Aderant

Cloud-based and on-premise legal case management solution

About Aderant

Aderant is a cloud-based and on-premise legal case management solution that enables law firms and professional services organizations to streamline processes related to billing, accounting, calendar scheduling, docketing, and more. Professionals can utilize the platform to manage general ledgers, access transaction details, and generate custom reports.

Key features of Aderant include budgeting, forecasting, knowledge management, risk mitigation, and trigger alerts. It allows law firms to manage cash, checks, and bank account balances, monitor the entire time entry lifecycle, create expense claims, and calculate billable hours by tracking interactions via email. It lets users store information related to billing, contacts, and more in a centralized repository, and import or export data across third-party systems via integration. Professionals can gain visibility into profitability metrics, past performances, and other important metrics.

Aderant helps law firms retrieve client information, analyze search trends via reports, manage legal calendars, and calculate the due dates of cases using rule-based configurations. It lets users track payment and invoice statuses on a dashboard, maintain compliance with client billing guidelines and automatically send electronic bills to third-party spend management systems.

Pros

I enjoy how I am able to keep track of time and managing the billing system with ease.

Dont like that we must shut down the system in its entirety to run the bills but, only done for a small amount of time.

Overall positive. The core app is solid and works well. The newer Services Framework apps are now maturing to be good. The overall direction of travel with the product is encouraging.

Pros

It covers all aspects of legal practice for firms of a certain size. It is solid as a core for building a legal practice And easily customisable to handle localisation. Allows augmentation using the core data and has a well documented data dictionary which helps with custom reporting and BI.

Cons

Upgrades are challenging and QA needs to improve.

Complexity can be daunting making it harder to fully skill up technical teams.

Overall aderant was great for a case management database and keeping track of some tasks and duties.

Pros

Aderant was very basic in the way that our office used it. You did not have to worry about the system being boggled down or overwhelmed by unnecessary data or shortcuts because it was very simply laid out.

Cons

We weren't able to update it and modify it to grow with our company. It did not have any associated reporting features.

Limited Customization is the Biggest Problem

We have used the software since 2010 and it was Client Profiles. When Aderant took over the company there have been some upgrades but not many. Some needed features were taken away and others that are not very useful were added. Our biggest issue is that there is little to no customization on the screens you need to customize and the things that need fixed take forever to get done in a patch which is unacceptable for clients to have to "live" with problems for months to a year. Another issue is that they provide you with a reporting system but when you need help with it, they charge you an expensive fee per hour to talk to you. You cannot provide a software for someone to use and just turn them loose with no training on it at all. They are currently revamping the software to a web-based version with many more customizations. We will see where this goes. I am optimistic

Pros

Ease of use, customer service has definitely improved

Cons

Limited on customizations and software is definitely not made for mass tort.

We have used Aderant for several years. Aderant on the go is backwards. The fields are opposite the fields on the desktop version which is very frustrating

Pros

It is pretty intuitive and the fields are easy to navigate

Cons

It seems clunky at times and you cannot sync your ex mails to have them entered as time
