With a view to consolidating multiple technologies within its firm, Wright Hassall has chosen Linetime to act as its united Practice Management Solution.

Established in 1846 and employing over 250 people, Wright Hassall thoroughly reviewed the market, looking to bring a disparate number of systems and databases into one solution. The firm identified the inefficiencies inherent in managing different databases, setting itself the challenge to find a progressive technology provider offering an all-in-one solution to support fee earner effectiveness, improve business information and connect the services required by the firm.

Linetime, recently acquired by PracticeEvolve Group, offers rich enterprise level software featuring Practice Management, Document Management and Accounts Management to over 110 mid-tier firms nationwide, a number which continues to grow.

James Hamilton, Head of IT at Wright Hassall comments, “We have to work towards a single source of the truth in terms of databases. Having distributed databases and multiple suppliers is impractical and inefficient, when working to be a leaner operation. Managing different software, databases and servers is resource heavy and all the work that goes into connecting them together requires technical and management resource to maintain the systems and generate performance reports. Our aim is to use their time to focus on projects that help grow the business”.

James continues, “For Wright Hassall, bringing everything into one system, Linetime, consolidates PMS, CMS, Time Recording, CRM, Business Intelligence and more, all within a single system. This holistic approach enables us to manage our business rather than the software.”

David Boland, CEO at Linetime comments, “We are delighted to be working with Wright Hassall. Wright Hassall retains a reputation when it comes to technology adoption and I believe the firm understands how the legal world is beginning to embrace this new era of technology”.

David continues, “Aside from the software, there was an excellent connection between the people involved in the process. Wright Hassall focuses on its individuals and at Linetime, we have the same ethos. There’s a real ‘can do, will do’ attitude which will go a long way towards a seamless implementation. These are very exciting times for both Wright Hassall and Linetime.”
