Enhanced Proclaim Billing functionalities

Legal software solutions provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has unveiled the latest addition to its ‘Proclaim’ software suite (voted ‘Integrated System of the Year’ at the 2008 Legal Technology Awards).

This latest development sees Proclaim’s Billing functionality undergo significant enhancement, further strengthening the software’s increasingly popular practice management features. Traditionally one of the market’s leading Case Management systems, recent years have seen Proclaim offer a fully-integrated Practice Management platform, with its optional Accounts module now in use at over 130 law firms.

The Billing feature allows fee earners to select any disbursement to bill, and enables them to decide to bill work by percentage and across chosen dates. Bills are instantaneously forwarded to the practice’s accounting team, or nominated cashier, for approval and entry into the relevant nominal.

All bills are fully customisable, and can be itemised and created upon numerous criteria (for example, fixed fee, time / WIP based, by fee earner(s), by transaction(s), etc).

Eclipse’s Sales Director, Russell Thomson, comments:

“This latest development further expands Proclaim’s suitability across legal sectors. By enriching the financial features of the system, we are now also appealing to firms who operate in more commercial and multi-disciplinary environments, as well as the high-volume specialists who we serve so well.”
