Practice Management software is the cornerstone of a successful legal practice. When Practice Management tools are working effectively the firm can expect accurate billing, efficient time management and clear communication with clients and partners – of course, when Practice Management tools aren’t working or are not suitable for the firm then the opposite can be true.
In the Australian market there are popular tools in use and if you’ve been around the traps for a while you’ve probably heard of them. These include:
· Affinity (LexisNexis)
· Locus (LexisNexis)
· Open Practice
· LEAP Legal Software
All of them have their pros and cons.
Over the course of this blog we’ll keep you up to date on new products and changes in the Practice Management space. For example, Cloud Computing is likely to have an enormous impact on Practice Management tools and competition in the marketplace.
Tell us – which Practice Management tool does your firm use – are you happy – what do you think the Practice Management software industry should focus on to make life easier for legal professionals?
