Legal IT Newswire… PG Legal selects Proclaim practice management system

Commercial law specialist, PG Legal, has implemented the Law Society Endorsed Proclaim Practice Management Software solution from Eclipse Legal Systems, the UK’s leading legal software provider.

Established in 2011 and specialising in commercial property transactions, PG Legal has grown to provide a range of legal services to businesses of all sizes and sectors in the North East and throughout the UK, including dispute resolution, debt recovery and employment law. Today the firm operates from its head office in Gateshead with further offices in Stockton and has a team of 24 committed to providing excellent client care.

Prior to implementing Proclaim, PG Legal had outgrown its incumbent software systems which no longer provided the functionality needed to cement the firm as the first choice for businesses looking for legal solutions. To strengthen its market position, PG Legal chose an easy to use Proclaim Practice Management solution bringing case and practice management together into one central, secure platform.

As part of the implementation of Proclaim, Eclipse conducted a data migration of both case and accounting data from the practice’s incumbent systems.

To establish a solid approach to managing prospective clients, the firm has implemented Proclaim’s New Business Enquiries toolset to streamline enquiry management and file opening procedures. The firm is also benefitting from Eclipse’s integrated Credit Control Centre tool which provides increased efficiencies through complete management and analysis of key payments information.

Jonathan Fletcher, Director at PG Legal comments:

“We see implementing Proclaim as a vital part of our future strategy to drive the practice forward whilst staying true to our core value of providing an excellent, comfortable and transparent customer experience. The inbuilt scalability and flexibility of Proclaim will prove invaluable as our operations and client base continue to expand.”
