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.”

Court modernisation: Court Service spins response to NAO report

Roger Smith

After months of debate on the court modernisation programme led by Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service, we now have an authoritative analysis from the National Audit Office. HMCTS chief executive Susan Acland-Hood professed herself happy. The report was “helpful and constructive”. She was pleased that “the NAO acknowledges our ‘early progress’”. Her comments were more reflective of spin than the span of the NAO report. The NAO acknowledges the ambitious nature of the reform. But comments like “HMCTS’s change portfolio presents a very significant challenge” need minimal decoding to reveal a bit of concern.
