The database at the heart of LawWare keeps you fully up to speed on the progress of all your cases and gives you alerts when certain key stages or key costs of the case come around.

It gives you complete control over case management and is a cornerstone of helping you run your business efficiently.

Cash Accounting and Compliance.

Once the core of any computer system in a legal office, and even now still reason enough in itself to implement LawWare, the integrated Accounts module is a real revelation in ease and flexibility of use. LawWare Accounts offers a straightforward interface with some of the most sophisticated reporting facilities available on the market.

While most solutions currently available have started as a basic Accounts package that is then tailored to meet the legal requirements, LawWare Accounts was designed from scratch specifically to offer an integrated accounts solution for Legal Firms, utilising the central Relational Database that powers LawWare, thereby ensuring that Accounts information is available and utilised through all modules of LawWare rather than being confined to the Cashroom.

Real-time information.

LawWare uniquely provides your accounting information on a real-time basis. Thus allowing all authorised users access to information that is as up-to-date as possible.

Gone are the days of a Cashroom being a day (or more) behind in posting your accounts entries, with critical financial data being out of date.

In are the days of your Cashroom posting entries real-time and users having access to accounts data immediately. Indeed, the flexibility of a LawWare system allows trained alternative staff, with the relevant security privileges, to act as relief cashiers. This can be done from any PC when your Cashroom is under pressure, avoiding a crisis over accounts information.

With LawWare, subject to designated access rights, all users can access accounts details on-screen. They can prepare detailed accounts statements, check credit limits and perform detailed financial analysis according to their access authorisations. Imagine instead of waiting for the Cash room to give you a copy of a client’s ledger, being able to access the details at the touch of a button, or, a partner being able to generate vital & up-to-date financial reports from their own PC. All this is possible with the LawWare Accounts module as part of the LawWare Integrated Practice Management Solution.
