Birkett Long is a law firm based in Essex with offices in Basildon, Chelmsford, Colchester and London.
Focussed on people, clients, their team and business partners, and those in their local communities, Birkett Long has specialist lawyers, attorneys, independent financial advisers and human resource specialists that work in dedicated teams to offer clients the full range of legal advice, whether in business or at home.
Like most law firms, Birkett Long has experienced exponential growth in data across multiple sources and has learned that realising the value from that data using traditional line of business systems are time-consuming and complex.
Birkett Long required a way to unlock their valuable data in near real-time, providing a single easy-to-use visual solution to fee earners, team leaders, and partners to improve decision-making, optimise performance, and save time supporting the delivery of services to their clients.
Birkett Long has chosen Katchr Enterprise to provide a new data warehouse and dashboard environment to provide fast access to information and support the firm-wide financial education Birkett Long is implementing.
Choosing Katchr’s core modules, Birkett Long will receive a solution that supports fee earner performance, financial reporting, and compliance monitoring, as well as supporting business development by unlocking marketing opportunities from their own data.
David Bennett, IT Director of Birkett Long says: “The Katchr solution allows us to present the firm’s financial data alongside client and people information in a simple, meaningful way, essentially bridging the gap between a number of disparate systems .Having previously worked with Katchr, I know that they have the expertise and experience to help us enhance our immediate requirements and challenge us going forward.”
Graham Moore, Managing Director of Katchr added “We’re pleased that Birkett Long have chosen to partner with Katchr as their management information provider. Being UK-based for development and support and with our team’s decades of experience, we’re confident that Birkett Long will benefit quickly from our solution, and we’re looking forward to working with them.”
The Katchr solution is performance management and business analytics dashboard software and is currently used to support and drive change in approaching 100 law firms. Katchr has been developed with and for law firms and ensures that the data they have locked away is turned into actionable information for every member of the team at the touch of a button.
With proven integrations to all leading case and practice management systems, Katchr dashboards monitor all aspects of law firm performance including fee earner KPIs, marketing, case progress, risk and compliance, client-matter profitability and departmental P&L. Fully compatible with a smart phone and tablet, Katchr dashboard visualisations and reports can be tailored to each firm and help optimise every aspect of their business operations, marketing and pricing decisions.
