Proclaim practice management software is utilised by over 25,000 professionals and is endorsed by the law society. The basic version of Proclaim is designed mainly to assist with the process management of law firms. One of the main benefits of the system is that Proclaim is easily adapted to your exact requirements to meet the needs of your law firm.
The Proclaim Development team at Legal Practice Support specialise in taking the out-of-box Proclaim case management software and developing it to your firm’s bespoke needs. This helps to ensure you streamline your processes and maximise the efficiency and profitability potential of your staff.
The key Proclaim software development areas include MI Reports, automation, workflow optimistation, IT system Integration and bulk data solutions.
What is the Out-of-Box Proclaim Software?
When Proclaim is first installed, users have a generic system with basic functionality for automating tasks and producing basic management reports. Eclipse have produced modified versions of the software for different clients in the past, however, the basic software provides an excellent starting point for improving the efficiency of your law firm. It allows users digital access to all case documents and reduces allowance on paper. It also creates data points which can later be analysed for activity.
What else can the Software Do?
Many users of Proclaim don’t realise the potential of the software, and the applications to which it can be extended to. The basic Proclaim software can provide such advantages to traditional paper practices that often, further development is overlooked. Continuing to invest in developing the software ensures that your team continually increase their efficiency and profitability. It is no surprise that the most profitable law firms are also those which are embracing technology.
We detail on our central Proclaim Development page the main areas which can be developed.
Key Proclaim Software Development Areas
MI Reports: Analyse what key tasks are being completed and which are not as well as what stages your entire caseload is at. Yield important management information such as WIP, number of files, lifespan of cases and profitability.
Automation: Remove repetitive nature type tasks and allow standard templates to be created. Ensure the client experience is improved with automated updates at relevant case stages, and minimise the risk of errors.
Workflow Optimisation: Ensure case types follow a set, approved and compliant process. This improves both the client journey and ensures adherence to pre-action protocols and Court deadlines.
IT System Integration: Integrate third party systems into your software. Data can be exported and imported automatically or at the click of a button. This saves vasts amounts of time on re-keying data into your own system manually.
Bulk Data Solutions: Utilise databases within Proclaim to manage your bulk data analysis. This also prevents the risk of data loss being an issue.

Satisfied Client Stories
“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.”
“We have had the out of the box Proclaim system for many years and whilst we were content with its performance it wasn’t until we utilised the services of Legal Practice Support to help streamline and automate our workflows that we really saw its potential to save time and money by maximising the efficiency of our workflows.”
