“While many IT solution providers struggle with developing Portal solutions, we have created a market-leading proposition.”

Eclipse Legal Systems, the sector's largest independent software solutions provider, has announced the successful rollout of its A2A (Application-to-Application) “Release 2” update.

Following The Ministry of Justice’s 2010 ruling, all Road Traffic Accident (RTA) claims of a value less than £10,000 must be processed through a central electronic ‘Portal’. Eclipse was the very first vendor to make true integration with the Portal available, via a seamless A2A method. Using A2A, claimant law firms with Eclipse’s Proclaim Case Management solution can manage RTA claims entirely through the Proclaim desktop, without resorting to the manual entry ‘web browser’ method.

As part of an ongoing series of developments to the Portal itself by the RTA Portal Company, a major functional update known as 'Release 2' went live on 25th September 2012. On this date it was mandatory for all Portal users to comply with the new system with immediate effect. Eclipse successfully rolled out its updated Proclaim solution for 251 law firms dealing with RTA Portal claims. Clients include national heavyweights of several hundred staff, through to boutique firms of just one or two users.

Eclipse’s business solutions director, Tracy Blencowe, comments: “With over 250 RTA Portal clients, it was vital that we delivered a seamless and effective upgrade. While many IT solution providers struggle with developing Portal solutions, we have created a market-leading proposition that is both extremely cost-effective and incredibly robust. Our knowledge of Portal integration bodes very well for if, or when, the Government extends its use to Employer Liability, Public Liability or Medical Negligence. For law firms wanting the ultimate Portal case management solution, Proclaim is the default choice.”

How to make a case to the unconverted

Jonathan Whittle

The prospect of change is a daunting one, whether you’re a global firm or a small one. You might think that your firm’s working practices are fine, or that there’s no value in altering the way you do things because of the disruption it would cause. You might even see the benefits of using a different methodology, but still refuse to put the effort in to implement it – and you wouldn’t be alone. From our research in the 2016 report, The Riddle of Perception, we know that 73% of lawyers believe that adapting to change is not where their strength lies. However, it’s no longer optional.
