Remote access, customisation of interface and significant improvement since initial release thanks to very responsive support.

The fact that it is intuitive and very responsive. Also, the customer service is there when you need them and they are most helpful.

Since the software is out of its puberty, it is all great.

Cons

This may be partly down to needing further training. The problem is that bad habits are formed where the product is not easy or intuitive to use.

Visually it is quite unattractive. No mobile app and its mobile website is very difficult to work with.

Great and easy

Since the software is out of its puberty, it is all great.

Pros

Cons

At the moment there is very little I don't like.

Thread overall

Reviewed a year ago

It is a good experience when it does not freeze and has all its functions.

Pros

I really like the home page where you can see the latest info on new emails on files, the files you recently used and the important website links. Templates are very useful and also the preview when you click on a file in activity and doing a brief.

Cons

Not being able to use the full functionality such as scanning post and assigning to file, not being able to use the email in thread to send and receive attachments without the worry of it not going out or going in the unassigned emails, not being able to rename and date an attachment before dragging it in the thread add on to the file. Customizing fields I found a bit tricky. Not being able to use the call option if a client rang and being on the file.

Vendor response

Dear Carmen, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you are enjoying your Thread experience; our team will definitely be delighted to read what you wrote. You can indeed rename attachments and it's also possible to use the call option when working on a file, so I will be in touch to give you assistance with both functionalities in more detail. Talk to you soon - Barbara, Client Experience Consultant.

Excellent potential, but not there yet

Reviewed a year ago

It has definitely made our job a lot easier in many respects, however it is also very frustrating at times.

Pros

Cloud-based and integrated with Office 365. Very easy to make templates. Developers are responsive to suggestions and many of ours have been implemented.

Cons

It's not at all intuitive so intensive training is necessary. There are numerous bugs and aspects of it regularly become unusable. Impossible to opt out of some "new features" that don't suit us. Visually it is quite unattractive. No mobile app and its mobile website is very difficult to work with.

Good product

Reviewed a year ago

Very positive.

Pros

We started using Thread in the office in March 2020. It helped us to improve our case management and allowed us to switch ti remote work if needed. It was crucial in light of Covid19 pandemics as we could continue our work smoothly. It is also very helpful to have an access to all files while in court on during the business trip without the need of taking heavy paper files with you. It is a very good all-in-one tool for case management, outlook, calendar and tasks. It has a nice and easy to navigate interface and most of the functions are very intuitive and can be operated after no or very little training. We see a lot of improvement in the last year so i look forward for next upgrades.

Cons

There are still few bugs showing one and again which are being taken care of the IT support team. It does not work well on Linux

Thread Legal Software

Reviewed a year ago

I had lost some emails and was concerned about loss of data, and security

Pros

It is relatively early days for me, but I like the security of knowing that my files are backed up in the cloud and that I can access them everywhere on my phone. I see that the more information that is fed into the system, the better it performs. When the information is there, it does make creating documents quite fast and easy

Cons

I am using the system less than 6 months, and at present, there remains a temptation for speed to simply use my old system, which did rely on copying over precedent letters etc. That is faster in the moment. I do understand that will improve by sticking with it. Creating templates I find to be a bit fiddly, and the categories for contacts are a bit limited in some respects - a common one required for Irish legal practitioners would be an engineer or architect and I have to use consultant as the category, because there is no appropriate option

Vendor response

Dear Mary, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you are enjoying your Thread experience; our team will definitely be delighted to read what you wrote. As advised, it is indeed possible to add any contact type you wish (via Admin Settings in Thread) and if there is anything else like this you need assistance with, please don't hesitate to let us know. Thanks again for your kind words.

Review

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

Very easy to use and navigate and seems to link well with Microsoft applications

Cons

The Thread Email thread is a convoluted way of transferring emails. Once you upload you then have to go into Thread to change the name etc. The Tasks feature needs more work as you dont seem to get any reminders.

Vendor response

Dear Austin, thanks for leaving us such a wonderful review. We are thrilled that you are enjoying your Thread experience; our team will definitely be delighted to read what you wrote. You should indeed receive task reminders and it is also possible to rename emails so I will call to give you assistance with task and email functionality in more detail.

Potential to be great - still a work in progress

Reviewed a year ago

Overall experience fair. This may be partly down to needing further training. The problem is that bad habits are formed where the product is not easy or intuitive to use.

Pros

Recent integration of emails very useful

Cons

Booklet preparation and presentation not good. Attaching documents while sending emails very clunky. Information slow to load. Click to contacts should be front page.

Vendor response

Dear Sonia, We are delighted that you are enjoying the newly launched features in Thread and I will call to give you assistance with the booklet and email functionality in more detail. Talk to you soon - Barbara, Client Experience Consultant.

Brilliant but buggy

Not bad - Thread is a work in progress and will be unbeatable when it is up to full functionality.

Too many bugs, and the system slows to a crawl at times.

Probably not the best time to review

Reviewed a year ago

Frustrating but I appreciate that there are issues that need to be ironed out

Pros

The search function captures files and documents well

Cons

It doesn't really work completely for what we need. Mac integration is poor. Renaming of emails etc. is clunky, too many clicks.

Vendor response

Not using it long enough to comment

Pros
