/7 access to live case progression data. Eclipse is also carrying out a migration of data from the existing HDCS software system to Proclaim.

Keith Feeny, director of IT & operations across the Hill Dickinson business, said: “We continue to experience substantial growth and the HDCS unit in particular is going from strength to strength. Operational excellence is absolutely vital if we are to push forward and win more business – Eclipse’s Proclaim system provides an excellent foundation for our business process requirements.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
