Eclipse announces new EL & PL portal integration
Eclipse Legal Systems, the legal sector’s largest independent software solutions provider, has announced the forthcoming rollout of its A2A solution for EL/PL work. Following a series of Government rulings, all Road Traffic Accident (RTA) claims of a value less than £25,000 are processed through a central electronic portal. This has recently been extended to incorporate Employers Liability (EL) and Public Liability (PL) claim types – again, of a value less than £25,000.
Eclipse was the very first vendor to make true integration with the RTA Portal available (back in 2010) via a seamless A2A (Application-to-Application) method. The announcement of A2A integration with the new extended EL/PL Portal marks another first for the company. Using A2A, claimant law firms with Eclipse’s Proclaim Personal Injury Case Management solution will be able to manage EL/PL claims entirely through the Proclaim desktop, without resorting to the manual entry ‘web browser’ method.
Eclipse’s Business Solutions Director, Tracy Blencowe, comments “Our Proclaim A2A solution is the market’s leading system by quite a margin. We currently have over 250 law firms using A2A for RTA claims, and we expect a similar number will be using our EL/PL integration.
“We are approached almost daily by claimant law firms whose incumbent suppliers can’t (or won’t) provide full A2A integration for them. Given the recently reduced margins in some areas of personal injury work, an IT system that reduces administration and improves processing time is not merely desirable, it is vital.”
