Lawpro to Insight Legal Data Migration

If you are currently using Lawpro from Pace Professional Systems (Pacepro), you can rest assured that we can provide a comprehensive data migration to the Insight Legal System.

The Pace Professional Systems was formed in March 2002.  Their Lawpro software system was written in Microsoft Access . More recently, Pace added the option to use the more saleable and resilient Microsoft SQL Server database instead of Access.

The products set was sold in England by a sales partner Lawpro Legal Systems.

The company was later bought by Peapod Legal Office in October 2012 and subsequently became part of LEAP when Peapod were acquired by LEAP in 2014.

Conversion Process

We would recommend a trial run data conversion is performed prior to the live Lawpro migration.  To arrange a trial run, get in touch and send us a backup of your database.

A typical conversion from Lawpro will include at least all of the following data;

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

Once we have completed the trial we will install the Insight Legal software with a copy of the converted data for you to check and see for yourself what a complete data conversion will be like. If any amendments to things like departments, fee earner codes, time recording activities or nominal structure are required, these can be implemented in the live conversion.

The live conversion will usually take two to three days to complete and check. During this time you can continue to use the Lawpro system if you wish either for viewing only or for entering transactions. If you do make any transactions during the conversion, these will need to be re-posted on Insight. The period during the live conversion offers a good time to complete training for the firm’s staff. Our training can be done either remotely in small chunks or on site for one or more days.

Once the conversion is completed we will install the data, then you can run your own checks and you will be live with your new system.

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