viridian-housingViridian Housing has chosen to implement the Proclaim Matter Management Software solution from Eclipse Legal Systems, the Law Society’s sole Endorsed software provider.

The ambitious housing association provides social housing to over 30,000 residents spanning across London, the south east, the Midlands and West Sussex.

Having experienced tremendous growth since inception, the association now owns around 16,000 homes and works in partnership with local authorities, organisations and residents to create safe, sustainable communities.

In order to streamline its processes and enable its lawyers to maximise matter management efficiency, Viridian Housing decided to invest in a flexible software solution for its in-house legal team. Eclipse’s Proclaim solution is being implemented to automate routine tasks and enable staff to benefit from enhanced regulation of their working practices.

As part of the implementation of Proclaim, Eclipse will be conducting a data migration of existing and historical matters from Viridian’s incumbent system.

The housing association has also opted for Eclipse’s Task Server tool which will automate a number of routine tasks and enable staff to automatically schedule and distribute reports to relevant stakeholders, colleagues and third parties.

Katrina Robinson, head of legal at Viridian Housing, comments:

“As a rapidly expanding housing association, we need our core Matter Management solution to not only be as efficient as possible, but also as flexible as possible. It was clear to us from the outset that Eclipse offered the best solution within the legal software sector, allowing us to successfully build upon our new process improvement strategy, and concentrate on what we do best – providing a best-in-class legal service for our stakeholders.”

Last month, MPs on the justice select committee asked minister Lord Keen what would happen when the government went ahead with its plan to raise the small claims limit for personal injury claims (from £1,000 to £5,000 for road traffic related claims and to £2,000 for everything else). As it is a jurisdiction in which lawyers do not generally operate – because legal costs are not recoverable – who might help claimants navigate what can still be a complex process? His answer, surprisingly, was claims management companies.
