BRADFORD, England, April 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Eclipse Legal Systems, the Law Society's sole endorsed legal software provider, today announced the implementation of its Proclaim Practice Management Software solution at Walker Foster Solicitors.

The practice operates from offices across West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire and Lancashire, and prides itself on its reputation as a leading, local firm of expert solicitors. With an objective to provide clients with high quality and value-for-money legal services, fee earners strive to achieve pragmatic solutions to all client requirements.

In a 6-figure deal, the Proclaim Practice Management Software solution is being rolled out to 50 staff across the Conveyancing and Probate departments. Proclaim will provide fee earners with a centralised and consistent approach to case management - from instruction through to completion - whilst the accounting toolset will provide a detailed analysis of the firm's operations. Furthermore, Eclipse's Credit Control Centre will provide the practice with a central dashboard display of key financial and payment information, with the ability to drill directly into bills, clients and matters.

In addition, Walker Foster has opted for Eclipse's legal Compliance toolset. Fully integrated within Proclaim, users will have access to a number of tools - including a Risk Register, a configurable reporting system and a Compliance Library - to assist with the extensive obligations required by the SRA.

Keith Hardington, Managing Partner at Walker Foster Solicitors, comments:

"As an established and respected practice, we chose Eclipse's Proclaim system to meet our demands for a reliable and robust legal software solution that would scale with us as we grow. The integrated tools Eclipse offers to manage elements such as compliance further cemented our decision, and the overall solution will ensure we manage all elements of matter management efficiently and effectively on a day-to-day basis."
