Probate Plus assists in the administration of a deceased person’s estate and production of related forms/letters and documents, together with the accounts. It enables fee earners to keep the administration under control from day one and in a consistent matter across the practice. The system records all information relating to the matter as it arises so that the accounts are balanced at all times. The production of interim, final accounts and cash balancing at the press of a button makes this piece of software an invaluable addition to any practice or anyone involved in winding up estates. The cost effective pay-as-you-go pricing means there are no large up front fees and it’s easily scaleable from single to multiple users. Prices start at £299 plus VAT.
Note to system developers: Probate Plus can be controlled by 3rd party software (such as case management systems). Contact the company for more details.
