Eclipse Legal Systems, the sector’s largest independent software solutions provider*, has announced the impending release of a mobile time recording application. The application – currently codenamed MyTime – will provide mobile time recording for users of Eclipse’s Proclaim case and practice management solutions. MyTime is designed to cater for all popular devices including Apple (iOS), Android, Blackberry and Windows Mobile.
A real-time (or on-demand/push) sync means that recorded time elements can be posted to the relevant Proclaim area for analysis and confirmation (MyTime will also include a client and matter lookup feature). All time and narrative entries will update the relevant matters, WIP and billing details across areas of the user’s own Proclaim solution.
Mick Thompson, Technical Director at Eclipse, comments: “This is an important development, furthering our ethos of providing device-independent, mobile productivity applications to complement Proclaim. We have opted to design MyTime in-house, from scratch, to provide the very best fit for our users in terms of tapping in to Proclaim’s rich feature set.
“We are seeing more and more clients come to us requesting applications and features that require an ‘any time, any place’ architecture. Not only do these applications need to be platform-agnostic, but they need to be location-agnostic too. We feel that the type of remote access to core enterprise software feature sets that this application (and the forthcoming TouchPoint) offers is very much the future of legal IT solutions.”
* Given all the acquisitions & consolidations in the UK legal IT sector – Eclipse probably is the biggest of the remaining independents!
