Fieldfisher's managing partner talks LexisOne: The hiccups, the record H1 revenue, and why LexisOne is better than SAP
"They were bloody good because they need us to be successful. They invested a huge amount of money and we've invested a huge amount of time because it's a ground-breaking project that the legal industry needs." - Fieldfisher's Managing Partner, Michael Chissick, says of the LexisOne team
LexisOne, which will be rolled out across Fieldfisher’s European network in 2018, is underpinned by the Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform and Fieldfisher has said that cost savings from using it are estimated to be £1.76m over five years. So far, the three offices above have gone live on core time and billing and are in the process of rolling out Power BI. Fee earners can’t yet bill or add time from their mobile but that is next on the roadmap.
Speaking to the Orange Rag, Fieldfisher Managing Partner, Michael Chissick said: "I’ve lived and breathed this project for three years and I was a technology lawyer before I became managing partner. People don’t realise how complex these ERP projects are. They think it’s like taking an iPhone out of a box and it leaps into life. It’s not like that and it’s not without its challenges. I can’t believe anyone could implement an ERP across multiple offices and 800 users without its challenges."
