Manchester law firm, TPC Solicitors, is implementing Eclipse‘s Proclaim Practice Management Software solution in a deal valued at over £100,000.

Formed in 2004 as an associate firm of Thornleys Solicitors, the focus at TPC was initially conveyancing. This conveyancing work was transferred back into Thornleys during 2009, TPC splitting away in April 2010 to operate as an independent firm dealing primarily with road traffic accident injury matters. Having experienced rapid growth and an increasing volume of work, TPC sought to replace its incumbent system with one geared towards firm-wide matter management and practice financials.

TPC is implementing Proclaim throughout the organisation as its core Practice Management solution. Proclaim’s integrated Lead Management and Compliance solutions are included to provide seamless marketing, file opening, and ongoing adherence to SRA regulations. In addition, TPC is taking advantage of Proclaim’s A2A (application-to-application) functionality to process low-value RTA (road traffic accident) claims through the government’s portal system.

As part of the project, Eclipse is carrying out a conversion of both case and accounting data from the practice’s incumbent systems.

Lauren Lloyd, practice manager at TPC Solicitors, comments on the selection: “We see implementing Proclaim as a vital part of our future-proofing strategy. Personal injury work is a fluid sector, under not only competitive but also legislative pressures. Proclaim is proven to be a flexible and practically infinitely configurable system – capable of handling whatever is thrown at it, and adapting to new market conditions. And critically for us, no other IT vendor can provide such a solid current and future integration strategy with the MoJ’s portal system as it expands across other injury areas.”

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.
