Rocket Matter

Rocket Matter Legal Management Software has been providing services since 2007. It is a web application that is offered on the cloud. The system provides integration with many third party software such as Evernote® and Dropbox®, allowing users to gain extra benefit of seamlessly working with third party applications. Rocket Matter is aimed at the SMEs. However, there is no reason why larger firms cannot benefit from it. Rocket Matter provides Case Management and Practice Management Software, Document Management and Legal Billing.

The Software

There are many advantages of having a Web-Based system where users can access the system without having to install any software on their desktop. As the name suggests Rocket Matter is supposedly as fast as a rocket although this claim is yet to be verified by its users. Rocket Matter has managed to develop a very functional system built on the Microsoft .NET technology. They also have mobile applications that has been developed to work with the system. Rocket Matter has an inbuilt Calendar which also integrates with Google Calendar but no Email as part of the software.

Strengths

Rocket Matter is a simple yet effective system that is able to manage matters with easy navigation. Adding a new matter is very simple in that you simply click “Add New”, select matter and complete a few fields. The system is developed to be intuitive and orderly in that within the side panel the navigation menus can be used to access all the modules of the system. The system also has a simple dashboard and an on screen reporting module. Using Rocket Matter should give users a pleasant experience as everything is at hand. Rocket Matter also has Native Mobile Apps from which the system can be accessed.

Weakness

Rocket Matter does not provide many advance features such as Business Intelligence and its own Legal Accounts, although it covers simple billing. Users are expected to use their integrated third party accounts system of QuickBooks Accounts.

Support and training

Rocket Matter has an online Knowledge Base which can be accessed by users at any time. In addition, they have a support team that is ready to assist in terms of support and training. The team can be contacted via telephone, emails and messaging via their website. In addition, there a numerous video tutorial and manuals that can be accessed via their website.

The Future

Rocket Matter have been targeting the SMEs since their launch. They have gained good market share within this sector. However, we feel that they can develop their product further in light of technological advances in the last few years.

The Verdict

It is a simple and effective system focusing on the key features such as document and matter management, Calendaring and Billing. The software has a pleasant user experience and would be a good fit for any small to medium firms that are looking for a basic system. Firms looking for advanced systems and the ability to further develop and customise systems might find Rocket Matter restrictive.
