HDCS (Hill Dickinson Claim Solutions) has chosen the Proclaim Case Management Software system from Legal Futures Associate Eclipse Legal Systems to replace the firm’s legacy claims management systems.

The specialist unit at Hill Dickinson LLP (a top 35 law firm) provides a complete claims management service on behalf of insurance clients, acting for some of the country’s leading organisations, including household names such as Tesco Insurance.

Rapid growth in the HDCS unit necessitated a review of its existing core claims software systems. Following a review of solutions available, the firm made the decision to implement Eclipse’s Proclaim solution for an initial roll-out of 150 users.

As a key part of the project, Eclipse will be providing bespoke Proclaim configuration using the system’s in-built toolkits. The final solution delivered to HDCS will be unique to the practice, providing individual claim workflows from inception through to litigation, across the unit’s different teams (uninsured loss recovery, motor, casualty, etc).

In addition, the firm has chosen Eclipse’s FileView online case-tracking tool to provide its clients with 24/7 access to live case progression data. Eclipse is also carrying out a migration of data from the existing HDCS software system to Proclaim.

Keith Feeny, director of IT & operations across the Hill Dickinson business, said: “We continue to experience substantial growth and the HDCS unit in particular is going from strength to strength. Operational excellence is absolutely vital if we are to push forward and win more business – Eclipse’s Proclaim system provides an excellent foundation for our business process requirements.”

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
