Latimer Hinks have announced the selection of Linetime to continue improving efficiencies across the firm, citing how the legal business management software was highly recommended throughout the selection process.

Based in Darlington, but operating predominantly in the North East of England and North Yorkshire, Latimer Hinks 40 strong team have been providing specialist and bespoke services in private client, commercial and residential property and agricultural law for more than 125 years.

Linetime, recently acquired by PracticeEvolve Group, offer rich enterprise level software featuring Practice Management, Document Management and Case Management to over 120 mid-tier firms nationwide, a number which continues to grow.

Elizabeth Armstrong, Solicitor and Managing Director at Latimer Hinks, comments on the need to obtain recommendations from the market, “Selecting software that enables us to manage and grow the business is a minefield. With the market changing rapidly, software suppliers need to demonstrate flexibility and adaptability and, importantly, have an ability to prove it. Only that way can we be sure the software matches our needs now and for the future. Linetime came highly recommended by others and we were not disappointed throughout the process.”

Elizabeth continues, “As Latimer Hinks continues to expand, we want to reduce the reliance on paper. For example, both our file opening and billing processes are paper heavy. Linetime were able to demonstrate how the business management software will streamline this and more. At the same time, we have become accustomed to working more flexibly and remotely which is key in terms of improving the levels of service we can offer our clients and extending our reach. Linetime demonstrated how integrations with other software will help us make greater strides here and achieve efficiency and cost savings, allowing us to focus more on the business rather than the software.”

Charles Myers, BDM at Linetime comments, “I’m delighted Latimer Hinks have selected Linetime and it’s fantastic to hear we are being recommended in the market. The software has a fantastic reputation built up over a number of years, but importantly, having joined PracticeEvolve Group, we are now able to combine this with a real, long term future for firms via our pathway to the Cloud. This is a hugely significant development for Linetime and our clients, as it will enable us to continue to fulfil their requirements in the short, medium and longer term.”
