Quill is the leading supplier of legal accounts software and outsourced cashiering services in the UK to independent solicitors, multi-disciplinary law firms and alternate business structures of all specialisms. With some 40 years’ legal industry experience, and remaining privately owned, Quill is the first choice for many start-ups and small to medium sized law firms.

Interactive, its hosted accounts and practice management software, is used by nearly 5000 solicitors, cashiers and support staff. Pinpoint, its outsourced cashiering service, is used by over 300 law firms across England and Wales. This unique combination of cutting-edge software development skills and legal accounting expertise means that Interactive helps legal professionals with their SRA Accounts Rules, data protection, money laundering and other regulatory compliance obligations.

Cloud-hosted legal accounts, practice and document management software

Interactive delivers all you would expect of a market-leading legal accounting and practice management system for the smaller practice. Conflict, money laundering and credit checking is available during new client set-up while postcode look-up facilitates a clean and tidy database. Powerful time recording tools make it easy for fee earners to log chargeable activity, with flexible rate features to accommodate most charging policies.

With a strong focus on financial compliance, Interactive allows users to see both client and office ledger balances simultaneously. A unique e-chit facility connects fee earners to their cashiering team, instructing them to prepare monetary transfers, post bills, pay disbursements and carry out other ledger transactions via daily e-chits. Authorisation levels can also be appointed for greater financial management control.

Interactive comes with a comprehensive document management system, allocating relevant documentation to each matter in a categorised filing structure. Integration with Word and Outlook is an option, thereby capturing email dialogue and correspondence automatically with appropriate time recordings.

For firms with specialist case management systems, Quill provides a unique API allowing integration with Interactive from their chosen system, giving clients the flexibility to choose dual suppliers for a best-of-breed solution.

Outsourced legal cashiering service

For businesses which prefer the outsourcing route, Pinpoint is the UK’s largest outsourced legal cashiering service, and employs a team of qualified legal cashiers to manage clients’ accounts in compliance with defined rules, regulations and legislation, posting in excess of 2 million accounting transactions per annum. The service provides a no-holiday, never-sick model with an allocated and dedicated named cashier for each client, backed up by a deputy for cover and supervised within groups of six staff.

The Pinpoint service, provided complete with the Interactive hosted system, enables firms to hand over their accounting functions to a dedicated 40-strong team of experienced legal cashiers who will compile and maintain accounts, generate reports and prepare all statutory documentation in accordance with the stringent demands of the SRA Accounts Rules.

Outsourced payroll service

An additional outsourced payroll service, Payroll, is also available for full management of salary and pension responsibilities in line with latest reforms such as RTI and auto enrolment, thereby allowing companies to alleviate the burden of payroll and pension management, associated compliance, and focus internal resources on more productive, profitable activities instead.

Quill’s specialised outsourced payroll division has over 35 years’ experience in the field and its qualified team of Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals-accredited payroll clerks currently handle 4000+ payroll calculations per month. In a climate of unpredictability where disaster (natural or otherwise) can strike unexpectedly and suddenly, there’s an increasing focus on emergency planning.  Reassuringly, Payroll comes with business continuity as standard.
