Linetime Limited has signed SGH Martineau

Leeds based software supplier Linetime Limited has signed up law firm SGH Martineau to take its Liberate package in a complete overhaul of the law firm’s current IT software replacing both Civica and Norwel components currently used by the firm. The firm undertook a market review over the course of last year to determine the best provider for its requirements and chose Linetime earlier this year.

SGH Martineau has operated with two separate practice management and case management systems since the merger of Martineau and SGH in 2011.

Managing Partner Emma Shipp commented “This is a decisive leap forward for the firm and Linetime was an obvious choice for us with its significant footprint in the legal sector. We believe its dedicated team of IT and business experts are well placed to help us manage this project which will ultimately touch every part of the firm – from our accounting and credit control procedures to our sector analysis and CRM solution. We looked carefully at a number of possible options but it was the comprehensive and transparent Business Information module and the user friendly people at Linetime which we found most compelling and sealed the deal. We intend to cultivate a long term relationship with our suppliers and I have no doubt that Linetime is the right fit for us.”

Linetime Managing Director, Tony Klejnow commented “Our business development team worked closely with the client project team to provide a tailored solution that would specifically meet their broad ranging requirements. The practice were clear in their desire to work with a supplier able to provide a single source solution, removing the need to integrate disparate systems and to improve the overall efficiency of the firm.”

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.
