FloSuite: Proudly serving the UK legal community
Here on Legal Current we often talk about how proud we are to offer solutions that serve our many subscribing legal organizations in the U.S., but just as important are our customers in the UK and Ireland. In fact, the case management and business process management solution FloSuite was proud to announce recently the addition of two significant clients in the UK legal sector: the Bar Standards Board and Blackadders Solicitors, who together have begun taking advantage of some of FloSuite’s strongest capabilities.
The Bar Standards Board (BSB) is an independent regulatory body responsible for overseeing more than 15,000 barristers in England and Wales. At the end of a competitive bidding process in June, they chose FloSuite legal’s case management system to replace their custom-built system for tracking complaints and disciplinary findings about barristers.
Blackadders Solicitors, based in Scotland, provides legal property and wealth management advice to individual and business clients. The firm selected the FloSuite Legal Client Matter Inception (CMI) module last month and will use the software to reduce its average file opening time by incepting new businesses more efficiently and eliminating the duplication effort associated with a manual inception process.
Both legal organizations cited the efficiency and flexibility of FloSuite software as key factors in their selection decisions.
“FloSuite Legal provides us with an accurate and timely system for tracking complaints and monitoring performance, which is a crucial part of our role as an effective and independent regulator of the profession,” said Dr. Vanessa Davies, director, Bar Standards Board.
Not only is FloSuite Legal capable of managing the BSB’s current requirements, but it can also evolve to meet entirely new processes likely to be introduced by the regulator in coming years. Blackadders also found this flexibility important in that they could seamlessly integrate FloSuite into their existing legacy systems and begin using it right away to improve on operational efficiency.
So far in 2013, Legal Current has been visited by more than 1,000 readers from the UK and hundreds of visitors from India, Canada and Australia.
