Market-leading legal software solutions provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has announced the latest iteration of its .

Proclaim is used in over 700 organisations by 20,000 individuals, for an increasingly broad range of requirements including case, matter, practice and process management.  This latest Proclaim iteration – v3.3.1 of the solution – will be provided free of charge to all Eclipse clients, under the firm’s standard maintenance agreements.  New clients will also benefit from the solution, be it as a new implementation or as a seamless transition from the current Proclaim version.

Proclaim v3.3.1 carries a brand new look and feel – sporting ‘flat design’ to provide an enhanced user experience.  Users will benefit from even clearer signposting of ‘next actions’, in addition to a cleaner working space and even the choice of a range of colour schemes.  The feature-rich nature of Proclaim has been further enhanced, with new functionalities including:

  • ‘Infinite additions’; enabling system designers to easily create additional data fields ‘on the fly’, resulting in rapid bespoke screen building across the Proclaim desktop
  • Multi-user access; empowering legal teams to work on the same matter at the same time
  • ‘Paragraphs’; a document building tool that provides fee earners with the option to pick context sensitive paragraphs from a pre-defined library of text, when creating bespoke or complicated documents (for example, commercial contracts)
  • Enhanced desktop billing; including the ability to electronically draft bills, all within a user-friendly and intuitive ‘bills guide’ interface

Steve Ough, chief software architect at Eclipse, comments:

“This latest version of Proclaim represents a significant step forward in our product roadmap, providing the kind of fluidity and accessibility that our clients – and the market in general – has come to expect from Eclipse.”

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.
