The Implementation Process
We’ve successfully implemented GhostPractice at over 450 firms across South Africa and learned valuable lessons along the way. Over time, we developed and fine-tuned a unique implementation process and skill set that minimizes risk and disruption during implementation and maximizes the value that each client gets from GhostPractice. Each project gets the personal attention and dedicated resources it deserves.
The process starts with a professional demonstration of our product by sales staff who are part of our management team and have extensive experience in the legal industry. Decision makers and key staff at your firm will have the opportunity to see our product in action. Your questions will be answered by means of illustration, not just by comparing product features on paper, so that your firm can make a fully informed decision.
Decision makers will be provided with a cost estimate that is tailored to your environment at the end of the demonstration. And you will be shown how the way in which the process is managed offers your firm an opportunity that makes implementation virtually risk-free.

There are no upfront costs when implementing GhostPractice.
Our pricing structure is transparent. Your firm pays a monthly rental, based on the number of users and the elements of the system that they use. You will be provided with a cost estimate that is tailored to your firm’s specific needs and circumstances when we demonstrate the system to your firm’s decision maker(s).
Pre Go-Live and Post Go-Live
We made transitioning to GhostPractice as risk-free, simple and efficient as possible. Our implementation process has two phases:
Pre Go-Live and Post Go-Live
The initial phase, Pre Go-Live, usually takes place over a three-month period. During this time, we will analyse your firm’s data, operating processes and procedures, the technology you use, and your staff.
After we have gathered this information, we design an implementation strategy that strives to ensure that once your practice is using the GhostPractice legal practice management software, there is an increase is billables and efficiency.
Thereafter, we move to the Post Go-Live phase – this is usually a one-month phase where our staff are on-site at your practice regularly to make sure that each of your employees is comfortable with the using our software.
