About DPS Software’s Public Sector Solutions

Having successfully worked with private sector law firms for over 30 years, in 2016, DPS Software ventured into the public sector and began developing software for lawyers in local government.

Working with our first client in the sector, LGSS Law, we developed a full suite of software to enable local authority legal departments to operate more efficiently and profitably.

We understand the pressures being faced by local authorities to reduce costs and to show the value of their work to the authority. With this understanding, we have built software that enables managers of public organisations to access all of the data that they will need to show how well their department is working and where they can make improvements.

All in all, local authorities and those operating using an ABS structure can find themselves at a great advantage by making greater use of the technology available to them.

You can find out more about this by watching ‘Public Sector Solutions’ a TV show appearing on SKY TV. You can watch the show here.

How DPS Spitfire can help your Local Authority Legal Department be more efficient

It is important for local authority legal departments to operate at peak efficiency and using DPS Spitfire can help you to do that. Our case management system is completely browser based, so you don’t have to install anything locally and can access your files from any device with a web browser.

This means you can work from anywhere with an internet connection (which, nowadays, is everywhere), so you can get a head start on your work while out of the office. You can manage your emails and diary, generate and complete forms in seconds and submit e-chits to your accounts team.

As your email, case management and legal accounts package (if you need it) is all integrated into one system, it saves you the time of having to use separate systems, but also means that everything works together seamlessly. Incoming and outgoing emails are automatically stored against the case file. If a new email comes in, you can go to that matter’s case file in just the click/tap of a button. You can see the full case history and financial information on a particular case at any given time, all from a single screen.

And the best part about all of this is that it has been tailored to the specific needs of a local authority legal department. We have in-built workflows, which provide you with all of the forms that you will need, that can be automatically completed with information you have already entered, preventing any double entry and duplication of work. But if any of this doesn’t match the way you can work, you have the power to change it.

DPS Spitfire is a Microsoft Azure product, so naturally integrates with Office 365, however, Spitfire will also integrate with Google’s G Suite, so whichever you use, DPS Spitfire will fit your organisation.
