The process to administrating criminal law clients was often cluttered, chaotic and time consuming, which meant more often than not it wasted money in a legal aid sector that has already suffered major fee cuts.
Accesspoint took the opportunity to develop an automated form which has been a big step in the right direction for the legal aid sector. The Police station attendance FormShare was created in order to save hours of police station admin work, which is usually done at a loss.
Reduced errors: Instead of taking handwritten notes, a digital form is completed by police station advisors to help gather the required information about the client and the matter, including arrest and custody details. This ensures accurate data each time!
Up to date records: The form is filled in before, during and after interviews, with recording advice given at all stages. Outcome details can be recorded, as well as bail information. Legal Aid and means criteria can also be gathered on the form. Finally, all time recording and mileage information can be captured.
Tikit P4W integration: It has been integrated with Tikit’s Partner for Windows so that, following duplicate checks, it automatically creates clients and matters, posts all-time records and saves all other information into the matter. Information gathered on the form can then be used to auto populate other forms and documents via case management.
