New functionalities for the award-winning Proclaim suite

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

Proclaim is in use by almost 8,500 individuals throughout the UK, with clients including some of the country’s leading legal services organisations. The latest developments include:

New Probate module… Proclaim’s Probate case management module has been re-engineered to provide a wide new range of fee earner tools. In addition to extended reporting functionality, automated calculations and a ‘3-click’ navigation system, the new module provides automatic completion of the IHT200 and IHT205 forms.

PCOL (Possession Claim Online)… Proclaim’s repossession modules can now provide a direct online link to Her Majesty’s Courts Service’s online service for claimants and defendants. Data can now be validated and uploaded from Proclaim at a mouse-click, and will serve to further streamline processes for practices involved in volume claims.

Graphical Workload Monitor… Proclaim’s ‘Workload Monitor’ tool has been enhanced to provide ‘at-a-glance’ graphical reports. Workload Monitor provides live fee earner performance statistics for supervisors, enabling analysis of trends, bottlenecks, under-utilised resources, etc. The new development introduces a range of graphical tools, offering even faster and more user-friendly analysis.

Dynamic Database… The Dynamic Database (DD) tool provides a ‘bridge’ between Proclaim and complementary third-party software systems. Using protocols such as ODBC, the DD makes available user-defined data and tables within Proclaim, for access by the external system. Platform-independent, the DD enables this data to be utilised in toolkits such as, for example, Crystal Reports, or in cross-platform instances such as when utilising a Microsoft SQL system. In addition to this data flexibility, the DD also provides a secure environment and negates the chance of corrupting any live information, making it an ideal toolkit for scenario testing and manipulation.
