ATOM was developed to simplify a critical, yet often neglected aspect of a firm. The accounting function can prove overwhelming and time consuming to a sole practitioner or small firm without the resources to engage a full time accounts department. Our aim is to alleviate the stress and expense associated with the accounting function by providing a cost effective online service that automatically updates, includes daily backups and allows small firms to focus on what they do best.
With a 15 minute setup, you'll be up and running before you know it. The simple setup doesn't require linking with other programs and the multiple screen access allows you to multitask.
As the voice of the legal profession, the Law Society represents the interests of over 27,000 members. So you’ll have the peace of mind that you’re in good company.
As a secure (SSL) cloud product on an Australian platform, ATOM is accessible using a PC or a Mac. As long as you have internet access, you can have access to all of ATOM’s features.
Our subscription based service can be tailored to either monthly or annual subscriptions with absolutely no locked contracts. You can leave whenever you like and not be tied down.
ATOM has ZERO hidden costs. Our low subscription covers not only your monthly access for 5 users, but support, updates, upgrades and daily backups as well.

We recommend an initial two hour training session to provide an overview of the functionality and to provide the initial setup up instructions. However, training sessions are optional.
ATOM is an intuitive product, designed for efficiency. So with this approach in mind you can get started with minimal training. Unlike many competitors in today’s market, there are no lengthy training requirements. While we charge a small fee for the initial training, the ongoing telephone support is absorbed by the monthly subscription.
Some products don’t allow you to start using them until you have completed at least a half day training session. Then they require additional follow up training sessions. All of this can become time consuming, incurring not only massive costs to your firm, but losses in productivity and lost potential revenue.

"We approached Intelligent Concepts Pty Ltd as they provided the accounting package we were looking for. Cost efficient, user friendly and easily understandable. The result was that we were able to maintain accounts with ease. Lyndall and her team were always available whenever we needed any support and the turnaround time to resolve queries was minimal. We would recommend ATOM to people who need software to maintain trust accounts in the Cloud as well as to get their money’s worth." - Vanessa DMello Accountant Forbes Accounting & Business Consultants Pty Ltd -
"As a new practice there were so many things to sort out. Intelligent Concepts were recommended as specialists in the legal industry, so I engaged their services on a number of levels. They recommended ATOM for my accounting needs and within 15 minutes I was setting up my matters and receipting my first trust account deposit. I’d heard so many sole practitioners complain about inflexible and expensive accounting programs, but my experience with ATOM has been the opposite to those of my colleagues. I couldn’t believe how seamlessly an accounting program could bring together all my trust and office needs and with the flexibility of being able to login from any location it means I’m not anchored to the office unnecessarily." - Matthew Lorkin Solicitor Sole Practitioner -
"My company underwent some drastic changes and due to the complete change of management structures, I required the expertise of an experienced business consultant with a sound track record. Strategy and solutions were essential. Intelligent Concepts introduced us to ATOM and we haven’t looked back. As a mobile solution to our accounting needs ATOM performs all our accounting functions for managing both the trust and office aspects of our firm. The flexibility means that irrespective of our location, we can record time or check a trust balance. We have peace of mind knowing that, as a Law Society approved accounting program, ATOM provides us with compliant trust account records" - Martin Ricci Solicitor The Law Practice Pty Ltd -
"As a new one-person legal practice I needed a bookkeeping system that was both professional and at a reasonable cost that is why I turned to ATOM and I have not regretted that decision. ATOM has been very helpful in keeping my Trust Account in compliance with regulations and their response to queries has been very prompt and professional. I can now concentrate on building my legal practice!" - TichPasipanodya Prudential Legal Solutions (ACT) -
"When I started my own practice without much choice, I was petrified about how I would manage the intracies of accounting, trust accounting and file management. There are many software options on the market but all those which I had worked with, did not work for me. Somehow the universe was kind to me. Atom's email came to me out of the blue. I was introduced to Lyndall. She made it possible. I cannot recommend ATOM LEGAL more highly for accountancy services for lawyers." - Judy Swan Swan Lawyers (NSW) -
"Before choosing our trust account software I tried a number of platforms. In my opinion, the ATOM platform is by far the most intuitive, user friendly and cost effective of them all. Trust accounting requirements for a principal are of utmost importance, and if you are looking for a platform which can make it easy for you, and save you time, ATOM can certainly do this. Aside from the platform, Lyndall and her team at Intelligent Concepts are friendly, responsive, professional, knowledgeable, and generous with their time. Furthermore, since my firm started using ATOM, various new features have also been added, thereby representing even further value for money. In summary, I would highly recommend ATOM and Lyndall." - Christopher Chang | Solicitor Director
