Functionality, ease of use, and interaction with team at Wilson cited as top deciding factors
NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA (July 24, 2018) – Wilson Legal Solutions, a leading provider of software and services that help professional services organizations improve business performance, today announced that Mills & Reeve, a leading UK law firm that provides comprehensive legal advice to businesses and individuals, has selected Wilson Proforma Tracker software to enhance its billing workflow, collaboration, and efficiency.
Like most businesses today, Mills & Reeve is actively managing its technology infrastructure to stay current with the latest trends and to realize the benefits enabled by ongoing innovation. The firm runs Firmware as its financial and accounting system and is preparing to make the transition to the Thomson Reuters Elite 3E system. As part of the transition planning process, Mills & Reeve needed to identify an alternative to a custom application it had built in-house to manage its online billing processes. The application is not compatible with 3E and rather than rebuild it, the firm decided to explore if an existing software solution could replace it.
Iain Cushion, IT director at Mills & Reeve, as well as other members of the firm met with a team from Wilson Legal Solutions to discuss Wilson’s certified 3E implementation services and the Wilson Proforma Tracker application. After participating in several demos of Wilson Proforma Tracker, it became clear that the software met the firm’s requirements to replace its custom-built application.
“When we signed up for 3E, we also started researching our options to replace our proforma solution,” Cushion says. “After an intensive review, it became clear that Wilson Proforma Tracker has the best functionality and interface for our purposes. We’re also keen about what’s on the horizon in the software’s roadmap.”
In addition to the software’s functionality and ease of use, Mills & Reeve appreciated its interactions with representatives from Wilson Legal Solutions. “We really liked the way the team at Wilson worked with us during our selection process,” Cushion explains. “The team is very knowledgeable from a technical perspective and from a functional one as well. Plus, they’re very open to our questions and suggestions. But the software is what really wowed us. It looks just fantastic and is so easily adopted. People in our billing department and their fee earners commented that they wish they were already using it.”
The Wilson Proforma Tracker implementation is planned to be ready to roll out to firmwide users aligned with Mills & Reeve’s 3E go-live.
