Barry Khan, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council
"Thank you for changing Norwel to allow multiple e-mails to be chosen and put into the system in one action (my record so far is 75 e-mails). This has saved a huge amount of my time and it will make it easier to convince staff to place all their e-mails onto the system."
London Borough of Barnet
"We have seen some great improvements in working practices with the automation of routine casework, and with the document register so easily accessible we have better management of current matters. The helpdesk support is also second to none, with quick response times and helpful and efficient staff."
Lancashire County Council

“Total integration with Word, Outlook Email/Diary as well as other products is fully automated without it being complicated, this leaves the users feeling in full control.”
David Corry, County Solicitor, Somerset County Council
“Somerset recognises how important a comprehensive case management system is to the efficiency of the practice. Norwel has worked closely with the Legal Services team to tailor the Case Management System to our specification.
Lawyers appreciate the ability to search and access case records quickly and easily, to record narrative and to save documents and emails into Norwel, while the reporting tool provides a way of extracting useful management information.
We have just upgraded to the Prescient system and recently introduced the Norwel Document Bundling module, both of which we hope will lead to substantial improvements in the efficiency.
The Norwel helpdesk always provides support when needed. Minor issues are sorted out quickly and major issues are resolved within a reasonable time scale.“
Surrey County Council
“Everything going well - Fee Earners are pleased with a system that provides both flexibility and ease of use.”

"Norwel's role has been key in delivering the financial success of this firm. They have a clear understanding of our business and have delivered focused information as well as reducing processing and administration time."
Kevin Goosman, IT Business Service Manager, Cobbetts LLP
After integrating the Cobbetts Connect CRM System with Norwel, Kevin Goosman commented on the performance of Norwel’s developer Phil Dobson:
“I wanted to thank you for your efforts a few weekends ago when we were all working hard over long hours to do what was necessary to get the Cobbetts Connect CRM system (Pivotal) up and running, fully integrated with Norwel, and ready for implementation that following Monday. I know you put in long hours on the Saturday. Nicola indicated to me that you really needed to get back home that day and I appreciate that you stayed on much longer than was ever originally expected. You then volunteered to return for further work on the Sunday.
I can honestly say that the project would not have gone live on the Monday without your dedication and flexibility.
I have personally thanked both Harry Dickinson (Software Director) and Alan Richardson (Sales Director) for your efforts and help but I am copying them on this email for good measure. I hope they appreciate your efforts as much as I do!”
Fiona Bruce, Senior Partner, Fiona Bruce LLP
"Norwel has proved to us that it understands not only city commercial firms but also the local high street. With some 30 staff Norwel have gone out of their way to tailor their products to our individual requirements."
James Hillard, Finance Director, Heatons Solicitors
"The experience has been very positive - the implementation was smooth, despite simultaneously fully changing both our hardware and IT infrastructure, the training has been excellent and I have been very impressed with the quality of the helpdesk and support."
Graham Smith, Managing Partner, Lees Lloyd Whitley
"Our relationship with Norwel is cemented by a common philosophy of forward-thinking, proactive and co-operative working."
Jim Thirkettle, Stephensons LLP
After the recent SQL Server Database upgrade, Jim Thirkettle commented:
"At meetings with outside network contractors, he (Mike Hutchinson, Norwel project manager) doesn't say a lot but when he does, he demonstrated that he really knew what he was talking about. In his own area of expertise he is very good."
Chris Stephenson, Senior Partner, Stephensons LLP
"Resilience is paramount - any down time impacts on profitability. During the last five years we have not experienced any down time what-so-ever, there have been no hardware failures and we've had no cause to utilise the back up facilities."
Jim Thirkettle, Stephensons LLP
"What I like about Norwel is their accessibility and response time - you don't always know who handles what, but you are confident that a query will drop into the right box and an answer will come out soon."
David Marshall, Managing Partner, Anthony Gold
“Overall, I think the new Prescient software is brilliant, it's intuitive and very easy to use. ”
John O'Connor, IT Manager, Anthony Gold
"I have nothing but praise for the helpdesk, I don't have to contact them often, but, when I do, I always find them to be prompt, helpful and very knowledgeable. I have worked in and run helpdesks for many years and have no hesitation in saying that yours is one of the best I have encountered."
John Cooper at Trowers & Hamlins said of the recent case/matter management:
"The Manchester staff are very pleased with the recent Case Management implementation and particularly impressed with James' input and expertise. There has been a measurable improvement in performance."
