WIP Analytics



    One of the key challenges facing law firms is the ability get behind the risk, value and cash flow timeline of WIP. Firms can claim to have leading case management software, but many find it hard to get a detailed view of WIP to enable predictive insight into cash flow, disbursement spend and on-going value of WIP.


    ZebraLC has developed the use of RAMI analytics – a WIP risk analysis and financial forecasting tool. Our RAMI analytics is successfully used in bank refinance, M&A, diagnostics and business improvement projects in personal injury, clinical negligence and industrial disease as well as other non continent areas of practice.

    Using ZebraLC’s industry recognised ‘red, amber, green’ risk rated approach to WIP asset valuation, RAMI analytics can be implemented across any case management system including Proclaim.


    The solution is to get to real time data, enabling caseloads/matters to be tracked via prospects, quantum, indemnity risk, disbursement requirement, complexity, costs outcome and predictive timescales.
