For firms using software from LEAP, you may be glad to know that we are able to provide a complete data migration to the Insight Legal System.
Leap is an Australian company that have recently come to the UK. To gain market share, Leap bought a number of existing small software suppliers and discontinued support their products.
Leap is a multi-tenanted web browser based Case Management application. Being web based causes complications when a client of Leap require copies of their data. As there is no single database containing a firm’s own data, Leap are not able to provide a complete backup of the firm’s data. Instead, they suggest that the client produces and exports a series of reports from the Leap reporting web page. This is not ideal but it is still possible to use this data for a conversion.
The Leap system does not include functionality for the firm’s own accounts and in this respect it differs from most mainstream legal practice management software. To run a firm, the Leap system has to have a generic accounting product such as Xero ‘bolted’ on. The Leap system and Xero manage a degree of integration but this still falls well short of a complete legal accounts and practice management system. The data from the Leap system will be combined with that from Xero to create a single integrated set of data for your firm.
We have performed many highly successful data conversions from the LEAP system and would be happy to put you in touch with a number of our users who previously used LEAP.
