UK-based case management software provider Hoowla  has expanded to Northern Ireland with the opening of a new office.
Hoowla’s Northern Ireland office has been set up by local entrepreneur Jim O’Connor and the move means that Hoowla is able to expand within Northern Ireland with the knowledge and expertise of a local expert.
Founded in 2013, Hoowla provides a modern approach to legal software and the case management system allows legal professionals to manage their case loads efficiently and automatically generate legal documents, submitting information to third parties such as HMRC and the Land Registry.
Specialising in providing a completely cloud-based case management software  solution, Hoowla is used by law firms and introducers of all sizes throughout England and Wales and works closely with all it’s users to provide a constantly evolving platform that can be tailored to each firm’s specific needs.
Hoowla managing director Adam Curtis says that this approach to providing a modern, frequently updated software solution is at the heart of what Hoowla does. “More and more firms are moving away from the traditional, installed systems which are expensive to setup and are limited on updates. Hoowla is based in the cloud, which means that new features are added on a regular basis and, for the majority of firms, set up is free. 21st century users want the ability to access and update information from anywhere and Hoowla can be securely accessed on any internet enabled device.”
Hoowla’s panel management  part of the system means that solicitors can develop and build relationships with mortgage brokers, estate agents and other local introducers.
Jim O’Connor adds “At a time when social media and online shopping create an expectation of instant access to information and 24/7 service, the Hoowla system allows solicitors to meet those expectations for their clients. We are excited by the possibilities offered in improving client service, and also by the opportunities for the development of professional networks. Not only does this technology facilitate more effective communication between users, the time saving features of the system allow firms to become more competitive and more profitable. The initial response from solicitors, estate agents and mortgage brokers has been very enthusiastic, and we look forward to working with Hoowla in ongoing development across the province.”
The launch of Hoowla’s Northern Ireland office has resulted in a number of firms that are keen to use the software to improve client services and increase work efficiency, with a multi branch solicitors in Northern Ireland currently in setup and a growing number of mortgage brokers and estate agents already using the platform.
