When Maryland personal injury attorney Peter G. Angelos began his law practice over 40 years ago, he had one goal in mind: to affirm the rights of those who have suffered from medical malpractice, harmful products, and personal injury. The Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. has since grown into one of the most successful personal injury law firms in the country, with over 70 personal injury attorneys serving thousands of individuals throughout Baltimore, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., and Maryland. It was one of the first law firms in the United States to accept and litigate asbestos and lead paint cases, and it continues to take a stand against big business in order to protect the rights of working men and women. Dedicated to prestigious service and success, the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. has certainly made a name for itself as a firm that champions for the rights of the everyday person.
Obsolete Accounting Software
Due to the high number of cases their personal injury attorneys represent each year, accounting has become a critical part of the success of the law firm. When they learned their current accounting system was no longer being supported, the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. began looking for a software consultant who could successfully transition them to a new accounting system without disturbing their workflow. After discussing their needs with their developer and receiving multiple recommendations from a number of people, the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. began to consider partnering with Mindover Software.
“Our team had already determined that we wanted to use Sage software however the specific system was still up for debate,” recalls Dana Van Dyke, Controller of the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. “The challenge was finding a Sage consultant whose area of expertise fit our requirements. Customer service is a vital component of our business so we needed a company who would be responsive to our needs and get the job done quickly.” After several discussions with the team at Mindover, the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. determined that Mindover Software was just the company for which they were looking.
All Evidence Points to Sage 300 ERP
In addition to maintaining their accounting system, the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. relied on a custom application designed to manage the payment and receipts of client case expenses. Knowing the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. needed a system capable of supporting the custom application they maintained, Mindover Software recommended moving to Sage 300 ERP (formerly Sage Accpac). “We recommended Sage 300 ERP because we felt that the application environment was the best fit for them, especially considering their need to integrate the custom application to their accounting system,” recalls Lloyd Smith, President and Director of Operations for Mindover Software. “Sage 300 could easily tie into the custom application while continuing to adhere to all of the business logic and rules needed to successfully run an accounting system.”
The implementation went off without a hitch, and the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. were up and running quickly. “It was one of the smoothest implementations we have ever been a part of,” says Lloyd. “They migrated to an entirely new system and didn’t miss a beat. There were no support issues or training issues to speak of. The data migration was done over a weekend, and they were up and running the next week.”
Applause for Mindover Software
Today the Law Offices of Peter Angelos, P.C. is reaping the benefits of an up-to-date accounting system. “Sage 300 ERP has saved us a lot of time, particularly in the reporting and Accounts Payable process,” says Dana. “In our previous system, we couldn’t have multiple people doing the same thing at the same time. Now multiple people can be performing the same tasks at the same time without a problem.”
With peace of mind and improved office efficiency, the accounting department is now running smoother than ever. “Mindover Software is proficient at what they do,” says Dana. “They are friendly, trustworthy, and responsive to all of our needs. We know we can always pick up the phone and call them. Rain or shine, snow or ice, they will always find a way to get to us and fulfill our needs.”
