Claim Manager

The Claim Manager screen

The Claim Manager progresses the case through the claim and judgment. The system provides many features that help progress the case efficiently -

  • Consolidation of Debts into a Single Claim - An unlimited number of debts of the same type for a debtor can be consolidated into a single claim.
  • User Definition of Debt Type - The user may also define particulars of claim for additional debt types using the easy to use procedure definition facilities.
  • Calculation of Fees and Charges - These can all be set up to be automatically applied.
  • Calculation of Interest - The system calculates interest up to (and beyond) judgment at the rate that the user chooses for a case. An unlimited number of rate tables can be defined. Interest will be added to the debt balance. The system follows all of the rules for calculating post judgment interest, when this is required.
  • Standard Particulars - A wide range of standard particulars of claim are provided for both money and recovery of goods claims. Particulars for various forms of purchased debt and local authority matters are also available.
  • Form Production - Production of completed forms (including N1, N9 and N225)
  • Reversals - Automatic claim reversal and judgment reversal processes are precise and time efficient.
  • Instalment Payments - The user may create a schedule of instalment payments with weekly, fortnightly, four weekly, monthly, quarterly or unequal instalment frequencies. The system checks that each payment is received on time. If the defendant defaults on a payment, a letter to the defendant will be printed, and the user may choose what further action to take.
  • Settlements – Settlements can be agreed at any time and payment may either be by lump sum, or by instalments. Where appropriate, the system produces a consent order. If the debtor reneges, the settlement is withdrawn and the previous litigation procedure continues.
  • Client Letters & Emails – At various points in the procedure, the system keeps the client informed on the progress of each matter, either by producing a letter, or by sending an email automatically. (This facility can be disabled if it is not required).
  • Debt Ledger - The system maintains a financial ledger for each debt showing all debits and credits. Payments are allocated according to the method selected.
