In today’s competitive marketplace, it is essential that you have the best IT systems in place. You need this to meet client demands and your firm’s operational needs.

You need to know that you can focus on what you are good at – the art of delivering high quality legal services and looking after your clients, without needing to be concerned about the availability and reliability of your technology infrastructure and systems.

A good Cloud system should:-

  1. Introduce Flexible working by enabling a work from anywhere capability.
  2. Increase staff morale & help you to attract and retain quality staff by demonstrating your investment in the latest technology and commitment to the business.
  3. Simplify your technology, by reducing, even removing the need to manage a complicated on premise server. Eradicate the expensive 5 year server replacement cycle.
  4. Enjoy the real peace of mind knowing that backups are taken care of. Rest assured you have a ready-made, in-built disaster recovery plan in place as a by-product of the Cloud service.
  5. Minimize downtime and Maximise business continuity. In the event of a local failure or force majeure disaster prohibiting access to your offices by enabling the facility to connect to your systems from any internet enabled location.

Another great customer service experience from LawWare. My laptop had to be stripped back to factory settings as part of a repair - taking hours! In contrast, restoring LawWare took one phone call to the support team and I was up and running in 6 minutes. If only everything was so easy!

The helpdesk is exceptionally good. Whatever the query there is always a human being there to help. No leaving messages or being advised to go to a website. The best computer service for solicitors I have ever used!

The linking of documents and casefiles saves so much time! I have experience of several accounts packages and I like that LawWare is simple to use and easy to learn. Support is quick and effective and staff are helpful and courteous.

I have worked with a number of Case Management providers over the years but have not come across anything with the attention to detail and thoroughness of LawWare. My colleagues and I have not been disappointed.

I can’t imagine trying to be a law firm in the 21st Century without 21st Century IT systems. Having a ‘single system’ that underpins all the work, whether we are in the office or out, is an integral part of what we are building.

The level of support is the main benefit using this system.  The system itself once you have had training is simple and easy to use. We have a great relationship with LawWare and the ongoing support is second to none.

Significant preparation was required to configure and import the data from our old firm. We had to get all clients onto the new system and then learn how to use it. We just find it very easy to use, much easier than our old system.

Being a busy litigator with a growing firm it is incredibly useful to be able to view my files from any location with some form of internet connection. I am a fan, and want to keep working with LawWare to make a good product great.

The switch to the new LawCloud system, which is still on-going, has gone very well. We found the LawWare team without exception to be very helpful and knowledgeable. All queries are followed up and dealt with promptly.
