Significant business growth prompts law firm to invest in innovative software

29 Nov 2018

Law firm Trethowans is revolutionising the way it stores and uses client and case information as part of a major IT upgrade that is taking place over the next few years.

The firm is investing heavily in its IT infrastructure as it expands its reach across the region. It plans to invest millions over the next two years to support its ambitious growth plans.
Trethowans’ latest investment in its IT comes in the form of a new contract with business software company, Linetime. The move will involve installing the innovative Liberate software suite, to be used by its workforce.

“We take great pride in providing high quality services to all our clients – whether they be in-dividuals or large corporate businesses,” said Trethowans’ finance director Andy Duckworth.
“This latest project is about ensuring we have the very best IT infrastructure in place. We see this partnership with Linetime – and the investment in Liberate – as an essential part of continuing and improving our service delivery.”

Trethowans chose Linetime following an intensive selection exercise – and will use the soft-ware company’s single database for accounts, case management and CRM. The project will also include links to the DocsCorp portfolio and SmartSearch AML checking, before further development of a sophisticated integration with the iManage DMS.

Linetime development director, Phil Snee, added: “Linetime welcomes Trethowans into the expanding community of Liberate users. This is a further powerful endorsement of the value of a single, combined solution.”

The investment in Linetime’s technology sits alongside a suite of other significant IT invest-ments being made by Trethowans. It works with Whiteley-based Taylor Made Computer So-lutions, which has created an IT strategy to help the law firm steer its actions and IT invest-ments as it continues to grow over the next few years.
