Eclipse Proclaim to Insight Legal Data Migration

For firms using software from Eclipse Proclaim, you may be glad to know that we are able to provide a complete data migration to the Insight Legal System.

Proclaim is based on the Progress 4GL combined database and programming language. There are very few systems that continue to use the Progress platform and Eclipse are one of the few that still perseveres with this 4GL.

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

Conversion Process

As with most data conversions, we will run a trial run of the migration prior to the live conversion.

If you are running the Eclipse Proclaim software on your local machine or network, you can simply send us a copy of the database and we will take care of the data conversion. If you are running the hosted version then Eclipse Proclaim will be able to send you a copy of your database which you can then forward on to us here.

Along with the backup of your database, we will also require copies of your TB and a Matter List. This allows us to double check the balances are all correct on your newly migrated data.

The live conversion will usually take around three days to complete. This period is the perfect time for you and your staff to be trained on the Insight Legal software so you are ready to go from the moment it is live.

A conversion from Eclipse Proclaim will include at least all of the following data;

  • Clients
  • Matters
  • Matter Types
  • Introducer Codes
  • Banks
  • Fee Earners
  • Accounting Periods
  • Case Contacts
  • VAT Rates
  • Client/Matter Ledgers
  • Time Recording
  • Time Recording Activity Codes
  • Nominal Ledgers
  • Nominal Ledger Transactions
  • VAT Entries
  • Bank Transactions

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