Automating Monthly Report Date Changes: Case Study

Proclaim Case Study

The Problem

As with many firms the client was heavily reliant on management information being accurate and accessible so that they could make informed strategic decisions.

The firm required automatic monthly reports which required the start and end date of the months to be changed each month. It was becoming a time-consuming admin task for the management of the firm to ensure that all of their reports would run on a month-by-month timeline as they would have to spend time updating the dates manually and often some would be missed.


The Solution

LPS developed an algorithm within Proclaim that would automatically calculate when the start and end date of that calendar month would be.


The Benefit

The automation algorithm completely removed an arduous task from the managers of the firm, which gives them more time to focus on assessing the management information itself and the multitude of other duties they performed.

Furthermore, it ensured no reports were missed in respect of updating the dates and consequently the managers could be confident that they would have the management information they needed, when they needed it.

Additionally, this algorithm has also been used throughout the firms proclaim system itself, such as within the billing departments.

"Since we first began utilising the services of Legal Practice Support, we have seen a dramatic improvement in the capabilities of our Proclaim system. The system has seen substantial enhancements with regards to automation; tasks that previously could take staff hours, can now be completed within minutes."

Mark Brierley

"Prior to their (Legal Practice Support) involvement, we had little to no reporting; and what we did have was generally manually accumulated data on spreadsheets. Since Legal Practice Support began enhancing our system, they have enabled us to receive key management information as and when required, which allows us to evaluate key areas of the business, as well as provide overviews of fee earners' case progression and their performance amongst other things."
