Pinkney Grunwells selects Proclaim Practice Management solution from Eclipse

Leading regional law firm Pinkney Grunwells is set to implement the Proclaim Practice Management solution from Eclipse, the Law Society Endorsed legal software provider.

Established in 1938, the Yorkshire-based firm boasts offices in Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby, Driffield and Hunmanby, and has been offering direct and honest legal advice to local residents and businesses since its inception.

Providing a wide range of services including Conveyancing, Family and Probate, Pinkney Grunwells sought to replace its incumbent systems with a single solution geared towards firm-wide case management and practice financials. The firm selected a fully integrated Proclaim Practice Management Software solution.

As part of the project, Eclipse is carrying out a conversion of both case and accounting data from the practice’s incumbent systems.

To further streamline the conveyancing process, the firm will utilise Proclaim’s integration with the Land Registry Business Gateway (LRBG). This enables users to seamlessly interact with the Gateway from the Proclaim desktop environment. Tasks such as property enquiries and bankruptcy searches can be completed without leaving Proclaim.

The firm is taking advantage of Proclaim’s ready-to-go probate workflow which automatically completes all relevant forms including the IHT400 – ensuring sensitive matters are managed properly, accurately, and with no distractions.

Daniel Boynton, Operations Manager at Pinkney Grunwells, comments:

“Our clients’ expectations are becoming increasingly high, it’s key that we exceed these demands to set us apart from the competition. Proclaim will enable us to build on our operational effectiveness and re-invest time saved in enhancing our client’s experience.”
