Ochresoft hits purple patch with Indigo

Legal workflow specialist Ochresoft has announced that it has become the exclusive reseller for Indigo Legal Systems, suppliers of the practice management system Indigo Financial Centre.

Indigo Financial Centre is the 4th generation system developed by the original architects of Solomon, which became Avenue, and more recently its predecessor Paragon. Indigo and Paragon have over 170 sites across England and Wales and the team have always sold through a reseller structure. Ochresoft believes Indigo is a perfect complement to its class-leading Cloud-based workflow solution, Intelliworks; and while there are plans to integrate the two products, the company is keen to stress that an integrated platform will be just one option, with both Indigo and Intelliworks continuing to be offered as discrete best-of-breed solutions.

Ochresoft’s Pauline Freegard explains the rationale behind the new reseller arrangement: “Basically, it’s a win-win-win scenario. There are Indigo users looking for a good workflow solution, Intelliworks users wanting a capable back office, and lots of firms beyond our user bases looking for one or other or both! What appealed to us about Indigo – and what has been confirmed to us by early research – is that there is a breadth and depth of functionality that is all considered standard product, and priced accordingly. And to that basic good value we’ll be adding affordability by moving to a monthly licensing model with a low capital project with a fixed price full data transfer.

We were particularly impressed by Indigo’s data transfer team and track record. Migration can be one of the biggest barriers to change, with firms worried about risks to data, and bloated and protracted projects. Indigo have honed a very ‘lean and mean’ approach to implementations, with pinpoint accuracy on full data transfers and very compact, cohesive project management. That keeps costs down and engagement up, helping users get off to a quick, positive start.

We know from our own exposure to the market that there is an appetite for a strong, feature-rich PMS that isn’t reliant on add-on modules and extra this and that to give it value, but is just a well-rounded solution out of the box. Indigo fits that bill perfectly and we’re confident we can help it fulfil its potential within the SME legal space.”

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.
