One of Data Trust's Directors, John O'Shea, has been working continuously with the legal sector since 1993 and today imparts that knowledge and experience to his colleagues in the DataTrust team.
In fact, the legal profession figures as a particular area of expertise for DataTrust and indeed a significant chunk of our customer base are of the legal profession.
We can truly claim to have unsurpassed specific knowledge of the modern legal practice and whilst we can facilitate and work with application support from all the major legal applications out there e.g. CORTBase, Expd8, Documatics, Harvest Law, Legal and General etc. - we recommend the CORTBase for Legal Practice Management, Computerised Requisitions and Legal Practice Accounts.
In partnering with CORTBase, we have the confidence of knowing that we are partnering with a mature application provider born of the legal profession. Indeed, when the Law Society was, at the start, looking to recommend an application provider for Computerised Objections and Requisitions on Title - they chose CORTBase.
When John started working with solicitors and barristers, it was in an era when golf ball typewriters and word processors were being removed from practices and replaced by DOS-based machines running WordPerfect 5.1.
Whereas those that had word processors were, by now, used to being able to go back and correct what they had typed - this was a marvel for the typewriter fraternity.
The big new benefit, as well, of those early computers was the ability to store and reuse legal precedents and, of course, the computerised version of the Objections and Requisitions on Title for conveyancing.
The term "paperless office” was, at later stages, being bandied about as an objective but a Legal Practice Management solution did not yet exist.
Today, we have moved an awful lot nearer, to that original aspiration of the paperless office. Legal practice management is now the mainstay of the modern legal practice. Gone are the days when the fee earner was rushing around looking for a paper file, when his client rang looking for an update. Now, all received communication, including medical certs etc. are scanned and filed and don't need to be handled again, until they are needed in court. The Land Registry and Registry of Deeds (as the PRAI) are all online.
As a busy legal practice, backup is critical to our business. It is imperative that in the event of a system failure we can access all our files and client information immediately.
