Advanced ALB Legal Software

It has all you need built in right out of the box with all the core features you'd expect; Client Matter Inception process, Time Recording, Diary, Customisable Workflow modules, Billing, etc. Then there's all the extra modules which other products don't necessarily have; Wills and Deeds databases, Purchase Ledger (Accounts and Cashiers love everything to do with the accounts side), Laserform Integration, pdfDocs integration, OverVu integration for easy reporting.

Inevitably there will be compromises as with any piece of software. Especially one that covers off so many angles. The development tools could be stronger, the way addresses are handled seems to me to be overly complex. Having said that though, the software's primary purpose is to help Fee Earners and support staff provide services to clients and it does this admirably. You can't expect Visual Studio. I've seen users make a mess of the simplest of address databases with strong training provided so it might not be to my taste but I imagine they didn't develop it for fun.

My biggest gripe with the software is that some errors look severe. Other software would trap them in a more gentle manner. However, users quickly adjust to this and Advanced do some very clear monitoring to reduce them as the product mores forward.

Law firms needing an easy to use billing and accounting systems. [SurePoint Legal Management System (LMS)] would work for law firms of all sizes. It does not work well for matter pricing or profitability analysis.

Pros

Advanced ALB Legal Software

  • Time recording is also a useful feature as well as a little more intuitive than you'd expect.
  • Integrating legal accounting has been a great feature as well.

Cons

Advanced ALB Legal Software

  • At times the dashboard and User Experience and User Interface do not follow a logical pathway. It can be confusing at times, but not extremely detrimental.
  • The client portal has also experienced some issues with the User interface and user experience functions as well.

The usability is slightly above average. The all-in-one approach has been great and useful, but some of the functionality and user experience and user interface issues can affect usability. Some might be nitpicky, but not following logical pathways or ones that may pose issues for those that have disabilities can really create issues.

The support, if we are talking about technical support with the product itself when issues arise, is average. It's not terrible, but not great either. It is average and what you might expect. Some issues are delayed in getting responses and we constantly have to be upgrading to higher tiers or developers. Some responses are quick though. Response time could be improved, much like other organizations.

Alternatives Considered

Advanced ALB Legal Software

ALB Legal Software is a more efficient product than MyCase and PracticePanther mostly for the integration it allows and the "all in one" approach that it takes. It takes several different areas and functions of legal practice and puts in one platform eliminating the need to leverage 2-3 platforms sometimes i.e. timekeeping, document management, mobile access, client portal, etc. Keeping it under one roof helps.

SurePoint Legal Management System (LMS)

LMS Practice Management provides a wealth of features not often found in one package. Its information visualization tools and client management tools are extremely helpful in providing oversight on client billing matters. Its reporting tools were also fairly robust, providing more features than competitor products on the markets. While not perfect, its clean interface and number of components help make it stand out among the competition
