22 law firms on legacy platforms upgrade to Aderant expert and Aderant total office
Citing a strong client community, responsive customer support and comprehensive, well-designed products, firms choose to remain with Aderant. Aderant, the world’s largest independent legal software company, announced today that since January 2014, four law firms on legacy Aderant products have successfully migrated to one of the company’s current solutions. Additionally, another 11 firms are currently in the migration process, taking advantage of their trusted relationship with Aderant and its proven expertise in legal software and law firm management, dedication to client service and thriving user community. Over the past two years, 22 clients on legacy Aderant solutions or acquired products such as RainMaker, Omega and Javelan, have elected to remain in the Aderant product family, selecting Aderant Expert or Total Office as their practice and/or financial management system.
Some firms, such as Offit Kurman and MacDonald, Illig, Jones & Britton LLP, who are both currently in the process of migrating from RainMaker Platinum, decided on the Aderant Expert solution for its robust functionality and ability to increase firm profitability. Moreover, both firms cited the solid relationship they’ve had with the company since Aderant’s acquisition of RainMaker Software in 2011 as a determining factor in their choice.
'We didn’t really look at other solutions,' shares MacDonald, Illig, Jones & Britton Firm Administrator Terrence Moore. 'We looked at others over the years, but were never really impressed with their solutions. Aderant has always provided us with good service and support, and we are looking forward to continuing that tradition.' Aaron Bukowitz, COO for Offit Kurman is looking forward to their migration to Expert, scheduled for spring 2015. 'In the past seven years, Offit Kurman has tripled in size,' he comments. 'With constant changes and massive growth, we need a solution that is able to keep up with the demands of the ever-changing industry and constantly improving to better meet our needs. We look forward to the functionality Aderant Expert offers to help us grow, be more efficient and make better business decisions.'
Last month, Fox Horan & Camerini LLP went live on Aderant Total Office, migrating from the RainMaker Pyramid platform they had been using for 15 years. The Total Office solution is fully configurable and will increase the firm’s productivity and profitability by configuring views, information and workflows to meet the specific needs of different users.
Robbin Wemyss, vice president of global professional services at Aderant, commented that, 'the legal industry is moving so fast that firms are almost paralysed because they are fearful that they’re going to make the wrong decision.' Wemyss continued, 'we have a large legacy customer base and want to make sure migration into our Expert or Total Office lines is as painless as possible. We know change is hard. But we also know that change is good and the right solution can make a dramatic impact on a firm’s profitability and success.'
