Barrister CMS

Innovative Case Management Software for Barristers

Barrister CMS is a cloud-based ‘Case Management Software’ system, designed to help Barristers run their practise more efficiently and maximize revenue. This is achieved through a host of innovative features, including document / email management, task and schedule tracking, contact management and also simplified billing.

 

Barristers are facing an overwhelming, ever-increasing volume of emails, e-Briefs and time-demanding tasks, all of which are expected to be completed within decreasing timeframes. This harsh workload, combined with strict new compliance regulations, makes it increasingly more difficult for the practising Barrister to stay in control of their daily duties.

 

By organising all case-related correspondence, documentation, emails and tasks into one centralised location for each individual case, Barrister CMS streamlines the workflow of practise information, provides vastly efficient billing routines, and also helps you stay compliant.
