Recession – what recession? Some vendors are still winning orders – these two came in late on Thursday…

South coast law firm Moore Blatch Resolve has selected Eclipse Legal Systems' Proclaim case management software to help manage growing caseloads following its business restructure. This follows the move earlier this year when Moore Blatch Solicitors created two separate limited liability partnerships: Moore Blatch Resolve LLP – which incorporates its personal injury and clinical negligence practice; and Moore Blatch LLP – which encompasses the firm’s professional services.

Moore Blatch Resolve selected Proclaim for an initial tranche of 60 users and is also implementing the Proclaim Accounts system to provide an integrated practice management toolset. The original Moore Blatch practice was a LexisNexis Axxia/Lexis Nexis Visualfiles site so we understand Eclipse are pretty ecstatic about snatching the deal from under the noses of Visualfiles. A consultant told the Orange Rag the inherent flexibility of the Eclipse Proclaim software has become a key differentiator for firms setting up new business units (such as Moore Blatch Resolve) because “the last thing anyone wants is months and months of implementation time and then to be lumbered with a system that can't be tailored or tweaked inhouse unless you employ a troop of Solcase programmers”.

The second deal to be announced was by Aderant was at the licensed insolvency practitioners & business services provider Begbies Traynor Group plc, which is replacing its legacy management system with
the Aderant Expert integrated business and financial management
application suite. The group will also deploy a spend control solution
from Proactis Group, a new partner of Aderant.


Nick Taylor, the group financial controller at Begbies Traynor said that after an extensive selection process, Begbies Traynor selected Aderant Expert to replace its current legacy systems. Among the reasons given were Aderant's extensive use of industry-standard Microsoft technologies and its proven track record of timely and successful implementations.
