SOS200Sussex law firm Coole & Haddock has signed up to SOS Connect from (SOS) as part of its ongoing organic growth plans.

With offices in Horsham and Worthing, Coole & Haddock is a full service law firm with approaching 50 people, with an emphasis on commercial property and corporate work.

Partner Iain Swalwell says the relative ease of adopting and implementing SOS Connect was a major factor in the decision to switch from its legacy provider.

“We did some careful research, looking at the market and paring our decision down to two or three providers,” he says.

“From the outset we liked the simplicity of SOS Connect – it looks good on the screen and is easy to follow. In addition the SOS team gave us a great presentation and had a more personal approach, leaving us reassured that they would deliver good training.

“SOS Connect can grow with the firm in the coming months and years. We have plans for organic growth and our new software those.”

David McNamara, managing director at SOS, said: “Coole & Haddock has a very clear vision of its future growth plans and how IT can help facilitate this process. The firm’s migration to SOS Connect is a key staging post in its continued success.”
