• Leap – Our new computer system

    Posted on March 8, 2012 at 3:21 pm under Family Law category.

    I thought it would be good to let people know about our new computer system as there are some great benefits to our clients which I’d like to explain.

    Our firm spent a significant amount of money on changing completely our computer system as we recognised that we needed to update it. After extensive research we chose to go with the software known as Leap which was developed in Sydney by an Australian. Leap allows us to now control our files electronically.

    For example when we receive a letter from another solicitor or documents for a client we can scan those documents into our clients’ electronic folder which can then be e-mailed directly to them. This means that when I receive my mail in the morning my clients have any correspondence I have received on their behalf within minutes. This gives an enormous saving to clients and we can respond significantly quicker.

    From the lawyers perspective we are given access to precedents and research material. They have an interesting feature where we are able to contact the author of the document or precedent to seek advice or to suggest any changes. This interaction can be particularly valuable.

    I am the “champion” within the office for Leap so much so that I recently did a video for them which is linked to this blog.

    Speak with you later
