Blakemores drop IRIS for TFB
Birmingham-based Blakemores Solicitors has swapped out its IRIS AlphaLaw practice management system in favour of TFB’s Partner for Windows. The firm is also anticipating significant efficiency gains for the processing of their LSC family and immigration work thanks to the comprehensive legal aid functionality of Partner for Windows. The firm will be rolling out a 180-user Partner for Windows practice management system across the firm whilst implementing case management within their family, probate and immigration departments. They have also chosen to implement Partner TaskCentre, a business process management tool, which will allow them to provide timely and specific management information to key personnel.
Robert Palmer, IT Manager at Blakemores comments, ‘When we decided to replace our IRIS AlphaLaw Accounts System, we were looking for a flexible, intuitive and easy to use system. Partner for Windows meets all these requirements and more. From a user perspective, our cashiers particularly favoured it because of the comprehensive in-built LSC functionality and our Head of Finance, Kerry Sherrad, liked its flexible management reporting. From an IT perspective, its ability to work seamlessly within our existing infrastructure and integrate with other leading technologies means the system can grow with the firm and help us embrace new ways of working such as the growing market of online services.’
