Cloud-based practice management tool released for NZ law industry

01 Sep 2015

A new cloud-based practice management tool has been released by Thomas Reuters, a legal information and solutions provider.  The company says the tool, Firm Central, has the potential to 'revolutionise' the way law professionals operate. 

Firm Central was developed specifically for the needs of smaller legal practices, the company says, and is the only cloud-based practice management tool in the market that integrates with essential business applications such as legal research tools, time and billing, document production and Outlook calendars.

“We pride ourselves on the fact that our products and solutions are developed in response to the challenges and issues facing our customers,” says Haydn Davies, Thomson Reuters NZ country manager.

“We understand that smaller legal practices are often challenged by lack of time and resources, and often have to make do with practice management tools that may be manual or unsupported.”

James Boocock, general manager for Legal Solutions at Thomson Reuters Australia and New Zealand, adds, “Firm Central removes these inefficiencies, seamlessly integrating into a lawyer’s working day, helping them to operate more smartly, and improving profitability along the way.

He says, “To put it simply, there is no better or more powerful tool available in the market.”

The tool contains a range of features aimed at helping professionals achieve more for less, as well as streamlining their existing workflow processes and driving firm-wide efficiencies.
