Time capture specialist rekoop has announced details of its latest client win and go-live in Europe. Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira, Spain's top law firm, has recently rolled out the rekoop solution across multiple platforms to some 1000 users, integrating with the firm's SAP enterprise management system.
The project led with the introduction of rekoop for BlackBerry for all lawyers, and this has recently been followed up with the deployment of rekoop Desktop, the primary time recording interface; rekoop Digital Footprint, which monitors activity in the background and encourages more accurate, complete time capture through configurable prompts; and rekoop for iPad, in support of Cuatrecasas's 'Bring Your Own Device' policy (BYOD).
IT director Francesc Munoz is confident of a strong return on investment from the rekoop solution: “As I see it, we only need every individual to capture a few more minutes every day for rekoop to pay for itself many times over. This is the goal, to use it. For the first time, our lawyers have a really flexible, easy to use tool that is available wherever they need it - on their laptop, on the their BlackBerry, on their iPad. It's a common and friendly interface, everything is perfectly synched with our back-end. To capture time as they go has never been so simple. No two individuals are alike in the way they like to record time entries and one of rekoop's great strengths is that it lets the user choose how to interact with it - it doesn't impose a set way of working. For the Spanish lawyer, that is always going to be a key selling point!”
Phil Wedgwood, rekoop's chief executive, stresses the realities of the return on investment potential. “We've had clients turn around and tell us that our software has paid for itself in the first week. Project that over the course of a year and you can see the direct impact effective and efficient time recording can have on the bottom line. That's very much down to users wanting to engage with the system, rather than resist it - and that's why so much development effort has been poured into making it one seamless experience regardless of device. With BYOD starting to influence IT strategy more keenly, we expect the multi-platform operation enjoyed by Cuatrecasas to become very much the norm.”
