Umbria is setting the industry standard in terms of its innovative, core technology and its ability to transform legal process management. I am honoured to join the Prosperoware team and to help drive Umbria adoption within the EMEA region.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 23, 2016
Prosperoware, a leading enterprise software company delivering innovative technology that connects the business with the practice of legal and professional services, today announces the appointment of John Jones as Director of Consulting for the EMEA region. John will focus on leading Umbria implementations in the EMEA, as well as provide hands-on oversight throughout the Umbria implementation lifecycle.
Umbria functions as a core platform that connects law firm leadership and lawyers with their business development, pricing, finance, and human resources teams—allowing the firm to work in a more integrated manner. On the heels of impressive adoption in the US within the initial seven months of Umbria’s release, John’s appointment reflects this growing demand for Prosperoware’s Umbria platform in the EMEA region.
Highly regarded, John has more than 17 years of expertise in finance and technology within UK law firms. He has completed numerous consulting engagements both for major law firms and legal software providers, including acting as senior consultant on one of the largest successful PMS implementations to date at a Magic Circle firm. John has extensive experience advising clients and driving the implementation of e-billing, time entry, financial monitoring, and legal project management.
Financial monitoring and legal project management are both areas of substantial potential for large scale and innovative transformation of firms in EMEA, and can improve both firm profitability as well as the quality of service provided by firms to their clients.
Keith Lipman, President of Prosperoware, comments, “We’re pleased to have someone of John’s caliber joining the Prosperoware team to help meet the demand and enhance the growth of Umbria in the EMEA region. John has exceptional experience in the legal technology industry and we are confident that his expertise complements Prosperoware’s mission in EMEA.”
