TikitTFB Win Another FoxPro Upgrade
Nottingham-based firm, Marchants Solicitors, has become the latest FoxPro client to sign up with TikitTFB, after choosing Partner for Windows in favour of the upgrade being offered by IRIS. Like many FoxPro clients, the firm decided to review market alternatives prior to support for the FoxPro system withdrawing in July 2011. The 25 user firm had only been utilising accounts and client and matter creation in FoxPro, and were billing for crime work manually. They have chosen Partner for Windows to improve their case management capability using the systems advanced workflow, document and email management functionality. This will allow the firm to create bespoke workflows, enhance document creation and storage, and automate their criminal billing processes, creating significant efficiencies within the practice. Mike Cummins of Marchants comments, 'We needed to move up a level or two with our use of IT and the withdrawal of support for our FoxPro System was an obvious trigger to look for something fresh. We liked what we saw with Partner for Windows and it ticked all the right boxes. It will help to develop how we leverage IT to our advantage and as a result we expect to see an improvement in our accounting and time recording capabilities, file and case management, and the production of management reports.' In other news, three more firms have chosen Partner for Windows as their preferred case and practice management system in the past month. These are HR consultancy hr180 based in Yorkshire, Pembrokeshire firm Darwin Bowie and Property Lawyers Direct based in Leicestershire. In addition, London-based JD Law LLP has recently gone live with their Partner for Windows system.
