Another record year for Eclipse Legal Systems as turnover hits 8m

The UK’s leading Case Management Software provider, Eclipse Legal Systems, has reported record results for its 2010/11 trading year.

The firm’s previous best results came in 2009/10, when the audited turnover figure stood at £6.6million. The financial year 2010/11, which ended on 30th June, saw Eclipse announce a revenue increase of 21% to a record high of £8million.

Highlights from the 2010/11 period include:

– Record performance in terms of new client wins – 104 across all sectors, not including existing client upgrades and extensions

– More than 3,000 Proclaim end-user licence sales, bringing the total Proclaim user figure to over 14,000

– A management restructure to expand the Eclipse board to 5 members, maximising responsiveness to client needs and technological developments

– The total staff number exceeding 100 (as of 11th July 2011, Eclipse employs 105 staff)

Eclipse’s founder and Chief Software Architect, Steve Ough, comments on the firm’s performance:

“In the first eleven days of this new financial year (2011/12) we have already signed up 6 new client firms, one of them being a six-figure contract. In my opinion, this relays an extremely powerful message – that the fantastic results just announced for 2010/11 are a springboard for further growth and success. We are not resting on our laurels. We are expanding right across the board – in our development, support, and relationship management functions – and we will strive to continue giving law firms what they need. Robust, scalable, flexible, future-proof solutions that provide real value and real bottom-line benefits.”
