30 January 2015


AdvancedLegal200Leading legal software provider, Advanced Legal (Advanced), today announces the completion of the early adopter stage of its Claims Utility Engine (CUE) designed to support legal firms that need to electronically submit claims to the Legal Aid Agency’s (LAA) new Client and Costs Management System (CCMS).

The LAA has announced this week that from 1  October 2015 it will be mandatory for all firms that need to submit civil applications to the LAA to use their new Client and Cost Management System (CCMS).

The LAA introduced CCMS as an online system designed to expedite the management of civil and family certificated legal aid cases. Advanced Legal’s CUE will allow solicitors and barristers who use Advanced’s solutions to easily submit claims electronically using the CCMS claims import facility – thereby avoiding the need to re-key claims in full.

Working in conjunction with the LAA and its recent Claim Upload Project, Advanced has now completed the early adopter phase of CUE’s development as it moves into a live environment for customers.

Doug Hargrove, Managing Director of Advanced Legal commented; “The CUE system sits across the vast majority of products in our portfolio and provides real value to any client that needs to use the CCMS. Its introduction so closely after the announcement by the LAA will enable users to quickly take advantage of the Agency’s solution by removing data duplication and saving time submitting entries.”

CUE is available from February 2015 – any legal firms interested in finding out more should call 0844 815 5575.

Advanced Legal is a division of Advanced Computer Software Group plc, a leading supplier of software and IT services to the health, care and business services sectors. In 2014, the Group won Tech Company of the Year in PwC’s UK Tech Awards and ranked in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50, which recognises the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the UK.

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
