Find the advantage you need to stand out from the competition, deliver more for clients and drive efficiencies. 

In the fast-paced legal sector, information must be always available and always accurate.

Unfortunately, compiling trustworthy forecasts, budgets and performance reports isn’t an easy task. That’s because data  is buried across the business in isolated silos, finance systems, CRM, ERP, and excel spreadsheets.

Getting the information you need, when you need it, is time-consuming, complicated and the resulting information is often unreliable.

So, you could continue with these old, slow and unreliable processes. Or you can call Barrachd.

How we helped Gowling WLG

Barrachd worked closely with one of the UK’s largest commercial law firms to create a powerful planning, budgeting and reporting solution tailored uniquely for the needs of the legal industry.

Gowling WLG is an international law firm with over 1,400 legal professionals and a presence in 19 cities worldwide. With a reputation for outstanding client service, data needs to be readily available to make the informed decisions that drive the firm’s performance.

The organisation’s previous financial planning, budgeting and reporting solution had become cumbersome, even before an international merger created a data challenge, where the two different systems were unable to work together.
