Hibberts identify PracticeEvolve as a catalyst for growth

Full-service law firm, Hibberts Solicitors have selected PracticeEvolve to consolidate multiple systems into one, cloud-based solution having identified technology as a crucial catalyst to productivity and growth.

Hibberts have over 200 years of experience and operate across five offices in Crewe, Nantwich, Tarporley and Whitchurch. Employing over 80 people, the team pride themselves on a commitment to personal service and legal expertise across a full range of legal services including company, commercial, employment law, property (conveyancing), tenancy, dispute resolution, private client, agricultural probate, family law & divorce and estate matters.

Chris Boundy, IT Manager at Hibberts outlines how technology is crucial to the future of law firms. “We recognise the importance of technology in delivering efficiencies and productivity. Managing multiple systems doesn’t help our team and is really a false economy. We needed to find a single solution that would support various departments who all have differing needs. It was important any solution would allow us to flexibly build workflows and tailor documents ourselves. In parallel, we were keen to avoid systems where workflows require in-depth knowledge of code.”

Chris continues, “PracticeEvolve’s Cloud based solution allows us to scale for the future. Importantly it provides us the ability to build workflows with a drag and drop functionality while providing the tools departments need, including a client portal where large documents and files can be shared, securely. It’s these finer details that will enable us to drive productivity and efficiencies within the firm.”

Stewart Bailey, Managing Partner at Hibberts says compliance can be managed through good technology, “Claire at PracticeEvolve was able to demonstrate how a matter can be opened and managed and how a wide range of features ensures compliance throughout. That the technology can help improve compliance is critical for the future as we look to make everyone more productive. Similarly, the depth of the PracticeEvolve reporting suite will ensure we can accurately measure compliance, productivity, and efficiencies across the business. In turn, that will ensure our teams across the multiple offices will be much happier with one system.”

Claire Worrall BDM at PracticeEvolve says “Throughout the selection process the vision Hibberts had for technology within their practice was clear. It made demonstrating how our Software could support their view of what a ‘Future Legal Practice’ looks like was easier but also very exciting. I am thrilled Chris; Stewart and the wider team have selected PracticeEvolve to help achieve their vision.”
