Heightened demand for new Cape Diem Next Generation demonstrates law firm need for timekeeping innovation
London and Chicago – May 19, 2016 – Tikit, a leading provider of technology solutions and services to legal and accountancy firms globally, today announced increased demand for its Carpe Diem timekeeping solution.
Within the last 10 months, more than 25 law firms in North America and the UK have chosen Tikit’s latest Carpe Diem Next Generation solution as either an upgrade or a new acquisition. New Tikit timekeeping customers include London-based Capsticks , Carey cl, Chilean largest firm, and Canada’s DeGrandpre Chait, with another 20 + firms already upgraded or in the process resulting in over 10,000 live users on Carpe Diem’s next generation platform.
The evolution of Tikit Carpe Diem Next Generation, a completely re-engineered, intuitive, functionally-rich timekeeping solution, is the culmination of multi-million dollar investments made by Tikit parent company BT in 2013-14, and demonstrates Tikit’s ongoing commitment to developing industry leading applications.
“As a firm we are driven by the need to provide the best service in whatever we do, which is how we remain at the cutting edge within our industry,” added Tim Bond, Head of IT at Capsticks. “We always source the best and most appropriate technology to support our vision and having looked at other solutions in the market, felt that Tikit’s Carpe Diem Next Generation was the best and most suitable solution to support us in our time recording over the coming years.”
Bond concluded: “The intuitive interface makes it simple to use and the seamless display across devices means no matter how or where our fee earners are recording time, whether on their laptop, phone or tablet, in the office, on a train, they are always presented with the same interface and are able to access all the features and functionality of the software. Having that level of integration and mobility was a key determinant for us”.
According to Sebastian Carey from Tecnolex, a strategic technology partner of the Carey firm, the largest in Chile, Carpe Diem Next Generation provided the most integrated and modern UX experience vs. other best-of -breed timekeeping solutions. The integrated all in one offering delivered via a consumer grade UI would translate to better adoption leading to more accurate and timely timekeeping by the professionals.
