After an in-depth selection process involving a number of suppliers, Lanyon Bowdler have chosen to replace their existing Legal Business Management systems with rapidly growing technology provider, PracticeEvolve.
Lanyon Bowdler are a full service, 250-person firm operating across Shropshire, Herefordshire and North Wales. A comprehensive audit of suppliers was performed under a strategy focused towards offering improved efficiencies to Lanyon Bowdler’s established client base.
Brian Evans, Managing Partner at the firm comments “Improving client efficiencies is going to continue to be fundamental to our success in the coming years, so selecting the best long-term partners for our firm is crucial. Having spent significant time investigating various options, we kept returning to PracticeEvolve as they simply offer everything we require for case management and accounts. In fact, there is an enormous amount of functionality within the system and even our own feature requests were quickly built into the product roadmap.
Brian identifies progressive technology as key to their decision, continuing, “Ensuring we selected the most progressive solution was absolutely crucial to achieving client efficiencies. We could clearly see PracticeEvolve had plenty of functionality and we were impressed by their dedication to continuing the evolution of the software. We are very excited to proceed to the next step of migrating across.”
Matt Fiske-Jackson, strategic lead at PracticeEvolve, says “I am very excited by this opportunity. I will say this has been a long process but for very good reason – it demonstrates Lanyon Bowdler’s quite unique approach to due diligence and a very in-depth comparison. For PracticeEvolve to be selected really demonstrates our own credentials as a legal tech provider in the market. We cannot wait to get started.”
Martyn Wells, IT consultant to Lanyon Bowdler highlights how progressive technology is going to be crucial to firms in the future, “I am delighted to be working for Lanyon Bowdler on their implementation of PracticeEvolve. The landscape has been changing for a while but the recent pandemic has simply shifted the need for change up a few gears. Lanyon Bowdler has embedded technology into its culture as they recognise the importance of how operational efficiencies impact clients and their expectations. I believe that PracticeEvolve will deliver them enduring change and productive gains that will make them truly fit for the future.”
