Videss V9 to Insight Legal Data Migration

If you have software from Videss V9, we are able to provide a complete data migration to the Insight Legal System.

We have performed a number of highly successful data conversions from the Videss V9 system and would be happy to put you in touch with a number of our users who previously used Videss V9.

Videss were a highly successful Legal Practice Management supplier that targeted Larger Law firms. Their systems were based on the Progress 4GL combined database and programming language. In 2006 Videss was acquired by CS Group, which was in turn acquired by IRIS Group in 2007. In 2013 the IRIS Legal Division was acquired by Advanced Computer Software Group.

For a migration from Videss V9, we will want to complete a trial-run conversion prior to the live migration.

Videss V9 uses the Progress OpenEdge database which can be challenging to extract data from. Once we have a copy of your data we can run this through the routines that we previously created for V9 data conversions.

Once we have completed the trial run, we will install the Insight Legal Software and load a copy of the trial data for you and your staff to check and familiarise yourselves with.

The conversion process will include a number of translations of such things as fee earner codes, departments, matter types, charts of accounts, etc. These can all be modified as part of the conversion process and the trial run will give you and your staff the opportunity to consider if any changes to these are required.

A conversion from Videss V9 will include 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

The live conversion from Videss V9 will typically take three days to complete. During this time we can install the Insight Legal software onto all of your systems and train your staff. The training can be done on the trial run data so your staff can see exactly how the system will perform with your own data.

If you have documents stored in the Videss system, we will arrange with your IT firm for these to be migrated to the Insight system, so all of your case document histories are available as soon as the new system is Live.

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