Trowers & Hamlins' three-into-one database challenge
With offices in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Exeter, the Middle East and a representative office in Asia, Trowers & Hamlins maintains an ethos of bringing local knowledge to domestic and international issues.
Their focus on the unique needs of each individual client, combined with regional differences in working practices, had resulted in 200 million rows of case and accounts data stored across disparate databases and multiple versions of branch-specific case workflow. Whilst everything worked like clockwork on a case-by-case basis, consolidating information at specific periods of the fiscal calendar for routine accounting processes, or data gathering for management reporting purposes, presented serious challenges.
Legal software specialists, Civica, embarked on the LME (London, Manchester and Exeter) project with trademark enthusiasm and thoroughness.
Civica were able to bring their skills and experience to bear on this significant, complex finance and IT project"
