AlphaLAW esprit plus to Insight Legal Data Migration

We have already carried out a number of complete data migrations from AlphaLAW esprit plus to the Insight Legal System.

AlphaLAW esprit plus was produced by AlphaLAW in the mid 2000s. It was intended to fill a perceived gap in the market for a product in between the entry-level AlphaLAW esprit system and the higher-end AlphaLAW Vantage system. Although not as feature-rich as the AlphaLAW Vantage system, it is based entirely on the same code base as AlphaLAW Vantage and shares the same Microsoft SQL Server database structure.

We have performed a number of highly successful data conversions from the AlphaLAW esprit plus system and would be happy to put you in touch with a number of our users who previously used AlphaLAW esprit plus.

Conversion Process

A conversion from AlphaLAW esprit plus will include all of the following data;

  • Clients

  • Introducer Codes
  • Banks
  • Fee Earners
  • Accounting Periods
  • VAT Rates
  • Client/Matter Ledgers

Live Conversion

As we have carried out a number of conversions from the AlphaLAW esprit plus system, we are confident that we can perform the live conversion without needing a trial run first. Of course, we are more than happy to do a trial run for your own peace-of-mind if you would like see exactly how all of your data will look in Insight Legal prior to the live conversion.

Simply send us a backup of your AlphaLAW esprit plus database and we can take care of the migration. Along with the data backup, please send a copy of your trial balance and the totals from your matter listing report so that we can check all of the converted balances match those prior to the migration. The live conversion usually takes one to two days to complete. This is often an ideal time to train your staff in the operation of the Insight Legal System so they are all ready to start working with it as soon as the conversion is complete.

When you’re dealing with the experts, it doesn’t have to be expensive and it doesn’t need to be a hassle.
