Andrew Forster has joined the senior management team at fast growing software company Riliance following another year of unprecedented success for the company.

Andrew, whose previous roles include the positions of MD of Professional Services and Sales Director at Iris Software will have full responsibility for sales and marketing at Riliance and will be charged with driving growth and expansion of products and services to the legal sector.

With over 1500 legal practices in the UK now using Riliance software products, and this only two years after the company launched its core risk and compliance software, the business has created an excellent platform to build on. Riliance Version 2 is due to hit the market during Q4 of this year and will see an upgraded HTML5 interface, enhanced reporting functionality and a significant upgrade to task management processes within the system.

Mark Gidge, CEO commented “Andrew has vast experience in a rapidly growing software company environment and his appointment will further strengthen our senior team as we continue to expand“

The business is consistently seeing over 100 practices each month and with over 40 of those signing up to the system it is clear that the market likes what it sees. 

“Riliance is at the cutting edge of risk and compliance management and our system is designed specifically to address all of the key aspects of this critical area of practice management, it is pleasing to see that many insurers are aware of and acknowledging Riliance on PII renewal forms, as availability of insurance becomes more selective we anticipate that firms will derive additional benefit from association and utilisation of our software “Gidge adds.
