Case Study: The Move To Aderant Sierra
Simplex BI: Aderant Sierra Transition Case Study
Over the past two years, Simplex BI had the opportunity to work with a
mid-size law firm to develop and implement a strategic plan for their practice management system.
The firm was running an early version of Aderant Expert 8.1. The conversion from Elite Enterprise to Expert 8.1 was fraught with problems and it took many months to stabilize the system.
With a bad taste in their mouth, the firm was hesitant to tackle upgrades, which, five years later, left them far behind the current version of Expert. They were dealing with critical bugs and performance issues. So, it was time to tackle this problem via an upgrade or conversion to another software.
Working With The Firm We Identified Three Paths Forward:
- Complete an on-premise upgrade to Aderant Expert 8.2 on new hardware.
- Execute Aderant’s “lift and shift” program to move to the Cloud-based system, Expert Sierra.
- Engage with a different vendor and convert to their software.
