Leeds based software supplier Linetime Limited has signed up law firm SGH Martineau (currently No #86 on the Insider chart) to take its Liberate package in a complete overhaul of the law firm’s current IT software replacing both Civica and Norwel components currently used by the firm. The firm undertook a market review over the course of last year to determine the best provider for its requirements and chose Linetime earlier this year.
SGH Martineau has operated with two separate practice management and case management systems since the merger of Martineau and SGH in 2011. Managing Partner Emma Shipp commented “This is a decisive leap forward for the firm and Linetime was an obvious choice for us with its significant footprint in the legal sector. We believe its dedicated team of IT and business experts are well placed to help us manage this project which will ultimately touch every part of the firm – from our accounting and credit control procedures to our sector analysis and CRM solution. We looked carefully at a number of possible options but it was the comprehensive and transparent Business Information module and the user friendly people at Linetime which we found most compelling and sealed the deal. We intend to cultivate a long term relationship with our suppliers and I have no doubt that Linetime is the right fit for us.”
COMMENT: For a firm of its size, it is interesting to see SGH Martineau went with Linetime rather than an Elite system. Clearly independent thinkers, we salute you!
