Eclipse Proclaim has become the leading digital case management system for Solicitors in England and Wales. The desire for a paperless office solution has become increasingly appealing and sought after for many law firms in light of reduced profit margins and increased overheads brought about by ongoing changes in the legal market. Shockingly however according to a survey by YouGov, in the UK SMEs still waste more than £42.2 million per day in revenues looking for documents. More alarming statistics brought to light by the survey were that;
- 92% of managers and directors surveyed waste time searching for paperwork each working day, with 80% losing up to an hour per day.
- Less than 25% of companies have a document management system in their company.
- A mere 7% of SMEs have a predominantly paperless office.
