This guide will go through managing your firm’s departments in Osprey Approach

Departments work as cost centres within Osprey, allowing you to monitor and manage profit and expenditure at a departmental level. e.g. a department named Conveyancing might encompass all the work types relating to conveyancing.

Viewing your Osprey Departments

To access the list of departments you have within Osprey, go to Supervisor > System Setup > Departments
